    I guess when you throw out the most important variable that disproves your point, you can really land the argument. I mean other than that gun thing, Mrs. Lincoln was a big fan of the play that night. :) Stanley won the games he should and lost the games he should. Your stats show me that...

    We had a budding NBA star on the roster last year and couldn’t win a tourney game

    For the posters that don't think Nebraska is a rival, you are delusional. I will entertain the debate of whether Wisky or Nebbie is bigger rival. I will note that the conference did not think the Wisky rivalry was so sacrosanct as it did not schedule it for a few years. Take that for what it...

    Its a matter of perspective. Here is a three year starter who averaged a 9-4 record in the second toughest conference in the country. Let's look at any QB at Iowa or the teams we play regularly. Who has "figured it out" in recent times? Beatherd is probably the closest thing at Iowa. He...

    O-Line Update

    Goodson was a very good back and it looks like he has a real shot at making the Packers 53 or at least practice squad. But, as has been said on here before, his style may not have been the best fit for Iowa's scheme, especially with a young OL. I am excited with the more downhill, one-cut...

    Man, the criticalness here astounds. Stanley is a three year starter, wins 10 games a year and gets drafted to play in the NFL, yet he "never quite figured it out"? Figured what out? How to be one of the 5 best QBs in the country? Did Lindy never figure out how to have longer arms? Did Bob...

    O-Line Update

    Boy, from what I am reading and hearing, Colby is a natural tackle and has a good chance at the next level. He played guard last year out of necessity. But, he has the size and feet to be a tackle. If things go to chalk this season, I suspect either Proctor or Colby will have to move inside...

    I thought I read it was medical, which may be a bit different than injury. Anyway, he was in street clothes for the scrimmage. Let's hope he gets back. We need depth.

    Let's not leave out that KF owns our three biggest rivals. Owns them. Like three broken retrievers bereft of life or spirit. Look, set aside championships for a moment. Only 1 team ends the season truly happy. Even in seasons Iowa finished in the Top 10, people on boards like this spent...

    O-Line Update

    Agree with Fry about this line being an upgrade. And, it looks like all of them are sitting well above their listed weight at the beginning of camp. Beyond Jones, the other 4 guys are now all north of 310. Center: I don’t think there will be as much drop off from Lindy as people think. That...

    I am by no means a Petras fan boy, but I do believe he has better football in him than he has shown. He has a strong arm, is a great leader, and is smart. He has not demonstrated great accuracy, but that is something than can be improved with hard work. He has made the rounds this summer and...

    I don't think it is overrated. And, we obviously had the greatest line ever in 2002. There were some great lines during the Shonn Greene era. 2015 was salty. Last year proves the point. We had one of the greatest collegiate centers in a generation, but the other pieces were not good enough...

    Regarding this well-worn topic: Yawn. I would find a meme of a donkey being flogged, but its not even worth that.

    Agreed. Neither Petras nor BF are good enough to consistently perform when off schedule and required to do something out of the ordinary. But, both have proven they can be serviceable when the game plan is working. Again, OL is the key. We have good enough pieces around Petras and the OL to...

    Open practice

    Let's not forget our DL is one of the better DL in the conference. Even if there were some struggles, that is understandable. Offenses always lag behind the D in camp. Steel sharpens steel. The OL will get better given who they butt heads with everyday in practice.

    Iowa's offense was bad last year. No doubt. But, if we are debating completion percentages, the chart above shows that Petras is right in there with a typical KF QB. We have beat this horse to death. Petras looked serviceable during the latter half of the COVID year. We were all pretty...
