He’s gotta have input, one would assume.
Maybe.

But I'm old enough to remember the whispers that GDGD wanted Beathard over Rudock even back in 2013 and was overruled, and the whispers that KOK was fully on the Stanzi bandwagon in 2008 but was told Christensen would split time at QB.

KF isn't afraid of vetoing his OC, and likely even less afraid of vetoing his own son.

When asked about putting Spence in the second half of the Nebrantska game, Kirk said something like “I just had a feeling.”. Lulz.

But also, fuck.

It was worse this year because there were no fans last year.

Also Iowa being ranked #2 set an expectation that fans didn’t want to let go of. When it was clear what the main issues were preventing them from staying there, fans naturally let their frustrations out.

Who was out there trashing ZVVB?

That seems dumb.
When people bitch about the team in general you probably take it personally when your son is on the team. Like I said before, the healthiest thing for Becky to do would likely have been to just not be on social media.

The genie is not going back in the bottle with regard to shitty social media comments. Players/Family members will need thicker skin or will need to stay off of social media.

Weird- seems that the players used to be somewhat shielded to this via team twitter ban and social media restrictions....I know they could always look, but now they are allowed they are prob on it more. They asked for this

True, but I wouldn’t have guessed her top two examples.

His mom is talking about in the stands not on Twitter.

10 in the box. A fake FB dive and toss right had astronomical odds of going 20+ yards if not housed.
Just look at that defense.

Pre-play I was yelling at the TV "no run up the middle please!!!!!", while fulling expecting a vanilla run up the middle.

Ugh. Was so pissed after that 3rd & 1 play.
