Yeah I said Stanley was the latest in a long line of Iowa's starting QBs who've been taken in the NFL draft... 4 out of our last 5 starters. Nothing untrue about that.
All I said was none of them going back to the mid 80s amounted to anything.

I didn't say they did. Just that they did enough in college to get drafted as a QB into the NFL. Pretty impressive accomplishment foreee anyone.
So what are we arguing about? We agree you are bragging about a line of QBs that never found success in the NFL.

Yeah I don't know. Stanley was the topic and I just mentioned him being another Iowa starting QB drafted. Pretty cool accomplishment and something any program would be proud of.

Amazes me what you choose to be proud of?
crazy what they have "to be proud of" considering the recent news out of the program.. seems they need to hold on to anything that is mediocre at best...

Gonzo is a pretty easy read. He's scared they won't be able to hold together their prize recruiting class knowing the future isn't looking so bright. Price you pay for not Being willing to accept the obvious.

I don't think the future for the 2020 season is looking bright for anyone. As for Iowa's 2021 class, we'll see if there are any decommits but seems to be holding pretty strong. As for the program, lots of work to do but it sounds like lots of positive things are happening.

You say that so well I bet you're starting to believe it.

I wouldn't want to talk about ISU's class either if I were you.

I'm OK with what the former and current players are OK with. Judging from the recent vocal support of Jaleel, Daniels, DJK about all the positive changes happening, and indications that there's a pretty amazing energy in the lockerroom, seems like they're ok with where things are at. That's what matters to me. Sorry, I know you're rooting for racism and don't want things to get better for them.
It is hard to follow. DJK can now be an authority on things relating to Iowa football? Seems like a big flip from when he could t be

I don't think that they're going to release any of the individual personnel reports.. They could get leaked out or something, but I'm willing to bet those will be kept under wraps for a long time.

I think the fact that Brian was heavily involved in all of this thoroughly screwed everything up. Had his name not been Ferentz, there's no doubt in my mind he would've been placed on leave like Doyle and then fired after all of this.

Kirk mostly plead ignorance and because of that, is going to be able to fix the issues within his program. I don't necessarily agree with that, but that's just the reality of the situation and I hope actual change is made and that change doesn't not revert back to the mean down the line.
Lol, Kirk is going to "fix" the issue within his program. That was a good one!

Nate seems like a good guy, rooting for him.
As a Viking fan I feel like I'm obligated to root for him. That said, the current backup is a bum imo. Stanley should be getting a shot to backup Kirk, although I'm fairly certain if kirk does go down the team won't win a lot of games, regardless

Is Stanley even going to make the roster?
