ROSSWB ASKED THE QUESTION. Should Iowa Baseball Replace Jack Dahm? Following a 23-27 season (10-14 in Big Ten play) Dahm signed a one-year contract to remain Iowa's head baseball coach.

FOR AWHILE THERE WE WERE'NT SURE WE'D SEE HIM AGAIN. But Brad Rogers is back healthy and working out with the team. He missed summer workouts last season while doctors observed his heart and health. Rogers played nine games last season but admits he was out-of-shape when he returned.
