PTL Video #1 6/19/2012 HawkeyeDrive.com (via brendanstiles)
FIRST, HE SAID HE'D BE THERE BY NOW. Greg Garmon, incoming running back freshman-to-be said he'd be in Iowa City last Sunday. He's not. Lucky for us Iowa fans we're used to this. But, what's a summer without a little running back drama? There's still running backs on the current roster. Marc Morehouse details the rest if you need a refresher. As for Garmon, there's this:
Greg Garmon just responded to my text message asking when he plannned to be Iowa City with the following response: "Idk yet."— Pat Harty (@PatHarty) June 19, 2012
THE PTL SESSION HAS BEGUN. Brendan Stiles also has a full recap along with several more videos like the one above at his Hawkeye website HawkeyeDrive.com. We get our first look at four freshmen Hawkeyes as Adam Woodbury, Mike Gesell, Kyle Meyer and Anthony Clemmons make their PTL debut. We also get a look at walk-on and Wisconsin transfer Jarrod Uthoff.
NOT TO OVER ANALYZE STATS. But Zach McCabe (or McKingsbury) hit 7-10 three point shots last night on his way to a game one high of 29 points. Freshman Mike Gesell had 27 points and five assists in his PTL debut. Jarrod Uthoff had a double-double with 13 points and 13 boards. Aaron White had the most impressive stat line with 40 points and 16 rebounds.
ADAM WOODBURY: 2 POINTS. His debut in the PTL wasn't easy as he matched up with former Hawkeye and Iceland pro Jarryd Cole. Cole gave Woodbury a taste of Big Ten life battling him all evening. Cole was asked about Woodbury following the game and said,
"He was getting into foul trouble, he's going to have to tone that down a little bit and figure out what he can and can't do,"
Tweets from North Liberty tabbed Woddbury with seven fouls.
"He definitely has the potential. I love his potential. He's long. He's athletic. We really didn't see a lot of that tonight, but we will get to see that."
VEGAS HAS SET THE OVER/UNDER ON IOWA FOOTBALL'S WIN TOTAL AT EIGHT. Always double-down on 11 and always, wait, this is a difficult bet. The smart bet on the Hawks appears to be the under. Wisconsin leads the Big Ten with a projected 9.5 wins. Ohio State is next with nine. Iowa State, if you are curious, is set at 4.5.
