KIRK FERENTZ WILL SPEAK. At 1:30 PM CDT Iowa's head football coach will talk to the media about the handful of practices in the books and the upcoming weeks preparing for the season. There may be breaking news but the odds are most of today's information is stuff we've already heard (e.g. Cam Wilson, Drew Clark, etc.). The media will get a chance to talk with assistant coaches and players too. There will be a recap of all the news tomorrow but seeing how things move in real-time these days we'll update some things here as the day moves on. So, check back or F5 after 1:30.
*NOTE* I'll update this post with tweet embeds in the comments so look below. I think the Big Ten Media day post got so full of embeds it slowed down the page load time. Also, you can close the comment if it's slowing your page. Deal? Okay.
APPARENTLY, SOME OF YOU DIDN'T GET YER FOOTBALL TICKETS. How many has Iowa sold? The ticket office declined to answer the Cedar Rapids Gazette which according to Scott Docterman is "unusual." According to a Gazette source Iowa has yet to sellout a game this fall.
OKAY, WELL (UPDATE 1:25 PM)
Iowa tickets aren't that bad. 59K for the season. I don't think that's too bad.— marcmorehouse (@marcmorehouse) August 8, 2013
DREW OTT IS EPIC BEARD MAN.
GREG DAVIS TALKS QUARTERBACKS.
MORE PRACTICE PICS. With each practice comes a new series of pictures from Hawkeye Sports. Hey, Ike Boettger is a tight end. See the latest here.
DOM ALVIS TALKS ABOUT THE DLINE. The days of just helmets are over as the practices now include pads. Alvis talked to Hawkeye Sports about getting to hit his teammates for the first time this fall.

YET, ANOTHER IOWA HOOPS ARTICLE. Remember the NCAA tournament? Last year we were talking bubble. This season we could be talking about a tournament run. Fran McCaffery told Sports Illustrated, "I think we're built for the journey." So are we fans, Fran. So are we.
