Iowa football: Investment in graduate transfer market paying off for Hawks

Last year the Iowa football team was one of the worst teams in college football in terms of punting. Colten Rastetter was ranked near the bottom of the pile with a disappointing average of 38.9 yards per punt on 50 punts.

It was so bad, the Iowa football team utilized a resource they don’t use: the transfer portal.

Fortunately, there was a fantastic punter on the market in Michael Sleep-Dalton who wanted an opportunity to punt in less than stellar weather conditions. He picked a good place in Iowa, which can get some nasty weather later in the season, and as we saw during the Iowa State game, in September.
