WEEK 6: Rodents

Ah yes, Floyd is resting the the comfortable climate of Iowa City and not the frozen tundra of the Twin Cities, for the 4th year in a row.  Hawks in the process of claiming the Rodents outdoor stadium as Kinnick North - Outdoor.  Rest easy for 12 months Floyd.

As Saturday morning turned to afternoon, a rather alarming update came from the Iowa media - the Hawks would be starting two true freshman in the secondary (Ojemudia and Hankins had been dinged up, were in uniform, but held out one more week), as Moss #33, a 6’0 195 freshman out of Ankeny, and Brents, #20, a 6’2, 180 freshman out of Indianapolis, would be starting at both corner spots.  The last time the Hawks started two freshman in the secondary?  2000.  They, Benny Sapp, and some guy named Bob Sanders.
