    2010 Offense

    QUARTERBACK
    Ricky Stanzi, rSR; James Vandenberg, rSO; John Wienke, rSO; AJ Derby, FR
    Stanzi (92OVR) is the clear-cut #1 as we enter the 2010 season. The redshirt senior from Mentor, OH took over the reins of the Iowa offense during the 2008 season and enters his senior season with a career mark of 14-4, including 2 bowl wins. Stanzi will be backed up by a pair of redshirt sophomores in James Vandenberg (84OVR) and John Wienke (80OVR). Freshman AJ Derby (74OVR) is a 4-star dual threat recruit from nearby City High and will likely be redshirted this season.

    RUNNING BACK
    Jewel Hampton, rSO; Brandon Wegher, SO; Adam Robinson, rSO; Paki O'Meara, rSR; Marcus Coker, FR
    Brett Morse, rSR (FB)
    Jewel Hampton (93OVR) headlines a log jam of sophomore running backs on the Iowa roster. Brandon Wegher (89OVR) and Adam Robinson (98OVR) round out the talented trio. Hampton will get the nod early, but everyone is keeping a close eye on the development of Wegher and Robinson. O'Meara (78OVR) is a former walk-on and Marcus Coker (78OVR) is another talented freshman who will likely redshirt this year. Redshirt senior Brett Morse (80OVR) is the only fullback on the roster.

    WIDE RECEIVER
    Paul Chaney Jr, rSR; Derrell Johnson-Koulianos, rSR; Colin Sandeman, SR; Marvin McNutt, rJR; Keenan Davis, rSO; Don Nordmann, rSR; Jordan Cotton, rFR; Kevonte Martin-Manley, FR; Don Shumpert, FR
    Chaney, Jr (89OVR) and DJK (89OVR) have a slight edge over fellow senior Colin Sandeman (88OVR), but all 3 are expected to see significant playing time. Former QB Marvin McNutt (86OVR) and rSO Keenan Davis (82OVR) are both big, physical receivers. The younger group of Cotton (78OVR), Martin-Manley (76OVR) and Shumpert (65OVR) are still in the developmental stages of their careers. Martin-Manley and Shumpert will most likely redshirt in 2010.

    TIGHT END
    Allen Reisner, SR; Brad Herman, rJR; CJ Fiedorowicz, FR
    Reisner (88OVR) started seeing playing time as a true freshmen and is primed for his senior season. Herman (84OVR) is a solid #2 and Fiedorowicz (76OVR) is a highly touted recruit who could see immediate playing time.

    OFFENSIVE LINE
    T - Riley Reiff, rSO; Markus Zusevics, rJR; Nolan MacMillan, rFR; Brandon Scherff, FR; Casey McMillan, rSO; Matt Tobin, rSO
    G - Julian Vandervelde, rSR; Kyle Haganman, rSR; Brett VanSloten, rFR; Adam Gettis, rJR; Andrew Donnal, FR
    C - James Ferentz, rSO; Josh Koeppel, rSR
    Left to Right - Reiff (96OVR), Vandervelde (87OVR), Ferentz (90OVR), Haganman (82OVR) and Zusevics (84OVR) are pretty solid. Reiff is the headliner. He and Ferentz are both redshirts sophs. The core group of #2s has potential to be solid as well. Need to continually recruit and develop young talent in the trenches.

    2010 Defense

    DEFENSIVE LINE
    DE - Adrian Clayborn, rSR; Broderick Binns, rJR; Lebron Daniel, rJR; Dominic Alvis, rFR; Lousi Trina-Pasat, FR
    DT - Christian Ballard, rSR; Karl Klug, rSR; Mike Daniels, rJR; Carl Davis, FR; Anthony Ferguson, FR
    Left to Right - Clayborn (88OVR), Ballard (91OVR), Klug (87OVR) and Binns (84OVR) are solid. Clayborn is a playmaker off of the edge. Ballard is an athletic big guy in the middle. Daniel (80OVR) and Daniels (85OVR) provide decent depth on the edge and in the middle respectively, but after those two the names are young and developmental at best.

    LINEBACKERS
    OLB - Jeremiha Hunter, rSR; Tyler Nielsen, rJR; Christian Kirksey, FR; Anthony Hitchens, FR; Lance Tillison, rJR
    MLB - Jeff Tarpinian, rSR; James Morris, FR; Bruce Davis, rJR; Troy Johnson, rSR
    Hunter (90OVR) and Nielsen (90OVR) are the starters on the outside with highly touted freshmen Kirksey (84OVR) and Hitchens (76OVR) viewed as the future. Tarpinian (88OVR) will call the signals in the middle with another highly touted freshman, James Morris (88OVR) looking over his shoulder.

    DEFENSIVE BACKS
    CB - Shaun Prater, rJR; Jordan Bernstine, rJR; William Lowe, rJR; Micah Hyde, rSO; Greg Castillo, rSO' BJ Lowery, FR
    FS - Brett Greenwood, rSR; Jack Swanson, rSO
    SS - Tyler Sash, rJR; Tom Donatell, rJR; Tanner Miller, FR
    Tyler Sash (96OVR) enjoyed a breakout sophomore campaign and is a definite playmaker from his SS spot. Redshirt senior Brett Greenwood (88OVR) flanks him at FS. They will be backed up by rJR Donatell (68OVR) and rSO Swanson (88OVR) respectively. Juniors Prater (86OVR) and Bernstine (82OVR) hold down the corner spots with Lowe (78OVR) and Hyde (78OVR) waiting in the wings. Freshmen Lowery (72OVR) and Miller (82OVR) will most likely redshirt.

    That's kind of the preview for 2010. Expectations for the Hawks were SKY HIGH following an 11-2 campaign capped by a 24-14 Orange Bowl victory over Georgia Tech and #7 ranking. With Stanzi, Clayborn, DJK, Sash, McNutt, all returning, preseason polls had Iowa as high as #9 entering the season. I firmly believe that those expectations are/were reflected in the OVRs given to the Iowa roster by EA Sports.

    In reality, the 2010 team underachieved...going just 7-5 overall and 4-4 in the Big Ten before earning an 8th victory over Missouri in the Insight Bowl. Looking forward to seeing how things play out in this simulation. Thanks in advance to those that are following along. The Front Page includes some actual Iowa Hawkeye history for those interested in that. I will incorporate Dynasty stuff as it happens.

    Let the journey begin...

    2010 - Game 1: Eastern Illinois

    Hawks, Stanzi Sharp in 2010 Opener...


    Iowa City - The #10 ranked Iowa Hawkeyes wasted little time collecting their first victory of 2010 as they downed the Eastern Illinois Panthers 49-7 in today's season opener at Kinnick Stadium. Ricky Stanzi didn't show the slightest bit of off-season rust as the senior quarterback connected on 23 of 31 passes for 336 yards and 6 TDs, 3 to tight end Allen Reisner, in the blowout victory. Reisner hauled in scoring strikes of 13, 4 and 6 yards on the afternoon. Running back Brandon Wegher led all receivers with 128 yards on 6 catches. The junior also carried the ball 14 times for 118 yards. Outside linebacker Tyler Nielsen led a balanced defensive effort with 4 tackles, 3 for loss, 1 sack and an interception.

    2010 - Game 2: Iowa State

    Defense, Strong 2nd Half Power Hawks Past Cyclones 55-16



    Iowa City - In-state rival Iowa State wasn't just going to hand the Cy-Hawk Trophy over to the highly rated Hawks, and the Cyclones actually had 1st half leads of 7-0 and 14-10 before fading in the 2nd half. Ricky Stanzi, fresh off his 6 TD performance in the season opener, appeared somewhat mortal only completing 11 of 26 passes for 150 yards. Three of his completions were for TDs however, 2 of which were to Derrell Johnson-Koulianos who led all receivers with 119 yards on 8 catches.

    Lost in the celebration of last week's win over Eastern Illinois was the fact that starting running back Jewel Hampton suffered a broken ankle and is expected to be out 10 weeks. Fellow sophomore Brandon Wegher replaced Hampton in the starting lineup and paced the Hawkeye rushing attack with 87 yards on 13 carries. Outside linebacker Tyler Nielsen led the defense with 10 stops and an interception return for a TD. Fellow outside backer Jeremiha Hunter also added an interception return and 5 tackles.

    2010 - Game 3: Arizona

    #7Hawks Pounce on Arizona, Down Wildcats 40-14



    Tucson - Iowa jumped on Arizona with 10 1st quarter points and built a commanding 26-0 lead in the dessert before Arizona cracked the scoreboard late in the 3rd. Ricky Stanzi continued to be efficient and steady throwing for 237 yards and 3 TDs on 19 of 30 passing. DJK had 7 catches for 77 yards and a score while Marvin McNutt grabbed 6 balls for 76 yards and a pair of TDs. Brandon Wegher, filling in for the injured Jewel Hampton, added 104 rushing yards and a TD on 22 carries. Adrian Clayborn led an aggressive, suffocating defense with 10 tackles (6 for loss) and 2 sacks. The 3-0 Hawks return home next week to face Ball State before opening Big10 conference play.

    2010 - Game 4: Ball State

    Iowa Too Much for Ball State



    Iowa City - #6 Iowa wrapped up a perfect non-conference slate today, running its season record to 4-0, with a 35-7 win over Ball State today at Kinnick Stadium. Led by Ricky Stanzi's 253 yards passing and another 108 yards rushing from Adam Robinson, the Hawkeye offense built a commanding 35-0 lead before Ball State picked up a late 4th quarter score to avoid the shutout. Jeff Tarpinian spearheaded the Hawkeye defense with 6 tackles and a sack.

    Iowa opens Big10 conference play next week when it plays host to #14 Penn State. To this point in the season, the only negatives I can see are significant injuries to Jewel Hampton (Broken Ankle) and Derrell Johnson-Koulianos (Abdominal Tear). Those two guys were/are our most explosive offensive weapons and will miss the next 8 and 10 weeks respectively.
