Hello C.J.

Hawk Talk

Some of my homeboys from the Lodge have been telling me C.J. Beathard should be the starting quarterback for the Hawkeyes.
I like C.J., but when your starting quarterback, Jake Rudock, is completing 67 percent of his passes, has five touchdown passes and two interceptions it’s hard to pull the switch.
Jake injured his leg before halftime of Saturday’s game against Pittsburgh with Iowa trailing 17-7.
C.J. played the whole second half and Iowa came back for a wonderful 24-20 win over Pittsburgh.
What if C.J. doesn’t get hurt? Does he still go in?
