Just for this moment got to go with the big fella. I remember yelling at my tv screaming hell yeah! And wife being like
Down 10-5 in the 4th quarter. Unranked Iowa takes the lead when Adrian Clayborn blocks this punt and returns it 53 yards for the go ahead touchdown. Iowa would never look back as it would dominate the fourth quarter en route to a 21-10 victory over #5 Penn State in Happy Hawkeye Valley.
+1 ....and while we definitely miss the talent of Clayborn, Ballard, Klug, we've missed Angerer's intensity even more
This is a tough one, but Shonn Greene will always be one of my favorite players from any era of Iowa football.
Before he got into trouble, DJK. I loved me some DJK. Otherwise I'd say Sash probably.

Angerer hands down, guy was awesome
Gold medals aren't really made of gold. They're made of sweat, determination, and a hard-to-find alloy called guts.
Karl Klug. Always overlooked because of his size and the rest of the guys on the D-line. Amazing motor, bigtime playmaker ala Mitch King
If you don't like my opinion, at least you can enjoy the view
Stanzi, when ever he was not throwing a pick 6.
Shon Greene !
1). Pat angerrrrrrrrrrrrer. Easy one for me. (now Indy colts lb)
2). Bbrandon myers. Now an Oakland raider
3). Broderick binns/ a clay#94r / Brett greenwood/ Karl klug/ sash/stanza/moeaki. :)

That's a tough one, I will give one from offense and one from defense...even then it is still tough.
Offense- Ricky Stanzi. I loved his attitude and think he was a great leader.
Defense- Tyler Sash. Same as for Stanzi, and his plays he made were fun to watch
We usually won those game when he threw a pick-6.
I can come up with at least 4 during the 2009 season, Arizona, Ark St, Michigan and GT in the Orange Bowl.
How many did he make in 2009, and in career?
I know, but I got so frustrated with him. I loved his leadership and that he never gave up.
Another vote for Stanzi.

This. I also loved Stanzi and Paki.
Offense - Greene for straight running over people.
Defense - Clayborn... PSU punt block scoop and score still gives me chills.

I really wish he had been able to stay healthy in his career. He had about as much raw talent as any Hawkeye OL in the Ferentz era.
A little bit torn here, because its tough to not take Angerer here. He was everything thats awesome about being a Hawkeye. Easily my favorite overall player. But, my favorite player to "watch" while he was playing at Iowa, and for nothing other than how he played when he was on the field, was Adam Robinson. I loved that skill position type of player thats not blessed with all the tools in the toolbox, but has the will to not go down, a lost trait at the RB position.
