As one who started a thread entitled "Time to start Goodson" (and ride him longer) during the week of the Minnesota game, I thought the staff handled that one very well.
Looks like he's entering the real worldI guess he was stuck behind a guy in the same class at center but still sucks to lose somehow who had cracked the depth chart at a fairly young age.
E: actually looks like it's not a playing time thing, he's just done with football
It was prior to the season and wasn't exactly alone in that, but damn you got a boner every time you remembered it during the season.I forgot you kept trying to argue he was going to get drafted like halfway through the season lol
He has 13 career catches despite starting most of the season for one of the most tight end friendly offenses in the country, he's only going to get a NFL look if someone wants to try turning him into a fullback or something. LaPorta didn't have a catch until week 8 and already has more career receptions
I think that both Weiting and Beyer will make NFL rosters, but LaPorta will be the next great Iowa TE.
Forgot about his recruiting story until tonight. Same sort of story as Hockensen.
Says something that Miamen came in as the much more heavily recruited TE but they already have LaPorta fully integrated in the plans right now while Miamen is going to redshirt.
