February 4th

Wrestlers lose a close one, 19-17

Hawk Talk

Before the meet started, Iowa would be favored in five matches, Michigan in four with one a tossup.
That was before Michael Kemerer (157 pounds) was ruled out with an injury.
Spencer Lee (125) did his thing by crushing Drew Mattin, 15-0, to get a technical fall.
Spencer is so dominant on top that he can tilt most opponents on their back for a five count.
He did that three times.
“How about that Spencer Lee,” said head coach Tom Brands. “Bonus points were at a premium. We needed to be sharp, a lot sharper at 10 weights than we were but bonus points kept us in there.”

Women upset Ohio State

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
Two days after the men broke their two-game losing streak, the Hawkeye women snapped their three-game losing streak with a 103-89 win at Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
I’ve got to admit I wasn’t too confident going into the game with the Hawks struggling with their outside shooting and the Buckeyes, ranked 12th in the nation, with one of the best players in college basketball.
Plus, Iowa hadn’t beaten Ohio State since Feb. 5, 2015.
What a difference it is when the Hawks are hitting their outside shots.

As I’m writing this, I have the movie “Geostorm” playing on the television next to me.

Women share the blame

Food For Thought

As I’ve been following the accusations against powerful men over the past few months, a couple things have come clear to me regarding so-called sexual abuse. I’m no psychologist, but I’ve been observing the human race, and the behavior of the male of the species in particular, for most of my 83.8 years, and I’ve noticed there are two kinds of “abusers” in general. There are the losers who are abusive in order to gain control of women; these men seem to feel inadequate and use their superior strength, loud voices, and the threat of forced physical intimacy as weapons to stay in control.
