    Starting QB Poll

    Ok, Im sure Im going to catch some crap for the options I give in the poll, but I did it this way for a few reasons..

    1. I intentionally left off the option of "I just want whoever is best to start"
    Yeah, I do too. So do 95% of cyclone fans. 95% of us have absolutely no bias and really don't care who plays as long as the teams plays well and wins.

    2. I, like many others, am just curious to find out what cyclone fanatic thinks about the QB race. I for one have been back and forth constantly who I think should be the starter and its getting very close to that time when CPR and staff have to make the decision.

    3. I think both QBs will play a significant amount of time in the first game.

    **Vote multiple times**


    Again, this has nothing to do with "trusting the staff" etc. Your vote will not be public, so just give your opinion!

    I'm the direct opposite. I feel like CPR likes Jantz's potential and is trying to find every reason to name him the starter...Jantz's upside is much higher than JB's, IMO. However, for the betterment of longevity, Id rather JB start as he will probably be the guy for the next two years. Obviously, Sam Richardson is the X factor in all of this...as I have never seen the kid play yet, Im eliminating him from my opinions.

    I'm afraid I ended up voting this way. The latter part influenced by which side of the perpetual argument was more annoying. Some of the Jantz mafia are clearly the worst. You know who you are.

    If Jantz has his boneheaded plays cleared up we might be in fair shape for the season.

    Re: Starting QB Poll

    So if you want someone different that who you think will start does that mean CPR made the wrong choice?

    Re: Starting QB Poll

    I think Steele will start. If they're even in practice, Barnett is easier to prepare for and will be more effective coming off of the bench. I also think CPR is going to have an ol' ball coach-like trigger finger this year.

    Hey, at least our polls here even give more than 100%!

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    Not in the least. I can want my kid to start in her soccer league but that doesn't mean that the coach made the wrong choice in starting a player who is playing better.

    Why would someone have an emotional attachment to a college QB though?

    Re: Starting QB Poll

    thats a tough one to answer 3truefans (original comment)

    i don't really want to post this, but in some instances, coaches aren't always right. troy davis riding pine comes to mind. or that northern illinois QB that played against us, only to be benched and the new QB finish an 11-0 season. It doesn't necessarily mean the fans knew the whole time.. but rather, they just happened to be right.
