    Steele Jantz

    Is he still the guy to lead this team? I don't think I am in favor of a QB change now, but I think it warrants questioning.

    He was on fire to start the game, but that second half gave me flashbacks to last year. He needs to take what the D gives him, and stop forcing things.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    Yeah, he made some pretty dumb decisions, but that 20 yard run he had was key. He's not making as many stupid mistakes as last year, so I think he still has the edge.

    I blame the playcalling in the 2nd, not Jantz

    His interceptions were bad. Threw it right to the Iowa LB's

    Re: Steele Jantz

    Last week he didn't make any bad decisions, just one throw that was a little high. This week he made 2 horrible decisions. Hopefully he can watch the tape and not do that again. That's all that is holding him back from being a really good qb.

    He's been great for 6 out of 8 quarters, there is no question who that starting qb is.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    The 2 INTs he threw and pulling the ball out of White's hands were what got him benched last year. I'm glad we have a cupcake and a bye week to get it corrected.

    But I do believe he will get benched if he continues making throws like that. CPR has already said he won't stand turnovers.

    With that said, I agree he is still our starting QB.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    Iowa did such a better job of containing him this year. Our running game was non-existent and we had to rely heavily on our passing game. If only one of those long passes had connected with the receiver!

    ^^^THIS. The kid started 11 for 11 passing in the game. He's the one, no doubt about it.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    This was still a pretty good defense that Iowa through at us. He needs to learn from the mistakes and correct them. If he does not play better, then perhaps look for the switch. I really hope next week is the blowout we need to let everyone play some meaningful minutes.


    Friends don't let friends wear black & gold. Build a man a fire, you keep him warm for a day. Set a man on fire, you keep him warm for the rest of his life. Set a hawkeye fan on fire, you make Iowa a better place to live.

    Chris Young helped him a lot last week also though and he didn't have much of an impact in today's game.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    If he plays like he did today in the Big XII season then his leash will get pretty short. But against Western Illinois he'll be able to settle down and gain confidence with high percentage stuff and then we have a bye week. A lot can happen in three weeks before we play Tech.

    Re: Steele Jantz

    Jantz is simply not a good QB. He has not been good since he set foot on campus. Hate to say it - we do have to pull out wins despite his play. It was the same way last year. The Tulsa game was not as great as people are making it. 70% of his throws were wide receiver screen/easy passes. We saw how he looks today when he has to make throws at the BCS level.
