    SI.com Article featuring Iowa State

    I'm typically not a HUGE fan of this guy, but I thought this mailbag was pretty good. I think all Iowa State fans should at least read the last one on the 1st page that discusses a play-off system. Also, Iowa State is mentioned I think 3 times, so thats nice.

    Here it is:

    Iowa State was not featured. Iowa State was mentioned in a "what about this obscure school?" sort of way.

    "It's the lower-level BCS teams -- Iowa State, Washington State, Kansas State, etc"

    To the OP. That was our typical "Pick a random seemingly irrelevant school" mention.

    I know, but I thought his article, especially the part about the BCS vs a Playoff was very pertinant to Iowa State.

    In retrospect, the word "featuring" was a bad choice.

    Adrian Clayborn as a dark horse for Heisman...that's rich...

    I think he has about the same chance to win the Heisman as he does going to jail for assaulting a cabbie. Suh was the best player in the game last year, by far, and he barely got to sniff the trophy.

    Unless Clayborn picks up his game big time, he will not even get close to how dominate Suh was last year.

    Agreed. Although I think Clayborn's game is great, it is the conditioning that needs to improve vastly. Suh was in phenomenal condition, especially for a DT. Clayborn looks like he is having a arythmia after the first series of every game.

    Good player but he plays DT. I personally don't think there is any shot of a DT winning the Heisman. Suh was the best chance and, like you said, he wasn't even close.

    From what I have seen, Clayborn is very good but he is no Mr. Suh unless he improves.

    Also, you can't coach speed. Suh's speed is what is the most freakish. I had to give him props when he ran Tiller down.

    Re: SI.com Article featuring Iowa State

    the question re texASS and other individual school networks is a good one, and brings up an interesting scenario: say, for example, every school in the Big12 gets their own network going, and the isu v texASS game, or any intra-conference game for that matter, is not picked up by the big networks. which school's network could get to air the game?
    could this bring about yet more conflict and instability? makes Tubberville's comments the other day all the more prophetic.

    i remember watching the iowa arizona game, and if I recall, this claiborn ran the other guy from arizona (grigsby?) mentioned in the heisman article down from behind more than one time. And i believe that he is a DE, not DT. this guy is plenty speedy. in the big 12 he'd be just another guy with a jersey on, but in the big 10, yeah, i'm sure he is decent.
