We wonder how some of this will work for the Hawkeyes this year.
— Senior running back LeShun Daniels is the main running back. He’s been close to and in and out of that role. This year, he’s getting that shot. What does he do with it?
— Some wide receivers’ profiles are really going to bloom. Senior Riley McCarron was targeted eight times last year. He’s a starter this season. It’s probably safe to say he’ll see a few more. What will he do with those? Sophomore Jay Scheel played three snaps in 2015. He’s the starting X receiver for the Hawkeyes going into Saturday’s game against Miami (Ohio). It’ll all be first for him.
— The defensive FAQs: Can Iowa find sturdy defensive line depth? Where is the pass rush going to come from?
— Punter Ron Coluzzi and kicker Keith Duncan arrived in Iowa City in June. If they didn’t already have a ride to Kinnick (the team stays at the Hotel Kirkwood and it buses to Kinnick), they might’ve gotten lost on their way.
Land of 10’s Scott Dochteman (it’s still weird for me, you guys) and I are still doing the On Iowa podcast. Today was the day. You guys responded with a mountain of Twitter questions, including several fabulous over/unders.
Thank you for listening and participating!
Scott and I picked someone to win Saturday. OK, I can’t play coy. You’ll just have to listen to hear by how much.
