    Right, because great players for Iowa never get smack talk from ISU fans.

    KO is a beast. Will be interesting to see how he does this season in the limelight.

    According to NFL anaysts, could be our best NFL prospect since George Amundson in 1973.

    I love this picture. KO makes Sam Acho a DE from Texas look like a little kid despite the fact that Acho is 6'3" and 260 pounds.

    Love it. Can't wait to see Shontrelle bursting through the holes that KO is going to open up.

    Re: The Incredible KO

    Cyclones.com also had a great interview posted with KO. Especially about Oni being his cousin and they didn't even know it until Oni was on campus.

    If I were like the trolls that find their way over here from HN, I would pause to make a remark about that statement. BUT

    1. I'm not like that.
    2. KO is a terrific player, he would easily start on our OL (not at LT, but somewhere)
    3. It'd be too easy .

    He wouldn't start for Iowa at LT. Not National Championship contenders Iowa. Everyone on their team is better than any ISU player. They are all locks to be first round picks. Late first round talent like KO aren't good enough to start for Iowa. He probably wouldn't even be on the depth chart.

    **** off. Go back to your hawk board. Riley Reiff is a very good player, potentially a future first rounder, but he would start at RT than move to LT when KO graduated if they were on the same team.

    Reiff has already been projected as a first-round pick. Whereas didn't KO spend some time at guard last year? From what I've seen, and considering his size, he's seems like more of a road grader than pass pro specialist. That's not to say he's a bad pass blocker, just that his strength is in run blocking. Reiff is the other way around. And unless the QB is left-handed, the guy who's better at pass pro goes on the left side.

    Where did I say anywhere that Iowa is a national title contender? Where did I say that every ISU player is beneath the Hawk at the same position? Or any of the rest of that garbage?

    I'd appreciate if you didn't paint me with the broadest brush that you can find.
