    Here are the special teams stats. Not too much to talk about. Chaney, Jr had a punt return for a TD. He also had a 74 yard kick-off return and DIDN'T score. Murray was fairly dependable on his FGs and dang near automatic on the PATs. Donahue was a weapon for us punting the ball. Special teams will need to be completely re-worked heading into 2011.

    Thanks to everyone that is following along.

    Recruiting Class #1

    Following the 12-1 Rose Bowl season of 2010, Iowa was able to nab a recruiting class of 18 players. Headlined by five 4-star recruits, the class was ranked as the 30th best in the country. I certainly could've recruited a much larger haul of top-end talent, but I wanted to try and keep things fairly realistic in terms of what/how Iowa recruits. They simply don't have highly rated classes that jump off of the paper at you. All of the recruits also come from regions where Iowa currently focuses their recruiting. Here is a snapshot of the class:

    2011 Offense

    QUARTERBACK
    James Vandenberg, JR; Jay Boyd, FR; AJ Derby, rFR
    Vandenberg (88OVR) takes over for departed senior Ricky Stanzi. In 2010, the junior from Keokuk, IA completed 25 of 47 passes for 437 yards, 2TDs and an INT. 4* true freshman Jay Boyd (85OVR) locked up the #2 spot in camp leaving AJ Derby (76OVR) in a state of flux. As it sits now, barring injury, Derby will most likely never be THE guy at QB for the Hawks. At 6'4, 225 the Iowa City native might have potential at another spot before his career is over, but for now he will be QB3 in 2011.

    RUNNING BACK
    Jewel Hampton, JR; Brandon Wegher, JR; Marcus Coker, rFR
    Adam Robinson, JR (FB); Brandon Jacobs, FR
    Just like he did in 2010, Hampton (95OVR) emerges from fall camp as HB1 with fellow junior Brandon Wegher (91OVR) nipping at his heels. Hampton was hurt in Week 2 last year and didn't make it back on the field until the Rose Bowl. Wegher made the most of the opportunity, rushing for 1300 yards and earning First Team All-B1G honors. It will be interesting to see how carries are shared entering 2011. Redshirt frosh Marcus Coker (80OVR) is penciled in as HB3. The other member of the junior running back trio, Adam Robinson (89OVR), makes the transition to Fullback in 2011 and gets the starting nod. He will be backed up by true freshman Brandon Jacobs (56OVR).

    WIDE RECEIVER
    Marvin McNutt, SR; Keenan Davis, JR; Adam Roberts, FR; Jordan Cotton, SO; Kevonte Martin-Manley, rFR; Don Shumpert, rFR
    Marvin McNutt (92OVR) emerged as a go to receiver in 2010. The senior, former QB from St. Louis, caught 75 passes for 1001 yards and 8 scores following a significant injury to Derrell Johson-Koulianos. Keenan Davis (87OVR) is the other starting wide receiver. The junior from Cedar Rapids, IA caught 14 balls for 147 yards last year. True frosh Adam Roberts (84OVR), also from Cedar Rapids, earned the #3 spot in fall camp. Cotton (80OVR), Martin-Manley (80OVR) and Shumpert (68OVR) are still young and hopefully have room to left to grow.

    TIGHT END
    Brad Herman, SR; CJ Fiedorowicz, SO; Brady Smith, FR
    Herman (89OVR) is going to be asked to replace Allen Reisner and his 22 catches for 300 yards and 7 scores. Herman's next catch as a Hawkeye will be his first. Fiedorowicz (78OVR) will be the #2 and freshman Brady Smith (59OVR) will most likely redshirt.

    OFFENSIVE LINE
    T - Riley Reiff, JR; Markus Zusevics, SR; Nolan MacMillan, SO; Brandon Scherff, rFR; Casey McMillan, JR; Matt Tobin, JR; Thomas Holley, FR
    G - Brett VanSloten, SO; Adam Gettis, SR; Andrew Donnal, rFR; Rasheed Jackson, FR; Caleb Rogers, FR
    C - James Ferentz, JR; Cameron Causey, FR
    Left to Right - Reiff (99OVR), VanSloten (88OVR), Ferentz (96OVR), Gettis (85OVR) and Zusevics (86OVR) are pretty solid. Reiff is the best tackle in college football right now. Zusevics started last year and is solid on the other side as well. Ferentz is one of the better centers out there. VanSloten and Gettis are both unproven commodities at the guard spots. O-Line should be a strong point for Iowa again in 2011.

    2011 Defense

    DEFENSIVE LINE
    DE - Broderick Binns, SR; Lebron Daniel, SR; Dominic Alvis, SO; Louis Trinca-Pasat, rFR
    DT - Mike Daniels, SR; Marcus McDaniel, JR; Carl Davis, rFR; Anthony Ferguson, rFR; Ronnie Hodges, FR
    Left to Right - Daniel (88OVR), Daniels (92OVR), McDaniel (84OVR), Binns (89OVR). Binns started at DE on the right side last year and had an impressive 42/20/6 slash line (T/TFL/S). Everybody else is going to be new. McDaniel is a juco kid who we were able to sell on the idea of immediate playing time, otherwise he was likely headed to Ohio State. He plugs in beside Daniels and the two should be able to adequately replace Christian Ballard (All-B1G) and Karl Klug from the 2010 squad. Daniel is the wild card at DE on the left side. He is tasked with replacing Adrian Clayborn (43/18/6). With the exception of Davis (82OVR) at DT, quality depth across the entire front is non-existent right now.

    LINEBACKERS
    OLB - Tyler Nielsen, SR; Christian Kirksey, SO; Tyler Calhoun, FR; Anthony Hitchens, rFR; Matt Reese, FR; Lance Tillison, SR
    MLB - James Morris, SO; Bruce Davis, SR; Jesse Robinson, FR; Shannon Nugent, FR
    Nielsen (93OVR) led the team in tackles last year as a junior (63/22/7) and returns at one of the OLB spots as a senior in 2011. He will be flanked by Kirksey (87OVR) who went 16/6/1 in a backup role last year. The highly touted Calhoun (82OVR) earns the spot behind Nielsen and will be groomed to start in 2012. Hitchens (80OVR) will back up Kirksey on the other side. Reese (76OVR) will be redshirted and Tillison will finish his degree and graduate. Morris (94OVR), 21/6/2 in 2010, will get the starting spot in the middle. The sophomore from Solon, IA started the final 3 games last season after Jeff Tarpinian was suspended. Davis (87OVR) is a very capable backup. The plan is to redshirt both of the incoming freshmen, Robinson (76OVR) and Nugent (72OVR).

    DEFENSIVE BACKS
    CB - Shaun Prater, SR; Jordan Bernstine, SR; William Lowe, SR; Micah Hyde, JR; Greg Castillo, JR; BJ Lowery, rFR; TJ Weddle, FR; Mike Fernandez, FR
    FS - Jack Swanson, JR; Chad King, FR; Rod Irvin, FR
    SS - Tyler Sash, SR; Tom Donatell, SR; Tanner Miller, rFR
    Prater (23T,5INT) was All-B1G last year and returns for his senior season. Bernstine (30,3) started last year and will be a senior as well. Lowe and Hyde (both 80OVR) will be slotted as CB2s. Swanson, 11/1, as a junior will be replacing Brett Greenwood at FS. He will be backed up by true frosh Chad King (70OVR). Sash (98OVR), 45/1 last year, is one of the best SSs in the country. He will be backed up by redshirt freshman Tanner Miller (86OVR).

    That sets the stage for the upcoming 2011 season. In real life, the Hawks tripped and stumbled to a 7-5 record, 4-4 in the B1G, before losing the Insight Bowl 31-14 to Oklahoma finishing the season at an uninspiring 7-6.

    The essential CORE of players from last year's (SIM) season return and set the stage for similar results in 2011. If Vandenberg can fill Stanzi's shoes and manage the offense, good things could happen. Thanks to those that are following this and checking in from time to time.

    2011 Game 1: Iowa State

    Iowa Slips Past Cyclones, 20-14

    Hawks Keep Cy-Hawk Trophy in Iowa City



    Ames - Iowa might be ranked #4 in the country and picked to contend for a B1G Title, but it took a Brandon Wegher punt return for the Hawks to beat in-state rival Iowa State in Ames. A short Jewel Hampton TD gave the Hawks an early 7-0 lead, but the heavily favored Hawks found themselves trailing the Cyclones 14-10 at the half. Wegher's 62 yard return in the 3rd gave Iowa the lead and Mike Meyer's second FG of the game gave the Hawks a 6 point win. James Vandenberg was only 13 of 26 for 162 yards and 2 INTs in his first career start. Wegher led all rushers with 147 yards on 21 carries. Freshman Adam Roberts caught 5 passes for 54 yards in his first career college game. Broderick Binns(7/3/1), Christian Kirksey (6/3/1) and Tyler Nielsen (6/2/1) led the Hawkeye defense. Shaun Prater and Tyler Sash both had INTs

    Iowa opens the season 1-0 for the second year in a row. The Hawks will host Pittsburgh next week. Thanks for following.

    2011, Game 2: Pittsburgh

    Iowa Leaps Past Panthers, 55-27

    28 Point 4th Quarter Propels Hawks



    Iowa City - We had a comfortable 27-10 lead at halftime before pissing it down our leg in the 3rd. Pitt came out after half and blanked us 17-0 to tie things up heading into the 4th. Backup QB, and true freshman, Jay Boyd threw for 3 4th quarter TDs and Tyler Sash returned an interception for a TD to salt away the blowout win over a ranked team. Jewel Hampton paced the ground game with 80 yards and 2 scores. Starting QB James Vanderberg was only 6 of 9 passing for 78 yards, but he did carry the ball for 46 yards and 2 TDs before being injured. Marvin McNutt had 2 TDs and 101 yards receiving on 6 catches. OLBs Tyler Nielsen and Christian Kirksey paced the Hawkeye defense with 10 and 9 stops, respectively.

    Iowa moves to 2-0 on the season. The Hawks will host Yale next week. Thanks for following.

    2011 Game 3: Yale

    Iowa Cruises Past Bulldogs, 38-3

    Hampton, Wegher Power Hawkeye Ground Game



    Iowa City - Jewel Hampton and Brandon Wegher scored 2 TDs apiece and combined for just over 250 yards rushing in our non-conference win over Yale today. We jumped out to a nice 21-0 lead in the first and pretty much set the cruise control after that. Yale got a field goal in the 2nd to make it 24-3 at the half before we tacked on insurance TDs in the 3rd and 4th. James Morris and Christian Kirksey led a balanced defensive effort with 4 stops each.

    The win bumps us to 3-0. Things get real in a hurry next week when we open B1G play at Wisconsin. Thanks for following.
