Finals are over. Memorial Day weekend is in the rear view mirror. For college football players, now is a great time to hit the pavement and weight room. Full-fledged full-on practices are down the road as is the 2015 football season.

Remember this video from two years ago, Hawk fans? Nothing replaces hard work away from the gridiron.


On September 5 Illinois State comes to Kinnick. On October 3, the Hawks begin Big 10 play at Wisconsin.

This is a nice synopsis from SB Nation of what is to come for Iowa this season. 2009 is indeed further and further into the rear view, but the most promising talent we have will hopefully make a difference this season. Prep starts now away from the spotlight and under the hot Iowa sunshine.
