Didn’t know if Rose would lose his spot considering Mclaughlin looks like a lock. He’s an OLB right? Maybe they’ll try him after safety if he’s got the speed.
Mclaughlin is a lock to Iowa State but Iowa's still recruiting him. Interesting

I would honestly rank both Heacock and Parker as top 20 DC’s, but Phil is better. The stats show it.
The stats? Running a boring tired old vanilla cover 2 out of a 4-3 against the big ten west about as far from local talent as you can get. Iowa is a training wheels program in every way, from scheduling to scheme, especially on D. At least Brian F tries to run some empty sets, albeit still primarily running safe stick and option routes. Heacock is an innovator and trend setter against teams in a part of the country where top talent can take visits and be back by supper time. He's basically single handedly reined in the most prolific offensive conference in CFB.

Do you even know what you’re saying? Because it sounds like you don’t watch football. Just because Heacock runs a bunch of different sets, doesn’t make him better. Phil is better at developing talent, and he’s one of the best in the country at developing DB’s. Heacock is good, but he isn’t better than Phil.

We should revisit this question the second Saturday evening in September.

Iowa fans "Phil Parker is so great!"

Also Iowa fans "I would rather have a special teams coach take over for Kirk than Phil Parker"

Yeah, let's see how that defense develops over the next 2-4 years without Doyle to "train" the players. Again, maybe not highly visible this year, but just wait...

Imagine bragging about having a good defense in the big 10 west. The conference is a joke. Northwestern got last place and sucked in 19-20. Then proceeded to curb stomp the rest of the big 10 west the next year for a first place finish. The big 12 is far superior. It’s like comparing apples to oranges.
