IOWA CITY — Iowa sophomore receiver Arland Bruce says it is important not to over promise in this new era of name, image and likeness. The Iowa City NIL Club was recently introduced and it is designed to help members of the football team.

Bruce says the new club is designed to help all the players on the team and not just the stars.

The Iowa City NIL Club was announced on July 6th. Another organization established to raise money for Hawkeye athletes via name, image and likeness was announced last week. The “Swarm Collective” is open to athletes on Iowa’s football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball teams. Any athlete from those three teams who participates in the Iowa Swarm will receive the same monthly stipend.

Hawkeye coach Fran McCaffery says the goal is for Dix to be released for practice at the start of September.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Two-time IndyCar champion Josef Newgarden has been released from a Des Moines hospital and returned to his Tennessee home, where he will wait for an evaluation to determine if he can race this weekend at Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Team Penske named Santino Ferrucci as its standby driver in case Newgarden is not medically cleared to compete on the road course at Indianapolis. Newgarden collapsed in the motorhome lot Sunday at Iowa Speedway following a late crash in a race he had dominated. He was airlifted to a Des Moines hospital and held overnight for observation.
