    Who really won the competition at QB?

    Without even reading between the lines it appears that CPR's comments clearly indicate Jantz won the competition outright and Tiller was not in the picture for the future.

    CPR - "Rhoads expects Tiller to remain with the team and left open the possibility that Tiller could change positions in the future."

    You wouldn't mention a position change if Tiller was in the QB picture.

    Watching the video, he answered that quickly by the way. I really don't care who the QB is. I just want to win. Go Steele!

    Re: Who really won the competition at QB?

    Agreed. Plus he came out and said that Jantz won the position outright in his post scrimmage interview and said that was only a coincidence that they got the grade reports in and found Tiller to be academically ineligible for 2011.

    Happy to hear the things I've heard tonight about the future of Cyclone football. Congrats to Jantz as it looks like his hard work has paid off.

    2 weeks!

    Re: Who really won the competition at QB?

    I think Jantz probably won it. tiller always seemed like a pretty mediocre qb to me; he is kind of fast but not fast enough to be able to make huge plays with his legs on a consistent basis, which is what you need when you don't have the best throwing accuracy and mechanics. Anyways congrats to Jantz, I'm excited to see what he can do this coming season!

    Players have had a good idea for a long time that Jantz was the starter. They didn't find out about Tiller until this week.

    Pretty sure Jantz had it wrapped up since Wednesday.

    Re: Who really won the competition at QB?

    Really? We have to question who the starter is even after the the other guy is ineligible?

    Obviously. Are you not around here much?


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    Re: Who really won the competition at QB?

    In CW's video Herman said he thought Jantz would probably been surprised if he wasn't named the starter because of how the reps we're being distributed that last week of camp. So Jantz new it was coming most likely.

    Well, the real reason is deeper. People want to know if Steele is better than what we had as the status quo, which was tiller. Steele being announced as a starter wouldve said 'yes', but obviously with the ineligibility that opens that question up again for some (though it looks like Steele was the starter before this happened, so we have our answer)

    So in other words, the question was stupid to begin with?
