Cleveland Squares Off at QB

No not Derek v Brady. Ricky v Brian. While Cleveland football fans toil midst a QB controversy over who should start for an awful pro team, two Cleveland products squared off this past weekend in Big Ten play when Iowa played Michigan State. Brian Hoyer, the QB from MSU is a St. Ignatius grad, and Ricky Stanzi, the Sophomore Starter for the Hawkeyes is a former Lake Catholic Cougar. Hoyer's Spartans got the win, 16-13, despite the fact that Stanzi brought Iowa down to the 20 with 2 minutes to go. On a 4th and 2 from the 20, Kirk Ferenz decided to call a timeout and run a deep handoff play that snuffed out from the start. Should have let Stanzi throw it Kirk. Anyways, I watched the game at the bar in Madison WI, and it was a nice reprieve from the grind that is rooting for Cleveland pro teams, to see Cleveland represented on the gridiron well, and then to witness the Bucks walk out of Camp Randall with the win...makes me think that despite the fact that the Browns play here, we still have good football in this town.
