    Espn Thinks Jantz is the way to go...

    Video: Hope & Concern -- Iowa State - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Not so many props to ISU in this besides Money and Horne. Not to far off base exept he made our backs sound sub par for the Big12

    Re: Espn Thinks Jantz is the way to go...

    I would agree with him on that. None of our running back have proven anything. As fans we have seen what they are capable of but neither back has had enough carries to be considered even average.

    I am one that believes Shontelle will surprise much of the Big 12 though.

    You mean David Ubben thinks Jantz is the way to go. Everyone else with ESPN have probably never heard of him.

    Unless ESPN has scouts at our practices, their opinion on the topic is no more valid than mine.

    Udden has the look, stage presentation, and savvy of a 14 year old on his first summer job.

    Re: Espn Thinks Jantz is the way to go...

    To anyone outside the program, the appearance is Jantz would be the guy just because of the simple fact that we brought him in from a JC.

    That said, still think Tiller will start against UNI.

    Ubben is so much better than his predecessor at giving fair treatment to ISU that I don't care about any peripherals.

    Jantz is they way to go if they want a QB who can pass the ball well.

    Re: Espn Thinks Jantz is the way to go...

    This has been discussed before, but if you think about it there is no way in hell the staff would offer Jantz if they didnt think he was going to be the starter. Pointless to bring in a juco guy to play QB right now unless there was a very high probablity in the coaches mind that he would win the job.

    Personally I think it's his to lose because I think the staff has to be looking at it that way. No other reason to bring him in.

    I don't care who starts, just want the guy who gives us the best chance to win.

    They aren't going to just give it to him. He has to earn in. That being said, they are doing everything they can to put him in the position to win it.

    I agree with you. I don't think they offer him unless they believe he's the future here. That being said. I don't think this staff going to put someone in there to play if we have a better option. I know some people feel this is not true, but it seems to me this staff puts our best option to win on the field.

    This. The staff brought Jantz in because they thought he could be our best option to win.

    They aren't going to play if it turns out that he's not.

    All I want out of this QB competition is a clear #1 by the end of 2-A-Days. None of this "using actual games as auditions" crap.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Espn Thinks Jantz is the way to go...

    Tiller played a few games last year as AA's replacement when he got hurt. Maybe the staff brought in Jantz as more of an insurance policy in case Tiller (another running QB) got banged up.

    Not saying that is the case, just saying it is a possibility and doesn't necessarily mean that Jantz will be THE guy v UNI.

    I hear what you're saying,,,,,but I think we will see Tiller for UNI at the start. I think Rhoads is going to "work Jantz in". I think most people believe Jantz will be the eventual QB.

    Coach Rhoads is big on team attitude and loyalty. He is going to make sure Tiller does not feel slighted. Additionally, (and no small matter) it is a long season. Unrealistic to think that ONE ISU QB will play the entire season without injury.

    Couldn't agree more, auditions are not meant for games. Hopefully we learned from this with Bates/Arnaud, Flynn/Meyer, etc.
