IOWA HAWKEYES RUMORS & GOSSIP
The Iowa Hawkeyes had a football practice in West Des Moines this past Sunday and over 8,000 fans showed up. The sun was not shining and the skies were threatening rain in the hours leading up to the practice and it was raining before it was over. Had it been a sunny day, there might have been more than 10,000 people there.
While that’s not as many people that will show up for...
Next season, whoever starts under center for the Iowa Hawkeyes will be taking their first snaps ever at the FBS level. The Iowa quarterback race is filled with inexperience, making it the biggest question mark for Iowa as spring practice rolls on. With the No. 1 quarterback job on the line, will the steady yet [...]
Iowa let the fans and media in on an open practice before the usual one spring snapshot we normally get and this time they took their show on the road. 8,000 Iowa fans filed into Valley Stadium in West Des Moines to watch Iowa practice.
Here’s the obligatory ‘it’s only one practice so you can’t draw any real conclusions’ disclaimer.
MVP’S: If I had to pick a few...
Iowa quarterback Jake Rudock was named the co-front-runner alongside Cody Sokol to replace James Vandenberg in Kirk Ferentz’s pre-spring depth chart last week, and he believes it’ll stay that way heading into the regular season.
Rudock didn’t see a single snap as a redshirt freshman in 2012, but he’s ready to prove that he can lead the Hawkeyes offense for the next several...

Some of the weights that jumped out to me:
Jordan Canzeri at 192 pounds. I’ve been high on Canzeri...
To say the Iowa Hawkeyes have bad luck with running backs would be an understatement. The Angry Iowa Running Back Hating God (AIRBHG) has shown Kirk Ferentz’s backfield no mercy in recent years with seemingly countless running backs leaving the program, getting thrown off the team or suffering catastrophic injury. We can now add another [...]
After a 4-8 campaign in 2012, the Iowa Hawkeyes are searching for answers this spring to find more success in 2013. One of the biggest areas of concern for Kirk Ferentz and company is the pass rush, or lack there of. If the Hawkeyes hope to have any more success next fall, they will need [...]
Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz took in Wednesday night's NIT game and he let the camera know just how he felt by flipping it off with his middle finger.

Just a few observations of a University of Iowa bro, his diet Zima and his wiffleball bat: 1. Nice sunglasses band, man. You’re tailgating. You aren’t at a Wham! concert. And even if you were at a Wham! concert, those people would be making fun of you too. 2. How’d you get the Skittle in the Zima if you were only using the tiny hole at the end of the bat? Your loss...

OR, perhaps this really is the Iowa uniform – or at least something similar [...]
