It was not long after daybreak and Galen Engstrom, the town maintenance chief--actually its entire maintenance department--was up on the water tower holding a video camera instead of a wrench. As he could see from his perch, other people were out early too, all across town. Maury and Ada Nissen were plopped in their lawn chairs on Main Street along with their toy poodle Mitzie. And 80-year-old Norma Long had ventured from her house for the first time since she broke her hip eight weeks earlier.

Between cheeseburger jokes Thursday morning, George Foreman spelled out his plan to defeat Evander Holyfield and become, at 43, a champion again. He said Holyfield is an instinctive fighter, thoroughly predictable. He said he does not believe that the champion, as everyone else seems to believe, will fight him from long range and try to burn up Foreman's legs in the early rounds. "He won't do that," Foreman predicted.

A damp fog hung in the freezing air much of the week. Steam billowed from the tops of buildings. Except for patches of white at the edge of the Iowa River, the color scheme was an unending gray. Still, no one in this university town of about 60,000 was complaining. With a few days respite from the harsh Midwestern winter, attention was focused on Christmas shopping, mid-term examinations and the exploits of the University of Iowa football, basketball and wrestling teams.

There comes a time in a program's life when it has to put down that drink and get out on the dance floor. Iowa, they're playing your song. We know "aw-shucks" Iowans don't like this kind of pressure, but No. 1 Ohio State is making a Buckeye beeline toward town for one of the most important games in the history of the Hawkeye haystack. They've even remodeled for the occasion -- a two-year, $88-million restoration of Kinnick Stadium now complete.

Something is happening here. It is a gathering storm. Soon, it will be raining basketballs onto the plains of Eastern Iowa. Farmers and families will rejoice. Not for saved crops but for salvaged pride. Iowa pride. For at last, their women's basketball team--their undefeated Hawkeyes--are No. 1. And that makes them all No. 1. All of which makes C. Vivian Stringer, 39, the No. 1 prophet of basketball rejuvenation. She said it would happen like this.
