    Norm Parker

    I believe I just heard Norm Parker is in the hospital right now. This is per the Matt and Miller show.

    The gameplan is already set, does this add a little juice to the hawkeye defense?

    Oh yeah, I hope he is OK. Damn good coach.

    He will not miss the game from what I have heard.

    Re: Norm Parker

    gotta give the guy props. He has iowa state figured out.

    Hopefully he's healthy for the game.

    (btw, weren't there rumors that this was going to be his last season?)

    Re: Norm Parker

    I hope he's OK.

    The man's got every team figured out (except maybe Northwestern). Really a coordinator legend.

    But most importantly, I hope he's OK.

    Re: Norm Parker

    Norm is a physical wreck with serious health issues, but he can sure game day a defense. I hope he can make it to the game, but in reality, he should probably hang it up and enjoy some of the huge paychecks he has earned.

    From Marc Morehouse (CR Gazette sports writer) Twitter page a hour or so ago:
    Iowa D-coordinator Norm Parker in hospital. Wheel chair, right foot bandaged. Doesn't plan to miss game. Walk across street and back.

    Re: Norm Parker

    Seems like he is on death's door every year....followed up by a kick *** season as D Coordinator.

    Guy can coach.

    Re: Norm Parker

    Norm Parker is a baller. He has had serious health problems for years now and each year he makes it back and coaches a great defense. I can't see him staying past this season, but who knows.

    Re: Norm Parker

    Norm and Joe Pa have to be the toughest old men around. Joe Pa once broke a leg or hip and still finished coaching the game.

    Norm really doesn't have much trouble with NW. Even last year the D only gave up 10 points.
