The Cy Hawk game has always been one of my favorite games each year of Iowa football. It's what sports is about in my opinion, bragging rights. Sure the Minnesota vs Iowa rivalry has more consistent history. But I don't work, go to church, or interact on a daily basis with any Minnesota fans. Growing up we often had essentially a second super bowl party with our ISU fan friends for the Cy Hawk game. Cool that someone put together a documentary on the origin of the trophy. However it does bring back terrible memories of that farmer and kids trophy that was unveiled at the fair a few years back and then basically burned and buried for the rest of time because everyone thought it was a stupid trophy.

We have some OL that can really move and get out in front on a screen this year.

Is it still breaking news worthy on the scroll if its almost the only thing running on the scroll for an hour?

There seemed to be an easy lane to do a QB sneak to the right of the center. Why not just do that rather than call TO?

Gotta convert a few 1st downs on this drive and at least flip the field position.

FS26 backup is a walk on. We have a log jam at LB so we should have plenty of bodies to throw at that spot. The Dline also needs to get some pressure on the QB. Iowa's defensive scheme is built on getting consistent pressure with only the front 4. Maybe a few more blitz looks would keep the offense off balance.

Hawks by a million. Also today has been a terribly slow day waiting for Hawkeye football to start.

I'm curious to see who they hire. I agree that having a more defensive minded coach would be beneficial for the Hawks. I also think that having some youth added to the staff would be good. Dean Oliver would be a good fit. I'm sure that Horner and Gatens are other names that we will see as possibilities. Not really defensive minded coaches though.

I think the 2017 Iowa win over Iowa State was one of the better recent football games. Granted it didn't come in a great year like some of the other games being showed, but it was sure fun to watch.

Cook has been a mid 2nd round pick on NBADraft.net mock drafts most of the year. He was also ranked 69th by SI.com in January. As some players pull out of the draft I think there could be a spot for him in the mid to late 2nd round. I think his game fits better in the NBA than it did in college.
