Do those descriptors even apply to any of the running backs this season? I think he heard run and [Iowa player name] and just assumed talk about a running back?

I’d say it applies to sargent. He himself has said he has a chip on his shoulder. He does break tackles but i would say he runs mad or down hill like jerome bettis

Is anybody else annoyed that the Sprint commercial actor wears a Hawkeye outfit?

I’m mad he’s a beta soy boy that’s wearing Hawkeye colors.

Great, all this respect talk, now Kirk is never going to put up 70 points on an over matched opponent like some of these cooler coaches[sarcasm font]

Stockstill will get along great with Kirk Ferentz. Both are big on fundamentals and execution.

Do football coaches and journalists both attend Cliche School together?

So we've discovered that Stockstill doesn't do any of the game prep himself.  He relies on the assistants to do that and feed him the information he needs.  That generic "hard-nosed" running back description doesn't really describe any of our guys too closely, so I'm assuming he had no idea who was being asked about and just game a general positive-sounding description that most RBs would be okay with if hearing about themselves.

I think the all this shows is that when you are playing an out of conference opponent, coaches don't learn the names of the players on the opposing team - they learn their numbers.  If you pay attention to press conferences you will often notice that they refer to players numbers.

I look forward to Stanley making people miss and breaking multiple tackles on each of his lightning-strike scrambles!
