Iowa has concluded its open spring practice, though it still has three practices left to go before we close the books on spring 2012.

Nevertheless, these things have to be expected. Spring practice is a learning experience, and the best way to learn is to make mistakes.
Here are some of the winners and losers as we close the books on this spring "game."
