    Re: EXTRA POINTS: Pass game potential, more notes

    “I think there is unlimited potential with what David can become. Your first inclination is that he’s going to get so big he’s going to be a tackle but he’s got enough athleticism that he’s going to be able to stay at end the whole time. It doesn’t matter if he gets to 290. He’s going to be able to stay as a defensive end. He’s still just a young football player and I don’t mean that in the sense that he’s just a true freshman here still going into his sophomore year. He hasn’t played that much football overall, not playing much in high school. He’s still learning the game. He’s still learning the level of aggression that you need to play with, especially on the defensive line to be successful. As he starts to acquire that, he can really become into a fine defensive lineman in this program.”
    Wow. Just...wow.

    Of course, the rest of the paragraph is CPR saying that Irving is really, really green--but I'm good with that.

    He's should be an All-American and huge name for ISU football

    CPR and his staff seem to be doing an incredible job of identifying and landing those undiscovered, overlooked nuggets, from Klein and Knott to Irving, a couple of his classmates, and a couple of the guys in this most recent signing class.

    I'm happy with that!

    Absolutely. But his potential is....Wow! I'm excited about that too.

    Re: EXTRA POINTS: Pass game potential, more notes

    I'm worried Irving won't really come into his own until his Senior year and then he will be gone too quickly. I want at least 2 years of domination from the big guy.

    Sigh. Would you rather he "came into his own" after he left ISU--as Reggie Hayward did?

    He's already ahead of Reggie's curve.

    Re: EXTRA POINTS: Pass game potential, more notes

    So is the reason we always see pictures of Barnett and never see pictures of Jantz and always see quotes from Barnett but never see quotes from Jantz because Jantz has already lost out, because only Barnett gives interviews, or because of something else?

    Perhaps the reason is that you haven't been looking or listening in the right place?

    Especially since CPR said Tuesday that he wouldn't decide before the Fall...

    I'm well aware of what CPR said, friend.

    Perhaps Cyclone Fanatic is the wrong place to look for such information.

    no he is not. Reggie was on the field a bunch his freshmen year, much much more than the little exposure to live action that Irving had. IMO, we should redshirt him. He obviously needs that extra year from lack of overall football experience.

    I wondered this exact same thing after reading this story

    All I want to know is who is doing better: Jantz or Barnett. So curious.

    Reggie also played on a 1-10 team. There was no one in front of him on the depth chart.

    You're reading into things. Steele has been on our front page plenty of times. Last Saturday Steele wasn't available to interview. Today I was interviewing Jared and Steele was gone by the time I got done. Simple as that. Believe what you want though.
