    Dallas Clark | WUW 500

    Dallas was born in Sioux Falls, SD and was a stand out athlete in basically every sport he could play at Twin River Valley High School. He was recruited by Hayden Frye and ended up Greyshirting in Hayden's last year, joining the program officially after KF stepped in for the 1999 season. He faced multiple injuries and setbacks in his first couple seasons but made his way onto special teams in 2000 where he was able to make an impact. He was initially playing Linebacker, and was moved to Tight End where we finished his last 2 seasons for the Hawks. His senior year he won the Mackey award for the nations best tight end, and was drafted 24th overall to the Colts the following spring. Dallas spent over a decade in the NFL, mostly in Indianapolis, and is considered one of the best Tight Ends to ever play the game. Today Dallas has his hand is dozens of projects and ventures and is still very active as a Hawkeye, coming back to Iowa City to help with the program and produce events like the concert in Kinnick circa 2015. We hit on a long list of topics including his playing career, his best teammates, his Iron Man training, his coaches, and so much more.

He played Quarterback in high school and wanted to in college as well, and he talks about the reason he ended up on the Defense. As Iowa fans know, Cooper established himself as one of the greatest all around athletes for Iowa Football in the history of the program. He's now been training for the 2024 NFL draft after declaring early back in January. He will likely be a 1st round pick, and he talks about how crazy it is coming from small town Iowa to be thrust onto the big stage.

We hit a ton of other fun topics as well.

    Brody Brecht | WUW 498

    Brody is from Ankeny, Iowa. Stud high school athlete, he was offered scholarships by both Iowa Baseball and Football, and that's what brought him to Iowa City as he was most interested in being a 2 sport athlete. He is now the Ace for the Hawkeye baseball team in his Junior year, and is considered the 17th best Pro prospect in America. We discuss his journey into collegiate athletics as a 2 sport guy, and why ultimately football had to be left behind last spring to focus on baseball. We talk about where his pitch speed is at today, how last fall he was able to add a pitch to his arsenal, how more free time has allowed his body to feel better and more prepared for the season, and what he sees in this years squad. Could the Hawks be eyeing Omaha this summer? We also discuss his diet, his crazy freshman year schedule, and a whole lot more.

    Jon Budmayr- Guilty Until Proven Innocent | WUW 495

    Jon Budmayr- Guilty Until Proven Innocent | WUW 495

    Conversation on Budmayr starts at about 35 mins into the show

    On tonight's show we discuss the shows brief attempt at getting Walkons the restaurant to sponsor the show, and the recent poll we ran on Twitter to help prod at Kevin to take over with more mic time on the show. We discuss the optics of the Kelce/Swift relationship and some of Kelce's sponsors in relation to drawing attention to the NFL and other causes. We break down the Super Bowl, talking about the punt return mishap, Kittle's lack of targets and usage, and the 9ers not running the ball in the second half. Leonhard was hired by the broncos and and some teams odds for '25. Then we mull over the idea of the Super Bowl happening in Vegas every single year. We discuss 5k sub ideas, and guessing Kevin's salary. We then get into the Budmayr hire for the Iowa WR coach position. The immediate negativity surrounding the hire on social media and why people aren't happy.. does a guy need to have played/coached a position to be credible? How easy is it as a football guy to adapt and learn to teach a position at a high level? Was this a lazy hire by simply elevating someone within the program? And does this guy deserve the negativity when he hasn't even gotten a chance to prove himself yet? We finish by touching on the scoring record that Caitlin will break the day this pod releases, and if we would sell our hypothetical floor tickets to this game..

Friendship podcast is a hoot

I miss Drake, but G-bone is a great addition. Kevin is always solid and insightful. And Tyler is the glue that holds it all together. They are sometimes controversial, often hilarious, and always true black and gold Hawkeyes. I won’t miss an episode!

Is the merch at scheels legit?

There is HBAM at scheels and I wanted to know if that was from you guys or if they were making their own.

Great perspective

Had season tickets since 2009 and remember watching these guys play! Particularly Kluv since his name was called out constantly on long snaps. I’m fairly new to the podcast as I was recommended by a fellow tailgate buddy late in the season. These are definitely the guys you want to crack a beer and have some breakfast with on gameday. Keep doing what you’re doing guys and let’s get the dub in Indy this weekend! Hawks by a million!
