Let’s just say TE C.J. Fiedorowicz’s tattoo is Pat Angerer-esque. It celebrates everything that is America. The American flag, eagles and freedom.
He also said stuff and so did some other players after Sunday’s open scrimmage at Valley Stadium in West Des Moines.
OL Andrew Donnal is coming off ACL surgery. Sunday was his first day as backup left tackle. He’d been playing guard before and, if he wins a starting spot, it will be as a guard.
You’re going to have to crank this one up. The wind pretty much sucked the wind (sad trombone) out of his interview. From what I can tell, Sokol has liked his spring so far. Apologize for this. Sunday wasn’t optimal weather. I asked about zone read. It didn’t really go anywhere.
Bullock talks about the zone read. Said it was introduced this spring. He also talks about the QBs and believes they’ve been pretty even. Bullock is doing some slot and some outside receiver. Inside runs weren’t called for him. The scrimmage was scripted.
He looked quicker and he hopes he’s quicker than he was pre-ACL surgery. He sounded like he was an emergency RB last season. Zone read is something all the RBs and QBs seem to like. Canzeri also is sliding into the WR area.
Who’s taller, you or Riley McCarron (walk-on WR)? Humorous answer forthcoming.
Cooper is getting better along with the rest of the DL. He knows it’s the position group that is in the crosshairs. They understand it all starts up front and they all need to get better.
CJF talks about the “B back,” sort of the motion guy, sort of the fullback, sort of the H back. Iowa didn’t show it much Sunday. CJF is set at the “Y,” which makes Iowa’s initial depth chart that called the “move” TE a “Y back” a typo. CJF and Ray Hamilton are the Ys; Jake Duzey and Henry Krieger Coble are the “Bs.”
CJF doesn’t have a favorite QB yet.
And hey, check the tattoo.
