QUICK LOOK BACK: How far back do you want to ? For bandwidth purposes, let’s keep it to the field and who’s still here. Potential No. 1 RB Jordan Canzeri suffered a torn ACL last March. Virtually untested Damon Bullock carried 30 times for 150 yards and the game-winning TD in Iowa’s opener against Northern Illinois at Soldier Field.

In order to counter Ferentz' shifty plan to use fullbacks at running back, AIRBHG has taken his wrath out on the Fullback depth chart, leaving third string Gimm as the starter. Weisman: In Iowa’s Saturday game against Northwestern, news has gone from bad to worse as leading rusher Mark Weisman has left the game with an injury. Weisman was helped off the field with just over a minute to go in the first half and has yet to return. Iowa City Press-Citizen beat writer Pat Harty is reporting that Weisman is riding a stationary bike on the sideline. Weisman entered Saturday’s game as the Hawkeyes leading rusher with 640 yards on the ground, but has also dealt with injuries the past two weeks. He sat out the end of the Hawkeyes overtime win against Michigan State after injuring his ankle, and was limited to just five carries last week because of the same injury.
