A very special edition of the Hawkeye Report podcast this week as we have three members of the 2008 Iowa football team join us to do our version of an oral history of the Hawkeyes upset win over Penn State that year. Joining Matt Randazzo and Tom Kakert are Pat Angerer, Julian Vandervelde, and Joe Conklin to look back at that very special win for the Hawkeyes. Then we dive into this weeks game against Penn State and look at some hoops recruiting news.
This week on the Hawkeye Report Podcast, Tom Kakert and Matt Randazzo are joined by former Hawk Joe Conklin as we look back on Iowa’s thrilling win over Iowa State this past weekend. We look at the strong performance of Nate Stanley, the emergence of Ihmir Smith-Marsette, and the amazing play of Akrum Wadley. We also dive deeper in Wadley and where he ranks among running backs of the Ferentz era. Plus we look at the struggles of the Iowa defense, particularly in the secondary, and what needs to improve against North Texas this weekend.
It’s Cy-Hawk week and who better to bring on the podcast than our old friend and former Hawkeye Julian Vandervelde. Tom Kakert, Matt Randazzo, and Julian look back at Iowa’s opening win over Wyoming and what they liked and are concerned about from the game. Then we break down Saturday’s game against Iowa State and why Julian hates the Cyclones. We talk a little recruiting in the creepy corner and then head to the nerdy nook to talk Star Wars and comic book movies.
