Enthusiasm high for Ballard

Junior defensive end Christian Ballard knows the spotlight will be on the D-line next fall, with the departures of all-timer DTs Mitch King and Matt Kroul.

He tells the official Hawkeye site all about it.

Here’s a quote:

“The energy is really high,” Ballard said. “The intensity is high, the tempo is high and everybody’s looking forward to next season. We let four games slip away from us last season. We’re getting our fundamentals and technique down so we can get to a higher bowl game than we did last year.”
