Hawk Talk

Spring football

This is the final part of spring football for the Iowa Hawkeyes. This week I’ll talk about the scrimmage last Saturday and special teams.
The scrimmage had a new look at Kinnick with the offense and defense going heads up and keeping score.
It was a perfect day for football, not too hot, a nice breeze and enough clouds not to get sunburned.
I liked the new format that had a point system that allowed for some good competition.
They played 15-minute quarters in the first half, 12-minute quarters in the second half.
I’ll start with the offense, which won the battle, 61-37.
