Welcome to Bleacher Report's live analysis of the Iowa Spring...uhhh...Game.

As Hawkeye fans are well aware, Kirk Ferentz doesn't actually have a spring game. Rather, it is more of an open practice.

For those that have ever attended a spring game, basically, the starters go against the starters, the back-ups go against the back-ups and they are put in situations.

There are no drives, there is no scoring.

For that matter, both the quarterbacks and running backs are in red jerseys, so the major contact comes at the line of scrimmage between the offensive and defensive linemen.

Despite a worry of severe weather, the temperature in Iowa City is a perfect 59 degrees.

Scroll down for updates from throughout the "game."
