With the season fast approaching, it's time to take a look at Iowa's schedule and profile one opposing player who could be an important factor in each game.  

Date:  September 10

Team:  Iowa State

Player:  Jake Knott


What you need to know:

Who is this jabroni?

He's a 6-2, 243 lb junior linebacker from Waukee, IA.

What has he accomplished?

Recorded 130 tackles last year, good enough for 2nd in the Big 12 and 12th in the nation with nearly 11 per game.  Garnered 2nd team All Big 12 accolades and honorable mention for Big 12 Defensive POY.

Why should you be concerned about him?

Why should you not be worried about him?

What is the most likely outcome?

Nolan MacMillan spots him prancing around like a headless chicken on one of Iowa's nine end-arounds and decides to channel Marshall Yanda and plant him so fucking deep into the turf.... 


.......that his head pops out in China. 


(You see, because China is on the other side of the world.)


Final Stat Line:  1 solo tackle and 15+ pile-jumps


*Probably a different Jake Knott.
