THIS IS WHAT OUR HAWKEYES LOOK AT ALL WEEK.
ON TUESDAY KIRK FERENTZ DID SOME TALKING. Prior to the press conference he participated in the weekly Big Ten teleconference. Here are the teleconference notes. I'll summarize press conference notes bullet style (here is the transcript and the "on the side" portion):
- Same four captains (James, James, James and Micah)
- B.J. Lowery is "fine"
- Iowa State has very good linebackers
- Really didn't know what to expect out of Damon Bullock
- Ferentz thought the DLine got off to a "good start" in the game against NIU
- Melvin Spears is working back from injury
- Ferentz thought Vandenberg played well
- Team needs to improve, Iowa State is good, etc. etc. etc.
THE CEDAR RAPIDS GAZETTE CREW MADE THE TRIP TO AMES MONDAY. They have video of Cyclone players talking about the upcoming game with Iowa. The main topic was ISU student fashion. A.J. Klein doesn't like seeing Iowa t-shirts on campus. Also, Paul Rhoads did some yelling. Marc Morehouse has video of Rhoad's weekly yell-conference.
WANT TO SEE HOW THE OTHER SIDE LIVES? Little brother blog Wide Right Natty Light jumped straight
bullshit into hate week. They break down the first Iowa game with NIU and want us to cheer up. There's also a post on NIU losing their "Superbowl" and the fallout expected in DeKalb.
DAMON BULLOCK DOESN'T BELIEVE IN AIRBHG. "There's no curse" Bullock told the Cedar Rapids Gazette's Scott Dochterman. Bullock added, "You can look at like Brad Rogers and Jonathan Gimm. They've been here for the longest, and they haven't done anything. There's no curse, just bad decisions." To be fair, Rogers' heart condition sidelined him prior to Bullock's arrival on Iowa's campus.
BE READY DLINE, STEELE JANTZ IS COMING. Norhtern Illinois was a difficult test but this week's game will be even tougher. Dominic Alvis told Hawk Central's Ryan Scuhomel, "we can't have that slow start against Iowa State. We have to come out humping next week." Hopefully, Alvis doesn't plan to have sex with Iowa State, just beat them at football.
EDDIE VINCENT, PART OF FAMED STEUBENVILLE TRIO, DIES. Vincent arrived at Iowa in 1953 with Cal Jones and Frank Gilliam. The three players were part of a historic run in Iowa football history. Vincent was an all-Big Ten running back in 1955. He played briefly in the NFL and lived in Inglewood, California.
