Wrestlers win Midlands

Hawk Talk

The Hawkeyes had three champions, including Thomas Gilman (125 pounds) who won his third-straight Midland title.
Brandon Sorensen (149) scored a takedown and back points to win a 7-1 decision but the most exciting match was redshirt freshman Michael Kemerer at 157.
Michael, who came in ranked second, knocked off the No. 1 seed Tyler Berger of Nebraska in the finals.
The match went into two sudden victory overtimes and both wrestlers were given points in OT that were reversed.
Michael finally pulled it out with a 6-5 win.

Not again…Florida wins, 30-3

Hawk Talk

I can’t believe it… another poor showing in the final game and Iowa suffers its fifth-straight bowl loss.
Too many missed tackles, too many interceptions and too many big plays given up.
I don’t even want to talk about the game, so I’ll look into next year.
Big losses include C.J. Beathard, Desmond King, Jaleel Johnson, LeShun Daniels, Jr., and Ron Coluzzi.
C.J. finished with a career record of 21-7 (.750), the best all-time winning percentage of Iowa quarterbacks with 20 or more starts.
C.J. is one of only five players in program history to throw for more than 40 touchdowns.

Hawks scrape out Big 10 wins

Hawkeye women

The 70-65 loss at Illinois was a really frustrating game.
Iowa had more rebounds (46-28), more points in the paint (30-20) and the Hawks outshot Illinois from the free throw line 12-14 (85.7%) to 14-19 (73.7%).
