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.

Watch Iowa Coach Fran McCaffery Get Ejected After Bumping An Official

Iowa head coach Fran McCaffery chose a bad time to get ejected from the Hawkeyes' bout against fourth-ranked Wisconsin in Madison: as they held onto a two-point lead over the undefeated Badgers halfway through the second half.

A Three-Man Front Is A Late-Game Defensive Formation For Suckers

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.

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…

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 1:25pm 11/21/12 1:25pm
