    Iowa Women Football League?

    Anybody here ever hear about a womens football league in Iowa? I never had today until it was slow in the office and I streamed Jon Miller's show when he was interviewing the coach and a player(QB maybe?). Apparently they play at the Valley football stadium and are called the Iowa Crush. News to me that's for sure.

    The Iowa Crush

    I remember hearing about them last year also.

    EDIT: They were previously the Des Moines Courage. They finished 4-4 last summer.

    I have a friend/coworker who's a member. They're pretty hardcore - she had to get knee surgery recently because of an injury sustained during a game, I believe.

    Re: Iowa Women Football League?

    This is their 4th or 5th year in the league. They used to play at SE Polk High School.

    The thing that I found...they practice 3 times per week and some of their members are hours away from Des Moines.

    Anyone want to guess how much they get paid to do this? Zero. It is unpaid. That IS hardcore.

    This is SWEEEEET.

    I say we pick a game and do a CF Tailgate! This would be a blast.

    Re: Iowa Women Football League?

    Do we have a men's league that is about the same level as the Crush? Or did I see the Crush practicing last Summer in the Valley Stadium maybe?

    If they are unpaid, I would definitely classify them as hardcore. Then add in the fact that some of their bio's say they are married with kids, and, in some cases, have a full time job too.

    Yes. Kevin Lazard, former ISU running back plays for them. I coached his son last fall.

    I'm not sure if it's the Crush as well or something else. Yet they do play at Valley.

    Iowa Threshers!! Why does Iowa always have to associate itself with farming(i.e. Barnstormers & Threshers)?? Talking about feeding the stereotype.

    FYI...Lazard was a DB at ISU.

    Re: Iowa Women Football League?

    When I first saw the title of the thread, I thought that it was referring to a new direction for Iowa's football team.

    Seriously, though, I remember reading about the tryouts for the Des Moines team in the summer of '03 when I lived there.

    Umm... b/c this is a farming state. I realize most of us live in the city, but even then it's heavily agricultural-related (Davenport has John Deere World Headquarters across the river in Moline nearby, Cedar Rapids has Cargill, Des Moines has Farmer's Insurance among other things, heck, ISU's one of the best Ag colleges in the nation). Instead of dumping it, it should be embraced.

    Gotta admit, having a Cyclone in the logo's pretty sweet, but did they have to use Suckeye colors?


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?

    Yeah, I was driving to Des Moines the other day, and all I saw was corn fields. These people are feeding the stereotype too. And don't get me started on all the damn tractors.

    He said he played running back. So either I heard him wrong or he did some of both.

    Or perhaps he's playing running back for the Iowa league.
