"I think it's really unusual," Kirk Ferentz said of Tate Forcier's quick transition. "It's a huge adjustment. So a guy with that little experience, 15 days of spring ball really isn't that much for him to be doing what he's doing. (It) is really impressive, and he's given the whole team a lift.

"He's very aware, (has) great presence out there, great feel, and he is a playmaker. He can improvise, which is a sign of a good quarterback. He can get out of trouble with his feet and certainly can hurt you with his throwing and has done that.

"I think the most impressive thing is just his demeanor out there. He'll improvise, but it seems he has a good knack, a good instinct, and that's what good quarterbacks have."

Forcier's high school coach said Forcier was never nervous, even in big high school games. "You never saw it in his eyes," he said.

"Tate is an interesting guy," senior Mark Ortmann said. "You look at him, and he has the same facial expressions on the sidelines no matter the situation. I think that's one of the most impressive things about him—he doesn't let the pressure get to him."
