GET READY FOR CAMPY PICS AND SIDE STORIES. It's Iowa media day which means the local media will have a chance to visit with Hawkeye footballers and snap action photos and learn of moped rides. The team kicked off camp last night with meetings. Practice gets going today.

IF YOU MISSED THIS LAST WEEK, GET READY FOR CAMP.
ALSO, FERENTZ TALKED HAWKEYES ON ESPN.
SO, WHAT ARE SOME HOT TOPICS FOR CAMP? What should we follow the closest? Marc Morehouse gives us five key items: C.J. Beathard, middle linebacker, Jordan Lomax, Sean Welsh and the punter spot. Steve Batterson has a top four. He is watching Welsh at guard, the quarterback battle, the corner positions and also kicking/punting.
THE PTL FINISHED UP LAST WEEKEND. Brendan Stiles, of Hawkeye Drive, has a complete recap and stats for the Summer league. We didn't follow the league as closely this year and this is a great recap if you're into rec league stuff.
MOAR RANKINGS AND SUCH. Brandon Scherff made ESPN's Big Ten blog's top five players. That also placed Scherff in the top 25 of all of college players according to ESPN.
NFL.COM IS RANKING COLLEGE FOOTBALL TEAMS. Iowa didn't break into the first coaches Top 25 but they're top 15 according to NFL.com.
SOMETHING LEFTOVER FROM LAST WEEK. This is interesting from Ferentz. Iowa would probably lose Iowa State off the schedule to pull this off.
Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz believes B1G will eventually go to 10 conference games. "Think it will happen in near future"— Brett McMurphy (@McMurphyESPN) July 31, 2014
