    Queston on RB and QB depth

    A. It seems like the back up role at RB is pretty up in the air at this point?

    B. If AA struggles this year, what are the chances Tiller gets a shot? Not early in the year, but by mid season would it be a surprise to see Tiller get the nod?

    If AA struggles Tiller will get a shot, but he wont stay in there. Arnaud will get another chance if he does struggle. To much leadership.

    Only way Arnaud is not the QB is injury or having a game like he did at Iowa last season.

    AA has to do the job.

    If AA can't get it things done this year and we call in Tiller for anything other than an injury we are in deep ****.

    AA has all the raw tools, just doesn't make the best decisions at times.

    I'm hoping he'll have a big redemption type game the second week of the season. Not impressed with Iowa's CB's. Although I was hoping to hear better things about the WR from the scrimmage, sounds like a lot of dropped balls.

    I am ok with their being different #2 backs for different situations as long as they can get them enough carries in practice to keep them in sync with the O. What I have seen at practice there are plenty of reps to go around.

    I remember hearing that Woody had really taken a positive step forward in spring ball.

    I'm hoping he can carry the load after Arob.

    I think a lot of the dropped balls were from the new guys on the team. It sounded like the first team wide receivers caught what was thrown to them.

    Good to know

    I thought Darks had pretty solid hands, so I figured he wasn't one of the droppers.

    Really excited about this group!
