NO FRAN, NO PROBLEM. Iowa easily handled Northwestern last night. So far, Iowa is taking care of business against the lower half of the Big Ten. Iowa got a double-double out of Aaron White (18 points, 10 rebounds). The Hawks also got 10 rebounds from Melsahn Basabe. Iowa travels to Columbus Sunday to take on Ohio State for a national audience on CBS.
THE HAWK LADIES GOT THEIR FIRST CONFERENCE WIN.
BRACKETOLOGY. Joe Lunadi released a new version of his popular "Bracketology" yesterday. Iowa is a six seed in this latest version. If this were March, Iowa would face Kansas State in round one and have a possible match-up with Duke in round two.
TWO IOWA FOOTBALL ASSISTANTS WIN COACH OF THE YEAR AWARDS. Football Scoop announced that LeVar Woods and Jim Reid are their Linebacker Coach(es) of the Year. Football Scoop had previously only mentioned Woods as a finalist but he sent them a tweet asking they include Reid. It's a great honor for both coaches.
NOT SO FAST ON THE BRIAN FERENTZ TO TEXANS TALK. Coaching Search dot com reported yesterday that Brian is staying at Iowa.
FOOTBALL TICKET PRICES WILL INCREASE. Iowa added $1 per game to football tickets for this fall. Student tickets will remain the same price. Students will have the option of purchasing a package that does not include Nebraska if they plan to leave campus for Thanksgiving break. That gives Iowa the chance to sell more tickets to the general public for the $70 premium price.
IOWA FOOTBALL WILL HOST WYOMING IN 2017. In a one game deal, Iowa will host Wyoming for the season opener in 2017. Athletic Director Gary Barta came to Iowa from Wyoming so this makes sense. Iowa follows Wyoming with Iowa State and concludes the non-conference schedule with North Texas.
AH, HERE WE GO. Ameer Abdullah announced he will return to Nebraska for his senior season yesterday. You can now expect the National Championship talk to begin. ESPN is helping Husker Nation, Brian Bennett pegs the Huskers as the early favorite in the Big Ten West. Rinse, repeat. (psst....38-17)
THERE'S A NEW SERIES CALLED HAWK 2 HAWK. Former Hawkeye Nate Kaeding sits down to talk with another former Hawkeye, Marshal Yanda.
The Dan Gable documentary "On The Mat" is on ESPN at noon EST on Saturday. Thanks to @UndercardSuper for pointing this out.— Mike Riordan (@coachmjr) January 8, 2014
