Watching the WR’s. Don’t know if it means anything but thought you might like to know.
Our guy on the inside. Nice intel bruh. Thanks.
Sounds like the TEs look like studs and the WR corps needs some help.
Great news. Hopefully he sticks with the Hawks and gets a good shot at contributing for 2 years!
who knew right? gotta find a way to work him in with the wideouts. cant pass up this chance.
Exactly. I was exactly supposed to be there but am stuck working. Total drag.
coaching buddy at the clinic or what?
Is it 2 years to play 1?
Can I just say I have a source?
This is what I have been told...
No 1 O and D looked really good and both lines looked good. No 2 offense did not. Concern at CB and WR. Petras can really sling it and Mansell has not looked at as good. I don’t want anyone to get carried away, just passing along what a little birdie told me.
dont out the source. gotta keep the humint network intact. good to know. Plus we talking bout one practice. we'll see how they look when the season starts.
Apparently Copeland is more ripped in person than he appears on TV.
Nice hearing the #1 O and D look really good. Excited about Petras
Stanley a 65 yd QB read for a td.
Lots of f words being used.
Defense blitzes and Mends drops a pick...more f words.
Thank you for the updates Jellyfish!!
Yes...thank you for the info....this thread is why I pay for this site...well mostly.
I was sent a couple of vids...very, very spirited practice. Pads popping and a lot of fire from the defense.
Now this is the type of thread that I come to this site for. Thanks for the updates!
It's obvious the source is Kirk Ferentz, I don't get why people keep bugging him.
AW checking out practice, gettin that football scent! Hope he decides he wants to join in the festivities.. did I hear even if he does stay at Iowa for football he won’t participate this spring??
2 year to play one at another FBS due to year of sitting out.
2 years to play 2 at FCS or Iowa. If you play another sport after 4 years of 1 at a school can play 1 year of something else. Like Timmy D coming back to run track for 1 year after football.
Is the coaches clinic this weekend? Weather sure didn't cooperate.
believe so. them nice facilities sho come in handy tho!
Petras is going to be a stud.
Thanks. I hope everyone made it in safely. And maes it home safely.
According to Jellyfish10, "Lots of 'F' words being used." I presume those would be
"F" words like...fabulous, fantastic, fervent, felicitous, fearless, first-class, flashy, flawless, fleet, focused, formidable, and fun? Fantastical...
But really, other "F" words, IMHO of course, have no more business on the football field than they do in the classroom. Teaching is teaching, and good coaching is teaching.
KF says he's not just building football players, he's building men. Well, maybe a ban on the infamous "F" word would be an effective building block in that process.
I had the misfortune of attending several football practices--all of which were open in those days--that were directed by short-term head coach Frank Lauterbur. His staff swore so much that it made Andrew Dice Clay blush.
I've played and I've coached, and I never found swearing helpful in either role. Like I said, the football field is just another classroom, and it should be treated as such...IMHO.
To any coaches who were at the clinic, your observations, opinions, insights would be very welcome. We are football starved here!
No and No.
This is funny.
Those "F" words were Fleck because he is on everyone's mind. They use Fleck to curse because they can sense the future.
Don't deny it either.
Linebacker? What can you say about linebacker? Is that the #2 fall off you are talking about?
I teach physics and engineering ... and "F" words are dropped in my classroom too. If language is used in a way that doesn't disrespect and/or disempower people ... but instead facilitates how students relate to their teachers/coaches ... then I don't give a rats ass if people drop expletives on the practice field OR the class-room.
Of course, my personal philosophy here is also part of the reason why I've never had the desire to teach anybody other than college students. There are few things more annoying than a parent with a corncob stuck too far up their anus - I sincerely feel for high school teachers who have to put up with overly-triggered parents.
LBs were Welch, Jones, and Colbert with Mends and Hockaday sprinkled in...got a bunch more info and will share later.
Btw, my ‘birdie’ talked to Wagner.
Kinda figured we would hear about Colbert even though he was not on the pre-Spring 2-deeps.
As long as your source is not CNN, it's probably credible. Lol
A well-placed f-bomb is a great and very effective teaching tool. I'm sure our staff knows how to use it properly.
