It's time to football

8/21/2019
More
It’s time to football. It just is. That’s what we do on the On Iowa podcast. Yeah, there’s some basketball yada yada, but football is the thing and we go into the Hawkeyes today with the waders on. Iowa offensive coordinator Brian Ferentz didn’t hint, he flat-out said in his Tuesday news conference that there’s really nothing worse than “talking season.” You know, that time of year where you make an outlandish prediction for your team and then realize two weeks later that you might’ve bitten...

Iowa football media day is here

8/8/2019
More
The On Iowa Podcast decided to get a jump on media day. Why not? We went long off the top with a discussion led by a couple of topics The Athletic’s Scott Dochterman covered this week: Five potential breakout players and some statistics that will show up and matter for the 2019 Hawkeyes. The players discussion spiraled into mostly the “underappreciated player” category. But, yeah, it’s going to be fun to see what defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon can do and what Tyler Linderbaum can be at...

Back from Big Ten Media Days

7/25/2019
More
Big Ten media days have value. Absolutely, they do. It’d have more value if the league edited its invite list. Last week was too much. This event has gone from two-hour sitdowns at a table with players and coaches scheduled for different times. So, when Kirk Ferentz was talking, Bob Sanders was waiting to talk. You could swing from one Iowa convo to another without missing anything. It’s not like that anymore. There is podium time with players and coaches. They are generally around the same...

Recruiting update, conference realignment and more

7/1/2019
More
With Big Ten media days coming up, football is basically here. Scott Dochterman and I wanted to get a podcast in before the B1G media days (July 17-18) and the end of the portions of our waking lives that don’t involve football. We hit recruiting. Iowa’s 2020 class now at 20 prospects. There could be more. One thing that impresses me? The geography of this class is national-ish. Texas, Florida, all over the upper midwest and, of course, Iowa. The only place missing that would make this a...

Oliver Martin, kickoff times, B1G West favorites and more

6/13/2019
More
Here’s a little 2-hour podcast to break the ice of the horse latitudes, you know, that part of the summer where there’s not a whole lot going on in football. There was a little going on in Iowa football last week. Lots of kickoff times trickled out. Marc Morehouse and Scott Dochterman talk about the times and the teams. We’ve been doing various posts on Iowa’s 2019 schedule, so we brought that to the podcast. We ranked the Big Ten West as far as favorites. We talk Iowa wide receiver. The...

Iowa football, basketball talk to take you into summer

5/23/2019
More
One last two-hour podcast to send you into the summer. The #oniowapod will be taking a break for summer vacations. Marc is off to Wisconsin. Scott will be enjoying greater Canada. So, we sort of went a little crazy. All over the board. We even lifted the moratorium on talk about Iowa’s next head football coach. There will be one. Someday. Isaiah Moss came up. Iowa basketball has woe now, you guys. Maybe lots of woe. We talked extensively about the Big Ten West. Yes, Iowa has a roster that...

Wrapping up spring football

4/29/2019
More
It was a fun spring. We talked with each Iowa assistant coach. We had excellent convos and football discussion (real football discussion, it feels so good). And we saw a glimpse of the team last Friday night. In that regard, it’s been a great spring. I’d characterize the Hawkeyes’ spring as positive. There was just one ACL injury and it was a non-two-deeper at linebacker (Colten Dinsdale). The next wave of early NFL entries got in good work … against each other. DE A.J. Epenesa vs. OT Alaric...

NFL Draft preview, Takeaways from Brian Ferentz and Phil Parker

4/25/2019
More
It is draft night. We came into this with a plan, so hear us out. We know #oniowapod will be available for just a few hours before Thursday night’s NFL Draft. So, we talk draft on the front end of the podcast, knowing how different it might turn out. Also, this podcast would’ve only had a shelf life of two hours if it was just the draft. So, a little draft stuff. We make calls on Iowa’s four combine guys. Scott believes OL Ross Reynolds could be picked, too. I agree. What else did we talk...

Spring football: Slot receivers, defensive backs and your questions

4/18/2019
More
We stuck some Game of Thrones in this, but the #oniowapod sticks to the subject, which is, you know, Iowa sports. This one is heavy, heavy football, and with a week left in spring practice, why wouldn’t it be? We talked the race at the slot receiver position between Nico Ragaini and Tyrone Tracy. Defensive backs came up a lot. We’re all going to have to get to know Kaevon Merriweather a little better. Whither Ihmir Smith-Marsette? We were asked in #oniowapod questions about running backs....

Spring football: Where Iowa's running game stands

4/11/2019
More
This was Iowa running game week. Offensive line coach Tim Polasek and running backs coach Derrick Foster spoke with the media this week. They were honest about where their position groups sit. The offensive line is mostly settled, but it’s also hungry to hit the standards that Iowa has built in the running game. There’s work to do, even if Tristan Wirfs and Alaric Jackson are automatic at tackle (and, no, Polasek would never say that, it’ll never be good enough). Running backs are in a...

4-2-5 defense is a thing for Iowa

4/4/2019
More
Impromptu #oniowapod. Scott and I were going to cover a meeting at Iowa today, but the early morning practice was more than enough Iowa City driving for me and here we are with a podcast. I didn’t think you’d mind. At the top, we ask how much 4-2-5, X-and-O football talk do you want? We could do that all damn day, but we also want to have listeners. That stuff isn’t for everybody. We’ll always do some, but let us know if your eyes are rolling back in your heads. Football had events since our...

Opening Day, spring football edition

3/28/2019
More
Yes, today is the opener … for spring football. C’mon, what did you think the #oniowapod was going to say? Scott and I nerded out on Kirk Ferentz’s Tuesday news conference. We talked 4-2-5 defense, slot receiver and, of course, defensive tackle Daviyon Nixon’s unveiling. I have to say, it felt really good. I know it’s baseball’s opening day. We’ll check that out later with a Hamm’s. We talked Iowa spring, the NFL draft and a lot of hoops. Iowa men's basketball woke up in the NCAA Tournament....

We need to talk about Iowa men's basketball

3/20/2019
More
Let’s not kid ourselves, the #oniowapod knows who and what it is. You guys know the #oniowapod is a football school. But we need to talk about basketball. It’s that time of year and there is a considerable amount of angst hanging over the Iowa men's basketball team. Fair or not, there just is. The late-season collapses, Iowa is in the midst of one now. You’re tired of these. Iowa is tired of them. Fran McCaffery has got to be. You know Gary Barta is. Say what you want, everyone wants to win...

Can Iowa men's basketball change the narrative?

3/14/2019
More
It’s March in eastern Iowa. Cue the tournament doldrums. Or not. The bottom line with Iowa basketball right now is it’s not over. You can’t totally assess the season until it’s over. You certainly can start forming your opinions, and, holy moly, recency might seep into that opinion. And recency brings us – all of us, coaches, players, fans and media – to the conclusion that it’s March in eastern Iowa and cue the tournament doldrums. The ball is literally in Iowa’s court to change this...

A lot to cover this week. Marc and Scott talk The Athletic's 2019 College Football Coaches ranking, Iowa loses a legend in Reese Morgan, NFL Combine for Iowa, and your Twitter questions

Hawkeyes at the Combine

There are a number of Iowa Hawkeye hopefuls heading into the 2019 NFL Draft season. Marc and Scott breakdown what they expect to see at the NFL Combine, and which Hawkeye has a chance to be a draft surprise.

Hot takes on Iowa basketball, football for the polar vortex

1/31/2019
More
When it’s cold outside, you need some hot takes in your ears. That’s where the #oniowapod comes in. This was back and forth with football and basketball. Iowa men's basketball has hovered from acceptable to good to pretty good for most of the season. The schedule is putting on the squeeze, but it doesn’t matter. Time for Iowa basketball to start kicking ass and taking names. Can it? Let’s see. We’re setting the bar at the NCAA Tournament. This team should be able to get there from here. It’d...

What NFL early entries mean for Iowa in 2019

1/10/2019
More
NFL early departures is the open for today’s #oniowapod. The Hawkeyes are one Mackey Award-winning TE from losing four players to early entries in the NFL draft. Before the Outback Bowl, TE Noah Fant said goodbye. Post-Outback, safety Amani Hooker and defensive end Anthony Nelson have announced their decisions to turn pro. TE T.J. Hockenson will be next. What are the implications for Iowa 2019? Obviously, no definitive answers yet, but it’s OK to talk about it. It was OK to talk about a lot...

Outback Bowl recap and a look at 2019

1/3/2019
More
Iowa won its bowl game. It was a square football with the minus-15 rushing yards, but it was a win and that is why you play the games. We talk Outback Bowl. A lot of ins and outs and what have you with that. (Kidding, it was a complicated case that I’m sure you will learn to love as the great gulf of the offseason flows.) We dip our toes into 2019. We do talk, because it’s our podcast and we can do whatever we want, about possible departures, both players and coaches. Prepare for Iowa to...

Thoughts on Iowa's early signing period

12/20/2018
More
We went with a “star,” “sleeper” and “future first rounder” with our discussion on Iowa’s 2019 recruiting class on this edition of the On Iowa Podcast. You see, it was all very scientific. Kidding. We talked the heck out of Iowa football signing day. Tyler Linderbaum’s move from defensive tackle to center certainly got our attention. Linderbaum could be on track to be a four-year starter. That move makes a lot of sense. We talk about OL Ezra Miller being called for basically excessive...
