Hawk Talk

By Don Lund
Sports Writer
I think it’s about time to talk some football.
After one of the hottest summers I can remember, I’m really looking forward to the cool October Saturday afternoons at Kinnick.
Media day is Monday, Aug. 6, so the next five weeks I’ll break down the schedule, talk about the offense, defense and special teams.
First off, the schedule, and Iowa has a good one.
The first game is away but the next four are at home and then comes a bye.
If the young Hawkeyes can grow up fast it could be a fun year.
