Dont say it!!! YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU TEMPT AIRBHG!!!
Definitely. Sounds like a smart move by the coaches and by Mike himself not to push it right now, as the biggest thing is making sure it's not a nagging injury moving forward.
I wonder what happened to Jordan Walsh I thought he was supposed to be all world and such a hard worker coming out of hs. And is it typical now to have guards larger than l.t? I kind of thought left tackle was always a larger individual

I believe Walsh had some injury problems last year and he was pretty small for B1G play last year. I believe he was listed on the 2-deeps this year though.
And my favorite part of this team only 17 seniors and not a ton of starters are gone after this year
I....I mean AIRBHG is taking at least a year off, our running backs will do ok this year
You shouldn't talk about yourself, it makes you seem conceited.
Sounds like he's strongly in the mix again this year. Tackles are often the most athletic among the offensive line, so that sometimes necessitates him being a bit lighter. The really big guys typically aren't athletic enough to play in space at tackle, so they're more likely to play inside at guard.
Iowa is scary thin at tackle imo. 2 Juniors and then a bunch of young guys. I know KF likes to rotate guys and get the 5 best out there but I really feel they have been lacking tackles the last few recruiting cycles.
Also Steve Ferentz to center. That didnt take long.
Iowa seems to be going after some very good tackles so far in this recruiting process.
Also I didnt expect to see Steve get moved to C. It makes sense and he will now also be working with his brother everyday in practice.
Dad head coach, brother position coach. No pressure Steve, no pressure.
A different point is Weisman is up to 236 from 225 last year. Dude is gonna be a tank. Feel bad for anyone that has to try and tackle him next year.
He is a walkon TE that has been converted to C. Any contributions we get from him over his time here is great.
Play great or don't come home thats what I always say to my imaginary son.
Not patting myself on the back, but I called this move a while back. All I'm saying is that Blythe better not get hurt and miss any time over the next few years or he will lose his starting spot permanently....book it.
Saw this referred to earlier, but I was absolutely shocked when I saw how few seniors there are on the two deep...guess I have been too busy watching great Hawkeye BB to think about FB recently. There should be a lot of enthusiasm among the younger players to make their move on the depth chart and of course, it encourages me about future years for Iowa football.
So, bad news: Another year with some lack of experience. Good news: Lots of interesting position competition in 2013, and the future looks bright.
But, hey: I am the one who thinks Iowa will win 8 football games in 2013.
So Blythe a 4* recruit that is 300 lbs and had offers from Stanford, Wisconsin, Iowa etc is gonna get passed by a walkon that is 220 lbs, recently switched from TE that is a couple years behind in the program? Yeah Im not booking anything. Steve Ferentz is after Bofelli and a herd of others that could play C.

I agree with this. Just because his name is Ferentz doesnt mean that theyll start him just because. He will need to earn his way just like everyone else.
Pic #5, CJ Beathard.....looks a lot like Stanzi in that photo
I like that first picture with Buford, Fleming and Draper all in one shot. That 2012 defensive backs class could prove to be an outstanding haul when it's all said and done.
I was surprised that Fleming is listed on the 2-deeps and Buford isnt. I realize its just a worthless Spring 2-deep depth chart but sometimes it seems to be used as motivation or to send a message. Fleming bounces from DB to WR and back to DB and now hes listed before a guy who played quite a bit last year? Must of impressed someone on the staff.
I think Fleming is a beast of an athlete. Maybe Buford should RS. Naaah, need a lot of CBs.
Nice to see Cole Fisher gaining some weight. Looks like a LB now.
Is there an update on the weights?
I remember years past one of the papers would have an article regarding updated weights and who's gained size and/or lost weight.
That's definitely an interesting development - good point. I think the two-deeps at the end of spring practice will be more telling, as that will show us what the coaches thought of those players during spring practice. Iowa really does have some quality talent and depth at corner right now, so all of those guys will be battling it out.
