In or out?

First, Iowa quarterback target Spencer Petras said he’s sticking with Oregon State. Then, he said to Rob Howe of he’s still thinking about his decision. Which is it? Odds are Iowa is a major underdog to land the 3-star QB from Greenbrae, Calif.

Future success

Defensive ends A.J. Epenesa and John Waggoner ensure the Hawkeyes are set at the position for years to come. Matthew Bain of the Des Moines Register writes the reason the long-term outlook is so positive goes beyond those two players.

Get in line

What is the Iowa quarterback depth chart? Does it change with potential transfers at the position? Land of 10 answers in the latest question of the day (or in this case topic of the day).

How it happened

Cordell Pemsl looked down. He saw his tibia. The Iowa men’s basketball forward describes how he injured his right leg at Iowa State last week. It’s not for the faint of heart.

He’s back

Connor McCaffery has returned from mono. It’s good news for him. It’s also good news for fellow point guard Jordan Bohannon. Land of 10 explains why here.

Heck of a debut

Iowa wrestler Alex Marinelli made quite a first impression. He won his first two matches, including over Rickie Lewis, Rutgers’ No. 4 ranked 157 pounder, last weekend. As Cody Goodwin of the Des Moines Register reports it resulted in Marinelli earning Big Ten Freshman of the Week honors.
