IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Spring is here and it is time for the annual I-Club banquets across the state of Iowa and the Midwest. The 21-date schedule, which starts today and goes through the end of May, gives Hawkeye fans a chance to connect with members of the UI coaching staff and administration.

"The I-Club spring banquets are a great chance for our coaches and staff to say thank you to all of the Hawkeye fans who support us," said Matt Henderson, UI Foundation Executive Director of Development for Intercollegiate Athletics. "Whether it is being an I-Club member, purchasing season tickets or wearing the black and gold, we truly appreciate the generous support from our loyal fan base."

Each event will feature a program delivered by a team of UI coaches and athletics staff. The Black team will be led by Hawkeye Head Football Coach Kirk Ferentz and UI Women's Basketball Coach Lisa Bluder. The Gold team will feature appearances from Hawkeye Men's Basketball coach Fran McCaffery and UI Wrestling Coach Tom Brands. Various Hawkeye head coaches, assistant coaches and administrative staff will also participate at the events.
