    Steele Jantz...

    ...looked like a completely different quarterback. Poised.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    Yep, had some really good moments. Had that one sack where he went wayyyy back, and the one pass that was just a bit high and got picked, but other than that I liked most of what he showed yesterday.
    Hope our screen plays get better though if we are gonna keep using them as much as it looks like we will - just some work on blocking and we should be able to move the ball even better.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    He did look good for the most part. A couple of the sacks, he had absolutely no chance. The high throw, then pick wasn't that good of a pass. Made some good plays running also. Off to a good start!

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    I think others have said it in other threads but it looks like they have got him thinking about making a pass before just bolting for it.

    I was starting to worry that we were going to the well once too often with the wide receiver screens. I figured that either Tulsa was going to jump the play and get a pick 6 or Steele was going to pump fake and our receiver would blow past the Dback for a wide open touchdown. But I know we were just taking what the defense was giving us and I like that approach much more than what Herman was trying to do last year. It will be interesting to see how Iowa tries to defend it. I bet they try to press our receivers more and force us to throw more vertical.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    I'd say overall he looked good, not great, but good. The interception was his fault, but he did throw a real nice ball to Lenz on the TD. Showed pretty good decision making on the read option most times too.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    What looked the same about Steele though was him throwing the ball about 12" above his receiver's helmet over and over. It was so aggravating. And we were so lucky his one long pass for a touchdown wasn't picked. He threw that one off of his front @&$#ing foot again.

    But the kid showed a new poise in the pocket I hadn't seen before and he didn't try forcing throws. I honestly have to say I'd have loved to have seen him take off running a couple of times as he really had some opportunity there. But he did a nice job and it was great to see some improvement there.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    Yep, Steele had an excellent overall game and showed a ton of improvement from last year. He looked like a rookie with very little Big XII experience last year and used his legs to basically run away from everyone. Yesterday, he looked like a very poised senior quarterback and played very well.

    However, he still needs some more experience in the more detailed part of the game. Mainly he took several sacks that were basically depending on him because they were bringing pressure. He's got to see that and either check out of the play or know he has very little time and go a hot receiver. I think the coaches will show him that and expect to see even better play from his the rest of the year.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    I was ok with him taking those sacks. We did a poor job of picking up the blitz and last year Jantz would have thrown those balls up for grabs. Sack is better than interception. I would guess doing a better job with the blitz will be an emphasis this week.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    As a guy who thought Barnett gave us a better chance based on last year's performance, I though Jantz played really well. He hit the short throws he'll need to in order for this offense to work. His long ball is still really, really good. He made good decisions on the zone reads (I though Tulsa was really working to contain this all game and it still worked pretty well). A few questionable decisions on the long sacks when he should have just thrown it away, but I thought Tulsa did a good job keeping him contained on the edges - I'm not sure if he would have made it outside the tackle box to throw it into the stands. There weren't any throws that I remember where no one was within 10 yards. One int off a tipped ball. It was thrown a bit high (a few others missed high as well) but most of the time that tipped ball hits the turf. 71% completion percentage with a couple of TDs. If our WR blocking gets better, those bubble screens will start going for 7-12 yards instead of 3-7 yards. I was very impressed with Jantz's offseason improvement today, and if we can continue to improve we could surprise a lot of people this year.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    He looked much more poised and just overall more comfortable than he ever did last season. Looking forward to his continued development throughout the season. Also looked much quicker running the ball, I really liked the pace the offense played with yesterday.

    Absolutely. Except for Steele's quick throw to our tight end, we did not respond well to the blitz. That's supposed to be one of the differences in Iowa's defensive philosophy this year - they will blitz more and press the receivers more instead of just trying to keep the ball in front of them. We better be ready for that on Saturday.

    Re: Steele Jantz...

    He still needs to work on his decision making. A couple of times he was looking for e big play on 3rd down when the yardage for first down was available. But it was better than last year. If he can improve that, it could get good this year.
