    No. The interior of our offensive line isn't bullying anybody.

    Some of the reputation came from head hunting. Sanders was a head hunter. The games has changed. Not sure how that label will apply to a non yielding D.

    The still havent played anyone and the O will have to stay on the field.

    You are the energizer bunny of negative “fan”dom, aren’t you.

    No, but you try and be bully of the keyboard.

    No knock on Iowa. The game has changed. It's harder to make another team react in fear. That's all. Stingy? this team might be very stingy.

    I've been saying all along while a lot were negative that Iowa quietly has been improving the interior speed and on the outside of the line on D. Not sure the O line is experiencing that. But the D is.

    You sure are negative lol.

    The defensive backfield isn't bullying anybody

    the D still has about 3 qbs to hurt before that happens.

    Sanders was NOT a head hunter. Not even close.

    You didnt pay too much attention then. 2 wisky qgs shoulder to helmet

    Yeah. I paid plenty of attention. 2 hits out of 348 tackles = you're an idiot.

    That was Derek Pagel, who had an axe to grind with Brooks Bollinger, and who would room with him during their brief careers with the New York Jets.

    Read Pagel's memoir. He mentions Bollinger in there and some incident that precipitated the hit. Helmet hit or not, it was acceptable at the time and did not draw a flag.

    How about the hit tOSU's Troy Peel laid on Deven Harberts in 1988? The helmet to helmet sound could still be reverberating around the lower bowels of Kinnick.

    Yeah it's interesting to go watch games from the 2002-2004 and see how many players we knocked out of games with head shots that were no calls but would be ejections today. Also Abdul Hodge horse collaring on ever tackle because it was actively coached.

    You went to the same family reunion as Dean?

    I know its hard....try and focus... my premise was that times have changed.

    Not my memory but I dont doubt you would remember it better.

    I was at a game...maybe AZ or Utah...where Bob Stoops about removed someones head on a pass.

    Did you see the Viking catch yesterday late for a td? I would guess the defender who looked like the ball went through his hands was concerned about getting called for targeting.

    You flat out called Bob Sanders a head hunter. I think that's unfair and inaccurate. You cited 2 instances out of his 348 tackles. Which, as another poster pointed out, wasn't even Bob Sanders. Whatever premise you may have had, your portrayal of Sanders as a head hunter was unfair.

    Even as recently as 2009, you had Sash and Greenwood striking fear into WRs going deep over the middle. The alligator arms that guy from PSU had on the final interception in the 2008 spoke volumes about how tough Iowa's safeties used to be.
