    But undefeated in the conference, I will take that.

    Epenesa is a garbage, overrated Hok player.

    Looking forward to the day when threads like this are few and far between. Unlikely, I know.

    I'm sorry but if you don't think Epenesa is overrated based on his performance so far, then you're an idiot. Simple as that. I don't care if that hurts people's feelings.

    Dexter...that's why you shouldn't have any ranking until October...this is more a case of too much early expectations on the Cyclones. They lost their two best skilled players and it has taken 4-5 games to find their identity for this year.
    I'll go as far to say Iowa State has actually improved since the beginning of the year. The eye test certainly tells you that.
    Iowa, on the other hand, after watching that s*** show last Saturday is the definition of "regression." You should really be worried Stanley still shows his true colors when pressured enough. He may suffer the same fate Saturday against Penn State that he did against Michigan. I would say that's true regression.

    Iowa fans won't have to worry about Epenesa leaving for NFL at this rate though.

    I wonder if Espenesa is a great athlete who can make plays when he comes in only some of the time and just do his thing (like last year), but not be able to master the game plan well enough to perform well for a whole game.

    Espenesa reminds me more of Matt Leo than Uwazarike! Give me Zach Peterson!

    You’re right, of course.It’s just I know that Hawk fans get off on the attention they get here on CF. It feeds into their arrogance and the Super Bowl talk and all the rest. We’ll get a shot at them on the basketball court in two months.

    Said this all summer about AJE and like others have said.. He will learn what it’s like to play an entire game not just 20 snaps on 3rd down. AJE was highest rated recruit in history of Iowa recruiting.. keep that in mind.

    as for the PSU game.. I can see Iowa bouncing back given last week and it’s a night game vs ranked team which Iowa always wins those.. mostly.

    it PSU blitzes a lot they can handle Iowa imo.. but if they sit back and play conservative they will lose. Penn State has beaten who?

    I think that he might be overrated, but only because he was "rated" a top 5 pick. He's a second round pick at least even if he doesn't play another down at iowa.

    Epenesa seems like a good guy and he has elite skills in some areas. I’m sure the Ferentz’s would love to see him back next year so it wouldn’t surprise me if they’re not putting him in a position to succeed.

    It was brutal. I watched while I waited for the Iowa state game to start. It amazed me that Michigan can’t recruit a decent quarterback

    Pre-season polls are pretty worthless.

    Not worried about Stanley....he'll be fine against PSU.

    Shea Patterson is absolutely pathetic.. And yes Iowa's defense is indeed good, but I've watched Shea since he was at Ole Miss and man he's brutal.
