    Joel Lanning

    I wonder if Joel is licking his chops thinking about next year. With a seasoned Offensive line and lazard coming in I think the offense could be salty if there is even an average QB at the helm.

    Does anybody know how well things are going for him on the scout team and if they expect him to compete for the starting job next year? Or am I just falling into the trap of thinking the back-up QB is going to be the next great thing?

    The chances that Lanning, as a redshirt freshman, is going to be head an shoulders above both Sam and Grant is extremely slim.

    I would be very surprised if Lanning plays very much. If he does play a lot it probably won't be a good sign for how the season goes.

    Excited about Lanning, but who will be calling the plays?

    Re: Joel Lanning

    My hope would be that Lanning would get real good at running the zone read and could be relied on for much needed 3-4 yard carries, ala Collin Klein or Blake Bell. The guy is solid and is a good runner. I think he could be very successful situational player next year and maybe, if his arm strength and accuracy develops, run the show later in his career.

    He'll call his own plays.

    Lanning rhymes with Manning.

    No, that would be Rohach.

    You are falling into the trap of thinking the 4th string QB is going to be the next great thing.

    If the backup is always the better than the starter then the backup of the backup of the backup must be unstoppable!

    0% chance Lanning starts a game next year.

    If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls

    I agree that chances are slim, but I'd say his chances are a lot better right now of actually playing next year than they were 2 months ago.

    I wouldn't say that. He'll probably be 3rd string, and having the 3rd String QB have to start isn't unheard of.

    After all: We are *CLAP* *CLAP* Iowa State.

    0% is wwwaaaayyyyy too black and white. Injuries are far too common in college football to say that. As an ISU fan, I'd think we'd know almost better than anyone how true that is.
