FRAN MCCAFFERY TALKED HOOPS MONDAY. McCaffery offered several tidbits for us Hawkeye fans. First, he mentioned that Peter Jok might earn some more playing time. We also learned that Trey Dickerson has a knee problem that kept him out of the Iowa State game. Also, McCaffery mentioned the red-shirt situation with Ellingson.
Fran said they're still evaluating Brady Ellingson's situation regarding a redshirt— Scott Dochterman (@ScottDochterman) December 16, 2014
HERE'S SATURDAY'S GAME NOTES. Iowa and UNI are even at (2-2) these last four years. The Panther roster is full of familiar names like Morgan, Lohaus, Bohannon and Jesperson. Wait, forget that last one. The game is in Des Moines as part of the Big Four Classic. Iowa State and Drake is the under card.
THE SPREAD WILL BECOME AVAILABLE FRIDAY. Here's an early guess:

HEY LADIES. Lisa Bluder's squad remains in the AP Top 25 this week. Iowa is ranked #23.
BRANDON SCHERFF IS AN AP ALL-AMERICAN. That's a no-brainer, right? I mean, what silly media outlet would leave the Outland Trophy winner off their all-American list (cough ESPN)?
FOOTBALL RECRUITING IS HEATING UP. Perhaps, for teams not named "Iowa." There's still plenty of time until recruits sign on the dotted line. Blah, blah, blah, I just really wanted a reason to post this graph.
