I mean, where do you even start with this team?. They just look so disjointed, lost, and passive. Say what you will about the officiating and MSU’s hand checking/grabbing, etc., but ultimately Iowa has so many deficiencies right now that wasn’t the biggest factor, even though infuriating. Scott, recently Greg Pop said, “Sometimes in timeouts [...]
I think it’s still too bad he doesn’t get a shot at QB; an effective arm with a real knack for the read-option offense. Especially with Iowa wanting to move more towards the uptempo, quick passing game; he has plenty enough velocity and accuracy to succeed in that offense, whilst adding a read-option wrinkle and [...]
Aaron White, where art thou? His chronic disappearing act needs to stop immediately. On the whole the Hawks need to get back to the basics. All the tangibles are still there but the mental discipline and effort at times is really concerning. Oglesby, Gessell, and Olaseni appear to me as the only guys playing with [...]
I can’t comment on others, but from my perspective it’s less that “Fran is a genius”, but more Fran just does what we as fan base can blatantly see. And you’re right, Apples and Oranges. I think the fanbase just sees us do the dumb 2 yard out route on 3rd and 8 and continuously [...]
First, Scott props on the headline; you just need to roam IC and sell T-shirts for $20 a pop. Secondly, agree with the sentiments from James, maybe not the wording, but feelings. Fran is scratching where it itches and has proven to be an effective in game strategist/decision maker. Franimal uses the pieces he has [...]
Scott, now I’m convinced we have a saboteur in the Iowa Athletics Dept from Badgerland! Remember when Iowa basketball was pumping in “Jump Around” and now having pretty much just Red and White pom poms show up, conspiracy I say! I agree with you guys, these promotional/marketing gaffes are an absolute turnoff and obviously these [...]
Agreed, I think Iowa leaned too heavily on their track record of developing mediocre recruits into NFL caliber players. And honestly this notion is SO tired and PLAYED OUT. Bob Sanders and Dallas Clark and Robert Gallery are collecting dust. At the end of the day you still need some raw materials to work with. [...]
Jermelle was unreal, as was Shonne. However, I think you’re forgetting an Iowa back that may eclipse them all.. PakiBOMB.. Speaking of comparing players, how would you compare the speed/electricity between Timmy D and Damond Powell? I was about in middle school when Dwight went H.A.M on the Big Ten, so my memory might [...]
Marc, great analysis on the RBs. A friend of mine and I were debating Iowa RBs and best fits; would you rather take Coker or Weisman? He likes Weisman for his leg drive, but I liked Coker for his sheer bruteness. Who ya got? Also, is the Coker/Weisman 240ish pound back the “best fit” for [...]
I’m quite sure I never insinuated that he was. I was just saying that he could have developed into a solid true dual threat QB, something Iowa hasn’t had for quite sometime. Rudock still has a ton to prove as a QB IMO, but has played well so far. Especially since Iowa is bent on [...]
Tim Tebow is a mythical creature that doesn’t even exist outside of ESPN. Derby looks like he can actually play the QB position and not be a complete liability. Too bad he didn’t stay since Gerg is such an incredible developer of QBs..
Wait, Iowa losing a talented player yet again.. shocking! I watched that game and even though Derby didn’t set the world on fire, he looked pretty natural throwing the ball and completed several short and intermediate routes.. something Iowa, let’s say, “struggled” with last year. I hope he does well and good for him to [...]

In the voice of Chris Traeger (Parks and Rec), “Literally, the worst coach, in the Big Ten.” Seriously, this was a disaster hire for the Illini. He’s the Zooker, except without any comedic value. I don’t think he will ever recover from the Penn State PR disaster, tobacco incident, or oh yea, the on field [...]

I think Shonn Greene was also from Sicklerville IIRC. Also, no Leshun? C’mon Mike!
I like Joe Cannon’s (NW) hometown – Oconomowoc, WI. Say that 10 times fast.
On the note of being undervalued, I think we are truly gonna miss this guy at CB this year: http://www.jsonline.com/sports/packers/future-arrives-early-for-packers-micah-hyde-b9976770z1-219872001.html
