Hawkeye women so close

Hawk Talk

The Iowa women lost their first game last week, with 11th-ranked Florida State knocking off the Hawks, 94-93.
When I go to a men’s or women’s basketball game, I like to go a little early to watch them warm up. When I went to the women’s game last week, I was impressed with how good the Hawkeyes’ shooters were.
The team was shooting lights out in warm-ups making eight in a row, then 10 in a row and then seven straight.
I know that doesn’t always show up in a game, but it sure did last Wednesday.
The Hawks were 14-15 in the first quarter and made 15 straight going into the second quarter.

Iowa also had a 20-12 advantage on points in the paint, shot 51 percent from the floor and 50 percent from behind the arc.

There is no money in poetry...

Food For Thought

So wrote poet Robert Graves, but then he went on to say there is no poetry in money, either. Only the most naive, inexperienced poet expects to make his fortune through his published verses. About all that can be hoped for is a little prize money gleaned through contests, or perhaps a small check from Reader’s Digest for a particularly clever snippet of rhyming wit. Other than that, most poetry is published at the poet’s own expense and purchased mainly by the poet’s friends and relatives.
