WE'LL START WITH THE BIG NEWS.
Micah Hyde Meets Media (via HawkeyeInsider)
KIRK FERENTZ SPOKE BEFORE THE MEDIA. Here is the transcript for the press conference and the on the side portion. There's also video. I'll summarize bullet style:
- Christian Kirksey replaces Micah Hyde as a defensive captain
- The players vote for captain, Ferentz took Hyde's name off the ballot
- Student Code of Conduct will handle three *cited
- Ferentz says chances to win games doesn't factor into player disipline decesions
- The three had no previous troubles
- If they practice well, they will play
- Ferentz considers people involved (past history) and severity of the crime when determining punishment
- The team now has an adjusted curfew
- If Bullock practices well he's cleared to play this week
- Touch and go with B.J. Lowery and Austin Blythe
- Ferentz wants Bullock to develop as a running back before asking too much as a WR, etc.
- Red shirt is a possibility for Canzeri
- The Chicago trip was a good experience but still not a true road game
IOWA'S OFFENSE COULD BE MORE VERSATILE. With Damon Bullock returning to the backfield Iowa now has options. Bullock quickly racked up 280 yards on the season before suffering a concussion versus Northern Iowa. Since his injury, it's been Weismania in Iowa City. Bullock experimented at wide receiver as a freshman last year. He'll give offensive coordinator Greg Davis some lightning to counter Weisman's thunder.
