Hawk Talk

What a difference a week makes.
Last week, you would have thought the sky was falling and dogs and cats were living together… why? Because the Hawkeyes lost to Minnesota 22-21 when they were favored by 15.
Former Iowa quaerterback Jim Hartlieb once said that losing hurts more than winning feels good… unless you beat Michigan 24-16 on a last-second, goal line stand.
The Hawkeyes first played Michigan in 1900, winning 28-5. They have played the Wolverines 57 times and have never beaten them three years in a row… until last Saturday.
