Football Preview

Friday, Aug. 5, was Hawkeye football media day, so the next three weeks I’ll be talking about the offense, the defense and special teams.
This week… the offense, including quarterback, offensive line, tight end and wide receiver.

It all starts with the quarterback. It’s not easy to replace a three-year starter like Rick Stanzi.
All Rick did was finish with a 26-9 record and become only the third quarterback in Big Ten history to win three straight bowl games.
