Hawkeye Report Podcast


Jan 18, 2024

It's somewhat of an emergency podcast today with news that Iowa has officially hired Beth Goetz as their athletic director. Tom Kakert and Matt Randazzo discuss the hiring, which shouldn't have come as a surprise. We talk about the job she has done since she arrived in Iowa City and how she has given a warm embrace to the Iowa Swarm Collective and also how she made a decision on Iowa's offensive coordinator. We also talk about how she is well prepared and equiped for the changing landscape of college athletics. 

Then we talk about the hiring that hasn't happened and that's the Iowa offensive coordinator position. Where do things stand and could this search be headed into the next week, which would be beyond the expecation that Kirk Ferentz had about a month ago. Are there any new candidates that are emerging? 

Next we discuss Kadyn Proctor, who officially entered the NCAA Transfer Portal on Thursday. What are Iowa's chances to land the five star offensive tackle? What would Iowa's offensive line look like if they landed Proctor? We also discuss how Proctor's arrivial in the transfer portal led to a massive spike in donations to the Iowa Swarm Collective. 

Finally we wrap up talking about Fran McCaffery and his record setting victory and how this Iowa men's team is improving witha  huge test coming up on Saturday against Purdue. Then we talk Iowa women's hoops and their huge contest on Sunday at Ohio State.
