Panthers begin football practices

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- The quest for respect began Monday for the UNI football team.

The Panthers have been picked to finish 4th in the Missouri Valley, the lowest pre-season prediction in seven years.

Northern Iowa opened their 2010 preparations with a 3 hour workout in the late summer heat. UNI still has 33 days to get ready before their season opener against North Dakota State.

Mark Farley is beginning his 10th season as head coach. He says it's a bit early to take much out of first practice besides figuring out if his players are in shape.
