Welcome to the refreshed, and entirely written by a human being, version of the Hawk Central newsletter.
It’s the start of the winter sports season here this week for the Hawkeye men’s and women’s basketball teams and the football team enters a season-defining matchup with Wisconsin.
So what better time to dust off this newsletter and give it some new life than now?
Going forward, in this space, we’ll send out newsletters, written by sports staff members, three times a week to your inbox, breaking down the top news and analysis of the week. That means, every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, you’ll get the very best of Chad Leistikow’s commentary, Mark Emmert’s storytelling, Matthew Bain’s recruiting coverage, Cody Goodwin’s wrestling coverage, Dargan Southard’s women’s basketball and baseball coverage and Hawk Central’s various podcasts and videos, without needing to scour around for it online or on social media.
For our most loyal readers, our subscribers, we are trying to make this a far improved experience for you.
So with all that, here’s the inside details on what you need to know from Tuesday’s Hawkeye press conferences:
