Hawkeye Football today. Hope for the players sake it isn't hotter than the surface of 10,000 suns that day, like it is today.
On to Hawkeye related news/links:
According to CBS.com, NFLdraft's Rob Rang and Chad Reuter have a certain Hawkeye at #4 on their 2011 mock draft list. I'm fairly confident you will know who it is.
Andrew Logue of the Des Moines Register is at # 8 for his Ten Iowa Hawkeye storylines: No. 8, the schedule. Andrew has a nice break down of Iowa's upcoming opponents.
Marc Morehouse talks to new verbal commit Jake Duzey and says "Duzey’s OK with long list of tight ends."
Speaking of Morehouse, the Gazette team is at #3 today on its Top Games of the Ferentz Era.
Morehouse: My No. 3 — 2002 Michigan
Readers’ No. 3 — 2002 Michigan
My No. 3 game in Ferentz Era — Capital One Bowl
Doc’s No. 3 — 2005 Capital One Bowl
At the Gazette are a couple of other stories, Scott Dochterman writes that Senior OL Julian Vandervelde now an offensive leader for Iowa. I predict a bounce back season for JV. An upper body injury like the one he suffered last season drastically reduces your upper body strength.
Mike Hlas is asking his readers Where do you want the Big Ten 2011 football title game to be held? I seriously can not believe Detroit is a contender for this.
Morehouse, who is apparently paid by the word on Wednesdays, also takes a look back at Iowa's 2006-07 recruting class. Pretty nice breakdown of classes and contributors.
There is reason to turn to the ESPY's tonight. BHGP writes that ESPN will be presenting the Ed Thomas family with the Arthur Ashe Courage Award.
ESPN.com blogger Adam Rittenberg takes another look at his Top 25 Players list. The Berg does a breakdown of how many players per team, how many, oh he's just stretching a story in the dead of summer.
Black Hearts Gold Pants have a POLL! And they'd like you to vote. In Iowa-Penn State 2008 BHGP asks what happens if Daniel Murray misses that final kick. I know what happens, half the state wants Coach Ferentz's head for the "gut feeling" and switching kickers.
If you are living in Chicago or near, the University of Iowa I-Club day is Monday, July 19th. Check out DrinkWrigleyville.com for more details.
