    It's like some are ashamed or embarrassed to admit that MC gameplanned around AJE. I don't get it. If my team's coaches are going into a game with a generational talent at his position, I'd hope they were customizing a gameplan to neutralize his impact. Very weird.

    Epenesa got a lot better against the RPO as the season went on. He quit trying to speed rush every play and he played more like a traditional DE that had to honor the run as well. He really improved in that area as the season went on. He was a beast this year and we would be very lucky to get him for another year.

    I don't understand it either. MC would have been a fool to not game plan for Epenesa. He did and almost won the game.

    That is good for him and the hawks. At the start, it want even RPOs that was his issue, you just ran at him and he was so busy pass rushing any play that you could run right past him with a traditional running play.

    His game plan was have a first team All Big 12 OL own him and it worked. That first team All Conference OL was from Cedar Rapids and Ferentz took the Paulsen twins over him. Yikes!!!

    I’m beginning to think you aren’t understanding what’s being shown in the video. Either you didn’t play football or you didn’t learn much

    He’s not the most athletic guy, even for a NT. You think he’ll get drafted? He’s on the bubble right now.

    You said some Niemann kid was the best LB in the state and think a 6'4 215 lb WR would play fullback if he transferred to Iowa. Either you didn't play football or you didn't learn much

    Inconsistent college career. Good measurables. Total bust material.

    Epenesa was not given anymore attention on pass downs than anyone else. It's not like we doubled him every play.
