BTN Tour: Iowa Football Preview

BTN Tour: Iowa Football Preview

Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith caught up with Iowa head coach Kirk Ferentz during our BTN Football Tour in August. The Hawkeyes went 8-5 last season, a disappointing campaign that opened with national championship aspirations. Expectations aren’t as high this season in Iowa City, and that’s usually a good thing. When Iowa isn’t expected to do much, that’s when it flies under the radar and seems to have some of its best seasons. The Hawkeyes open the season Sept. 3 against Tennessee Tech. Watch all of our Iowa Preview Show video inside.

Ricky Stanzi is out, and James Vandenberg is in. The Hawkeyes will turn to Vandenberg, the guy who nearly led Iowa past Ohio State at Ohio Stadium two seasons ago, to take over the offense. Is he up to the challenge? Find out below.

Adrian Clayborn, Tyler Sash and Brett Greenwood, among others, are gone, so that leaves Shaun Prater in a new role this fall. Find out how Prater is adjusting below.

Which Hawkeyes do Coach and Howard think Big Ten fans should look out for in 2011? Find out below.
