I'm as loyal a guy as there ever was," Considine said. "And I think I get that from coach Ferentz. Just look at how he's treated those guys since they've been here and the loyalty that you see in this program. I'm loyal to coach Parker. He taught me the game of football.
I've never played against Oklahoma before. As a kid I've always admired Oklahoma; I've always thought Bob Stoops was a classy guy. We're going to play a great team with a great coach -- it's fun. It's a challenge, but I've always admired Oklahoma football.
Hoops. Tonight, the Hawkeye men's basketball team will open up Big Ten conference play with Purdue. Iowa has won three games in a row and defeated Purdue in the regular season finale last year. Devyn Marble is listed as the starting point guard, Zach McCabe still at center.
It's show-time. No more cupcakes. The Hawkeyes will face Purdue followed by Wisconsin, Minnesota, Ohio State, Michigan State and Michigan. All over the next two weeks. For Iowa to finish the season at .500 they will have to finish 8-10 in Big Ten play.
