    “There are usually 4-5 secondary pieces not just 2.”

    Oh so a team has to return all 4-5 full time starters to be in good shape.

    Got it.

    Now please find me one team in the country where that is the case.

    Milton and Jones are both better than any WR Iowa has returning and we brought in a big time grad transfer. Those are facts. You're stating really bad opinions like they are facts which is dumb

    I can agree on that, but the Big ten is improving. Big 12, ISU has improved, Baylor, TCU, Tech have regressed.

    I said they have to replace starters, yes every team does, but that is a question mark for ISU when they replace all conference players. Not sure why it wouldnt be.

    The Big Ten is improving? How so? Michigan St has regressed and the thought is Nebraska has been way worse since Bo left. Fleck sucks too

    Braxton Lewis was the starting safety along with Greg Eisworth. Braxton Lewis had the most interceptions on the team. The safety position is not a question mark for us. The CB look is where we will have youth at next year, but even the guys who will now start played significant minutes last year

    Then why does the Athlon national magazine agree with my take? about Recievers and that was before we had a good transfer come in ourselves.

    Nebraska is going to be better. Probably a better program that Iowa and ISU unfortunately. Fleck does suck, but he has a talented team.

    What did they say? Your WRs have potential? I'm sure they said the exact same thing last year actually

    ISU will replace one all conference corner with a pair of all conference caliber sophomores, and a solid DB with several other solid DB’s.

    Not complicated.

    But do you not replace full time starters in the secondary that were all conference (Peavy)?

    Baylor is going to be better but that doesn't matter but now Nebraska is going to be better and the Big Ten is improved. Lol what a take

    Minnesota went 3-6 in the Big Ten West last year but they're talented? Jesus

    Classic every replacement is all conference caliber, but Iowa cannot have that type of talent

    Who is saying Iowa cannot have all conference caliber DBs?

    I'm not spinning anything. I didn't even say the Big 12 was going to be improved this year

    There is no possible way you can actually be this stupid, so kudos for the decent troll.

    In the recent past, Baylor and TCU have been near OU and OSU at the top. Texas was kind of in the middle. Now ISU and and Texas are at the top with OU, which clearly means TCU and Baylor have to lose to teams like Texas and ISU. TCU and Baylor will now have 7-5 records instead of their 9-3, or 10-2 because teams like us are now beating them. Not necessarily because they're way worse, but because we're way better than we were.

    Why do you take like one or two year window and expect a linear trend? Baylor is on the up and TCU will be fine. Tech is kind of hard to get a read on but they do brink back quite a bit on what was an underrated defense.
