    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?

    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.
