Remember the fourth-and-3 against Purdue last season? QB James Vandenberg threw to TE Zach Derby, who was cut down after a 1-yard gain.
Thanks a lot Marc. I had successfully blocked that out of my mind.

“I want to say that this man has the drive and will bring the Hawks back.”
No, he doesn’t.

BTW, that would be a 15 yard penalty on Tate this year.
Ummmmmmmmmm….no it wasn’t. XP was the smart play there. You’re still only two scores down (TD with 2PT + FG). 28-18 is every bit as meaningless as 28-17. The real coaching blunder was not kicking the FG at the end instead of going for it on 4th down. That makes it 28-20 and then you [...]
team that allows 349 rushing yards, the most since 433 at Indiana in ’04, isn’t good at math and has serious football questions to answer.
They didn’t play Indiana in 2004. I assume that was supposed to be 2000?
You have Floyd right at #2, but the Jug is the best because it is the oldest and has the coolest origin story. I would keep the bucket at 3, but drop the Axe. That thing is only like 50 year old anyway. Way too new to have an substantive meaning yet.

I sure wish Ferentz would get fiery and show some emotion for once.

Nice article Mike, was a fun read. I just remember the game sucking. In hindsight, you could see that Iowa a typically stout defense but a horrific offense. That Jake state line is just epic, and a great microcosm of his career. Somebody said he was playing professionally in Germany right now, but I haven’t [...]
You had a couple of beers with a player, during a bowl trip, before he played in the game (and yes, I understand it wasn’t immediately prior to taking the field)?
Wonder what the coaches would have to say about that.
This is the guy I am most excited about in this class. You are so right that Iowa fans need something to be able to rally around right now, and I for one can’t wait to scream my lungs out while watching this kid in the black and gold. Welcome to the family, Reese, and [...]
Chuck Long was already shoved out the door by Kirk once. That’s how O’Keefe became QB coach in the first place.
I am continually amazed how people can throw his name out there without having the slightest clue what they are talking about.
