Sneak Preview: Hawkeye Nation, October Issue

Some say that you can't judge a book by its cover. That might be true in some instances, but it's not the case with <i>Hawkeye Nation</i>, the magazine. Our October issue featuring Abdul Hodge and Chad Greenway is already one of our most requested issues to date. Here is a sneak preview of what will fill the pages of this issue.

Feature story on Iowa's Dynamic Duo at linebacker: Abdul Hodge and Chad Greenway. They each play with reckless abandon, striking fear into the hearts of opposing players. However, they came to Iowa from opposite ends of the figurative world. Hodge was born in the Virgin Islands and raised in a one-parent home in Ft. Lauderdale, while Greenway grew up on a hog farm in South Dakota. Their stories are as amazing as their talents.

Connie Hawkins: Flight Interrupted One of the best street ball players in New York history was once a Hawkeye, if only for a short while. Connie ‘The Hawk' Hawkins originally committed to Colorado, but some incidents there saw him land in Iowa City. He wowed Fieldhouse crowds when he played freshman ball at Iowa, but he was not to take flight in Iowa City, as he was ensnared in a game fixing ring and his character tarnished. You will learn about all of that, plus his rise out of the ashes and how his life changed in Phoenix.

Walking On: An Iowa Football Legacy Tyler Luebke is the latest player to walk on at Iowa and find himself in the middle of the action…literally. Luebke is a starter on one of the most fearsome front's Iowa has assembled, and Hawkeye Nation beat writer Rob Howe tells his story.

Son of a Gun: Iowa QB Commit Jake Christensen Just being the son of a former NFL quarterback does not guarantee you stardom in your own right. Though Iowa quarterback commit Jake Christensen might be a chip off the old block, he is writing his own legend as one of the nation's top signal callers.

Recruiting Calendar Gets Longer Players are committing at a brisk pace much earlier in the year than ever before. Hawkeye Nation publisher Jon Miller speaks with Iowa Recruiting Coordinator and Tight Ends coach Eric Johnson and sheds some light on Iowa's recruiting philosophies, their reasons behind their recent recruiting successes and much more.

Plus regular monthly columns from Jon Miller, Rob Howe and Marty Gallagher's ‘If You're Scoring at Home'.
