Iowa Women's Soccer Plays for B1G Title Tomorrow 'Live' on BTN (Nov 10)


I know many of you are soccer fans, and since I didn't see a headline story about our women's soccer team on our BHGP site (what with all the distraction from our win over OMHR), I'm posting this story. Iowa Women's Soccer is playing for the B1G title tomorrow (Sunday, the 10th), and it will be broadcast Live. Coach Rainey has down an outstanding job pulling the program out of irrelevancy and into a contender.

Tim Brewster is "back on the grass"

Article About Family That Owns/Drives the Hawkeye Hauler

The downward spiral continues for Forcier.

Men's Track and Field Win's Big 10 Championship


I am very pleased to be the first to post that the Iowa men's Track and Field team accomplished what I would have considered unfathomable a few years back. They won the Big 10 Outdoor championship for the first time in 44 years. A lot of thanks go to Asst. Coach Joey Woody who has done an excellent job developing sprinters and middle distance runners. I'm a big fan of Track/Field (having grown up in Oregon), and am very proud to see the Hawks finally get it together. For anyone living in the Des Moines area, consider going to the NCAA Championships there this year.

An Interview with the "Rogue Scout" -- NFL Drafts of this year and past


I don't spend much time reading NFL draft reports, but in a desperate attempt to find something more interesting than the meeting I'm sitting through, I read this one. The guy 'tells it like it is' -- doesn't like Gabbert; mentions really liking Merton Hanks when few others did, and is anti-"measurables".

A New Cool Mascot: Timber Joey


Check out Timber Joey, the chainsaw wielding mascot of Portland, Oregon's MLS team. I give the Timbers praise for being a bit daring, and not adding yet another brightly colored ball of foam mascot to the menagerie that wanders most sidelines nowadays. My favorite mascot is the Mountaineer of my wife's alma mater, West Virginia. In our age of political-correctness, it's a nice change of pace to see someone raise a long-rifle and fire it after a touchdown.

Cully Payne to Loyola of Chicago


Sorry if this is old news, but it's the first announcement I've seen of Payne's future home. I noted that he called it his "first perfect", as opposed to just "perfect" place. He'll certainly be a great addition to the program there. (Trivia tidbit) The program isn't particularly strong nowadays, but it accomplished something 48 years ago that has eluded Iowa -- an NCAA Championship.

Nothing But Beer for Lent


Because "beer" is frequently referenced among the BHGP faithful, I thought some of you might enjoy reading about this Iowan's 'throw-back' Lenten commitment.

UConn Gave Away 300 Tickets in Houston Just to Fill Out Their 800 Allotted Seats

Drake to Play First Ever American Football Game in Africa


With stories about our beloved game of football beginning to run thin, I thought this story regarding our cross-state neighbors would be interesting to some of you. In addition to the game being played in Tanzania, there are many good community service and learning activities as well. It speaks well of Drake, with a football program that must operate on a shoe-string budget, that they are able to pull this together.

Q&A with Montell Marion


This article is from today's (Feb 9) Daily Iowan.

Kouandjio to 'Bama


Well, it's finally settled, and this makes a lot more sense (not good, mind you) than signing with Auburn.

Drew Tate Update


I got curious about Drew Tate so checked on his status with the Calgary Stampeders. He is still 2nd String (to a longtime veteran. Halfway through the season he is 7 of 8 with 3 TDs. An additional note of interest is that Daryll Clark was recently signed and is 3rd String.

Tim Dwight at the Millrose Games (Super 60)
