iowa....cold and very on the hawks battle with the wind and the illini. iowa has beaten illinois the last two meetings... it was senior day for the illini, and one of those seniors was marion grad andrew davis. rough start for the iowa offense... second quarter, c.j. beathard over the middle to riley mccarron, but it bounces off his hands and gets picked off by dillan cazley. the hawkeyes would get the ball back and were driving... on 4th and 2, the pitch to akrum wadley... he gets the first down and
6:22 pm
illinois recovers inside the five. "i had the ball covered with two hands, they just ripped the ball out. there's something about this stadium because i had one two years ago. there's something about memorial stadium." but his teammates pick him up... jaleel johnson nearly gets a safety for the second straight week... hawkeyes force illinois to punt. and on the punt, mccarron has ton of open space up the middle and he is gone... the dubuque wahlert grad takes on the board up 7-0 and that would be the score at halftime. "desmond had a great block, he picked up that guy that wasn't the last one being blocked. i saw a seam and i just hit it. just sort of reaction. yea, they opened up a huge seam. i had the easy job." 3rd quarter, iowa's rushing game picks up... leshun daniels breaks free looking to score... the refs say touchdown, but the play was reviewed and he was
6:23 pm
for the score... iowa takes a 14-0 lead. "you think, 'oh man. shoot, i didn't get in.' then you look at it and think they'll give you another opportunity. which they did, so i was happy." the defense held illinois in check... desmond king comes up with the interception... one of the few times illinois threw in his direction. 4th quarter, daniels takes it up the middle and he is loose... watch him keep his balance and stay inbounds... then he dives for the end zone... he's in for the 50- yard score... hawkeyes pulling away up 21-0. "i just thought that deception by akrum, because he's a good playmaker, really opens it up for me. i mean there was literally no one there. all i had to do was just run for a score." on the ensuing kickoff, freshman manny rugamba continues to have a great season... he strips the ball and recovers the fumble... iowa takes
6:24 pm
the 2-yard score... iowa shutsout illinois 28-0 improving to 7-4 on the season... this team is gaining some confidence. "certainly i thought they played with a lot of determination, a lot of discipline, a lot of decisiveness. we walked into a challenging environment. a big contrast from last week with the weather and it not being a night game." "it's all about going out here and playing team football, playing as a unit and sticking together. and not listening like that. and just coming out as a team and getting a win, that's what it's all about." this is the first time iowa's had a shutout since 2010. the defense had another solid performance giving up just 198 total yards. the hawkeyes host nebraska on friday and that game will have a lot of meaning for both teams. from champaign, illinois, josh christensen tv9 sports. thanks josh. we'll be right

hey, i read that someone invented a way to convert your footsteps into electromagnetic energy so you can charge your cell phone while walking. we had that idea years ago. how come we never did anything with it? probably because we left the diagram of it in the restaurant, and none of us wanted to walk back. i know the real reason you never made progress with that idea. you thought of it september 22, 2007. and so much blood rushed to your genitals, your brain became a ghost town. that's not what happened. i remember it distinctly because i had just composed my annual poem commemorating the anniversary of dr. seuss's death. no one wants to hear it. why, die. why did he die? old, told. i was told he was old. penny is not the reason i didn't pursue that idea.
