Nebrantska has never failed to bring in any of the top 4 players in their state in program history. There have never been more than 2 4 star players in their state in one recruiting class until this year when there were 4. All 4 were within 50 miles of their campus and they failed to land a single one of them. It was the best class in their states history and they completely failed. Based on average stars they are bringing in the 11th ranked class in the Big Ten.

Nothing in my life has ever worked out better than Scott Frost's tenure at Nebrantska. It's like I was granted one wish in fourth grade, and it came true.
I knew he was having off field issues, but I didn’t know Frost was banging fourth grade teachers.

were you furiously masturbaiting to this class? Iowa land some players?
Great secondary and very good D-Line, it looks like. We'll see how the TEs and QB do. Wish we could have gotten the Vaughan kid at LB, but if we had to split with Wisconsin for players from that school, Entringer looks just as good. Kaleb Johnson could be the real X factor. We're sure due for an all-around stud at the spot. I'm in the Patterson skeptic camp, but would of course be thrilled to be wrong. It just seems like 180ish pounds with his skill set might be 25 pounds too light. But maybe he has the indescribable "it" factor.

I think this class sort of separates itself from some recent others with the lack of “wtf? How TF did that kid get a D1/P5 offer?!?!?” kids.

The last few classes Iowa seems to have settled into kind of a groove with signing a lot of solid guys. Not necessarily a ton of high ranking guys, but it seems like there’s a very solid floor in the last few classes.

Signing day used to mean that guys with no offers or MAC guys with no other options would get offered and flip.

Now those guys with no offers are almost always committing as preferred walk-ons and if they are trying to flip MAC type guys, they have blown up and have offers from other Power 5 schools.

Much like finally not losing to Central Michigan or North Dakota State, it raises your floor up a significant amount. We are creeping closer and closer to the sustained success that Wisconsin has had the last 15 years. I would argue Iowa is already there.

Minnesota is currently what Iowa used to be. They will get a 11 win season, then go back to 7 or 8 wins and losing to some shit school like Bowling Green that keeps them from that 9th win, being ranked and a better bowl.

I know he’s a year old for his class but who knows. Feels a little bit like a Locure situation.

Iowa wont get a sought-after skill player to transfer there while their QB had the physique resembling yours Douglas.
I have to believe Iowa will be getting a decent qb in the transfer portal. It's just too good of a situation.

They're not coming to Iowa. Did you see the turd who started at QB against Michigan?
he is a wide receiver from Wyoming. I don’t necessarily think Iowa gets him either, but this is the exact type of player from a mid major type school we’ve gone to the portal to get before.

Guy has an offer to play in Lincoln Rileys offense and you think Iowa has a shot with Peaches as QB? Ok. You've seen the eyerolls from teammates after shitty throws the last two years right? Probably the reason Smith didn't come back.

OL, DB, specialist....sure I can see them coming. Skill position on offense, yeah right.

There is absolutely no reason why they shouldn't get a transfer QB. Very talented team returning but the combination of the thin roster at offensive skill positions, Petras being so terrible the last 2 years, and the obvious Ferentz component means it's very unlikely

You've turned into quite the miserable fuck.

Who’s ready to discuss an even bigger issue than Doug’s boy peaches? The OL. It may actually be worse next year.

Richman isn’t shit. He was playing way too early, but the guy has the makings of a monster run blocker. I kinda expect Colby to win the right tackle job. DeJong can become a depth guy.

I don't get Justin Britt. Personal Kirk recruit, played as a true freshman, and then how do we end up with what we saw this year with him.

Colby is going to be one of the tackles next year.

no it won’t, you stupid fuck. It will be much improved.
No shit. Wtf is wrong with people?

Those young guys on the line who had to play this year and sucked? Well guess what? They're going to get bigger and stronger and faster. You know some of those guys on the other teams they had to block? Well guess what? A lot of them won't be there next year and will be replaced with younger guys with very little experience. The line in particular needs more time to be ready.

I'll never understand the notion that players stay at the same level from the moment they step on campus. Don't improve. If they don't perform right away get rid of them.

You're right there is a long history of adding skilled transfer QBs at Iowa. I'll even give you brad banks as a transfer instead of traditional recruit to get your list started.
Nate Chandler was ok. Cody Sokol may have been ok.

It's like they haven't watched Iowa football for the last 20 years.

Only teams with good players at all positions will get future good players at all positions. Otherwise, quit trying to recruit. Did I do that right?

I don't get people who are so negative about sports. There's no way someone like Shawnee even can enjoy a game with all the stupid negativity going through his brain all the time. I can't watch Iowa games with people like that and really just have a handful of people I watch games with to avoid that shit. It's why I don't get into chat. 5 minutes into the first quarter half the people are bitching and moaning and shitting their pants. Can't be fun for them.
