This week's kid captain is Taylor Durham. You can read all about Taylor on Hawkeyesports.com.
Iowa's honorary captain will be former Hawkeye Vernon Rollins. Again, you can read more about Vernon on Hawkeye Sports.
Hawkeye Drive's Brendan Stiles was at this morning's I-Club event. On HD he has a video of Ferentz talking to the folks at the breakfast.
Some random notes from Hawk Talk Wednesday night:
Nolan MacMillan is now practicing with the team. The time frame on Mac joining the lineup is unknown.
Brad Rogers also appears to be on his way back. A return for Rogers may still be weeks away.
BJ Lowery is also on track to get back, perhaps before Penn State.
Also, Ferentz says Damon Bullock might get more than the one carry he had against Pitt.
