2014 Hawkeye Football Schedule

Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
When the football spring game is over in April, I have the month of May off for covering live Hawkeye sports.
June is the start of Prime Time and Game Time which goes through July.
Last week was the end of basketball coverage for the summer which means one thing... it’s time to talk football.
From now until October, it’s all football on Hawk Talk.
The next two weeks I’ll break down Iowa’s schedule and try to predict if the Hawks will be favored or not.
I really like the way the conference split.
