GREG GARMON FACES THE JUDGE. Garmon plead guilty to possession of drug paraphernalia Wednesday in Erie, Pennsylvania. The judge dropped two other charges and ordered Garmon to pay a $309.50 fine.

ESPN'S BIG TEN BLOG IS ANALYZING IOWA'S FOOTBALL SCHEDULE. Here's the rundown from Brian Bennett. Northwestern is a trap, Iowa State is the toughest non-conference game and Central Michigan is the snoozer. Can't argue with that.

2002 IOWA FOOTBALL IS IN THE FINALS. That's over at Off Tackle Empire where they've simulated their choice for each Big Ten team's best teams. 2002 Iowa defeated 1997 Michigan in the semi-finals and will face 2008 Penn State. No word if Daniel Murray will make a surprise appearance.

NO PRESSURE FOR MIKE GESELL. Scott Dochterman says the incoming Hawkeye hoops freshman feels no pressure. Gesell will likely be Iowa's starting point guard from day one. Gesell told Doc,

FRAN MCCAFFERY RETURNS TO HIS OLD STOMPING GROUNDS. McCaffery took a trip back to Loudonville, New York, to visit family and make a stop by his former school Siena. Fran talks about his contract a little bit and says he's also in the area to do some recruiting.

ESPN'S BRIAN BENNETT SAYS KEENAN DAVIS IS THE BIG TEN'S SECOND BEST WIDE RECEIVER. First on his list is Wisconsin's Jared Abbrederis. Bennettt included tight ends with the wide receivers and C.J.

THE PATRIOTS SIGNED TWO HAWKEYE FREE AGENTS. Now, both Brad Herman and Markus Zusevics are on the injured list. Herman tore his Achilles and Zus failed a physical. Zusevics still hasn't recovered from a torn pectoral at the NFL Combine and was placed on the Patriots non-football injury list.

MORE WATCH LIST MANIA. James Vandenberg was selected for the Davey O'Brien Award watch list. The Davey O'Brien Award goes to the nation's top quarterback. The last Hawkeye quarterback to win the award was Brad Banks in 2002.
