    Stanley. He lacks the intangibles that Thorson, Blough, and even Hornibrook and Martinez have.

    There is a long list of NFL quarterbacks, from Jeff George to Jay Cutler who had all the physical tools but never won in the NFL, seldom even made playoffs.

    Hopefully he takes the all conference snubs to heart and works on what he lacks in his senior year. His not even getting noticed for honorable mention speaks volumes.

    HOF baby. Is a perfect human incapable of error.

    OT: I'm liking how the 2020 class if off to a good start
    Deuce is an ESPN 300
    Michael Lois is a stud but I think his injury should remove him from football but obviously still honor his academic scholarship. That type of classiness always helps in recruiting.
    I. Bruce? Don't know much about him. Anyone with info feel free to share your impressions.

    No mention of the fact that Iowa was sub 70 in the country in Yards Per Rush and Rushing Yards per game...

    Pretty obvious teams stacked the box, if a receiver got over the top NS wasn’t connecting anywho. I don’t need to be a Dcoordinator to figure that out I watched Iowa FB the last 2 season.

    Iowa has faced stacked boxes every year in the KF era I’m sure. I’m not saying NS is godsend he made plenty of mistakes, but placing the entire blame on him seems silly.

    We couldn’t run the ball which is an Iowa staple. We had WRs that struggled mightily creating separation. And sometimes we had an All-American TE watching from the sideline in critical situations. Those aren’t all Nate Stanley problems.

    2019 is Nate's year to be more consistent. To have a short memory. Not so much good Nate/bad Nate. That completion to TJ to give Recinos the game with fg attempt was huge and could parlay into a nice bowl game and senior year.

    I'm having a fun little debate in one of IowaLaw's threads right now that is tangentially related to your post.
    Basically I'm arguing that Iowa has more talent (I include non-starters in that evaluation) than all but 2 of our opponents this season. How many opponents have 3 All-Americans? How many of them have a more loyal fanbase? How many of them had a friendlier schedule? How many of them have better facilities?
    Most important, how many have a coach with this on his resume?
    AP College Football COY (2002)
    Walter Camp Coach of the Year (2002)
    Big Ten Coach of the Year (2002, 2004, 2009, 2015)
    Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year Award (2015)
    Eddie Robinson Coach of the Year, Football Writers Association of America (2015)
    Region 3 Coach of the Year (American Football Coaches Association) (2015)
    Woody Hayes Coach of the Year (2015)
    Football Guy Of the Week (2018)

    It's fair to say this season was a missed opportunity

    Bruce is a heck of an athlete. Plays RB for his high school team.

    I'm super excited about Hogan. He ticks all the boxes of stereotypical star QB. Texan, big arm, mobile, great name, and a bit cocky. Cannot wait to get him on campus.

    Very valid point, but there's many of us that feel that not only did Jay Cutler have the tools, but feel that Jay Cutler was a tool... At least Nate seems like a likable guy. Cutler not so much.

    Didn't Denver draft Von Miller with one of the picks they obtained from Chicago in the Cutler deal?

    Will he be here early? Can't remember.

    He's 2020, so he's a short ways off. But he seems to love Iowa and wants to help bring other guys here.

    You may be right.

    So the Broncos got arguably the defensive player of the decade.

    The Bears got a coach, coordinator, and team killer.

    The Broncos weren't the only team to profit from the deal. The Packers said thank you very much as well.

    Thank god these recruits are reading my thread. So far I've helped bring LaPorta and Jeudy on board. I'll keep working for the staff gratis but would appreciate a shout-out from Barta for all my fine work.
