Iowa Loses In Miserable Fashion As Freeze-The-Kicker Move Backfires

That is a gif of pure misery. Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz tried to pull the ol' "freeze the kicker" trick in the final seconds of the Hawkeyes' game against Iowa State this afternoon. The Cyclones missed the first kick, but had another attempt because of Ferentz's timeout. On the second try, Ferentz's world slowly… »9/13/14 7:24pm9/13/14 7:24pm

Do You Know Why Iowa Got Rid Of Its Field Hockey Coach? Let Us Know

When Iowa fired field hockey coach Tracey Griesbaum last week, they did it in the style of a place that didn't want to talk about it. Officials announced the news during Iowa's football media day.

The weekend, as I watched the absurd denouement of the Northwestern-Michigan game, something struck me as familiar — beyond the now-routine bumblefuckery that inspires the Wildcats to turn fourth-quarter leads into triple-overtime losses. No, it wasn't simply that Michigan drove in the dregs of game clock to kick the… »11/20/13 8:09pm11/20/13 8:09pm

Iowa Basketball Player Throws Shoe, Nearly Decapitates Own Coach

Iowa's offense is dangerous. The Hawkeyes' Aaron White wasn't trying to plunk head coach Fran McCaffery after Northwestern's Alex Marcotullio lost his shoe during the second half yesterday.

University Of Iowa Suspends Two Members Of Wrestling Team After They Were Allegedly Caught Hunting Rabbits On Campus

Iowa Hawkeyes wrestlers probably reside in an awkward position. They're some of the best in the nation at their sport—the team won NCAA titles in 2008, 2009, and 2010—but they're also wrestlers, which means they inevitably carry all sorts of antibiotic-resistant strains of ringworm and staph and are likely avoided by… »11/21/12 1:25pm11/21/12 1:25pm
