Gary's call was...not great.  He had a bad angle and thought Iowa should have gotten flagged for fair catch interference.  I would like to hear the Cyclone side of it though...

I really like how many of these young guys conduct themselves when it comes to transferring.  Most of them exit quite gracefully.  Much better than that Clemson QB from last year to be sure.

A note on Jones.  I was at the game and on NIU's two big chunk runs up the middle he was pretty horribly caught out of position.  Then they burned him on a pass over the middle as well and pulled him pretty quick.  Surprised me too but Hockaday made the most of his opportunity.

I also really liked seeing how many guys we were able to rotate through the trenches while still having success.  Depth at D line could make the D monsters this year.

You make some good points.  But lets look at Barta's three big tenants.  Win, Graduate, Do it "Right".  Optimizing the revenue from your profit sports (football, basketball, wrestling) is about more than just the fans.  It's about the entire body of Iowa student athletes.  You don't see this as much when attending a football game but you definitely see it towards then end of the basketball season when they parade the entire graduating student athlete body our at half time.

I would love my game day experience to be maximized as a fan.  But if my marginal value is slightly lowered to send someone to school or at least support that individual how can the athletic department feel bad about that decision?

I'm still never going to do the pancheros burrito lift though...
