There was a time when Lolo couldn't lose, at the Drake Relays. Now, she can't seem to win. Another 2nd place finish makes it three years without a victory for the former #1-ranked hurdler in the world. She said, after the race, that she probably won't be back next season, due to the 2012 London Olympics.
The Hawkeyes tied a school record (set in 2009) with a half-dozen draftees, this week. That just goes to show just how badly the 2010 team underachieved. I said, from day one, that this was the most talented Hawkeye team I had ever seen, and despite their 8-5 record, I'm sticking to my guns. The only difference between 2009, and 2010, is a little bit of luck.
DJK went undrafted, much to the surprise of no one. He'll get his chance as an undrafted free agent.
I'm not sold on Adrian Clayborn being a top-notch defensive lineman, in the NFL. I hope he proves me wrong.
Iowa State didn't have a single draft pick. That fact wasn't lost on former Hawkeye Brandon Myers. The Raiders tight end tweeted "How many cyclones got drafted this year?" ... Yes, it's a slap in the face, but it goes to show what kind of a job Paul Rhoads is doing. He took a team with very little talent, and won 12 games in two years. That's pretty good.
I'm not going to say the Iowa Barnstormers have a bad defense -- because they don't have one. Iowa gave up 76 points to the, previously 1-6, Philadelphia Soul. The Stormers have now lost 4 straight. They're 2-6 on the year.
To add injury to insult, Barnstormers head coach John Gregory got his headset cleaned. The 72-year-old got run over in the 2nd quarter. Then, at halftime, TV cameras caught him yelling at the sideline reporter to hurry up. Ouchy.
Maybe they should've put in PA guy, Scott Casber. Even after calling the Energy game, Friday night, he seemed to be the only guy showing any excitement.
