Just heard on the radio over here in Iowa that Jordan Canzeri, the top RB on the Iowa depth chart, has a torn ACL. He is having an MRI done, however the preliminary report is that he's out for the year. Spring seems soon for this to start.
OT-AIRBHG Strikes Swiftly (Possibly)
What's super-terrifying is that there are two of them on twitter. I fear one will feel there isn't enough to for two of them to do, and will turn his vengeful eyes eastward.
That's just getting ridiculous. Quite the streak.
Now there's a program where a top... or even a solid high school running back could see immediate playing time if he commits. Wow, talk about bad luck.
He could also see his knee cap sticking out of his thigh. Risky commitment.
Solid? I think Iowa would take anyone who's willing at this point
You gotta feel bad for these kids and the program. AIRBHG is real.
They should nix the RB position from their playbook:
called it "back running" or "back tail" they could throw AIRBHG off the scent for a season or two. Thank me later Coach Ferentz.
They're gonna start listing a surprising number of punters...
The fact that it seemingly continues to happen to them makes me question the effectiveness of 1) how they run their practices or 2) their trainers. Sure, injuries happen in football. But when seeing a trend like this it seems like there has to be some kind of rational explanation.
Well, not all the casualties have been due to injury.
How is this even possible at this point? Ridiculous.
Wow, there has to be some way to use this misfortune for good. Maybe nix capital punishment in Texas and force those on death row to play RB at Iowa?
But many people on death row in Texas are completely innocent.
think they'd definitely take a "knee cap sticking out of their thigh" over the alternative? Hell, I bet the actual guilty ones would, too.
They picked up a pretty big RB recruit in this last class. I can't remember his name, but we were after him too, for a while at least. He'll get a shot I'm sure.
Pretty sure that's the cancer survivor whose house burned down. AIRBHG knew.
He found a RB who's pre-disastered.
Hopefully he has better luck. He already beat cancer, hopefully he can stay healthy.
Iowa and Purdue's offensive skill players can be friends
If I were a RB recruit I'd be legitmately scared of going there at this point.
Has Tanya Harding been hanging around Iowa's practice facilities?
At what point does it become a realistic option to just have some backup RB each year that's named as the "starting RB" just to throw AIRBHG off the scent of the real starter?
I think Iowa should have gone hard after Mike Leach. Then this wouldn't be such a problem.
But they would probably have a bunch of running backs locked in electrical closets
And pirate paraphernalia all over campus...
Here's the update from Twitter:
How many have they lost over the years? Anybody got the numbers. Thoughts and prayers for their knees.
Change the turf on the field. New cleats for everyone. No RB direction changes during practice.
This was already nuts. I don't know if I have a word to describe it at this point.
Kirk Ferentz sacrifices RB's to AIRBHG! The only year they missed a bowl game since 2001 was 2007! Correlation implies causation! I love exclamation points!
That was EIGHT running backs. Currently we have 6 running backs and 2 full backs on our spring roster
Damn, that's just downright crazy shit right there.
Airbhg has a twitter account, has had one for a while. @airbgh of course. Look it up. He's been mocking running backs for a while... and posting some other juvenile things. Apparently, AIRBHG is a teenager or hasn't outgrown his adolescence, and acts like a child. Who knew he was a Sparty?
