Per the Hawkeye football Twitter account, the game is available on BTN 2 GO, and will also be aired Sunday evening on the Big 10 Network. For those of you that are attending it today and/or watching on BTN 2 GO, feel free to post your thoughts/updates in this thread.
It airs on BTN Sunday evening at 8 EST/7 CT.
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Really excited for the spring game. Unfortunately, I can't be there but will be watching on btn2go.com.
I am watching the Nebraska-Michigan Women's Softball game on BT2Go. No sign of the Spring game at Iowa?? They mention Minnesota, but nothing for Iowa. What the hell is going on??????
Due to technical difficulties they weren't able to stream the game. Still plan to have it air tomorrow night on BTN though. Horse#$#@ if you ask me.
Answered my own question.
"Technical issues cancel live Iowa web stream
Due to unfortunate technical issues, BTN2Go can’t stream the Iowa spring football game live. We apologize for this last-minute change of plans. However, the entire Iowa game will air as originally scheduled on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET on BTN TV. "
Bummer. Hopefully someone who is there can provide some updates.
Stats and info from Marc Morehouse of the CR Gazette.
-- I think this is a two-QB race and I think Jake Rudock has an edge on Cody Sokol. Rudock makes sound decisions and sees the field just a little
"Damon Bullock said the offense will operate exclusively out of a no-huddle next season. Kirk Ferentz said it won't. I know who I believe."
-Pat Harty of the IC Press Citizen
Who do you believe?
After reading about the game more, I really like what I'm hearing about Iowa's CBs. It sounds like Lowery is going to be the next star. Beyond that, it sounds like Lomax and Draper will battle for the #2 spot now that Campbell and Buford are gone. One thing that is interesting is that Morehouse noted Gair, not Fleming, was playing dime back.
I think we have reason for excitement,(for at least improvement this year) and bigger things to come. We HAVE to have a decent year and keep recruiting rolling if we do I think we can be back to contenders in the B1G in a few years. I also am a big Ryan Ward fan and it is nice hearing good things about him, it also seems Big Carl may be no joke this year, and I have been waiting for that since the day he signed. Also nice to see Wilson "come out of nowhere" he is a great kid I am glad he had a big day.
Yeah, Big Carl is finally blowing up. Hopefully, he'll keep it up vs real opponents.
Wilson broke out too... but still don't like seeing too many darn short passes.
No shortage of TEs. yikes.
OL- top 7 will be just fine.
And nice to see Canzeri added some bulk but still shifty.
And KF is intrigued with Malloy (see the attached article- more analyses from Morehouse). He's 215 now. I think he was only 185 in HS.
The three candidates put up similar numbers in Iowa's scrimmage

I'm interested to see how Gair's career progresses. I thought he and Faith Ekakitie were the most raw signees in Iowa's 2012 class, with both having a lot of upside. Coming out of high school, I liked Gair's explosiveness and range, but thought he had a lot of developing to do before he'd be able to withstand the physicality of the B1G. If he develops into a solid rotation guy as a redshirt freshman, that's a great testament to Doyle and the strength staff.
Quick note on Wilson, I remember his high school coach comparing him to Hines Ward. Not necessarily in talent level, because he wasn't trying to put pressure on Cam, but in terms of being the type of receiver that always finds a way to make a big play when his team needs it most. If he can make a habit out of that at the college level, he'll be a valuable asset to Iowa's passing game over the next few years.
