    Bates or Arnaud?
    After this game, I think it's still close.

    Re: Bates or Arnaud?

    Arnaud next week, Bates longterm. No disrespect to AA, that's just how I'd play it.

    I might lean the opposite way on this one. I think Bates plays better against Iowa.

    AA will be more poised, Bates will give the Hawks more fits.

    Re: Bates or Arnaud?

    We didn't get to go to the game tonight...but I'll say this...

    Arnaud was 12/15. Bates was 3/6. Both threw TD passes and zero INTs. We won the game, again.

    I see no reason to pick one guy...both performing well. If it ain't broke...

    This is based on what? One catch in last years game. I think they both do good things, although I would lean toward AA on the bases that IMO he is more consistant.

    Yup, totally agree. Both on a roll, why change a thing.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.

    Re: Bates or Arnaud?

    Bates is more likely to break a big play but he's also more likely to throw the ball up for grabs. I say start AA on the road.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Nothing based on last year at all. Iowa just has a big problem with a dual threat QB. I know AA can move a little but not the same as PB. It is nothing personal, AA is a good QB with great consistency but PB offers something that Iowa has show a tendency to not be good at handling in the last few years.

    Simply because people can't wrap their head around having 2 QBs. We have 2 fantastic athletes - 2 of our best players on the team. Gotta get 'em both on the field - would be foolish not to.

    The coaches realize and are doing that. End of story.

    Re: Bates or Arnaud?

    I just think eventually one of the guys will not like splitting time with the other and problems would develop. We're sorta in a honeymoon period right now. Both of these guys are good enough to be "the guy" and they both know it. I would love for a 2 headed monster at QB to work but it's difficult IMO.

    Also need help on the offensive line, when we can't run the freakin' ball against a Kent State. I thought our new, upgraded strength program was supposed to help in this area???
