SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

Throwback Thursday

Sept. 4, 1991 — Ahead of Iowa’s matchup with Hawaii, former Iowa football coach Hayden Fry said he was going to give senior quarterback Matt Rodgers more freedom in terms of play calling.

“We’ll pile it on him,” Fry said. “I’ll give him a lot more authority from an audible standpoint, as far as changing the plays. There might be entire series against Hawaii where I just say, ‘Hey, Matt, you call your own plays.’ ”

Rodgers completed 65 percent of his passes that season for 2,275 yards, 14 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
