Sadly for eppy iowa has never put much stress on bench. Theyve focused on power movement such as clean squat deadlift etc. the guys who put up 225x30+ are fuys who have been lifting 225 for yeara. It is more about your endurance in the lift then how strong you are. Ive seen guys who could 1 rep max 600-700 lbs but barely hit 15 repa on 225 and fuys put up 225x25 and barely put up 500
My best was at 290 ran a 5.9 18reps and a 22in vert but my broad was 128” and i thought that was reasonable considering i wasnt at a high level program then saw him and realized i sucked haha
If im an nfl gm that guy makes more sense as a guard based on size. I think wirfs would be under sized at 320 playing guard. But what you said doesnt answer why he’s been listed as mid to late first since the preseason
Still don’t know why “experts” are saying he will be a guard and how they have anyone ol going before him in the draft.
Speaking of Stanley’s accuracy and the combine. Did anyone see his comments about how his footwork mechanics and deep ball issues were never addressed til now? Curious to have an elaboration from him or staff
Wirfs tree trunks were from being a freak of nature imo. Rarely seen nfl lineman with that. That being said, you can gain a lot of muscle and strength in a couple months when done right. And you just know doyle does it right
When you say quick, we talking wirfs quick or...?
My two cents: he saw the writing on the wall and was gonna be 4th or lower and decided to focus on school(life of a student athlete is hard). I think mayve he is gonna try and prep for the proday and get faster and maybe get a tryout?
thing is though, if you go back 10 years ago, he is hands down the #1 back. He rarely lost yards and managed to always fall forward. Imo he was just as good as greene just it never showed on tape. He’s been one of my fav backs tho and hope he lands somewhere he wants
After watching the highlights of elsbury he looks like he has the talent to compete for a starting spot. Has the size and technique but is he strong enough yet?
So does that prevent him from qualifying?
I felt he should have returned. He got burned a few times if i recall and could have very likely improved hia stock with a big season and a few more ints. Still i feel he will get drafted around the 4th or 5th round any later is an insult
Anyone know for sure what the two fingers wvery score was? I’m pretty sure it was for 2 star but not entirely certain
And an absolute love of punting
LaPorta looked like a senior out their he is gonna be good. Stanley did have on overthrow to tracey in the middle but we can over look that
They were so obviously in favor of USC it was ridiculous. You could tell they were upset UsC was getting their butts whooped til their producer told then to switch allegiances
Some things i noticed today, Is it just me or have refs in general been extremely shit this year?
Kirk wasn’t playing to not lose but to actually win like vs OSU
If you have the game recorded I recommend watching the award ceremony. This team has some of the most personality ive seen in years. Eppy say hi to your mother!
40 straight qb sneaks woulda been excessive but hell flex all you want Iowa flex all you want
Anyone else sad amani wasn’t dressed?
I’m glad we didn’t kick fg. Means we didn't leave points on the field
Best quote of the night: “Now they’re just tryin’ to flex on ‘em” -Joe Klatt
What our record this year when favored? When favored by leas than a FG?
Thought the exact thing
9 field goals and a fu safety
These have what’s been mossing this season! It would have fixed our Oline and prevented a lot of drops. Wonder why they weren’t doing them
Who else thought Yahya was like yea yea? Apparently it is pronounced y-eh
