    The Iowa Hawkeyes are the athletic teams that represent the University of Iowa, located in Iowa City, Hawkeyes have varsity teams in 24 sports, 11 for men and 13 for women. The teams participate in Division I of the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) and are members of the Big Ten tly, the school's athletic director is Gary Barta. Mike spent the year working on a book, KINNICK—the novel, which explores the life UI football legend Nile Kinnick might have lived had he survived World War II. But the international journey continues for the Kielkopfs. This fall they began their twelfth year of overseas teaching when they ventured to Valencia, Venezuela, where Mike is chair.

      BTW: If you want the accurate text of Kinnick's speech in its entirety, you might look for a book called "Kinnick: the novel." I think it's available from Amazon and others online, and it used to be at Iowa Book in Iowa City.   Karr said the book is a novel, but much of the book is taken from his own personal experience. Since Karr and Kinnick share the same hometown, the novel is available at the Adel Museum and has sold to about 5 percent of the population of Adel in less than a year.
