    funny typo in one of the captions: "Iowa State QB Austen Arnaud has the most experience of the candidates for the starting job."

    Re: ESPN Blog: ISU Faces Tough Call w/ QB

    Not exactly an accurate article by our friends at ESPN. From everything that I heard Tiller had an injured elbow not sholder as stated in the article. Also Arnaud is pictured with a caption saying that he has the most experience of the candidates for the starting QB. While I guess this is true since AA was a three year starter I'm pretty sure that his eligibility is spent.

    Typical


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    They fixed the picture caption, but still are talking about Tiller's injury as a shoulder.

    Not surprising. Just kind of sad

    Re: ESPN Blog: ISU Faces Tough Call w/ QB

    The article does say what I have been thinking and that is that Jantz is ahead of Tiller physically so given a summer of learning the offense and working with the receivers I expect Jantz to be the starter.

    Does it matter? Tiller has an injury in his throwing arm and it's affecting his game play. The overall message of the article is accurate.

    Re: ESPN Blog: ISU Faces Tough Call w/ QB

    On the sideline during the spring game, Tiller was putting his right arm on some equipment boxes that were about shoulder height, and trying to stretch out his throwing shoulder. This continued during first hour (I left at 3pm) while he was on sideline. Pretty sure he has a shoulder issue. He may also have an elbow issue too, but the exercises appeared to be for his shoulder.

    Tiller must be faking it because he knows how good Jantz is and wants to be able to say he only lost it because of injury.

    I read an article today on smartfootball.com and it inspired me to write my take on the situation:
