Barfknecht: Hawkeyes' offensive problems start with the play-caller

Iowa football coaches, players and fans seem puzzled by the struggles through three games to move the ball, particularly on the ground. May I suggest a two-word answer: Greg Davis.


Big Ten notes: Wisconsin coach sees progress from QB Joel Stave

Joel Stave, Wisconsin’s starting quarterback in 2013, still hasn’t taken a snap this season after developing a mental block passing the ball. That condition, similar to the yips, has led to his removal from game preparation, though he still takes part in practice.


Nebraska, Creighton coaches see matchup as important for sport, state

No. 9 Nebraska and Creighton renew their in-state series Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Devaney Center in what will be the largest collection of Nebraska natives on a Division I college volleyball court this year.

Lauren Smith is more accustomed to going to the Devaney Center for swim meets than volleyball matches. The Creighton middle blocker was a multi-sport athlete for Lincoln Pius X and qualified for the state swimming and diving championships all four years.
