I will say that I’ve never seen a HS coach fawn over a player like Petras’ did. and that’s saying something

I think Petras will be good. With that said, have we ever “heard” not good things about a new starter in the off season?
Coaches seemed a little concerned about Stanley not taking control of the huddle heading into 2017.

Jake C is the only 4-star QB to start for Iowa for Kirk, right? I think Wienke was a 4-star from some services, which, LOL.

Stanley: 3
Beathard: 3
Rudock: 3
Vandenberg: 2
Stanzi: 3
Christensen: 3
Tate: 3 (don't think he was 4 anywhere, but close)
Chandler: ? JUCO
Banks: ? JUCO
McCann ?
Mullen: ?
Beutjer: ?

Heard today that all athletic staff between $50k-$75k will be taking a 5% cut, $75k-$150k will be taking a 10% cut and all above $150k will be taking a 15% cut starting July 1.

Has he always looked like Joe Burrow or is that a new thing recently?

LOL if they don't do this on a marginal basis.

I’m not a member of The Athletic, so I cannot read the entire article, but these first few paragraphs make it move.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Spencer Petras has a power forward’s body, a mama’s boy face and perhaps the most powerful right arm on Iowa’s campus in 30-plus years.

A redshirt sophomore, Petras epitomizes what a pro-style offense would want in a quarterback. At 6 feet 5 and 230 pounds, Petras has the requisite size and build for pocket passing. Then there’s his arm, which is so impressive one must constantly rewind Petras’ highlight reel to appreciate its capabilities.

There’s a play in high school where a pass rusher hits Petras from the blind side, only to have the quarterback bounce forward one step and fire a 60-yard pass for a touchdown.

There’s another when he stood at midfield on the left hashmark and threw a perfect strike along the right sideline for another score.

“He’s got a cannon for an arm,” said Minnesota Vikings quarterback Nate Stanley, who started for three seasons at Iowa.”

He has a strong arm
He likes football and his teammates that go on record like him
He wanted to go to Nebrantska for a while
KOK was miffed that his mom only got barbecue takeout when he visited
he is staying in Iowa, where we love freedom, instead of California, where you get arrested for going outside
He has a strong arm

also quite often in games, Iowa State and Ohio State the exceptions
The only thing more discouraging in the spring of '17 was the WR situation. Easley and Devonte Young (Vande still in rehab). We knew about Fant, but not much about TJ and I don't think he was shown much that night. Beyer got a lot of targets. We now look like Ohio State or LSU at that position comparatively. Toren Young was probably the bright spot that night. (Easley may not have had a carry.)
