ESPN RELEASED SOME EARLY BOWL PROJECTIONS. San Diego or Florida? My vote goes to San Diego and the Holiday Bowl (yum, beer). ESPN's Brett McMurphy believes Iowa will face Florida in the Capital One bowl next January. Mark Schlabach says it's the Holiday Bowl versus Washington.
SPEAKING OF PROJECTIONS. Brandon Scherff is Iowa's lone representative on Eleven Warriors' best guess at the Big Ten's first team all-Big Ten list for offense. Scherff is probably a no-brainer. Some other Hawkeyes that could sneak onto the list by seasons end? How about Austin Blythe or Kevonte Martin-Manley?
ATHLON RANKS IOWA #26. Iowa is the first team to not make the cut for Athlon Sports Top 25. Iowa comes in at #26 on their preseason poll. Iowa is a legit contender for the Big Ten West according to the article.
HERE'S A HOT RUMOR. Pat Harty says he's "hearing" Barkley Hill is gone baby gone. A rumor popped up on Panthernation and made its way to Hawkeye Report. Surely, Harty being the top notch reporter he is, wouldn't cite message boards as his source and contact the player or a person close to him before announcing such a thing on a public forum like Twitter.
Hearing that Iowa RB Barkley Hill is transferring to UNI. Makes sense with Iowa's depth at RB and with his connections to Cedar Falls.— Pat Harty (@PatHarty) May 28, 2014
