The Eternal Season - Friday August 5th

Good Afternoon TES Friends!  Late Friday afternoon, almost there!

A Friday filled with some of the best news in months.  Hawkeye Football has started fall camp.

That's right, and Kirk has just had his first 'in-season' presser, and per usual, we didn't learn much that we didn't already know. But that is all right, as he said multiple times, there are 4 weeks of practice, and on a team with so few returning starters, there is going to be intense competition for several key positions between now and September 3rd.  Battles that will help the team down the road, by providing depth that will be critical in the back half of the season.

The first pre-season polls are out, and the Hawks come in 30th in the USA Today poll (5th of the teams getting votes beyond 25).  Just fine, close enough to be in the polls after a couple weeks, and keep climbing up the polls as the team gets stronger going into October and November.

Tiger is 7 shots off the lead after his now completed 2nd round (I lied, we couldn't see all his shots, as he went off before Golf Channel started their coverage).  But as he is -1 after the first 36, I would think he is ok with where he is after the long break.  The Tiger of old often made a serious charge on Saturday, we may get an idea tomorrow of just how close he might be to being back.

A full slate in baseball for Friday, where the Dodgers/DBacks series can go a long way to putting this season to bed.  Then again, a Dodger sweep would inject some life.  Stranger things have happened.

Enjoy your Friday night!  Back tomorrow with another Hawkeye football video.  Have a great weekend!
