The term "Hawkeye" is a reference to an Indian warrior named Black Hawk, or Black Sparrow Hawk. In 1833, James Edwards, a newspaperman from Burlington, Iowa selected the nickname to honor the memory of Black Hawk. James Edwards lived in the town of Burlington. Edwards called his newspapers "Hawk Eye" and in 1838 the Officials of the territory of Iowa accepted the nickname. The University of Iowa adopted the nickname for its athletic teams, but uses a logo of a bird instead. The Hawkeyes opened the 1972 CWS against #1-ranked Arizona State, who entered the game with an incredible record of 60 wins and only 4 losses. But Iowa, a huge underdog, outhit the Sun Devils 8-3 only to lose, 2-1. Iowa had the tying run thrown out at the plate in the 9th inning, and left another runner at third as the final out was made.
