Media Day at Spring Practice

Outside of the annual Spring Game the media is allowed to visit Iowa football practice once. Many members of the local media have at least twenty minutes to get some photos, shoot some b-roll as well as get an idea to how the Hawkeyes practice. They are asked to leave before the competitive team periods begin, but two members of the Big Ten Network were allowed to stay. Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith, anchors of the Network's Studio Show watched on as they prepare for their coverage of each conference school's Spring Games. Each have had their history with the conference before joining the Big Ten Network. DiNardo had a short stint as Head Football Coach at Indiana while Griffith played his college football at the University of Illinois. Find out what they learned from their trip as well as how the Hawkeyes end their fifteen spring practice period when the Big Ten Network airs the Iowa Spring Game on April 17.
