@IceManX722 clearly doesn't think very much of us if he doesn't think the Martin news has been posted a whopping 32 minutes after it broke.

Like we're actually doing work or something?

I'd love to know what young Ollie is thinking these days. What is his father saying in the confines of the Martin home?

Two deep at Michigan to no snaps at Iowa.

Maybe Brian's scheme is too difficult?

Thank God we're finally out of the spotlight. I didn't care for all that attention. Did you like it? I didn't like it at all.

They are playing Max Cooper over him. So fucking dumb.

Max Pooper works harder in practice and knows the complicated route trees better.

Imagine playing alongside Michigan wide receivers- guys like Donovan Peoples-Jones, Nico Collins, and Ronnie Bell. And now imagine sitting on the bench behind Max Pooper. I am going to say that the Martins feel real, real shitty.

I'm sure they have a reason for not playing him, and I would guess that reason is pretty dumb.

Well, well, well. Just last year, it was all dandy that fant wasn't playing as much and it didn't matter because "hock is better, his brother is a douche and he's soft"
Now, the great white hope isn't playing and now there's outrage. @nolookpass get in here and take a victory lap.

Not remotely the same scenario. He was still actually playing at least.

Max Cooper is just that good. That's why in a key game last year he was on the field and we're throwing fade passes to him in the end zone whilst Fant sat on the bench

Cooper is not a threat on punt returns, but at least he'll catch them instead of letting them bounce like Nico

He is fine and an improvement on punt returns. Hiwever, that should be the only time he sees the field.

I think it’s pretty fucking obvious. Year 20 and we still wonder why WRs that can’t block dont play in Iowa’s offense.

Because lack of WR blocking is really what's holding the running game under that 3 YPC mark....

I’m not even arguing the merits of it. But isn’t it obvious that’s the reason?

Oh I agree with what you that its a likely reason for the bench time (which is absolutely ridiculous if he can contribute in the passing game).

Good thing all those blocking WR are there to help us average less than 3 yards per carry

My one and only counter to that is my guess to the reason why they don’t would be playing him would tip off that it’s a pass?

Most teams play man. Run a fucking vert and the corner runs with you, no blocking necessary.

Well, if there's one thing Iowa's offense is known for is its unpredictability. Wouldn't want to risk changing that.

He’ll get plenty of playing time next year.
