Hawkeye men look for scoring

By Don Lund
Sports Writer

Black Friday was tripleheader for the Iowa Hawkeye football and basketball teams.
Football was first at 2:30 p.m. against Nebraska; at 6 p.m. the men’s basketball team played Virginia and then at 8 p.m. the women played James Madison.

Hawkeye women

The Iowa women started things out Thanksgiving day with a 78-65 loss to ninth-ranked UCLA.
The Hawks came out strong and led early but when Megan Gustafson got her second foul late in the first quarter, the Hawkeyes lost the lead for good.

How sweet it is

Hawk Talk

Iowa defeats Nebraska, 40-10

The Hawkeye football team played its best overall game of the season on Black Friday as it came up with big plays on offense, had a shutdown defense and special teams were almost perfect.
Can you believe it was 1981 the last time the Hawks beat the Cornhuskers in Iowa City?
How about this: the 40-10 win ties the largest margin of victory over Nebraska since 1899 (30-0)!
I was at the 1981 win which was also Kirk Ferentz’s first game as a Hawkeye line coach.

Chicken wishing

Walkin'

A couple of surprises came out of the old hen house recently.
The coop isn’t old at all, but it’s been a few seasons since the girls were spring chickens. Nevertheless, they shouldn’t be over the hill, egg-laying wise. Typically, a hen produces from five to seven years. We have six chickens, average age three-and-a-half, so we should still be making omelets and deviled eggs to our heart’s content.
Wrong.
Creation tapered off this spring and then stopped all together with the beginning of summer. It was a bit of a mystery since production typically goes up in the summer months.
