Hawkeyes want more points & consistency

The Hawkeyes wrap up spring football practice with the annual scrimmage on Saturday. Iowa fans will be looking for something positive, after a 4-8 record last year caused the Hawks to miss a bowl game for the first time since 2007.

This will be year number two for offensive coordinator Greg Davis. The Hawkeyes scored just 22 touchdowns last season, with just seven passing TD's.

There's a three-way battle for the starting quarterback job, but none of the three, Jake Rudock, Cody Sokol or C-J Beathard took a snap last season.

The Hawks were 11th in the Big Ten in scoring.

"It's hard to put a finger out it. It really is," said Marc Weisman. "We had injuries but that's no excuse. We weren't clicking, we weren't consistent. We showed signs that we could do it but we definitely weren't consistent and that's what we're working on it, being consistent."

"The quarterbacks are making strides. Those guys are young. They are learning," said Martin-Manley. "They're coming along. The biggest thing they have to do is just settle down and slow the game down for them. Those guys are getting better."

Coach Davis says the QB race is too close to call.
