Dienhart: Mark Weisman latest AIRBHG victim

Looks like the Iowa running back hex continues. Sophomore sensation Mark Weisman didn’t appear on the depth chart released today by the school. He apparently hurt his right ankle in the Hawkeyes’ 19-16 double-overtime win at Michigan State last week after running 26 times for 116 yards. True freshman Greg Garmon and Jordan Canzeri are listed 1-2 for Iowa’s game vs. Penn State at home this Saturday. Garmon has dealt with an arm injury, while Canzeri hurt a knee in spring drills.

Swing at an AIRBHG pinata, support a good cause

Tired of the running back curse at Iowa? You know, the whole Angry-Iowa-Running-Back-Hating-God thing, affectionately known as AIRBHG? If you weren’t prior to last week, you are now. Mark Weisman, the popular and highly successful walk-on running back, injured his right ankle last week and is not listed on the depth chart for Saturday’s home game vs. Penn State. [RELATED: Tom Dienhart on Weisman injury, Iowa backfield] There’s a way for Iowa fans to release their frustration stemming from the recurring backfield issues, and support a good cause in the process. So, at noon ET Saturday, head on over to

Big Ten Links: What's ahead for contenders?

My first Big Ten Links of the weeks takes a look at how Wisconsin reloads on the offensive line. Losing star left tackle Ricky Wagner with a knee injury at Purdue hurts, but the Badgers front didn’t skip a beat with left guard Ryan Groy slipping into the spot. The result: Wisconsin ran for almost 500 yards on the Boilermakers. Groy has played every spot on the line, so moving around isn’t an issue. And, until further notice, he will remain at the key left tackle slot for the visit from Minnesota this Saturday for a Badger team that is

Power Rankings: Badgers, Ball making moves

Montee Ball and the Wisconsin offense sure look like they are back. While still not nearly as explosive as last season’s unit, the offense has found its footing. After all, it went for 645 yards of offense in its 38-14 win at Purdue. But where do the Badgers land on  my Week 8 Power Rankings? Find out in this post. 1. Ohio State (7-0, 3-0). The Buckeyes marched to 7-0 with a less-than-vintage 52-49 win at Indiana. And, there doesn’t appear to be any end in sight to the losing. But that defense? Well, I’m a bit concerned. Still, this


How did we do? Week 7 picks revisited

Before we turn our attention to Week 8, we need to review how fans, Tom Dienhart and yours truly did with our Week 7 predictions. Dienhart led the way, at 4-1, good enough to move him into sole possession of first place in the season standings. fans and myself both went 3-2. SEASON RECORDS Tom: 48-14; .774 fans: 47-15; .758 Brent: 45-17; .726 Iowa 19, Michigan State 16 (2 OT) Tom’s pick: Michigan State, 21-20 – The Spartans will win this slugfest in the fourth quarter and will see their defense score a touchdown—or at least set

Tom's Top 10: Who's it going to be in the Legends?

Another week of Big Ten football in the books, another chance to offer some thoughts from around the conference. See my 10 observations—some whimsical, some fact based, some opinionated—from Week 7. 1. Yes, Ohio State is 7-0 and the offense is playing great. But I remain concerned about the defense. On Saturday, the Buckeyes yielded 49 points to Indiana after allowing 38 last week to Nebraska. IU also had 481 yards of offense with 352 coming through the air. Ohio State ranks No. 10 in the Big Ten in total defense (400.0 ypg) and No. 8 in scoring defense (24.6

Iowa rallies, outlasts Michigan State in 2 OT

Mark Weisman ran for 116 yards and a tying touchdown in the final minute of regulation, and Iowa went on to beat Michigan State 19-16 in double overtime Saturday. Mike Meyer kicked field goals in both overtimes, including a 42-yarder in the second that gave the Hawkeyes (4-2, 2-0 Big Ten) their first lead of the game. Iowa then won it when Andrew Maxwell‘s deflected pass was intercepted by Greg Castillo. Le’Veon Bell ran for 140 yards and a touchdown for Michigan State, but the Spartans (4-3, 1-2) couldn’t hold on late. Iowa drove 68 yards in nine plays and

3rd quarter recap: Michigan State 10, Iowa 3

There were more punts than points in the third quarter and the margin is still seven, as Michigan State leads 10-3. There were five punts in the quarter as neither team could find a way to move the ball. Le’Veon Bell clinched a 100-yard rushing game with 33 in the quarter, part of his 101-yard day through three quarters for the Spartans. Iowa will start the fourth quarter with good field position on Michigan State’s 13-yard line.
