Video Sessions -- Word on the 'ultraback'
Northwestern and its creative use of ultraback Kain Colter are the main topics.
LB Anthony Hitchens
The junior linebacker talks about the challenges of facing an athlete like Northwestern's Kain Colter, who is a run-pass threat as a QB and also plays running back and wide receiver.
DL Steve Bigach
The senior defensive lineman discusses his assignment against a run-pass threat like Kain Colter.
FS Tanner Miller
If you're into the deep football stuff (I am), then listen to Miller drop some knowledge. Good stuff.
QB James Vandenberg
The senior QB talks about the tough stuff, about the only stuff coming his way. Off camera, he talked about his little sister having his back Saturday night. I imagine this is probably harder for the family to take than the player.
OT Brett Van Sloten
The junior OT talks about being one of three OTs left standing after two went down in last week's loss to Penn State. From the sounds of this, Van Sloten will stay put at right tackle.
RB Mark Weisman
The sophomore talks about his new major -- recovering from an ankle injury. Seriously, this sounds like a full-time job.
CB Micah Hyde
Getting football with the senior. He talks about the responsibilities a cornerback has when Iowa faces a QB who is as much of a threat to run as he is to pass. It's a lesson that Hyde learned the hard way at Ryan Field in '10.
DE Dominic AlvisThe junior defensive end talks about trying to contain the slippery QB. He still has the scars from 2011 Iowa State, when ISU QB Steele Jantz broke contain against Iowa and broke into the lore of the Cy-Hawk rivalry.
