King and Kroul cap incredible careers

by Bryan Goettel

TAMPA, FL (KWWL) - It shouldn't be considered just a coincidence that Mitch King and Matt Kroul's uniform numbers -- when added together -- equal one hundred. Because no two guys epitomized giving 100 percent for the Hawkeyes over the last four years quite like King and Kroul.  

The MK2 era came to an end Thursday in Tampa. For Kroul, it was his school-record 50th straight start. King missed only one of those games. In other words, over the last four years, when you saw one on the defensive line, chances are, you saw the other. Both guys are looking at bright futures at the next level, yet both guys said it was hard taking off the black and gold for the last time knowing it likely meant the last time playing alongside one another.
