No. How silly. Don't you know Kirk had Brian poison Kaleb so he couldn't play.I saw in another thread on this site that he may have had a stomach bug that is apparently going around. I have no idea if that is the case or not but given that he wasn't on the injury report and nothing was mentioned, that is a plausible explanation.
It probably makes more sense to the people that actually know the players and their behaviors.If he’s that sick shouldn’t have made the trip. Nobody ever knows about the methodology of the Iowa system. There is a Kirk’s doghouse, outhouse, portal station or what ever you want to call it. It never makes sense
You’re a pos for talking about it on a message board. Unless you’re actively trying to help Kaleb Johnson with his situation there’s no reason you should be bringing it up on a message board.i was wondering the same thing during the game like I’m sure most were. I tried finding something stating the reason he was out but couldn’t find anything. I assume Kirk was asked about it post game but haven’t had the time to listen to it yet.
It looked like an intentional strategy to wait till the 4th to really unleash him. They had Williams soften them up all game then when all it took was a crease for KJ to burst through it's ball game. Williams isn't scoring on that same play KJ did. Especially not at that point in the 4th when he's been beat up and tired. Ole BF may have been playing a little chess with how he was using his RBs. Feather in BFs capI don't think our staff beleives KJ gives us our best chance back there because of his running style. He is more of a strider and doesn't explode to the line like Williams and Patterson. I like that Iowa has kept him fresh and also, let the line develop more so when they do use him, he's more successful. I have almost 0 doubt that Williams and Patterson have beat him out (again, with this line currently made up of what it is)

My guess is one moves on after this season, only 1 rock and everyone wants to be a featured back. My guess is it's Kaleb Johnson based on how this season has unfolded.Hard to ignore Johnson's contributions after this weekend or ignore his first season.
But, I'm starting to think Williams may quietly be the offensive MVP this season. Certainly the most consistent performer over the season. Not saying he's "better" than Johnson...mostly because he's been able to escape the injuries. 668 yards now on ~140 carries. 4.8 yards per carry is pretty respectable, considering the fact that he's been facing brick walls of extra beef on the line for an offense with severe passing woes. An uncomplaining (as far as I know) workhorse who's responsible for some very critical moments for the Hawkeye offense.
I can't find anything I don't like about this stable of Iowa runningbacks. If I were the GM and this was a pro team, I'd have zero second thoughts about re-signing any and all of them.
Agree... They all have 2 plus yrs don't they? Anyone have a preference? It'll be interesting how it shakes out next yr with that position cause I agree they could possibly lose 2 out of those 3 depending how the dominos go.It's going to be hard to keep Williams, Patterson and Johnson together for another year.
