    So true. He has been banned on the Iowa boards numerous times. The fact that some people on here are still having back and forths with him is weird.

    No you are right but but of those felt like odd fits. Duggan is a super talented kid that most schools would have taken but really didnt fit with our offense. He will have a better chance to really shine at TCU imo. Hickman again, great player but they already had Lee locked up so most people didnt see it as a huge loss like Henrich was. Just my opinion. I think they will both do well at Neb.

    the coaches may have lost Heinrich. but they did get US Army AA Jacobs out of Ohio that OSU tried to flip. Wolf is a 2* player. he also wanted to play BB and FB and that played a major factor in him sticking with UNI that and the fact he grew up within 20 minutes of UNI. was a huge UNI fan.

    these are 4* players by 247 with their Rivals rating
    OL Miller 4* but just a 5.6 3* by Rivals
    OL Endres 4* but just a 5.6 3* by Rivals
    LB Jacobs 4* but just a 3* by Rivals US Army AA who OSU just tried to flip
    TE Lee 4* but just a 3* by Rivals
    QB Padilla is just a 5.5 3* by Rivals Georgia just tried to flip him
    RB Goodson is just a 3* who hairball made a in home visit with last Thursday night and offered that night to get him to flip.
    the last RB that Hairball came in at the last minute and got to flip a week before signing day was Higdon their top RB the last 2 seasons.
    RB Byrd out of Alabama who just led his team to the state Championship. is just a 5.5 3*.

    yeah there are several recruits that are grossly under rated.

    on HR I was banned then the rest the ban msg was PREVIOUSLY BANNED. that is why I was banned multiple times. one thing that I learned is if you support the players and coaches, you are not wanted on there. its all about trashing the coaches and players of both the BB and FB programs
    the biggest thing about recruiting they are/will not be happy till the coaches land 5* recruits has nothing else will please them.
    sad part is Iowa is not those type of players dream destination. why they don't get higher rated player at the OL, TE, DL, LB and DB positions since Iowa has a very good track record under KF at putting these type of players into the NFL.

    or maybe they are but the player they are getting are under rated.

    Iowa needs to get some WR's to had to stretching the Field to stop teams from selling out to stop the run.

    yes they wanted Hickman but they got 3 other TE's that they like as for Duggin some thought that Nebraska would get him being in Nebraska's backyard and CB is a Nebraska fan based center.

    you have to figure in where a kid is located and what style he wants to play in
    Duggin spread offense
    Iowa Pro style too vastly different styles

    like it or not TCU = Spread offense
    Iowa Pro Style
    which would you choose?
    QB Padilla out of Colorado is a better fit for Iowa system.

    Iowa had 5 All-B1G players, correct? Where is the disconnect, from play on the field? A team like that should have won ten games.

    Ironically if Riley was still at Nebraska, he might have played a part in keeping Mertz from UW. Thanks Frost!

    Agree, as a Northwestern fan I thought Iowa overall had the best talent in the division this year (in what admittedly wasn't a great year for the division). They lost the Wisconsin game late, their QB looked as if he were asleep against Penn State (missed a tight end that was open by 20 yards and threw a craptastic interception at the PSU goal line), and they hardly threw to Fant the whole game against Northwestern. Iowa under Ferentz has a reputation for overachieving, but they probably underachieved this season.

    You will rue the day your spread offense allowed the best QB in B1G West history to drive through Nebraska unrecruited.

    Maybe he should take a snap under center in Madison before comparing him to 2AM after all one has proven himself how good he will be..

    how did you figure that?
    1st lost a pair of 1st Team AA's on defense
    2nd they lost 3 3 year starters at the LB positions the biggest was MLB Jewell a 1st Team AA
    3rd they lost a 3 year starting DT
    that's just on defense
    on Offense they lost these
    4 year starter WR Vandenberg
    2 year 4* C Daniels who left after his JR year
    2 year Starter RB Wadley who had back to back 1000 yard rushing seasons, the 1st to do that since Russell did it 2002 and 2003.
    3 year starter at RG Welsh
    to be continued.

    If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a noise?

    these were the new players
    RB RSSO Young no prior starting experience
    RB Kelly-Martin no prior starting experience
    RB JUCO Sargeant didn't arrive on campus till June
    WR SO Smith-Marsette
    WR SO Brandon Smith
    previous starters
    JR TE Fant
    RSSO TE Hockenson
    JR QB Stanley
    RSSO LT Jackson
    SO RT Wirfs
    JR WR Easley a JUCO Walk on.

    with that many young starters being 1st year starters. I have no clue how anyone would come to the conclusion that this was a team that should have been a 10 win team.
    they lost to these
    Home Wisconsin the preseason predicted to win the BT West and a top 10 team
    @ PSU top 10 team predicted to contend in the BT East.
    @ NW who won the BT West Division Title
    @ Purdue who beat Iowa in Kinnick last season

    they all had two things in common
    1st they all beat Iowa last season
    2nd the QB's are/were all SR's

    maybe its time to give other teams the credit they are due when they win.

    depends upon if you tape record the forest before it fell. but that's like saying if no one is there to see the tree fall [did it really fall].

    don't need to as they are Hawkeye players and it is to read the depth chart as it is posted before each game.

    all you need to do is read. I suppose you know nothing about the starters on the Nebraska team? nor do you follow recruiting?

    Wah. Wah. Northwestern played with its fourth and fifth corners most of the second half of the season (and unfortunately for the second half of the B1G title game), then got a couple of safeties injured. Our QB was on a play count at the beginning of the season. Two key injuries on the OL early in the season. Hall, arguably our best LB, was playing part-time much of the year (and won't be playing in the bowl game). Our top RB, Larkin, had to retire from football with an injury after three games and his backups got hurt, leaving us with a walk-on and a true freshman (who fortunately turned out to be good) so we had virtually no running game for three games. I don't care who was playing for Iowa. You had Penn State beat if your veteran QB a) hits a TE who was running free behind the PSU secondary or b) calls a TO instead of throwing the ball directly to the Penn State safety from the frickin' 3-yard line. You lose a 14-10 game to Northwestern where you basically ignore one of your best receivers against a depleted Northwestern secondary. Sorry, but you had a great shot at winning the division and blew it. Give it up and try again next year. And now I suggest you quit boring the good Nebraska folks with non-Nebraska stuff, and I'll do the same.

    Every fanbase thinks that their recruits are underrated. Some may be but IMO most aren’t.

    It sounds like you are a little bit more than obsessed with some young men. Recording their age, stats and sexual preference

    when the topic concerns the BT West Division and not just 1 Team then its fair game to any fan base to chime in. all I have done is shown Iowa recruits and nothing more.
    boo hoo Iowa starting CB's were both out for 4 games and they were replaced by a pair of True FR. and who was this best Reciever that Iowa ignored?
    here were Iowa's passing stats
    23 completions for 314 yards. hmmm ignored is not the word I would use.
    but since NW sold out to stop the run and held Iowa to 106 yards on 40 carries. that is why Iowa lost.

    its really sad when a NW fan won't even give his own team who won the West Division ANY Credit for winning the games.

    if if but but means nothing, close only counts in Horse shoes and Hand grenades with Nuclear weapons not included. its a well known fact a play here or a play there can win or loss in any game.

    When the topic concerns big 10 west recruiting on a Nebraska board, we really mean Nebraska recruiting. If we want to know about Iowa recruiting we will go to the Iowa Board.

    then why not start the thread off like this
    Nebraska recruiting
    and don't include the BT West in the topic. adding the or puting BT West in the thread title opens it up to other BT West teams.
    Wisconsin just signed the #2 Pro Style QB
    NW just got a 5* QB Transfer in from Clemson
    Purdue has 1 4* WR signed are expected to sign 4* WR Bell a AA game formerly the US Army AA Game.
    Indiana flipped RB 4* Samson from OSU [Although Indiana is in the East]

    they are all upgrading the recruits they are signing.

    another thought on Purdue
    they currently have 5 4* commits that have signed with a class ranking of 27th.
    they may move up 1-2 spots in the rankings but Bell will give Purdue 6 4* recruits in the 2019 class compared to the 8 in your class.
    Wisconsin has 6 4* recruits in the 19 class and they only have 19 commits and sits in 25th place.

    the West teams are all improving the talent they are bringing in the BT West will no longer be a cake walk to the Division Title.
