08:14 AM ET 08.12 | Adrian Clayborn probably could have left Iowa after a stellar season, but the 6-foot-4, 285-pound defensive end "with a raging mop of dreadlocks" chose to return. "I'm just finishing what I started," Clayborn said. "I knew if I came back I'd have a better chance of being ready. I could have left but wouldn't have been true to myself." Clayborn took a giant step last season with his 11 1/2 sacks and Orange Bowl MVP award. ... The interest is sure to grow if Clayborn matches his production of last season. Some early NFL mock drafts project him as a middle first-round pick, and he has even generated mentions as a Heisman Trophy candidate with multiple Facebook groups dedicated to his promotion.

Sorry but if Suh (sp?) did not get a Heisman I doubt he will.

Looking at the picture, I thought this article was about that Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker who does the shampoo commercials.

Hayden Frye got permission to make the Iowa uniforms like the Steelers.

BMOC is a lot better than being UMOC!

Any hawkeye fans out there?

"Yo, Adrian"....Good move. There were four, maybe more, other DEs ahead of you in this last draft. Smart move for a lot of reasons.

Iowa has RAGBRAI. The single greatest moving pedal-powered party on the planet.

Good for them. Everyone needs to hang their hat on something.

I believe Kansas has the largest ball of Twine.

Not sure why I gave twine a "T". Maybe it's like Truth v truth. Maybe Mizzou has the largest ball of twine.

It's **** City, KS vs Darwin, MN. Both claim to be home to the world's largest ball of twine (and still growing!).

Who's got all the Twine then?

Heisman chances will be gone after the Buckeyes leave town in week 11.
