The Iowa Hawkeyes resumed Fall Camp on Saturday with a practice inside Kinnick Stadium open to the public and the media for Kids' Day. Head coach Kirk Ferentz, his staff, and the players began the day by signing autographs, convening with fans, and taking pictures with many of the kids in attendance.
Afterwards, they went to work as usual, practicing in front of the crowd on hand. They went through walkthroughs, special teams work, position drills, 7-on-7 action, and capped it off with scrimmage action in full pads.
Though the quarterbacks were wearing non-contact jerseys, everybody else was full board and a few bone-crushing hits were delivered, including one from linebacker Bo Bower.
The offense had its issues at times, but the defense had a terrific day. The standouts were cornerback Desmond King and defensive end Drew Ott.
Freshman James Daniels broke into the first unit on the offensive line at different points during the day, which was a noteworthy development.
Also, key players Jordan Lomax and Jordan Walsh were held out of action again, but Kirk Ferentz insisted afterwards that the injuries suffered by the projected starters are not considered serious.
