Iowa’s self-made quarterback, Nate Stanley; Desmond King turning heads in NFL

Iowa football is always the main topic in Iowa Breakfast Club, Land of 10’s daily Hawkeyes notebook — but we cover news, notes and analysis across Hawkeyes sports. Join us each morning to get caught up on everything you missed in the world of Iowa football, recruiting, basketball and more.

The self-made quarterback

How did Nate Stanley develop into a signal caller capable of throwing 5 touchdowns against Ohio State? By eschewing the traditional path of working with a quarterbacks coach. Stanley, and his dad, honed his craft on their own with the help of YouTube videos, as Marc Morehouse of the Cedar Rapids Gazette reports.

Making a quick impact

Former Iowa defensive back Desmond King quickly made a home for himself as the Los Angeles Chargers slot corner. It’s part of the reason why Eric D. Williams, of ESPN, gave King his highest grade of any rookie on the team.

Mailbag time

How will the Ohio State win help Iowa on the recruiting front? That question, and more, is tackled in the latest Land of 10 Iowa recruiting mailbag.

Drawing up an upset

What is Iowa’s best blueprint for an upset of Wisconsin on Saturday? Land of 10 designs it right here.

A future star?

The early basketball signing period started on Wednesday. Joe Wieskamp, a 4-star shooting guard, became the highest ranked recruit to sign with men’s coach Fran McCaffery. He will likely only hold the designation for one year with 4-star guard Patrick McCaffery set to sign in 2019.

Figuring out what’s to come

A wrestling season is full of unknowns. It can scare a coach, but as Iowa coach Tom Brands heads into the 2017-18 season, he’s excited for the unknowns. Cody Goodwin of the Des Moines Register explains why.

Break it down

The Iowa women’s basketball team signed four players on Wednesday. Matthew Bain of the Des Moines Register fills you in on all you need to know about Monika Czinano, Kate Martin, Logan Cook and Tomi Taiwo.
