THE BIG TEN NETWORK IS CURRENTLY IN IOWA CITY. There's tweets currently coming from practice and BTN Live will have a recap later tonight. You can also tune into the BTN right now to enjoy 2013 Iowa Football victories against Iowa State and Nebraska if you wish. Let's embed a Twitter list with some of the BTN crew for updates from today's practice. This list will update with pics and insight from Tom Dienhart and Dave Revsine as they tweet from practice.
First team D: Hardy, Davis, Trinca-Pasat, Hardy up front; Bower, Alston, Spearman at LB; Mabin, Lowdermilk, Lomax, King at DBs. #Hawkeyes— Tom Dienhart (@BTNTomDienhart) August 19, 2014
Sounds like backup QB C.J. Beathard may get a series or two in games. He has looked good behind Jake Rudock. #Hawkeyes— Tom Dienhart (@BTNTomDienhart) August 19, 2014
Always fun to watch Kirk Ferentz coach line play. It's the most fired-up you'll ever see him— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 19, 2014
Matt Vandeberg just hauled in perfectly thrown bomb from Rudock beating Fleming. For tm that needs to stretch the field - very encouraging— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 19, 2014
I like CJ Beathard a lot. I think Iowa has two nice options at QB— Dave Revsine (@BTNDaveRevsine) August 19, 2014
And you can get a full summary of their visit here. TV coverage of their visit airs on BTN at 5 PM CT.
OTHER STUFF. Riley McCarron confirmed on his Facebook page that he did have surgery. His injury is assumed to be the collarbone. McCarron is like out for 6-8 weeks.
COULD! So he's saying there's a chance.
The question was name a team outside current top 25 that COULD make a run-I said Iowa-between exp & sched Hawks have a shot to have great yr— Kirk Herbstreit (@KirkHerbstreit) August 17, 2014
DAMOND POWELL IS BACK. Powell appears in yesterday's practice pics. That's good news for his return this season.
