UPSETS

I was going to concentrate on Iowa’s new football recruits this week but I have to give some love to the Hawkeye women’s and men’s basketball teams.
The Hawkeye women traveled to ninth-ranked Penn State and upset the Lady Lions, 73-70, last Thursday .
That’s the first time Iowa has beaten a top-10 team on the road since 1993.
The Hawks lost to Penn State 87-71 at Carver-Hawkeye Arena back on Jan. 5, and I have to admit I didn’t think Iowa had much of a chance.

New kids on the block

Hawk Talk

It’s time to take a little break from basketball and wrestling as the Hawkeye football team signed 19 players last week. They plan to add a junior college defensive end this summer.
I always enjoy checking out the new recruits, whether it’s football, basketball or wrestling… the three sports I cover.
I always wonder who will be the next Shonn Greene, the next Aaron White or the next Bethany Doolittle.
All three we not highly recruited.
It also gives me a chance to talk to Reese Morgan, who is in his second year of coaching the defensive line.
