The Big Ten Network tour bus rolled into Iowa City on Thursday night, taping segments for their Iowa preseason special program that will air on August 26th.

While that’s a week away, BTN members were tweeting some of their thoughts from practice. Dave Revsine and Brent Yarnia were the two tweeters. Here is a rundown of what they had to say from practice. You can follow them on twitter at @btndaverevsine & @btnbrentsblog

First, tweets from Revsine:

-Great to see Jewel Hampton back in there – looks like he’s ready to go
-As always – Ferentz incredibly involved in everything that happens – probably one of the most vocal HC’s in Big Ten during practice
-Really liked Keenan Davis when I saw him last year and still do – think he could have a big yr. CJ Fiedorowicz will be a match-up nightmare
-Howard just commented that he really likes the looks of Mike Daniels in the DL drills. Good motor, good strength.
-Just watched Shaun Prater standing maybe 5 ft away from the JUGS machine catching balls fired out of it one-handed. Impressive stuff.
-Jeremiah Hunter having a nice practice – seems poised to take over for Angerer as their playmaker at LB
-Sweet cut-back by Jewel Hampton after catching a screen pass drawing some oohs and aahs. Then, McNutt w a great 1-handed TD catch.
-This defensive line is really, really good. Clayborn is obviously a beast. Ballard has looked great – and Daniels has been a revelation.

Now, tweets from Brent Yarnia
-DL Mike Daniels really impressing Howard during individual drills vs. The O-Line.
-Stanzi has looked pretty solid most of practice but still needs work on the INTs, just gave one up to Shane DiBona
-PK Daniel Murray & Trent Mossbrucker still not separating themselves, just matched each other 2-2 from same distance out.
-Second team offensive line having a tough time with Clayborn & Klug, been in the backfield right away on last two plays.
-Stanzi says the o-line is coming together, has a great attitude
-Clayborn expecting big things from the 2010 defensive line

While none of this is of the ‘breaking news’ variety, it’s a rare glimpse behind the walls of an Iowa practice, as will be the BTN’s special program next week. Having watched all of the BTN tour programs to date, it certain gets one in the mood for football; Iowa vs Eastern Illinois is just 15 days away.
