Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
For the second week in a row the Hawkeye offense couldn’t find the end zone, but the defense kept them in it until the end. It wasn’t enough, and the Iowa State Cyclones held on for a 9-6 win.
I don’t get it. The defense is supposed to be rebuilding and the offense has a senior quarterback, a new offensive coordinator, a solid line and an All-American tight end, but scores only one touchdown in two games!
Going into the game, Iowa was 40-0 with Kirk Ferentz as head coach when they held a team to under 10 points.
