Preparing for the season

A month away from the kick-off to the 2011 season when Tennessee Tech enters Kinnick Stadium to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. Much work is needed before that day, and the Iowa Football team begins its practice on Friday. But aside from the football team and staff work is going on around the athletic department grounds to ensure the fans have the best possible experience this season. Starting this week banners have been posted on Kinnick's exterior walls. Along with the Hayden Fry banner, other notable Hawkeyes can be found around the historic stadium. Nate Kaeding, Nile Kinnick, Adrian Clayborn and Brad Banks are among some of the stars promoted.
The video department is also in the midst of their preparation. Above they are finishing up lift safety certification. The five plus hour class was important to ensure the staff knew their way around the aerial devices.
And the move to HD is underway. Projectors, displays and cameras are showing up all around 930 Evashevski Drive. These devices are being installed in the team meeting room.
