He goes on to say in the comment section of his post that it was his knee and he wasn't aware he needed surgery until two weeks ago.

Everybody loses guys...hope this trend ends for Iowa.

Saw that NW lost their only returning veteran d-tackle yesterday...Sean McEvilly is done for the year also.

They are much thinner than Iowa at that position group.  Two newbies are making their first start vs Cal on Saturday.

Looking forward to seeing Jaleel Johnson.  As they say at Iowa:  "Next man in".

More playing time for Jaleel this year, means he'll be better next year, and with Cooper coming back, a good nucleus to build around.

That's a bad deal.  Cooper looked like he could have pushed Trinca Pasat and Davis for a starting role this season; he would have been in rotation no matter what.

Any word if he would be eligible for a medical redshirt and a 6th year down the road?

Cooper will be a loss this season, but will be a blessing for one more year down the road. Fortunately, we are deep at DT.

Could be wrong, but didn't Cooper play as a true freshman? He should have a redshirt year left if that's the case.

2011 redshirt....played in 2012 and 2013....will be a senior when he plays again in 2015.

There is still hope that he could apply for a sixth year for medical reasons.  I think he would have a good shot at getting approved.

If he gets the 6th year redshirt it will be a salty defense for the next 3 years I think, with the way the classes are balanced.

If Coop gets the deserved medical redshirt, Iowa will have Johnson, Faith, Cooper,Gressel and Bazata inside at D-tackle for 2015, and 2016....nice core group.

Add in d-ends like Matt Nelson, Hendricks and Terrance Harris, and we have the makings of a nice d-line for the next three years.

An awesome goal line defensive group for sure. I know Faith was looked at as a d-end.  Is there anyone else in the D-tackle group that potentially could slide outside?  I like the potential at D-end, but before the season starts in 2014 I like the experience for 2016 at tackle.  It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.
