Hawk Talk

After losing to Purdue on a last second field goal, 27-24, it’s going to be a long shot that the Hawkeyes will be going to a bowl this year.
Their last two games are at Michigan and home against Nebraska... they will be big-time underdogs against both.
I’m going to do something that I have not done in my 11 years of covering the Hawks.
I’m going to second-guess the coaches. I’ve done that many times before but not in the paper.
