Iowa ready to slug it out with Wisconsin : Iowa

IOWA CITY | George Kittle found himself in a couple of three tight-end sets Saturday for the Iowa football team.

Wisconsin opted for splitting two fullbacks in the backfield at times last weekend to strengthen its ground game.

“The more big guys on the field, the better,’’ Kittle said Tuesday. “I’ll never complain about that.’’

That bulk works for both the Hawkeyes and Badgers, two teams preparing for a physical introduction to Big Ten play this season when they renew a rivalry defined by toughness and typically decided in the trenches.

At least Saturday’s 11 a.m. game at Camp Randall Stadium sets up that way.


Iowa vs. Wisconsin: Badgers brace for Big Ten opener vs. Hawkeyes - Bucky's 5th Quarter

Amazingly and sadly, the last time Iowa visited Camp Randall Stadium was 2009. Wisconsin took a 10-3 lead into halftime, but Scott Tolzien's three second-half interceptions and an awakened Iowa offense under Ricky Stanzi carried the Hawkeyes to a 20-10 victory. UW would lose two more games that season, which could be considered to be the beginning of the offensive renaissance under the coordinator at the time, Paul Chryst.

Following a win over No. 15 Miami in the 2009 Champs Sports Bowl, Wisconsin ended its next three seasons in Pasadena at the Rose Bowl. After the second of those, Chryst left for his first head coaching job, only to return this season as the Badgers' head coach.

Muhammad Ali and Joe Frazier nearly paid the ultimate price for glory 40 years ago at the Thrilla in Manila... Floyd Mayweather will never know how it feels to have one foot in the grave like these brave warriors  | Daily Mail Online

Forty years ago on Thursday two of the greatest boxers of all time fought themselves to the point where each had one foot in the grave.

Floyd Mayweather may care to watch the television replays which will commemorate this anniversary.

He has never been in a fight like the one which took place on October 1, 1975, which transfixed the attention of the world on the Philippines.
