Welcome to the Iowa Hype Podcast. My son and I are avid Hawkeye fans and enjoy spending time together talking about the team, and life in general. My goal with this podcast is to spend some time with my son and be able to enjoy these episodes in 20 years. Right now this is just a fun thing we did together, but hopefully, it turns into something we can do together every couple of weeks!

    This week's episode is pretty short on content, and heavy on hypotheticals. During the season Matthew and I hope to chat briefly about the previous game, and preview the upcoming game. We are not analysts and quite frankly won't give you a detailed breakdown of the game. But we can entertain you for half an hour, and when the season is over we will resume our player interviews.

    Episode 17, we sit down with former long-snapper and current podcast host Tyler Kluver. As a walk-on for the University of Iowa, Tyler played through multiple successful seasons at Iowa, including a historic Rose Bowl season in 2015. After graduation, Kluver started the Washed up Walk-ons Podcast alongside 2 of his former teammates at Iowa. Now with well over 300 episodes under their belts, the Washed up Walk-ons have built quite the following, and continue to give back large amounts to the children's hospital from much of their earnings. Our podcast is the family-friendly alternative to the WuW podcast built for kids, and we discuss how the 2 are definitely not in competition, but a companion piece for the kids of the Walk-on listeners. This is by far the longest episode we've ever had, and we probably could have kept going for easily another hour. Tyler is full of great answers, and seemed to enjoy being on the hot seat at the end of the episode.  Make sure to check out their podcast HERE. And follow them here on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. Make sure you let Tyler know what you thought of the episode and drop us some feedback. Welcome to the Iowa Hype Podcast.

    Episode 16, the future of Tight End U, Luke Lachey. As a sophomore, Luke is already making a name for himself in the tight end room both on and off the field. As a native of Columbus, Ohio, Luke's father played for the Buckeyes and is still the gameday broadcaster for the Bucs. It was a huge snag for the Hawkeyes to land this recruit, and we couldn't be any more excited to chat with him. Matthew and I both believe Luke will follow in his father's footsteps by playing successfully in the NFL soon. Luke was completely willing to talk to us and was an awesome guest! Funny side story, my wife's Aunt was Luke's 6th grade history teacher in Ohio. We chat about that connection, how much he looks forward to going back to Columbus this season, and what super power he would prefer to have if given the choice. Follow him here on Instagram!

    Episode 13, quite possibly one of the most generationally recognized names in hawkeye football's recent history. With a father that played at Iowa in the late 90's, a brother that played defensive end recently, and another brother that has an offer to play at Iowa. Eric is the 3rd Epenesa in a family full of very talented athletes. He's a young underclassman on the team, but poised to make a true impact in the coming years, both on and off the football field.

    Episode 12, the international guest edition. Matthew started out worried that he wouldn't be able to understand or comprehend what Tory was saying, and ended up having a blast. A native of Australia, Tory attended a punting academy and made the seamless transition to American college football with high praise from those closest to the program. Tory has won the hearts of fans with his charming looks, witty press conferences, and pinpoint punt placements. Tory Taylor will be a Junior Punter for the Iowa Hawkeyes this coming season. Normally punting is an afterthought of the fans, or an opportunity to get up and use the restroom during the punts, but Tory is captivating to watch. His control of the ball and placement make it such an exciting opportunity to see where our defense will be able to start. Matthew loved this one and it really was a lot of fun. Tory is a great guest and we think you'll love listening. Follow him on Instagram and Twitter. And make sure you check out the awesome work he's doing with "Count the Kicks," at countthekicks.org.

    Episode 11, we have our 1st ever guest that's not a student athlete. Parker Dilley is one of the creative team that produces the videos you see on social media for the Iowa Hawkeye Football Team. He's been working with the Hawkeyes since he was a student there in college, aside from the short stint when he was a Maryland Terrapin for less than a year. Parker makes an incredible product week after week with both hype videos, and hit films that cover each game. If you saw Matthew's first ever Hype video we made, we straight up ripped it off of Parker and his creative team. He was ever so gracious and was complimentary in our efforts to duplicate his masterpiece. They do say imitation is the purest form of flattery. Parker works 7 days a week during the season and is extremely fun to chat with. This is our longest podcast ever, and I feel like I could have chatted with him easily for another hour. His Vimeo channel is absolutely INCREDIBLE! Check it out HERE. Make sure you check out his awesome Instagram and follow him on Twitter. Welcome to the Iowa Hype Podcast.

    Episode 10, our 5th ever guest, and this one really comes through. Kaevon Merriweather is a Senior from the state of Michigan, competing as a Defensive Back for the Iowa Hawkeyes. He is a very well spoken, smart, thoughtful athlete, as evidenced by not his social media, but the University of Iowa's Social Media feed. He is spotted giving back time and time again to the youth. Our first upperclassman and what might be our most fun interview yet. Kaevon is an absolute beautiful soul, as well as an incredible athlete, and the conversation ranged from his memories at Iowa, experiences, his acting debut, and even got into some African-American history and how we can all do better. Honestly, we didn't get in everything I wanted to talk to him about, but I know we will have him back on again one day to finish our conversation. He's just a player that is really "Bigger Than the Game!" Make sure you check out his very aesthetically pleasing Instagram and follow him on Twitter.
