Well I guess ULL isn't the top25 juggernaut that ISU fans thought they were. They will be dropping out of the rankings and be replace by Coastal Carolina.
Not one single poster said that. You're an awful poster. I'm sure there is a "deactivate" account button. You should really think about clicking that

If Petras plays at Stanley level last year and the defense doesn't take a dip, they are pretty successful. If the defense takes a dip (which I think it does) Petras has to play much better than Stanley did
Agree 100%. Have no idea what to expect this year. Covid, interesting offseason, new QB. Iowa could go 9-1 or 3-6 and everything in between. I think anything could be in play.

Not at all. I think Stanley was more of a project than Petras is. Petras seems to be a natural QB and Stanley always seemed to be a work in progress. I thought Stanley turned out to be pretty good. Stanley's problem wasn't decision making, it was his touch on deep throws.
Agreed on the decision making. I think he only made bad decisions when he tried to press (duh I know, that's almost every QB) which luckily for him it didn't seem in his nature to try and press much. Maybe that was circumstance idk, but when or if he did press it normally didn't end well.

Interesting on the Stanley vs Petras thing though. I don't remember Stanley as a recruit so I will take your word for the comparison

Regardless what happens, I think for yourself as an Iowa fan, just try and be happy that you get to see your team (hopefully) play 8 games. It may be tough if they take a dip and I absolutely will be here to give your fan base crap, but hey, at least they took the field and it's a great feeling to watch your team play

Thanks, but I'm not holding my breath that the Big 10 will finish the season with their very strict Covid policy, but I guess we will see and any Hawk football is better than none.

I don't think Petras will be worse than Stanley will he?

Iowa's defense will take a step back

So, the same thing as Stanley. Had all the tools but never took the step to become elite and had questionable decision making at times
Stanley’s biggest issue was consistency. He had games where he looked like a legit NFL QB and games where he struggled mightily.

All indications are that Petras is more accurate than Stanley was. Hopefully that leads to a little more consistency at the position. KF’s first year QBs have historically been pretty good, so I’m pretty optimistic that Petras will have a good season.

What is the word on "Deuce"? I don't know if any of you know this but Georgia wanted him so bad they were going to fly a helicopter into see him. If he is that good he should be getting a look at as a starter?

Accuracy issues I've heard. Third stringer currently. Not trolling but it's not a QB room they're overly excited about

I thought last year Hall was a little better, but granted had more playing time and opportunities. He has clearly taken a huge step forward. Will see if Goodson has done the same, but it is going to be very hard to match what Hall has done.
You are not doing this right. Please stop being reasonable.
