DiBona: I called them and we talked about the Penn State game and how that was a big game, and then we talked about my season. Then I said, "Hey Coach, I've got something to tell you," and said, "I'm coming to Iowa."
Q: Was that Coach O'Keefe?
DiBona: Yeah, I said that to Coach O'Keefe. He told me congratulations and sounded real excited about it.
