    “He had been building up all his aggression for that one day and it was not a fun practice for myself,” Lang said of his senior heavyweight. “He literally beat me up and it was not fun.”

    A 21-14 loss to LSU in the Outback Bowl wasn’t the way sophomore Nate Meier and his Iowa teammates had hoped to finish their season, but the former Fremont-Mills football standout says the future is bright for the Hawkeye program.

    Iowa’s 8-5 record was a vast improvement over a 4-8 campaign in 2012 and Meier believes the Hawkeyes will only get better as they begin off-season preparations for 2014.
