    Better QB play last night

    During the high school games.

    Jantz makes Joel Lanning and Kyle Starcevic (sp?) look like heisman candidates. Heck, even the back-up QB for SE Polk came in the game and could hit his targets.

    15/29 for 133 yards today...those are middle school numbers.

    Re: Better QB play last night

    Im going to go out on a limb here and say the Texas defense is a little bit more stout than Ankeny and SEP.

    Stupid thread.

    Jantz plays poorly under pressure. Texas knew this and they pressured him. And we didn't adjust our playcalling to make up for it.

    It's different levels of football. You just can't compare like that. This is a really, really stupid thread. Even dumber than a lot of threads we see on here.

    Obviously the premise was over your head.

    We have high schoolers (no **** it's a different playing level) who are more fundamentally sound, then our 2nd year starter. These are 5 yard hot routes consistently over thrown and zone reads being read wrong.

    Texas is not a good defensive team and we made them look stellar.

    You're funny. We should get their running back too. Actually get their OC while we're at it.

    We need a two headed qb. When SJ is off, JB needs to be given a chance. Seven points is "turrible". JB has won several more B12 games and SJ is the master of non conf.

    Our receivers do nothing to help the QB/offense. Proof is we have a different guy every week be the "top receiver".

    Agreed... Passing game is pathetic and it can not be blamed on just one position group. Just not much offensive talent compared to our big 12 counterparts.

    The premise isn't over my head, more correctly my point is over your head. You literally started a thread saying that Jantz put up middle school numbers. Does that mean that a middle school quarterback would put up those same numbers in the Big 12? Obviously Jantz wasn't great today, but you can't possibly say that two high school quarterbacks are better because they played better against a high school defense than Jantz did against a defense loaded with potential NFL players.

    Texas defense ranks third to last in the Big12 giving up 32 points per game. They held us to 7..

    I dont think anyone would argue that our offense sucks but what point are you trying to make by saying some Iowa HS Quarterbacks put up good numbers against HS defenses?

    If Jantz, Barnett, Richardson, Rohach, Bueker, or even Ryan Gent went and played QB last night for either of those teams I bet they'd put up good numbers too. Doesn't make them good Big 12 QBs.

    It hurts when Lenz is out. I realize he's not great but he's the best WR we've got. That injury has been significant this season.

    When your top receiver catches 3 for 20 yards, NOT GOOD.

    Re: Better QB play last night

    When the QB only completes 15 passes with an avg of 4 yards/catch, it is pretty tough to have a "top receiver"
