Tom's Take: No shame in Iowa falling to LSU

Yes, Iowa lost, 21-14. But it’s no shame in falling to an uber-talented LSU team, which took the opening kickoff and went 79 yards on 12 plays—all runs—in taking a 7-0 lead en route to a 14-0 halftime edge. That set the tone in a game that was more lopsided than the final score indicated. The defeat ends a three-game Hawkeyes’ winning streak in what was a tremendous bounce back season for Kirk Ferentz’s crew that went from 4-8 in 2012 to 8-5 this season.

Dienhart: New Year's Day is Judgment Day for Big Ten

So, the postseason hasn’t gotten off to a stellar start for the Big Ten. The league is 0-2, as Minnesota lost to Syracuse in the Texas Bowl and Michigan got drubbed by Kansas State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. But all is not lost. The Big Ten has five bowls left, offering plenty of opportunity for redemption and image rehabilitation. Tomorrow, the Big Ten plays four bowls games. (Ohio State will play Clemson in the Orange Bowl on Friday.) The big one is the Rose Bowl, where Michigan State will take on Stanford in the 100th “Granddaddy of them

BTN LiveBIG: Chad Greenway helping families

Minnesota Vikings linebacker Chad Greenway knows about playing thru pain. The former Iowa Hawkeye has been playing with a fractured wrist during the 2013 NFL season, but he has remained the heartbeat of the Vikings’ defense. Through the “Chad Greenway’s Lead the Way Foundation,” Greenway is working to help individuals and families that are dealing with pain off the field. In October, Greenway recruited 16 Vikings teammates to take part in his third annual “Celebrity Waiter Night” at a steakhouse in Minneapolis. NFL players in aprons raised almost $200,000 in one night, all of which will help the foundation’s work

Season Review: Iowa bounces back in 2013

This was a season of redemption for Iowa and coach Kirk Ferentz. Coming off a 4-8 record in 2012 that featured a moribund offense and no bowl for the first time since 2007, some fans were restless. Had Ferentz lost his touch? Would the Hawkeyes miss a bowl for a second season in a row for the first time since a three-season dry spell from 1998-2000? Ferentz quelled skeptics, flipping Iowa’s record and punching a ticket to a New Year’s Day bowl. After 15 years on the job, Ferentz still has it for what remains one of the Big Ten’s
