Twelve Iowa football players were admitted to local area hospitals and clinics on Monday, according to a statement released by the Hawkeye medical staff. No names or cause for the treatment have been given.
Obviously this time of year there could several reasons for the treatment, so instead of speculating, we'll wait for more information to come out. UPDATE: The players have been diagnosed with exertional rhabdomyolysis. What is that you might ask? Apparently they've been working out a little too hard, resulting in damaged muscle fibers being released into the bloodstream and kidneys. Tue, Jan 25, 2011 10:45:00 PM

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi completed just 10 of 22 passes for pedestrian 127 yards and two touchdowns in a loss to Minnesota. 

It was the lowest yardage output for Stanzi in what was otherwise an excellent regular season.   His two touchdown passes gives him 25 on the year, at least one in every game.

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi threw for 288 yards and three touchdowns on Saturday against Ball State.

Over his past three games, Stanzi has tossed eight touchdown passes against just one interception.  He is now worth owning in all BCS fantasy leagues.

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi threw for 204 yards and two scores, and he added a running touchdown for good measure as the Hawkeyes took care of Iowa State.

Most importantly, Stanzi didn't throw any footballs to Cyclone defenders. However 50 Iowa runs compared to 20 total pass attempts doesn't bode well for the team's signal caller production moving forward.

Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz told WHO radio that quarterback Ricky Stanzi's knee is "absolutely fine." Stanzi missed a series on Saturday after "tweaking" his knee.

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi (ankle) says he is "pretty much 100 percent at this point."

This is good news for Hawkeye fans, although he will have to shake off the rust of not having taken a live snap since Nov. 7.

Iowa running back Adam Robinson (ankle) and quarterback Ricky Stanzi (ankle) will likely return to practice this weekend as they prepare for an upcoming bowl game.  

It sounds like both will be full speed, or close to it, for the bowl game. This is good news for the Hawkeyes.

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi had surgery on his right ankle and will likely miss the rest of the regular season.

Stanzi could return for a bowl game, but Stanzi's absence will greatly hinder Iowa's chances at a Big Ten title and BCS bowl bid.

Iowa quarterback Ricky Stanzi threw a career high five interceptions, but it didn't matter as Iowa rallied once again to remain undefeated.

Cardiac Hawks?  Stanzi threw touchdown passes of 92 and 66 yards in the fourth quarter as Iowa overcame deficits of 21-7 and 24-14.  He finished with 337 yards, hopefully giving you points to make up for the interceptions.

Iowa guard Julian Vandervelde may miss part of the season following a recent surgery.

While the specific surgery wasn't disclosed, the fact that the anticipated starting guard may miss game action is another dose of bad news for the Hawkeyes, who with some more off-field issues and the current unknown status of expected starting tailback Jewel Hampton could really use something positive to happen.

After a continuous merry-go-round at quarterback, head coach for the Iowa Hawkeyes, Kirk Ferentz, finally seems to have settled (at least for this week) on youngster Ricky Stanzi. The sophomore from Ohio responded resoundingly to the call to start under center against Indiana, finishing 12-of-20 for 184 yards and two touchdowns through the air.

Stanzi, in our opinion, continues to be a work in progress from a fantasy perspective and is more of an interest to owners in keeper leagues than anything else.
