Name a specific atrocious call against msu John? Two horrendous and in excusable calls or rather no calls were the 300 lb nix landing on marble after a shot fake and the second was missing the shot clock violation which wasn’t even close. Can any one answer why it’s okay to review a shot clock [...]
Scott, spot on with “tv teddy”. Guy totally jobbed iowa. Iowa didn’t get many calls and most of the time it was on freaking teddy valentine. I hope Fran requests he doesn’t call any iowa games in the future because the guy single handedily kept them out of the tourney. Some absolutely horrendous calls starting [...]
Is the past 2 years a commentary on the direction of program or seeing the writing on the wall with Kirk? Seems odd you would have what will be 5 staffers leaving 2 years when I don’t think that many left in the previous 12 years.
Say what you want about star ratings being flawed. You don’t see Alabama, Ohio st, or Oklahoma developing a consistent level of success by looking for diamonds in rough. Not saying iowa can recruit to that level but they have to do better than they are doing.
I always pay more attention to the offer sheet than the star rankings. That said what I have read tells me there aren’t any players here likely to make a difference next year other than Powell and maybe Mitchell.
I will agree on all accounts. Had not had the opportunity to see Michigan play until Sunday. Man was I impressed. Nobody will beat them period if they can play anything close to that level the rest of the way including Indiana who I’ve seen play several times and thought they were the runaway favorites [...]

Add to the that coming off a disappointing football seaso to say the least, I expect CHA to really really loud this winter!

Agree and disagree. The clutch stanzi vanished in 2010 but his numbers were overall superior. I didn’t think he had an nfl arm at any point though. That said no reason he shouldn’t have gotten shot. Of course the same could have been said ruduck.
The ship just continues to take on water. For every chad greenway, bob sanders, etc… There are a two dozen tanner millers, Steve bigachs, or Greg castillos. Those guys aren’t even on the two deeps at most b10 teams. The recruiting rankings love to take a beating from those who believe great coaching outweighs the [...]

Those two schools do absolutely nothing for me. What a mistake

Amen. Can’t sell the trying to win now card again. If the media lets him off the hook with that again they flat out aren’t doing their jobs. Down 42-10 in the 4th qtr with a soon to be 4-7 team with no chance at a bowl kills that notion. In fact it just an [...]
Looking for positives Iowa beat now 9-1 Niu. Jordan lynch’s #’s look like a video game. 22 pass tds against 3 ints for 2200 yds. Oh and a meager 1300 yds rushing and another 16 tds. Iowa has 19 offensive tds as a team…exactly half of lynch’s output.
Pass rush has been a season long failure. I said this at the beginning of 2010 that where were the d line recruits? We paid the piper last year and now it’s horrendously evident the horses arent there. Next year wont be any better. Maybe 2014, maybe. One thing I’ve learned with this program though [...]
I think everyone is to some degree giving jvb a pass. Cjf was wide open on the last play. He flat out doesn’t look at the middle of the field. Teams know this now. His happy feet and unwillingness to stand in the pocket and deliver the ball and take a hit is evident. Another [...]
Man, even something as simple as uniforms got bungled. Maybe do some research before committing to ‘flashy’ jersey. I will reserve my judgment until i see it on the field but early returns aren’t too promising
