    Don’t get me wrong on the above. There’s definitely a time and place for set plays in the game, and Jake’s new offense seems to be more about flow and motion than rigid set pieces. I’m also not part of the “fire Jake” crowd. In UNI’s case, my take is “overcoached” relates more to how long it seems some of our more mediocre teams, or those that gelled really late, take to finally get the offensive and defensive schemes the staff wants to run. Seems like every year we hear about this, but with several players who were in the same system the year before. If they’re that complex, it may be time to tweak or rethink some things. It would be interesting to get an ex-players’ take on this, or from another coach. Those of us in the cheap seats can only speculate like arm chair QBs.

    A number of guys have come into the program with a very impressive HS resume and an ability to be a playmaker, only to seemingly regress during their time at UNI. Obviously there are other factors surrounding college kids but guys like Pickford, McCloud, Carlson, Friedman, Rank, McKowen all come to mind. There are countless others who I wouldn't say regressed but they didn't seem to improve at all either over the course of 4-5 yrs on campus.
    It seems like creativity and improvisation are coached out of players when they reach campus and some guys can adapt to that while others can't.
    A few of those guys you mentioned had some other issues -

    Pickford - injuries sophomore and junior years, playing out of position this year because 2 PGs are out
    McCloud - couldn't shoot to save his life. Teams would beg him to shoot the 3, which crowded the middle and wouldn't allow him to drive. After leaving spent 1 year at a D3 before giving up the game, not to mention the rift his dad send to have with coaches, I just don't think he enjoyed playing anymore tbh.
    Rank - was undersized at his position. The guy was tough nosed but just didn't really have a position imo.
    Friedman - never really seemed mobile enough to make the transition. You could say maybe that's on the coaching staff, but bigs are always a gamble.

    Brooks was so long ago I don't really recall his career that well. I will say, Carlson was a head scratcher for me. His sophomore postseason was crazy good, but maybe those few games were more him overachieving than the other times where h underachieving? Expectations were so high for him, it was very frustrating to watch his final 2 years here. We have had some, although not too many guys who didn't do much early then really played well at the end of their career - Singleton and Dahl come to mind.

Basketball is designed around athleticism, not necessarily the ability to remember and execute 400 set plays, like some kind of robot. Also, even in a normal year, Drake’s record wouldn’t be much different, since DD has been very good at molding his system around his recruits. Lack of Covid wouldn’t change that.

    Drake is combination of several things...

    1--He's got older guys in a year where that really, really matters. He also plays a style where you kind of just roll the ball out on offense, give Penn a ball screen and see what you get. If you look across the country the teams that are having the best years are the teams without much structure.

    2--Darian does a really nice job with his lineup combos. He consistently puts guys around Penn that feel the movement of the defense well and get open shots. He isn't Jake or Porter or Wardle yet but (if he stays) he's got a chance to get himself into that conversation with sustained success.

    3--They've played NOBODY. Missouri State is the best win(s) 310th schedule per KenPom. Their league schedule is also incredibly backloaded. They haven't seen Loyola or Bradley yet. We wouldn't be undefeated with the same schedule but I'm guessing we'd be 11-3 at worst even without AJ.

    And that may be the best summation that can be made of ANY sport, team, or coach. Good point.

    Put tonearm down on broken record NOW...coaches can only accomplish what they have in the tool bag.

    Hey, they did beat K-State! (who lost to Baylor by 48 points last night)

    Say what you will about the week schedule, but it's getting them props. They're right on the cusp of being ranked.

I'm not saying we can't have any strong matchups, but some gimmie games wouldn't have killed us, especially this year. 14-0 looks better than 4-10, no matter what. Even if it actually isn't (though this year, it's pretty safe to say that it is).
    Yea, scheduling send to have been a circus for every team this season. I agree, if it was a normal season we should have scheduled some easier games, but I think he would have. Marshall, Green Bay, New Mexico State, were some of the others we had scheduled. Plus we almost always have a low D1 game, like Morgan St or Tennessee Martin. IDK how much control we really had of the schedule this year.

    I think I read that Drake's average age on their team is 23.

    Not making excuses for letting them take us over so fast, but during a covid year age and experience has to be huge. Look at Duke and Kentucky struggling with young teams. Look at Iowa's success with experience.

    I always was hoping when we recruited AJ that another high major recruit would possibly follow. Also was hoping to get one when we were ranked 10th in the country with Tuttle going to two straight ncaa tourneys.

    Would we be better this year with the players we have if we ran the old defense first. Slow on offense style? (Not sure if we get Born as a recruit if we do play the slow down style?)

I think after he signed he only had 6 players that were going to return. He recruited hard each year since and after 2 1/2 years has a record of 58-24 while the Panthers are 45-34. What a change taking place here in Iowa in the MVC

    YEAH! Then maybe I'll have it verified that I'm who I think I am!
