Hawkeye fans know all about the running back curse at Iowa.

AIRBHG as it is known, is well documented, there is even an entire website dedicated to the topic.

So far in spring practice we’ve seen no injuries or departures, and there are plenty of candidates vying for the starting job.

The Hawkeyes will have 9 running backs on the roster when fall rolls around, but it’s likely just 3 are competing for playing time.

Mark Weisman, the former walk-on fullback is the #1 back right now.

The final spring practice is set for Saturday, April 27th at Kinnick Stadium and fans are invited to watch.
