    I don't get the comment that Jantz has a higher ceiling. Barnett was only a redshirt freshman last year and has a lot of room to grow and improve.

    Higher ceiling this year. Jantz is a play maker. Barnett controls a game. If I wanted a QB that controled a game I would want a Pro I offense. I don't want that. A spread is for play makers. I know eventually Barnett will be a play maker, but not right now.

    Hey Chris someone dropped out of our 12+ group going to Indy this year so we have an extra ticket available. Want to go? I'm driving and I'll pick you up. WARNING: There will be Hawkeye fans.

    Man I'd love to do that but just can't this weekend. I'm down in Clarinda right now and have family plans all weekend long. Rain check! That'd be freaking awesome!

    I agree with Blum about expansion. A 10-team with round-robin "feels" more like a conference.

    If there's a move to get to 12 (or perhaps beyond) has to be home-run material.

    Physically Jantz is more athletic than Barnett, that's probably the ceiling comment. His ability to make plays (or destroy them) is crazy.
