Wienke's Clutch Punt Was Designed
By John Campbell, TV9 Sports
IOWA CITY - Long before his foot hit the ball that changed this past Saturday's game between Iowa and Northern Illinois, John Wienke and the Hawkeye coaching staff had planned for that sort of 'pooch' kick.
And it worked well.
Wienke's punt, which was downed by Greg Castillo at the one-yard-line in this past Saturday's Iowa/NIU game (a 18-17 Iowa win), was part of the 'game preparation' and not a spur-the-moment decision.
TV9's John Campbell caught up with Wienke to talk about it.
