Parker Hesse was in on the first defensive snap of the game. Iowa shuffles in DL a lot more than is typical, I think. So just because you don't "start" doesn't mean you're not getting just as many, if not more snaps.
Main point, coming into AJE's sophomore year did ISU have another DE in addition to Bailey who you think should've been on the All-Iowa roster instead of AJE? Did ISU have another DE who had stats/accomplishments relative to AJE similar to what Golston has relative to McDonald?
Twins post jogged my memory. It was Anthony Nelson. Hawk fans were saying Anthony Nelson was a lock. Who are you saying was better going into AJE's soph year? Nelson or AJE?
