The Iowa Hawkeyes have been on the struggle bus for more than two weeks now. With sharpshooter CJ Fredrick sidelined, the Hawkeyes have looked unusually stagnant on offense and the defense continues to be well below par. But Fredrick is rumored to be available for Iowa’s rematch with Rutgers on Wednesday night. Could his return mean Iowa finally gets things rolling?
Or will Ron Harper Jr. have another unreal night in Carver-Hawkeye Arena as Iowa continues to wilt away from the Big Ten title contender we hoped we were getting? Pessimism is abound in Hawkeye Nation and most of you likely answered with the latter. We’ll know which prevails soon enough.
