    What happened to Eikmeier?

    I see in various threads that he is "not healthy". What's up with that?

    It's probably the big city food he is not used to in Ames.



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

    Re: What happened to Eikmeier?

    Better question is why are we not seeing more of Buckley? Wasn't he a highly rated player and he still gets no playing time. So was he a bust or what??

    Takes time to learn the system (unless your last name is Colvin, as he is going to step right in next year and save the program).

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Seems to take our opponents about 3 or 4 days of prep to learn and thus shut down our "complex" system.

    3 or 4 days seems like too long. How long is halftime?

    He needed a redshirt. I think there's still hope he can help our program down the road but at 155 pounds it's rather difficult.
