By Andrew Gogerty Take one look at Jameel McKay, and it’s hard not to be excited as a Cyclones fan.  Take a look at his bio and what he’s accomplished at the junior college level as a two-time, first team, juco All-American, and the excitement grows a little more.  And that wingspan…oh, that wingspan.

By Andrew Gogerty BDJ or no BDJ, I’ve had tonight’s Cy-Hawk showdown pegged as a loss ever since the buzzer of last year’s thriller in Ames.  You’ll see no excuses from this Cyclones fan. Iowa is looking for revenge from last year’s second half collapse—a game they had led most of the night.   They’ve got ...

By Mathew Gogerty I think most Iowa fans would agree that a 7-5 overall record is pretty disappointing given the schedule the Hawks had pretty much “gift-wrapped” for them this year.  Not facing any of the “big boys” in Ohio State, Michigan State, Michigan or Penn State and getting Iowa State, Wisconsin and Nebraska all ...

By Mathew Gogerty This year’s Iowa basketball team looks eerily similar to last year’s team in many different facets.  After failing to cash in on a couple of opportunities to pad that post season resume with losses to (then #10) Texas and (then #23) Syracuse the Hawkeyes finally sealed the deal by beating (then #12) ...
