Hawk Talk

I’ve got to admit I was more than worried when the Hawkeyes took the field against the Gophers for homecoming weekend at Kinnick Stadium Saturday.
Would the offense show up or get shut down like it did against Iowa State?
How about the defense? Could they stop a team like Minnesota that came in to the game 4-0, or would they give up 32 points like they did last week?
What about the special teams? Could they cover an onside kick?
Can Mark Weisman continue to run over a Big Ten defense?
One of the things you can count on is the Hawkeyes’ leadership.
