The Hawkeye's biggest problem
is at tackle, where, last year they
had the best in the nation. Alex
Karras, an All America, and sec-
and stringer Frank Rigney used
up their eligibility and move into
the pro scene.
A major loss, however, was Dick

Other candidates at tackle are
Bob Swanson, Willard Hilde-

There are also three returning
