    According to Clone fans... they won't be needing a punter this year, anyway.

    Bye week before our game, and now their punter is out. Already two built-in excuses for the clones and the game is still 2 months away.

    The replacement punter will punt 5 times for an average of 64 yds and pin Iowa inside the 5 three times. And then suck for the rest of the season.

    Sucks for the kid. I'm all for rivalry bashing but I'd never wish ill will on a player without good reason.

    He’s Mel Gibson’s distant cousin. Is that good enough?

    I've had both, and they both involved long recoveries without ever regaining full pre-injury function. The Achilles tear resulted in more functional loss that I didn't get back, but I was significantly older when it happened.

    Either way, the kid is almost surely out for the season if it's a complete rupture.

    Looks like their kicking game could end up being their Achilles heel!

    This is so true. If I could buy stock in that prediction, I'd put my life savings into it.

    I thought it was Ass Alley at first. He kicks though.

    You mean the next big thing? In the last 2+ years, I think ISU has had at least 4-5 different starting Qbs during that time. And every single one of them was their would be "savior". Purdy is just the latest flash in the pan.

    It appears you've watched Iowa Football before.

    Thiago Santos fought multiple rounds in the UFC with a torn ACL, MCL, and PCL last weekend. That's just insanity.

    He hasn't played against a Phil Parker defense yet. And we have plenty of film to study.

    So he will now be 38 years old when he exhausts his eligibility?

    Also the pain is much worse with the Achilles. Hopefully Campbell can figure something out.

    Yes. I watched that and couldn't believe the toughness. I've torn both ACLs... cannot imagine kicking and pivoting.

    I still walked with a complete ruptured Achilles. Walked in the emergency room and told Dr. I thought I ruptured my Achilles. He said “you wouldn’t be able to walk if you ruptured your Achilles” Sent me home with some exercises to do. Went to different Dr. next day who looked at it in 3 seconds told me it was a complete rupture and need to schedule surgery ASAP.

    Is anybody else wondering if an ISU punter with a ruptured Achilles could STILL outpunt any of our punters?

    No. Because I already know it's a fact. At least until our Grad Xfer punter is officially on board.
