CHILD CARE

Hawk Talk

Basketball and wrestling seasons are over so it’s time for some spring football.
Kirk Ferentz had his first press conference for spring football last week and he talked about the energy the new football coaches brought to the program.
The next couple of weeks I’ll break down the offense, defense and special teams.
This week I’ll talk about the offensive line, tight ends and fullbacks.
I like to start with the O-line because for most programs, including Iowa, the line is a big reason you win or lose.

Food For Thought

I hadn’t watched television in the morning since a year ago when I had a head cold and felt too tired to do anything constructive and too bleary-eyed to read or work at the computer. It had been quite a few years since I’d had a cold and I more or less rediscovered that the absolutely worst thing about having a cold is daytime television. Since then, I’d stubbornly left the set turned off before news time at five o’clock, until that first snowy, blowy day we had last January.
