Wednesday Afternoon Hawkeye Links | Plus Hawkeye Message Board Rumors
I guess it is silly to think that Brandon Wegher would be the only rumor/gossip topic of August in Iowa. There was a short lived Adam Robinson rumor, that may have had a tiny bit of truth to it. Wade Leppert left the team, sadly that drew little interest, but was true. Then there was last night...
That's when InfiniteHerky decided to start a thread on HawkeyeReport which reached 5 pages-before being removed- that was titled 'Starter injured in today's practice."
The rumored starter was safety Tyler Sash. He was reported (by random message board members) to have his arm in a sling, a cast on his arm, and even a broken wrist. Posts containing this information appeared at Hawkeye Report, Hawkeye Lounge, and Hawkeye Nation.
As of this morning, Rob Howe of Hawkeye Insider was reporting that Sash is fine. Marc Morehouse also tweeted that there are no broken bones. Stand down.
There are catagories for these types of things, it's either Drew Tate's strained oblique or Drew Tate's broken leg. This Sash rumor appears to be in the latter.
What was perhaps lost in all the scuttlebutt, was that true freshman Austin Gray has left the team.
