Ricky Stanzi

Alright, here is the lowdown on Ricky Stanzi.

Stanzi took over for then starter Jake Christensen in 2008 in a blowout game and stole the job from him for the rest of the season.  Here are his stats for the 2008 season (13 games).

Completions: 150

Attempts: 254

1956 yards

7.7 yards/attempt

14 TD's

9 INT's

150.5 yds/game

Follow me through the jump! (couldn't wait to say that)

In 2009, Stanzi lead my Hawkeyes out to a 9-0 start including wins @ Penn State, Michigan, last second win over Michigan State. He was injured in the loss to Northwestern but returned nicely in the Orange Bowl victory over Georgia Tech. He did throw 4 pick sixes in 2009, however.

Here are his stats for the 2009 season (11 games)

Completions: 171

Attempts: 304

2417 Yards

17 TD's

15 INT's

In 2010, Hawkeyes started off 6-2, but lost 3 out of their last 4 games. Stanzi had a much better season though.

Completions: 221

Attempts: 345

3004 Yards

25 TD's

4 INT's

231.1 Yards/Game

Overall summary, Stanzi is a quarterback who knows how to win and manage the game. (He's Vince and Kerry all in one!) He struggled with leading his receiver in 2009, which is why he threw so many pick sixes, but corrected that problem in 2010. It's hard to tell at this point if he would make a good NFL quarterback because his arm strength is average at best, but he has such great touch on his passes. I think just bulking up a little would improve his strength. His overall record of 26-9 at Iowa speaks for itself.

Hope this helps. Any other questions are welcomed.
