The President David Palmer
Rarely any Hawks stood out. The President reverted back to his old human form, scoring only one point in 14 minutes. 6'5 Matt Gatens, arguably Iowa's best player as a freshman, was so desperate in trying to box out a rangy 6'8 Roe, he turned around and started pushing Roe like Gatens was an offensive lineman.

In the upcoming months, I will be blogging about everything that has anything to do with the Iowa Hawkeyes' football and basketball teams. Maybe even the dominant wrestling team if I comprehend what they're actually doing and how they're keeping score. Among the topics I'll be covering in the future: the emergence of Mr. David Palmer, Ed Podolak's retirement (firing), the NFL Combine/Draft (Mitch King=Chris Hovan????), the wrestling teams eventual national title, Colonel Angle and Mini-Lick, the hell of a semester Anthony Tucker had, National Signing Day, Pat Angerer for Heisman, next year's 2-deeps, figuring out what the tournament below the NIT is called and if the Hawks will make it, and much more. Hopefully that's just scratching the surface. If there's anything that's going on in Hawkeye world, you can find it here.
A little about myself. The author per se. I'm a 20-year-old Junior at the University of Iowa double majoring in Journalism and Business Management. I'm nuts about the Hawks, as you can see. I have no idea what I want to do with the rest of my life. None. But I'm not too worried about it. I'm from a town with less people than most of my lectures. Seriously, I graduated with 24 other kids to give you an idea. I played football, basketball and baseball in high school. I loved everything about it. And I basically needed to play so the school had enough people to field a team. I have zero professional writing experience. The only people that have read anything I've written are teachers and other instructors. So whoever is reading this blog will have to bear with me as I figured it all out; enjoy the ride. Essentially, I love sports and the Hawks, so what better way to combine my two passions.
Again, welcome to Hawkeye House. Make yourself at home.
