It’s a very special edition of the Hawkeye Report Podcast. Tom Kakert and Matt Randazzo sit down with former Hawkeye Kevin Skillett on the 25th anniversary of the passing of his teammate, Chris Street. We discuss what it was like for the Iowa basketball team and his memories of Street. Then we visit with former Hawkeye Chuck Long and discuss his new book, his charity event, and then we dive into Iowa football and his thoughts on Hawkeye signal caller Nate Stanley and his development.
A little bonus podcast this week from Tom Kakert and Matt Randazzo. We look back at Iowa’s win over Illinois on Thursday night. Is this a turning point for the Hawkeye basketball team? What changed during the game and is Fran McCaffery shortening his bench? Who could lose their spot in the rotation? We look ahead to next week for the Hawkeyes on the court as well. Then we discuss the Kirk Ferentz presser on Wednesday, dive into recruiting with a new commitment on board and talk hoops recruiting, and wrap up discussing Iowa wrestling with a big meet on Sunday against Oklahoma State.
We start the week with a new Hawkeye Report Podcast. Tom Kakert and Matt Randazzo take a deep dive into the struggling Iowa basketball team. What, if anything can be done to fix this team? We look at some of the disturbing numbers and trends so far in the Big Ten for the Hawkeyes and if there could be a win on the horizon. And we discuss Fran McCaffery being ejected on Sunday night and if his seat could get warm this year? We also look at Iowa football and breakdown the early departures of Josh Jackson and James Daniels and how they impact cornerback and offensive line in 2018, plus the transfer of Tyler Wiegers and what it means to the quarterback position.
