Replacing Mehaffey Bridge over the Iowa River between Solon and North Liberty is a four-stage project that began last spring, with an anticipated completion date of November 2014.

The defense

This week I’ll look at the defense.

The Hawkeye defense should be a strong point this fall, especially the defensive line, which has all four starters back.
The big question will be replacing the three starting linebackers, James Morris, Anthony Hitchens and Christian Kirksey.
Anthony and Christian have a shot to start for the Dallas Cowboys and Cleveland Browns respectively.
Quinton Alston (6-1, 232) played as a true freshman, saw action in all 13 games last year and was Academic All-Big Ten as a junior.
