I won't be 100% accurate with this, but I recall Heacock saying on a podcast that he see the punt as one of the best offensive plays (i.e. you don't score every drive, so its a 40+ yard play (again, not exact works he used, but a counter argument to why punting is good for overall game)
Great points.....and ultimately we did great last year and bring back almost all of our players...so this is a 'cliche' "prove it" type season.....which is great....a top 10 team SHOULD win most games/all home games, etc.
Seeing iowa as a top 15 means we have to come out and act like a top 10 team right away. Yes, can win the big 12 still of we lose, but beating a decent ranked iowa would justify these pre season rankings and get the kool aid flowing even faster!
Love that he's up high enough that they are investing in him.
I just looked the estimate up on contract value and signing bonus: $4,232,798 , SB $752,798
Good for him....sticking it out, believing in himself/the team, encouraging Breece, etc.
Yeah...when he was here didn't seem to say much and just did his thing on the field...would have LOVED more of this personality coming out 10 years ago, lol.
I will say, a big kudos to him for being happy, living his life, and approaching it in what appears to be a pretty chill manner. I know...
I've been thinking about expectations and I honestly want them to be motivated during lifting/spring ball....then hyper focused as fall hits.
They are kids, so they'll see Twitter, GameDay, ESPN and all the chatter. I love our staff and their calm/expect to win attitudes and each week we will...
Absolutely. And sets the tone for other recruits (work ethic, character, etc).
He's the type that I feel, had we not got him, could have been a "watch him become a star and we missed on him" type.
Getting legit excited for the next two years.
Wild....seeing us start as a playoff contender....like I would normally say "hope we start in top 25 so if we take care of business, we have a chance"
The playoffs are ours to lose....wow
Bring on everyone's best shot as we won't be underdogs....bring the swagger and confidence, but also...
