    Two quarterbacks in backfield long ago?

    Went to the Gridiron Iron closed practice Saturday nite and we were talking about in early earle Bruce years, we had two very good quarterbacks, one who move to a receiver position. Recalled we had a potent offense but not the names of the two quarterback involved...wondering if Vinne Cerrato was one as his name was mentioned. Anyone remember those names?

    White Shirt Vinnie is with Redskins now. I think I remember a friend saying he played receiver.

    Wayne Stanley was one of the two QBs, and maybe Luther Blue was the guy switched to WR? All I can recall about Vinnie is him being drunk off his butt one night, yell at some girl on the third floor of Storms to come down to party with him. I think he is much better at what he is doing now than he ever was at WR.

    I saw VC a few years ago at the Army game in West Point. He's still a fan and a nice guy.

    Wayne Stanley, do think was one of the quarterbacks but then the other one was moved to receiver, but did see some action throwing the ball on trick plays. Luther Blue was never a quarterback, only a great receiver.
    The name Buddie Hardeman comes up,, now thinking he was the quarterback turned receiver/quarterback.

    Anyway the point was raised about doing likewise again to ge both Bates and Arnaud in the offensive game if needed.

    Vinnie Cerrato was recruited as a quarterback out of Albert Lea High School (if memory serves) but moved to wide out after a year or so. Wayne Stanley, Buddy Hardeman and eventually John Quinn and Walter Grant served as QB

    Buddy Hardeman & Wayne Stanley were the two seniro QB's in the 1976 season. Our offense was ranked 2nd in the nation that season and we went 8-3, but did not get selected to a bowl?#?

    With Wayne & Buddy, I was rarely nervous on 3rd down; they could really move us downfield. However, neither Wayne, or Buddy ever played wide receiver. Ray Hardee and Stan Hixon were the primairy receivers.

    Vinny was an Earl Bruce recruit, but did not play QB his freshman year in '77 because JUCO Walter Grant was the starter.

    It was Wayne Stanley and Buddy Hardeman. Also had Luther Blue as a WR/KR and a stud TE named Keith Krepfle(sp?).

    Krepkle was already in the pros. He was the TE on the '71 Sun Bowl team. That team had Carlson at QB and his back-up was RB George Amundson.

    As I recall Vinnie played QB or the "student body right" plays, everyone knew he would run with the strength of the line and it always had decent yardage.

    You are right on the money, went to the media guide and got the names There were times when both Stanley and Hardeman were in the lineup, thinking Hardeman was used as a receiver/runner. Thinking in some games the ball was passed by him after taking it as the running back maybe. It was so long ago. Keith Krepfle is spelled correctly.

    The 70 team had both Amundsen and Carlson at quarterback. Occasionally Majors would put both in the game and usually a trick play resulted.

    Both moved the team well but Majors decided to move Amundsen to RB for Carlson's senior year. Amundsen became Iowa State's first 1,000 yard rusher and nobody noticed Carlson much although he did go on to the pros (St. Louis I think). The next year Amundsen moved back to quarterback.

    Before Stanley and Hardeman played George Admundsen moved to running back so Dean Carlson could be the QB.

    You are right, so it can be done again if needed or wanted to make the offense even more of a threat.
    Amundson was a great discus thrower as well as football player.

    Re: Two quarterbacks in backfield long ago?

    Vinny was at the first Independence Bowl working for ESPN. They stayed at the same hotel as I did. He seemed to be a very nice guy. Steve Levy...now that guy is a very small man (stature-wise)!

    By the way, I love reading all of the names from the 70s that played the skill positions for us...there is a reason we had some pretty damned good teams...we had some pretty damned good players!



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
