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.
Breaking down Penn State
The Penn State offense isn’t just looking for big plays. It’s dependent on them. Tom Kakert and Nate Bauer of Rivals.com break down the Nittany Lions here.
More than 40 recruits are expected in town for the Iowa-Penn State game. It’s a mix of commits, high priority targets, Class of 2018 players and Class of 2019 prospects. Rob Howe of HawkeyeNation.com breaks it all down.
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.
What’s up with the Raider package?
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
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.
Does facing Penn State help Iowa in the polls? Which former Iowa opponent makes you wince just by seeing their name? Those questions, and more, are answered in the Land of 10 Iowa mailbag.
