WHAT'S SO SPECIAL ABOUT BRANDON SCHERFF?
Scherff arrived at Iowa as a lightly-recruited offensive line prospect; he leaves as one of the most dominant and most decorated offensive linemen in the history of the program. He was named to a litany of All-America teams this season and won the Outland Trophy (awarded to the most outstanding interior lineman in the nation). He was a joy to watch and his development at Iowa was nothing short of remarkable. He was unanimously hailed as a great teammate. He was incredibly tough -- maybe too tough for his own good. He left a game against Ball State with a knee injury, had surgery the next day... and was back playing the following Saturday. How do you even wrap your head around something like that? You can't ask for much more out of an offensive lineman in college than what Scherff gave Iowa fans over the last four years. We won't soon forget him at Iowa.
