The last few years I've watched the "experts" pick Iowa to be a second-tier team and they've been wrong EVERY time. Now, the "BETTER" (more "gifted") players are "recruited" by Michigan & Ohio State but the Iowa coaching staff
"targets" the kind of players that THEY want. IOWA-type players. Ones that have the right toughness, attitude, and play-making ability. ...And it seems to be working.
My point. Denny Green is "acquiring" the type of players he believes will succeed. His "track record" indicates that he has a pretty good feel for how to put together a competitive team. We may question "this" move & "that" move but it'd be hard NOT to acknowledge that this team is better than it was. ...And is continuing to get better. As I said before in an earlier "post"--I'm just ENJOYIN' the ride. GO CARDS!!
