Spence knows this super duper complicated offense better than anyone. He can’t keep his pants dry long enough to do anything with that knowledge. But he knows it.

I bet he’s doing lots of dot drills.

Say what you want about Iowa fan, they are basically undefeated when it comes to being right about good Qbs not starting. Banks, Stanzi, Cj
I don’t remember giving a single shit who the backup was for Jake Christensen.

Lol. You forgot to mention every other back up quarterback.

That's not true though.
Fine.

But it's incorrect to say fans are "undefeated". To a certain extent, fans have clamored for more than just those three. Selective data.

Let’s list the backups that Iowa fan has clamored for, that have not proven to be better than the starter.
Go!

Jake Christensen. Idk about message boards but in the stands fans wanted him to come in for Tate.
I don’t recall any consistent outcry for Tate to be replaced. I remember people loved Drew Tate, and still do.

Several dipshits I was in HMB with wanted Christensen over Tate in 2006, and were very loud in their dipshittery.

Threats of forcible sodomy by clarinet usually shut them up.

So now it's "consistent".

Many fans wanted AJ Derby over JVB. But probably not enough fans. Or they weren't loud enough. Or something.

Right. If we are saying that a half dozen of nolooks Casey’s friends want the backup, then I an not counting that. If we are then sure, Iowa fans always want the backup.

I am talking about times where a majority of Iowa fans believed and were vocal about the backup being better.

I thought that was obvious.

Did AJ Derby ever play at QB? JVB was terrible, so maybe Derby was better.

I think the bottom line is the nature of sports makes people think like dipshits. Back in October two friends of mine wanted to bench Aaron Rodgers and start Jordan Love. Said Rodgers had "lost it". This was after a bad half against Cincinnati. It happens everywhere with every fan base. It's happened with Iowa fans with more than just those 3 quarterbacks.

That being said, Petras and Padilla are going to transfer and Labas will start.

In fairness, there is a terribly terribly low bar for QB play at Iowa

There has been. But there has also been 3 quarterbacks who have been on nfl rosters. Not as good as some, better than others.

That being said, Labas is going to be great.

You just confirmed everything I’ve ever assumed about HMB members

How did he do?
3-6 for 50 yards. Good enough to confirm to many Iowa fans he should start.

But it doesn't matter. You're going to twist and contort the requirements in order to be right. It's OK. I don't care enough to continue. Especially because I know Labas is going to start next year.

I desperately want you to be right. It’s almost offensive that Iowa puts up with Spencer Fucking Petras at QB. It simply bottles my mind.

I hope you’re right, but I don’t think you are. I’ll set a calendar reminder to check in Labor Day weekend to see who is right.
