Note: Not from last night PTL Prime Cuts 7-23-12 (via HawkeyeInsider)
AARON WHITE AND ERIC MAY DIDN'T WIN A REGULAR SEASON PRIME TIME LEAGUE GAME. Their PTL team went 0-5 and entered the league's two round playoff with the #4 seed. That didn't stop the Culver's/Iowa City Ready Mix squad from going 2-0 and winning the PTL championship. Hawkeye newcomer Anthony Clemmons dropped in 30 points in the win. May and White each added 22. Jarryd Cole and Melsahn Basabe each recorded a double-double in the loss. Mike Gesell had 24 points.
Aaron White earned league MVP honors. He averaged 27.3 points and 13.3 rebounds per game. Incoming freshman Mike Gesell averaged over eight assists per game and added an impressive 21.7 ppg.
Scott Dochterman gives us his impressions now that the Prime Time League is finished. He also predicts minutes for next year's team. Mike Gesell should be Iowa's starter at the point guard spot and Doc gives Clemmons 14 minutes per game as a backup. Dochterman thinks Kyle Meyer will red-shirt and the center position will be Woodbury's to split with Olaseni.
BIG TEN FOOTBALL MEDIA DAYS ARE TOMORROW AND FRIDAY. The Des Moines Register's Randy Peterson has a brief preview of what to expect. Last year Nebraska was the newcomer and the hot topic. This year it will obviously be Penn State. For Iowa news, perhaps we'll find out if Greg Garmon will be suspended. There's always personnel updates from Coach Ferentz and we'll see what he thinks about the new season.
JAMIE POLLARD IS UP TO HIS HI-JINKS AGAIN. If you recall, Pollard placed "Cyclone State" billboards around Iowa a few years back. There's new billboards going up in Des Moines, Waterloo and Cedar Rapids. These will salute former Hawkeye AD and current Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby.
MONDAY I LINKED PART I AND II OF MARC MOREHOUSE'S EXCELLENT INTERVIEW WITH COACH FERENTZ. Here is part III of the 40 minute interview. Again, there is a transcript and video. In this final post Ferentz discusses his and his son's future.
ESPN'S BIG TEN BLOG IS RANKING OFFENSIVE LINES. Iowa's young OLine comes in at 7th on their list. James Ferentz was the only Hawkeye to break their top ten of individual rankings posted in Monday's INP. I know these guys are young but I think this is a little low.
