Hawkeye Football legend Chuck Long  weighed on the current quarterback situation at Iowa. Long who is also at Big Ten Network football analyst says CJ Beathard has an impressive throwing arm---but he can understand why Kirk Ferentz and the Iowa coaches had a difficult decision to make because Jake Rudock is also a good quarterback and person.

 

 

 

 

Chuck Long said, "CJ I saw him last week and he can throw the football he has arm talent and now he is going to go from 20 percent to 80 to 90 percent of the reps and all of those reps in the spring and the fall is going to go to benefit him. It will make him better. The pressure changes though he goes from competing with Jake Rudock for the starting job--now the pressure shifts a little bit he's the guy you have the weight of the program on your shoulders you have to learn how to prepare to be the starter a lot of guys depending on you there is little different pressure on CJ moving forward."
