Stay healthy, Stanzi
People forget the Hawkeyes were 9-0 in 2009 before quarterback Ricky Stanzi twisted his ankle against Northwestern. The Wildcats defeated Iowa 17-10, and Ohio State beat the Stanzi-less Hawkeyes 27-24 in overtime the following week. Stanzi is back for his senior season, and while Iowa lost most of its offense, it was Stanzi, who threw for 17 touchdowns, that made it go in 2009. Not known for receivers, Iowa will provide Stanzi with weapons in senior Derrell Johnson-Koulianos and junior Marvin McNutt.
Hawkeyes quarterback Ricky Stanzi threw for 17 touchdowns last season and is back for his senior year.
