Still laughing.

(Edit: Okay, not laughing any more. And now I feel bad because no matter the odds of it happening at the same position, it seriously sucks for the player and I wish him a full and speedy recovery)

  3 RB ACL's ago you had to feel bad for them , now this is just getting ridiculous. It's got to be an inside job! Some kid who was buried on the depth chart is systematically eleminating his competition with a bat and a cleverly hidden saw

this has gone beyond the realm of comical. at this point i just feel bad for iowa. they might be getting to the point where vandenberg has to hand it off to himself on run plays. i mean who else does he have left to hand it off to?

According to HawkeyeNation, it was  the final play of the scrimmage actually, so not only is AIRBHG, well, angry, he has definite poetic flair. Depthwise, it leaves them with Damon Bullock, a guy who splits time at linebacker and air, I think. Still, you hate to see athletes go down with injuries which, depending on the severity, could significantly alter their football career.

That being said, they are one more visit from  AIRBHG away from having to pass on 3rd and 1, or if not this, then Vandenberg can pick up some of the rushing game. His 78 attempts for 61 yards last year sounds very promising

So you're a free safety? We want you to play in the deep spot on the field, overlooking all the other players so you can freely shift in the direction the play is flowing and go get the ball even if it for some reason simply handed off to you sort of...that's why we want you to play at Iowa. You're the kinda kid that goes and gets the ball. We DEFINITELY need more kids like you on our team...in a hurry.

When I read the title I thought for sure that the OP had simply forgotten that this had been posted a few weeks ago. Then I clicked on the thread and boy was I wrong. I feel bad for all these guys getting injured, but the running back situation at Iowa has become comical.
