The media guide was released today. While most of the information is rehash for the majority of Hawkeye fans, there are a few interesting tidbits, the first being the pre-season depth chart, listed at the bottom of this story.
Each year, several current hawkeyes are interviewed for the media guide, talking about why they picked Iowa. this year, A.J. Edds, Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, Adrian Clayborn and Bryan Bulaga were selected.
There are now also pronunciation guides for each individual player, instead of just the 'usual suspects.' A few surprises..Tyler GIR-stand, PAH-ki O'Meara, Chris RAH-ul, and uh-MAR-ee spuh-VAY.
