If they’re out of scholarships for 2020, then the coaches have to do something with their time besides recruiting. Falconry only seems like the next logical step.
Celebrating horizontal football since 2011
I was reading an article by a prominent sports-journalist, not to hawk her scoop, and her take is that Iowa football is a beakon of tradition. Not sure if the alt unis are necessary.
I hear she's quite talon-ted.
She has, you know, a bird's eye view.
We’ll finally figure out how to beat the Badgers!

If a player is not carrying some kind of bird of prey in the tunnel for EVERY game next season, there is something wrong.
No eagles, owls, or falcons, please. Those birds are taken and I'd like to avoid trademark infringement suits.
You are right. My apologies.
I don't think shrikes are taken (though I didn't research it), so those might be okay. Also possibly acceptable are ospreys, kites, and harriers.
What about Caracaras?
Why don't we bring a golden eagle out onto the field and tell Southern Miss to eat shit if they complain?
CAUTION: May go on prolonged rants about Gary Barta and Bruce Harreld without warning.
Herky with a jetpack?
Herky on a zipline flying over the tunnel to start the swarm?
Scratch that. Herky flying in on an Iowa themed hang glider.
Now we just need to get him some pants that fit and we're all set.
Oh. They don't have pads in them. Sorry for the dumb.
The uniforms are not bad, and the hawk is kind of adorable. Could definitely do without the black swoosh on the front of the socks, that looks stupid. Agreed on pre-game hawk deployment and flying around shenanigans, that would be cool, if the hawk could stand it.

I love the mid-1990s banana peel jerseys.
These new ones are hideous.
I never wanted to Fire Ferentz. Good bye and good luck, Gary.

Spencer Lee approves.
Those are some cawfully nice uniforms.

What song will they play???
They cannot play Back in Black.
There is nothing more exciting and infuriating than Iowa football
Eye of the Tiger(hawk)
Coldplay...Yellow???? Sad face
To be sure, footbaw is a few decades behind the grapplers. IIRC, this was the team poster from 82 or 83, easily one of the top 5 in the pantheon of Hawk posters.
Perhaps now we can finally get an answer to this question.
Dang. I thought that link would tell us what happened in Jeddah.
Eppy's sleeve blends in quite nicely with the hawk wing.
