In the year 2000, the Iowa Hawkeyes finished their football season with a 3-9 record. It was an improvement over the previous year, but still a disappointment to fans and the team.
Since then, football in Iowa City has been steadily thriving.
With Kirk Ferentz at the helm of Hawkeye football over the last decade, the Hawkeyes have had plenty of standout players. Several are now playing in the NFL and have become household names.
As the decade draws to a close, it seems a good time to reflect upon the success of the Iowa football program over the last 10 years with a list of the Iowa Hawkeyes All-Decade Team.
