FOOTBALL PRACTICE STARTED FRIDAY. HawkeyeSports.com has been busy updating us with pics and videos. The first set of photos, from Friday's action, includes newcomers Barkley Hill, Andre Dawson and new graduate assistant coach Kelvin Bell. Saturday's pictures include Greg Garmon, Jaleel Johnson and Cody Sokol. Sunday's set inlcudes Maurice Fleming, Michael Malloy and C.J. Beathard.
THERE'S VIDEOS TOO. Greg Davis is GoHawks.com's third coach to be profiled in a Coach's Speak video. Erik Campbell talked to Hawkeye Sports following Iowa's first practice of 2012. Coach Lester Erb talked running backs following Sunday's practice. Coach Doyle published a video of Brandon Scherff going HAM in the weight room. Also, following practice day number two, Christian Kirksey talked to Hawkeye Sports.
BRIAN FERENTZ HAS BEEN TWEETED UP A STORM. Nothing news breaking but still, here are some examples:
Getting ready for the 2pm meeting with our guys - work continues on the 2012— Brian Ferentz (@CoachBFerentz) August 4, 2012
Very up-tempo this morning. We are making progress but have a long way to go.— Brian Ferentz (@CoachBFerentz) August 4, 2012
TODAY IS IOWA FOOTBALL MEDIA DAY. Ferentz will speak at 1:30 pm CDT and you can watch on Hawkeye Sports ($). We'll update the comments section here if news breaks and of course, a complete recap will be available in tomorrow's INP.
IT'S HIS TEAM. Ryan Suchomel, of the Des Moines Register, writes that James Vandenberg is ready to carry the load. Vandenberg graduated this Summer and has more time to focus on football. That strategy seemed to work for Ricky Stanzi even though the record in 2010 wasn't what he had hoped. Vandenberg wants to rectify his road record and losses against rivals Minnesota and Iowa State.
FASTEST WAY TO A MAN'S HEART IS THROUGH HIS STOMACH. Does that hold true for football prospects? Iowa is going to find out. Last weekend, Iowa invited current football verbal commits along with several other 2013 and '14 prospects to a BBQ.
