There comes a moment in every fan’s life when they realize that certain power programs’ claims that they can’t afford to pay players don’t stand up. I hope this is someone’s moment!
Faith Ekakitie, a rising senior defensive lineman at Iowa, was minding his own business—he had taken a walk to a park to play some Pokémon Go, as one does. That’s when he was confronted by Iowa City police with guns drawn.
Adam Woodbury’s tip in as time expired in overtime delivered the Iowa Hawkeyes to a 72-70 win over Temple in a 7-10 first round matchup. Iowa overcame a lousy 34.8% shooting percentage on the day to down the Owls.
Iowa 184-pounder Sammy Brooks beat Nebraska’s T.J. Dudley to win the Big Ten Championship Sunday. After his victory, Brooks gave thanks to the big guy up top: his mullet.
The biggest news from this year’s NFL scouting combine is obviously Iowa kicker Marshall Koehn’s record-setting 40-yard dash time.
The notoriously “edgy” Stanford marching band performed a skit full of dumb hick stereotypes during halftime of Stanford’s 45-16 thwacking of Iowa in the Rose Bowl. Despite the fact that the skit wasn’t particularly good, funny, or unexpected, everybody lost their goddamn minds. Iowa fans got mad, Rose Bowl officials …
The University of Iowa fight song has some rousing horns, gets the alumni on their feet and chanting, and is a perfectly acceptable—even good—fight song. But how much would you like it if you were forced to listen to it 500 times in a row, every single night, for the past six months?
The Stanford Marching Band—a performatively quirky group of college musicians currently banned from road games for “sexual hazing”—is continuing its truly remarkable run of pissing everyone off. They got to go to the Rose Bowl because it was a neutral site game, and they commemorated their trip by taking a bunch of…
We love these incredible basketball plays, so here’s Michigan State’s Alvin Ellis scoring on his own basket while trying to deflect an Iowa inbound pass. It’s emblematic of the Spartans’ rough night in Iowa City; they fell to the Hawkeyes 83-70.
Iowa State fans stormed the court after the Cyclones beat in-state rival Iowa in Ames tonight, leading one beat writer to the hospital with a broken leg.
Michigan State went 82 yards on a whopping 22 plays before L.J. Scott pushed his way into the end zone for the Spartans’ first touchdown of the night, one that earned them a 16-13 win that ended Iowa’s unbeaten season.
In Gus Johnson’s defense, we’d be driven to rapture by a touchdown finally being scored in the B1G title game, too.
Lick it up, kids, because this is probably our last College GameDay sign roundup.
Iowa's Adam Woodbury poked another guy in the eye yesterday, a thing that he's been doing far too often this season. After the game, a few reporters tried to ask Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery about all the eye poking. He was not having it.
Okay, man, this is starting to get a little ridiculous.
Clear out! Clear out!
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…
