    Good for Austin. With another offseason of coaching and training, he's gonna be a really good one.

    Re: Austin Blythe named Freshman All-American

    looks like the OL will be solid,
    Van Sloten 5TH yr senior
    Blythe 3rd year SO
    Boffeli 5th year SR
    Donnal 4th year JR
    Scherff 4th year JR
    All have starting experience, vs this season where Iowa had just 2 with starting experience
    as for Backups with playing time and also who got a couple of starts because of injuries.
    Mac Millan 5th year SR
    Clark 5th year SR
    Walsh 3rd Year SO
    Simmons 3rd year JR IWCC JUCO tranfer
    that's 9 who have played and/or starting experience, add them to the RB's, TE's and WR's that Iowa has added/returning, all we need is a QB that is better than JVB to manage this team.

    And an OC that's better than Davis to manage the schemes.

    how about we see how the offense does with a full year under his belt at Iowa and the kids adjusting to his style of play.
    there were some plays called this season, I had never seen called by KOK.
    a flea flicker
    a snap to a RB then a backward pass to the QB for a pass down field
    there are others as well, people call JVB a bad QB, then say the OC is the problem, then say with a new OC everything will magically be all nicey nice again.
    sorry it does not work that way. way to many 1st time starters and way to many young players getting their feet wet, then you have to take injuries to figure in. this team just never got a chance to play as a unit, while the OL was getting used to playing together they went 4-2 including a win over MSU.
    after the injuries started to mount, the wins stopped

    Is that their branding now after the FSN launch fell on its face a couple months back? "Scout.com, powered by Fox Sports Next"???

    The derpage is mind-boggling down there.

    More importantly, congratulations to Austin.

    Just wondering, is Blythe a candidate to move to left tackle after Scherf leaves?

    bu bu bu bu but the Coaches have to go <sarcasm>

    let's wait to see what happens with our young & now experienced team. A lot of players like Blythe on this team. A lot of people will be retracting their statements from this year between 2013-2015..... just saying

    Doubt it very much as he is one that many think will be vying to fill james ferentz's shoes at center. I think it will be a battle between him, boffeli and simmons. Guards you are looking at the 2 guys that lose the center spot competing with donnal and walsh. Tackles I think are pretty locked at van sloten and scherff. With donnal most likely to move to tackle with injuries. This is all based on donnal and scherff coming back fully next year.

    I think he's saying when Scherff graduates

    I know I was just using what next yr looks like to show that it is more likely donnal would be the tackle. Plus it is rare to find a guy that has been a projected center (blythe is/was) moved to tackle.

    Blythe will not play a snap at tackle at Iowa. He is a guard/center all the way.

    Really, Rick and the offensive line knew we were going to get it done. Nothing was going to stop us. You could’ve put 24 players out on defense and we were going to somehow get it done.”-DJK-
