    Bill Bleil Most Underrated Coach on staff??

    What does everyone thing about Bleil?? I personally think he is the most underrated coach on our staff. As a hire I know he was one of the only Iowa boys hired, with ties anyway, I was more excited for the Herman and Burham (with son), but honestly Bleil has has done a lot with this being year 3 of this staff, I think I am the most impressed with the consistency of with that area....

    I'd need to see the ratings first to decide.

    The OLine drastically underperformed last year IMO. Bleil still has a ways to go to prove himself IMO

    Re: Bill Bleil Most Underrated Coach on staff??

    In 2009 ISU increased its run production by a solid 40-50 yards a game, as ISU ran for 2,300+ yards that season. Outside of the really elite run games (G-tech/Wisconsin last year), 2,300 yards is a pretty damn good total for the average team. I want to say that in the last 7 or so years Iowa has only approached that total once, when Shon Green had 1,800. Bliel impressed me in year 1.

    Chzik and McFarland did run a share of zone read plays as well, but had far less success. The offenses weren't exactly comparable though, but I would imagine the YPC in both seasons have been better than in 06/07/08.

    I will say I was disappointed early in the 2010 season with run production, but things got better by midseason. I'd be curious to look up the YPC as the season went on.

    With young guys specifically recruited for this system by these coaches, year 3 should be a better barometer of the run game.

    Still has a lot to prove IMO.

    Although, recruiting-wise, this is probably the deepest position group we have. Now he just has to do something with it.

    Honestly, who gives a ****. SInce when are coaches "rated"?


    Certainly there is no hunting like the hunting of man and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never really care for anything else thereafter.

    everyone on this site is soo literal, it gets really old, you get what I am asking, and by the way this was along the same lines as the initial post, pretty original.

    No. Shane Burnham is. Then Elliot. Then Messingham. Our Oline was not as good as it could have been last year. I think Bleil is a fine coach, don't get me wrong.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Everyone lauds Burnham for his recruiting and Elliot's resume speaks for himself. I'm not sure how either of them can be most underrated. Has to come from one of Messingham, Wells, Bliel, and Bray (even though Bray has been a headhunter recruiter for his past teams) probably. I'd say it's probably Messingham. He's a very good coach.

    Re: Bill Bleil Most Underrated Coach on staff??

    I think Bill has done a great job at ISU. Our O-line will continue to show improvement again this year.

    But, I'm a little biased. Bill and I grew up on farms a half mile a part outside of Kingsley.
