Iowa recruits in for the Penn State game, Jarrod Uthoff finds a home and the big-play Penn State offense

Iowa football is always the main topic in Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.

Staying in the Midwest

It looks like former Iowa basketball player Jarrod Uthoff has a new home. Michael Scotto of Basketball Insiders is reporting that the Indiana Pacers signed Uthoff to a 1-year deal.

Akrum Wadley and Saquon Barkley

Iowa running back Akrum Wadley said this week isn’t about him and Saquon Barkley. But it kind of is. Land of 10 shows why if Wadley is to achieve his goals for the season, he may need to go through the Nittany Lions and Barkley.

Iowa hasn’t really used it this season. Marc Morehouse of the Cedar Rapids Gazette takes a look at why and wonders if the Penn State game from last season killed the formation the Hawkeyes leaned on in pass situations.

Going down memory lane

Nebraska fired athletic director Shawn Eichorst on Thursday. Land of 10 took a look back at Eichort’s “evaluate where Iowa was” comments from 2014.

Gameday gaffe

ESPN missed a big opportunity to bring its College Gameday show to Iowa on Saturday. Land of 10 explains why the show needs to get back to Kinnick Stadium.
