    Well I can't believe noboady has started a topic on this wonderful CB already so I'll be the one to do so. Adam is an extremly talented starting CB for Iowa and the first in the Big 10 since Dustin Fox. Shada has great size at 6'1 185 lbs and is a junior. As a nickleback last year with a couple start he had 3 picks.

    Here's his full bio: http://hawkeyesports.cstv.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/shada_adam 00.html

    From what I saw of the Ohio St. game, he looked like he did a decent job keeping Ginn and Gonzalez in check. It seemed that Troy Smith was picking on the other corner more. I don't know, maybe somebody who caught more of the game could confirm that.

    That's what it seemed like to me also. He's active in run support too.

    Yeah I did not see Shada get burner once. Now that I know he's the permanente starter I'll definitly be keeping an eye on him everytime I see Iowa on t.v.

    i've talked about him quite a bit on the white DBs thread... check it out. he's very hard-nosed, especially for a corner. he did an exceptional job against OSU, and the Buckeyes were indeed going away from him. he has good size and speed, and we'll just have to wait and see what happens with him in the future...

    Adam had a 98-yard interception return for a TD last week against Purdue. [​IMG] here's the video courtesy of YouTube.

    also, he's getting some nice pub, and he sounds like a very confident player...

    Gee Shada has some detractors I wonder why? If he was a black CB they'd be giving him all the benefit of the doubt in the world. But that's the life of being a white CB you got a short leesh and little room for error.
