Overview

This unique, compelling new title assembles the greatest players from one of the most celebrated teams in college football to share their personal memories. Filled with firsthand accounts with dozens of players—from the team's early days through the new millennium. What It Means to Be a Hawkeye: Kirk Ferentz and Iowa’s Greatest Players explores the program’s vast success and the seemingly simple question: What does it mean to be a Hawkeye? One person or one phrase cannot answer that question because so many different emotions encompass the true Hawkeye spirit. Over 50 of the greatest Iowa student-athletes, coaches, and administrators from the past century were called upon to express why they are so proud to be a part of the storied tradition that is Iowa football. What It Means to Be a Hawkeye brings together all of their stories. It’s not just one tradition, one season or one particular game—it’s the stories coming from the student-athletes and coaches who made the magic happen over the decades that capture the true essence of representing the University of Iowa.
