Huddle up

Iowa needed to regroup after failing to land its top quarterback targets in the 2019 class. The Hawkeyes responded with four offers in recent days. Rivals’ Tom Kakert looks at where Iowa sits at quarterback in 2019 and who are the new recruits, including an intriguing prospect in Connor Bazelak.

Getting badgered no more

The Land of 10 deep dive into the Iowa offense continued with an important topic if the Hawkeyes are to reclaim superiority in the Big Ten West. Why is Wisconsin so adept at stopping Iowa? A lot goes into it, but there is a path to future success.

It’s back

Iowa. Nebraska. Black Friday. It’s going to be a thing going forward. Land of 10 breaks down how the regular-season rivalry is on again.

Moving on

Most of the media attention about the Iowa-Iowa State Twitter incident centered around Iowa State staffer Jim Hofher. But what about the player at the center of it? Land of 10 looked into how Wisconsin 2019 defensive lineman Jake Karchinski handled a coach referring to him as “underwhelming” upon receiving an Iowa offer. It turns out, he’s doing just fine.

Kenny Iwebema played defensive end at Iowa from 2003-07. Upon graduation, he wanted to become a medical sales rep. He needed seven years to get there.’s Rob Howe caught up with Iwebema and learned what he did before getting the job he wanted and why he likes it so much.

Time for a change

Iowa softball is 172-247-1 overall and 68-133 in Big Ten play under Marla Looper. No, the numbers aren’t good. It’s why it may be time for the Hawkeyes to consider a coaching change.
