    preseason accuracy

    Hope this hasn't been posted yet, but it never ceases to amaze me how little some preview writers actually look into teams.

    What do you see wrong with this one (it should be glaring)

    C-c-c-c-c-c-c-c-coker pace.

    What the hell is nationalchamps.net, anyways? This site looks like it was built by an 8th grader and optimized for viewing in Netscape.

    If this is so, there's going to be a ton of disappointed hawk fans based on how bad of a player hawk fans thought Hill was while he was committed to ISU.

    Barkley is a good player. He really may be a good back in their offense.

    But he is much more suited to the type of back that iowa uses than the types of backs that we have used here with this offense.

    I do hope that if he is successful, that people on here remember that he is a better fit there football wise than he was here.

    I agree with you completely. I don't think Barkley Hill is anything special, but you don't really need to be at Iowa to be succesful IMO. Adam Robinson was not a great running back by any means, but in Iowa's system, he was solid. He ran hard, didn't make mistakes, and just got the job done. Barkley Hill could do the same.

    BUT... if Barkley Hill is their starter this year, they are in trouble IMO. I still think it's going to be Greg Garmon. Nobody really thinks Garmon is going to miss any playing time due to his marijuana charge, do they? Some Iowa fans seem to think he will, but KF has never proven to me that he will do anything to Garmon for this.

    Re: preseason accuracy

    I'm guessing that this page was made before Coker announced he was transferring. At the very least, it appears that this is more a placeholder page than an actual preview.

    * DEPTH CHARTS were only designed as a simplistic gauge for listing players that departed and players that received the most playing experience (consistent starters). NationalChamps.net recognizes the importance of missing personnel data not listed such as redshirts, transfers, injuries, incoming recruits, back ups and alternates. Their coverage will begin with our full 2012 Preseason Preview due out this coming spring.
