    why do coaches leave starting Qbs/RBs in for the whole game?

    When getting creamed yesterday, why didnt Tiller get some snaps? What if Arob would have gotten hurt? I noticed UW ran John Clay until the end of the game. Texas had Gilbert throwing passes until the end of the game. What if one of these guys got hurt in the final meaningless minutes?

    Re: why do coaches leave starting Qbs/RBs in for the whole game?

    Being it was only the 2nd game of the year - it may have been best to get AA as many snaps and work into the system even more. Guess it could have gone either way.

    That or maybe he's not planning on going with Tiller next season and didn't see the point.

    Hard to say I guess.

    I seriously think he wanted to score a TD to end the whole, "they haven't scored a TD against Iowa in 18 quarters" b.s.

    Also, while meaningless and trivial, the last drive will give Arnaud a little bit of confidence boost, which he will need if we are to beat KSU.

    I think this is the biggest reason. I think the coaches don't want to bench Arnaud for a poor performance (and one I don't think was really his fault) against a great defense, and wanted to give him something positive for next week.

    ARob didnt play the whole 4th qtr. It is clear AA needed the work. Iowa was still playing their starters on D into late into the 4th qtr, no need to put your backup in there to face that and have him lose confidance. These guys only get 13 games a year, they should get the most out of those games they can.

    Maybe they are scared that Tiller might do ok and create a qb controversy. Remember, Tiller did have a decent game against the Cornhuskers last year.

    Remember, we were without our starting RB, and several others had the flu. What happens if AA goes down for the season, wouldn't you want somebody with a little playing time? That TD that AA threw yesterday meant nothing. If a 5th year senior needs more practice time playing when the game has long been decided something is wrong.

    Kudos to Ferentz for pulling Stanzi. They could have scored 60 points. See TCU scores 62 points and leaves their startinig QB in for the whole game. Looks to me like running up the score on TN Tech was there agenda. Trying to bolster their National Championship cause.

    Yeah.. because nothing boosts your confidence more than throwing several more INTs... and then scoring on Iowa's 3rd team defense!! Whatever.

    If Arnaud is the best we've got... then we don't have much... I'm sorry. AA is a great kid, great student, and a great representative of ISU, but he's not a great QB... not even good.

    I feel for Tiller. How bad does AA have to play for Tiller to even get a shot? 5 INTs... 6 INTs... what? And no, AA really wasn't under all that much pressure like some people want you to believe. He actually had quite a bit of time most of the day.
