    CB for Fidone.. he and family loves Nebraska!!

    Agree. Why do so many threads on any Nebraska or Iowa board turn into the same pissing match with the same worn out arguments about why one program is more relevant than the other? Tiring. But here I am, reading through it all again.

    CB for Fidone.. he and family loves Nebraska!!

    A great observation was almost lost in this chest thumping post. 4 of the 5 TEs listed on the Neb roster are junior and seniors. Iowa has perhaps over recruited the position the past two years. Today’s athletes want to play right away and showing them a path to the field is critical in...

    Epenesa going pro

    I have no idea what you are trying to say. Maybe use a comma here and there to break up the rant.

    Coaching Announcement

    With the AFCA convention going on this week, I wouldn’t expect any announcements soon. I wouldn’t be surprised if Helfrich joins the staff.

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    I agree with everything you said here. Boyd Epley was ahead of his time! About 8-10 years ago I had the pleasure of sitting in on one of his clinics. I learned a lot about his metabolic circuit program that I believe Duval has reintroduced.

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    You mean, the speed Nebraska will have on offense that is similar to what Ohio State, Michigan, and Penn State have had for years? I’m not even on this board as an “Iowa fan” but rather to add my thoughts to what is, for the most part, a civil and thoughtful discussion. I am pry one of the...

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    Your last paragraph explained my thinking better than I did. The 200 call per day guy and the 4 call per day guy both have the same opportunities. However, one performs at a higher rate and is more efficient than the other. I agree that leadership of the individual (from top down) plays a key...

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    If blaming everything on Mike Riley makes you sleep better at night, Mr. Cobb, then blame away.

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    Same way you can be kicking ass at work and the guy/gal in the next cubical is making half the sales or bringing less value to the company. Both people have the same degree and access to the same resources.

    FWIW: Hawkeyes Shelling Out the Big Bucks

    Doyle is worth every penny. Hell, even PJ Fleck called him the best strength coach in America. (Maybe even elite). Iowa is a developmental program, they would be the first to tell you that. While most think player development focuses on what occurs on the practice field, that is minimal...

    Be careful Lloyd, you can’t triple stamp a double stamp.

    Iowa has 22 commits already?

    I said this in an earlier post, but am going to repeat myself. Nebraska and Iowa both have their own recruiting philosophies but they are not as far apart as both Husker fans and Hawkeye fans on here want to admit. The reality is both schools are going to compete for the same kids within the...

    Iowa has 22 commits already?

    Nebraska and Iowa’s recruiting philosophies are about as polar opposite as their offensive philosophies. Neither is right or wrong but is as calculated as anything else in the program. It is somewhat interesting that Iowa has offered somewhere abound 150 players in the 2020 class and have 22...

    Why do most other fan bases not see it?

    Every fan base in America, just like any coach at media day, can talk about how much they love their team, the progress they made, their culture, and the job they have done in recruiting. That is all we have had to go off of since the end of last season so we eat that crap up. I really...
