I'm back too. I've taken off two weeks from writing. I didn't check, but I'm pretty sure that's the longest break I have taken since I started this blog two and a half years ago. It was nice. On vacation I think I got online a total of 3 or 4 times and it was just to check my email. This past week I've been sleeping in a little and just catching up on reading all the good content that's out there in the Hawkeye blogosphere as everyone is gearing up for the season to start. I plan on catching up on writing about some of the things I missed, like the new recruits, over the next week or so. But after my two week hiatus I am more ready to just start talking about the upcoming season...which begins today.

Iowa Media Day kickoffs with a Kirk Ferentz presser today at 1:30 (I think you will be able to stream the presser live on Hawkeye All-Access. Then the media will be open to other coaches and non-true freshmen players from 2-4. The incoming freshmen just reported on Wednesday and the rest of the players yesterday, so there probably won't be too many changes from KF on the state of the program since the B1G Media Days last week. There should be plenty of good content from the players however.

So I'm back, football is back, the world is good.
