QUICK HIT: Hawkeyes Leadership Group
By Joe Quinn (@joequinnshow)
Well, since we're officially in the "silly season," and its always fun to read into stuff like this, here we go:
FACT: The Iowa Hawkeyes are yet to name a starting QB for the 2013 season
FACT: There are three likely candidates - Jake Rudock, Cody Sokol, and CJ Beathard
FACT: The Hawkeyes announced their 2013 "leadership group" today
FACT: Players are selected to this group by TEAM VOTE.
FACT: 2 of those 3 QB's were in that group:
The 2013 Hawkeye Leadership Group includes:
C.J. Beathard QB Redshirt Freshman
Austin Blythe OL Sophomore
Anthony Hitchens LB Senior
Jordan Lomax DB Sophomore
B.J. Lowery DB Senior
Kevonte Martin-Manley WR Junior
James Morris LB Senior
Drew Ott DL Sophomore
Jake Rudock QB Sophomore
Brandon Scherff OL Junior
Brett Van Sloten OL Senior
Ryan Ward OL Redshirt Freshman
Mark Weisman RB Junior
FACT?: Becuase both Rudock and Beathard are on the list, one of those two has to be the guy, right? Teammates seem to have confidence in these two!
FACT?: Or maybe because Sokol isn't on the list, that means he's clearly the choice - more time to focus on game to game stuff....but then why didn't his team mates vote him on to the leadership group?
FACT???: Does this mean anything at all? I mean, you've gotta have at least one QB on the list, why not two?
FACT????: Does this mean even the guys on the team don't have a firm grasp at who will be under center at this point?
INDISPUTABLE FACT: We still have a QB battle in Iowa City.
