Yes, I know he's practicing with the TEs.
Just like many other positions. The QB position has been recruited over, since CMC has been recruiting better athletes each year.
Forgot about Dom DeLira
Evidence CPR turned into a used car salesman...
I know we all like the star ratings and the highly-recruited athletes, but sometimes (and especially at Iowa State), you are better judged for what you can find on the scrap heap and what you can do with that scrap to make a serviceable (or even a star) player.
Isn’t more a nature of the QB position than the statement of recruiting. Look at how many top QB recruits the blue bloods go through. Once you find a guy, others go elsewhere.
Park was talented. Moore was a transition class filler, Noland surpassed as a sophomore by an elite freshman, and Dean a versatile athlete that should not be wasted sitting behind Purdy.
I'll guess that Dean is a "miss" much in the same way another QB switch was a "miss", Joel Lanning. That is, if/when Dean switches.
Props to CMC for the quick trigger on Noland and switching to Brock. Rhoads probably rides Noland all year and doesn’t play the True Fresh
He's behind a stud QB and has diverse talents. That's how I see it.
Who cares about Paul Rhodes? I don't see the obsession with bringing up old coaches. He might have played him all year, but that's why he was fired. We got a great head coach now. Without Rhodes, Campbell might not be here. Regardless either way. It's about Zeb losing out a starting job. Is Rhodes at Iowa State or North Dakota State? Answer: No, so why bring him up?
Root for who is here. Enjoy what we have.
It's almost like CMC is recruiting just generally good athletes.
Show a little respect for old ISU coaches.
That's definitely a prop I have to give this staff: we are not afraid to play young guys who are ready, regardless of position. Throwing a true frosh QB into the fire is something that a lot of teams would struggle to do. We built an entire season out of it.
We tend to get young guys ample minutes during their development time, and others become backups or even starters very early. Campbell has no fear towards putting the best guy on the field, regardless of who's above him, and that's an awesome quality to have.
He's stood by the 'make me play you' mantra from what I can tell and so far it's paid off while also having buy-in from players for when their time comes.
I've always wondered how much Moore was Campbell trying to make a good start with in-state recruiting. Ironically, it was somebody he had just recruited out-of-state, but it made a good statement that his first commit was from Iowa.
Moore is a totally different story if he doesn't blow his ACL on his 4th day on campus
Noland started last season as the backup but played several games as the starting quarterback. Not wishing injury on anyone at NDSU, but Noland could still get plenty of time as QB1 by earning the spot during the season or by default.
Also, I learned that NDSU is playing their home opener at Target Field in Minneapolis against Butler University. Strange.
So like Tate Martell at The U working out with the receivers after being declared 3rd string QB...
Luck has nothing to do with it.
Rhoads? Where we're going, we don't need Rhoads...
^^This^^. I don't get the bagging on Zeb. He didn't play bad for us. I think CMC just wanted to give Brock some reps and he just lit it up. Zeb knew what was ahead of him here and decided to go elsewhere.
Now he is the #2 QB on a team who's last two starters are in the NFL. Who knows what could happen from here.
