Am I missing something? Who is this Tommy that is constantly being referenced?
I think the past few weeks have officially given up the ghost on how worthless Iowa’s published two-deeps are. First, Colston was “inadvertently” listed ahead of Ward, and now Collins only comes off the two-deeps this week, after he’s been dismissed, not last week when he was serving a three-game suspension. As for who actually [...]
Piggy-backing on the recruiting angle: it was suggested by another frequent commenter recently that the past few years Iowa was suffering from an ill-conceived change in recruiting tactics. Namely, that after the 2006 season, with all the “fat cats” and bad peronalities/attitudes, KF adjusted too radically and basically shunned recruiting almost anyone who might be [...]
You’re not the only on with regards to Bullock, but I just don’t see where he is a positive as a “running back”. That’s not to say he doesn’t have use, just that he needs to be utilized more innovatively than he is. You can’t run the same plays for Bullock as you do for [...]
I kind of hate to do this, but what happened to Faith Ekakitie? He seems to have disappeared – along with Jaleel Johnson, but that makes more sense with Iowa’s relative depth at DT – this season and hasn’t really been mentioned since August. I ask because it was Faith that seemed to be making [...]
Since Wisconsin is the upcoming opponent, I think it bears asking why we haven’t seen much (if any) of the promised Weisman and Bullock on the field at the same time the coaches kept hinting at before the season. Wisky manages to get both White and Gordon on the field at the same, why is [...]
I’m not buying that Weisman is 100%. His arms looked rather bandaged Saturday, and he seemed to be about a step slower. This is bad, Weisman is the player who’s productivity falls off the most precipitously when he’s even a little dinged up (not his fault, just the way it is), and that looks to [...]
This part is key. Everyone is getting way too pedantic about the word “intent” in the penalty and ignoring what the rule is clearly trying to curb: dangerous play. It is clear from the NCAA examples/explanation, that the NCAA is employing a concept of implied “intent”, that certain actions are so reckless and dangerous, that [...]
Max Power commented on the blog post Ferentz radio: Only singles, standing room available for UW game 1 month, 2 weeks ago · View
To piggyback a bit on james randolph’s comments in re TEs, I think what has a lot of fans (or at least me) scratching their heads is the following: when Greg Davis arrived in spring 2012, he raved about CJF’s physicality and ability all spring and summer. Then we watched CJF disappear outside of the [...]
Max Power commented on the blog post The Quickest Slant — Probably here’s why no Daniels 1 month, 3 weeks ago · View
I can understand not playing Daniels, there are a myriad of reasons why not to play him. But, as has been noted, once his redshirt was burned for this season, why not try to work him in? This is where I think KF really suffers from tunnel vision and/or a general lack of vision. He [...]

Or maybe, if the problem persists despite a turnover of personnel, the blame lies with the one person who has been the constant. Hint: it’s not Chris White and his first name rhymes with “birk”
Max Power commented on the blog post MSU, Iowa take the deep dive into the Legends Division 2 months, 1 week ago · View
I think I’d be a lot more confident about this game if it had happened last weekend, rather than this. I think the extra week of practice/film review/general re-grouping will really help MSU offensively. I don’t expect them to come out and put up a ton of points, but with that defense they don’t need [...]
Max Power commented on the blog post Your Michigan State two deeps: Morris named B1G POW 2 months, 1 week ago · View
We all want to see more Powell, and while I think the coaching staff hasn’t used him as much as they could have, I do appreciate the focus on incorporating him into the offense. I’m betting we see him a lot more after the by week(s) when he has a bit more time to digest [...]
Serious question. If Collins really is the WLB next year, then I’m not sure I understand playing Spearman last week if he’s also at WLB. Seems kind of pointless to burn his redshirt if he’s not presumed to be an early-ish starter or at least significant contributor
“Remember the movie “Devil’s Rain,” where Ernest Borgnine turned into the devil and made it rain devil’s rain and melted John Travolta’s eyeless, zombie face?”
What are, questions no one has ever asked in the history of everything?
I keed, I keed. But that is an amazing obscure reference.

About Powell, if KF/the other coaches aren’t going to use him, why did they burn his redshirt in the first game? I’m going to go ahead and assume that he didn’t “know” the playbook during that week’s practice then suddenly forget it come Saturday. The coaches knew what they were getting out of him, yet [...]

In the entirety of the multiverse, there is not a single universe that exists where this ISU team is a “very good” football team.

That was a really long and detailed comment . . . that went absolutely nowhere. My point was this: assuming, arguendo, that Shumpert does do all the other things – practice, blocking, route-running, being a great teammate – better than any other WR on the team, that still does not make him the “best” WR [...]
