    Thanks. Best 15 minutes I've spent all day. I'll admit that I thought Jantz was something special. He gave us some great moments. As did Barnett.

    I couldn't agree more. It makes me sick to think how good and bad SJ could be. The guy was a great athlete, there is no doubt about that, but everyone tried to make him something other than a QB before he came to ISU. He was not a good zone read guy, and the running game did not help him a lot. Maybe he never would have gotten past the stupid mistakes, but a little more consistent coaching would have probably helped. I hope Sam makes us forget who was the QB last year.

    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    Trying to manufacture a QB controversy with this thread?

    Re: Would Steele Jantz start this year if he had eligibility left?

    The better question would be: Would Jess Settles start for Hok hoops this year if he had any eligibility left?


    Utah Utes, Illinois Illini. The University of Pennsylvania thought about following this pattern by calling themselves the Pennsylvania Pencils. However, they were afraid their students would start chanting "We're No. 2"

    Also somewhat agree Clones 21's quote: I sort of hate that SJ was good vs. Iowa--it's a (needs to be) meaningless game vs. an instate program that's been OK in the past, but never great. Somehow it made him a hero.

    I think he worked his butt off and bought in, which is more of a compliment to CPR, but was also lost out there a lot, and seemed to let his mind get in the way of making some very basic throws/decisions for ANY level of college QB.

    Barnett was a perfect fit for the offense, and great attitude for the the culture that's still trying to be built for ISU football, just didn't have the arm....I'm feeling like how a Dave Mathews Band show must feel here...

    SR showed some good things last year, but will need some WR's/RB's with real speed and a line that can hold up.

    If SR can merge the best attributes of Jantz and Barnett, he'll have a productive run at Iowa State.

    Re: Would Steele Jantz start this year if he had eligibility left?

    I think CPR made a big mistake with Steel.........

    I missed this too, and now that I think of it the answer is so damn simple.
    What we should have done early on is to print little transparent hawk uniforms on a visor for him. That way he always thought he was playing the hawkeyes.

    Hell, probably could have won the BCS if we had done this.
