I do expect to see him get owned at times early on though. While it may be one of the more "talent based" positions, it's not like you just go out and have it figured out. The problem, for me, is that I think we will need these guys to play smart because you don't have AJ and Jake back there anymore. You can't just go leaving gaps. I could see him starting off as a situation guy and working into the starting lineup mid year or so. I'm sure he's been working and learning from other players to get a head start too. I doubt he's waiting until camp to start his learning.


    It's all snark from here on out

    The staff has specifically targeted athletes hoping they can turn them into productive linemen. Converted RBs, TEs, DE's bulking up to play inside. It's very tough to recruit Big12 caliber linemen at ISU so they are trying to get creative. I hope it works!

    I see what you did there...and I like it.

    I all reality, Iowa usually has a very good O-line so that will be a true test for Coe and Co.

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    To be honest, I'm figuring that with his inexperience, this season he's a spot player, and makes an occasional big play,out of sheer athleticism.

    Anything more is just icing on the cake.

I think people should look at this year as a development year for Coe and expect big things next year.
    Not necessarily referring to this post in particular, but I'm guessing you're a glass half empty kinda guy, huh?

    Seems like a lot of your posts point out what could go wrong. Guess I just don't see the point in constantly spreading a negative attitude about damn near everything?

    Totally agree here, if he is better than that I'll be tickled, I will have patience with him if he cont to work to improve.

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    It isn't going to really matter all that much if Coe starts or not. Rhoads himself said that it is going to be a DL by committee again this year. We will have guys running in and out a lot. In fact, the 2's might just play as many downs as the 1's.

    So who starts really isn't all that significant. Coe is going to play, and he's going to play a lot, whether he starts or not. We don't really have much choice. I hope at the very least he can just plug up the middle and allow the LBs to make plays. That would be sufficient for year one IMO.

    Re: BLOG: The evolution of Rodney Coe

    In the video, I like that he is really quick to the ball once he gets off the block. I also think his quickness will allow him to get up the field through the gaps. He seems to play pretty low to the ground. He may struggle a little when he isn't shooting a gap, but at 305 he has the size to hold his ground.

    In terms of how much an individual produces that's true, but like in years past the best four guys will start. If Coe is starting it means he's beat somebody else out and is being very productive for the first year player at the position. So if nothing else it at least means he's playing good enough to start, which is something he could be proud of and something that will surely excite Cyclone Nation.

    It's just being a realist. It's not negative. Did I not say expect big things from him next year? I guess differing opinions are a bad thing on here.

    Kind of why I prefaced my post with, "not necessarily referring to this post"...

    I think your opinion on Coe is very fair. It's just when almost every opinion you post has a negative feeling to it, it becomes a fairly irritating thing to read. I understand they're your opinions & you're entitled to them, I was just posting my opinion about your opinions.

    Carry on.
