    Re: Brock Dagel to miss the remainder of the season

    Another guy is missing if you want to go back a year earlier. Bob Graham suffered a career ending knee injury in the spring of 2013. He played in all 13 games as a sophomore and would have been a...

    Re: Gardenhire era at an end in Minnesota

    If Gardy had not clashed with Garza and Lohse to the point that they were driven off, the Twins starting pitching would not have been so dismal over the past several years. I'm not sure if it's fair...

    Re: Gardenhire era at an end in Minnesota

    You nailed it all in this post. The early wave of young players that made it big for the Twins under Gardy all bonded in the minors together and had a swagger to them that showed on and off the...

    Re: Wendal Taiese

    The problem here is that there was never a redshirt to save in the first place. Taise was a class of 2011 recruit out of high school so this makes him a 2 to play 2 guy with the 5 year clock. ...

    Re: Caleb Shudak

    Shudak would practice his accuracy by kicking from the end zone pylons. After achieving considerable success attempting the end zone angle kicks, any extra point or hash mark FG try seemed like a...

    Re: running game??

    One just needs the ability to count to 6 to understand why the option to the short side is almost always a better play call than the option to the wide side. With the one back set, the offense is...

    Re: LOL

    Farniok will be big shoes to fill. The offense has yet to prove that it can function without him. Hopefully an adequate replacement can be developed during spring practice and fall camp.

    Re: 3rd down run with lead

    2nd half passing stats were 11 completions out of 20 attempts. Choosing to throw the ball simply doesn't guarantee a first down or even a completion for that matter.

    Re: Camp Insider: Is Morrissey a game-changer?

    Randy Moss, even in his prime, was often saddled with the same criticism. I'd take him on my team any day without reservations. What gets forgotten is that even when he appeared to be going half...

    Re: Column: Don't sleep on Sam

    Mangino wasn't hired to make decisions based on what guys did in high school or even last year for that matter. It's a fresh start for all of the QB's and the one who is most productive in the new...

    Re: Loth is done

    It's one of the unfortunate downside to redshirting while healthy as a freshman. If you lose one of the next 4 years to an injury, you only have 3 years of playing time due to the 5 year clock. If...

    Re: Loth is done

    He's already used his redshirt year. One additional year lost to a medical issue doesn't buy you a medical hardship for a 6th year of eligibility - you have to lose 2 years to injuries to have a...

    Re: Des Moines bids to host Mens NCAA tourney games

    The hotel issue is not just about having enough available rooms in the area. Each team has to have a separate hotel that includes a full service restaurant among other criteria. Omaha is in good...

    Re: Another commitment

    I'm curious as to the story behind the Oregon State offer. They don't recruit anywhere in the Midwest and nobody on their staff appears to have any ties to Iowa or the Midwest. Did he camp there or...
  15. Re: Terry Ayeni tears ACL; 2 other JUCO's not yet in Ames

    If an interior DL only focuses on crashing a gap, most offenses can easily exploit that tendency. The DT's/NT's also have to deal with blocks coming from either direction, double teams, traps,...
  16. Re: Terry Ayeni tears ACL; 2 other JUCO's not yet in Ames

    Rhoads's past comments on the subject are worth remembering - the further away that you line up to the ball, the easier it is to contribute at a younger age.

    Thus positions such as center,...

    Re: Tsalmpouris: Rare 7-footer at Iowa State

    I believe that the very first was Tom O'Conner who was a Juco transfer for Maury John in the '72-'73 season. He was a legitimate 7' in height with a solid build - probably around 250 lbs. The...

    Re: New foreign commit - Giorgos Tsalmpouris

    The trade off is that some of the post players who are able to push him around might not be able to match up very well with him on the perimeter. I'm not counting on him going off LaFester style on...
