Weisman's Load May Be Lighter in 2014
Wed, 20 Aug 2014 08:00:27 CDT

A deep corps of running backs should take some of the pressure off of Iowa senior Mark Weisman this season. Weisman led the Hawks with 975 yards on the ground in 2013, but more than 600 came in the first five games of the season. Weisman says all of the running backs bring something different to the offense.


Weisman adds that they will all benefit from running behind an experienced offensive line.


Iowa is coming off an eight win season and has a lot of experience but Weisman says that does not guarantee success this season.


Iowa opens August 30th against UNI.
