Kirk Ferentz has been Iowa’s football coach since 1999, and the Hawkeyes have been steady, unspectacular, and occasionally very good during his tenure. During pretty much that entire tenure, Ferentz and his wife Mary have been engaged in a very silly dispute with their neighbors. Those neighbors filed a lawsuit…
We all thought we had seen this game before. A Big Ten program playing better than they had in generations, heading into Iowa City as a favorite in a night game, sees their entire team slip into neutral under the lights at Kinnick Stadium. Everything that can go wrong for the visitors does go wrong, while a scrappy…
Iowa’s dreams of upsetting Penn State came crashing down as Trace McSorley completed a 65-yard two-minute drill with a touchdown pass to Juwan Johnson on fourth down and with no time remaining on the clock.
Former University of Iowa athletics administrator Jane Meyer was awarded $1.43 million on Thursday after a jury ruled that the school had discriminated against her on the basis of her gender and sexual orientation.
Iowa senior Cory Clark was understandably pretty pumped to win a national championship last night. So much so, apparently, that he threw one of the team coaches to the ground in his celebration:
With the Hawkeyes up by 11 with three seconds to play, there was no question about who was going to win tonight’s game between Iowa and North Dakota. But North Dakota’s Corey Baldwin stole the ball and Drick Bernstine tried to beat the buzzer with a little jumper anyway*, and Iowa coach Fran McCaffery was not happy.…
Unranked Iowa’s upset win over #3 Michigan yesterday was worth celebrating. But some people took it a little too far, and University of Iowa police had to make game-day arrests for the first time since September. (The campus that gave us Vodka Samm has had plenty of game-day citations since September, just no arrests.)
On a day that saw second-ranked Clemson and fourth-ranked Washington tally their first losses of the season, Michigan decided to join in the fun by losing to Iowa as Hawkeyes kicker Keith Duncan pounded in a 33-yard field goal as time expired to give his team a 14-13 win. It’s the first time in more than 30 years that…
North Dakota State continued its incredible streak of beating teams from college football’s top division when it downed 13th-ranked Iowa 23-21 thanks to a last-second field goal.
This is Cory Brown. He is a fan of Iowa Hawkeyes football, and has Kirk Ferentz’s face tattooed on his calf.
You could read this post, and watch the full video below, or you could read this essay by our pal Spencer Hall. We recommend you do the latter, instead of watching this video of Iowa’s Josey Jewell turning the brain of Miami’s Matt Merimee into oatmeal.
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?
