Honestly, without reading through all four pages, I didn't see any lack of heart yesterday while sitting in the stands at Kinnick. Neither did my brother, a big Hawkeye fan, who commented a couple times that Iowa State clearly never gave up.
I saw a team that was completely overmatched in line play on both sides of the ball, and Iowa just took them out of whatever game plan they had. When you can't make a third down stop and your team is down 21-0 after running 6 offensive plays, there's not much to do except tip your cap. Iowa is going to be a very good team. ISU will be fine, it's one game. Time to beat K-State.
We ended up showing some heart later on, but we were sleepwalking early on.
Iowa is definitely a lot better, and we knew that going into it, but our guys were just ROLLED.
In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
Pretty easy to judge people just like I'm doing with you and not knowing you.
Austin plays with heart, to much, he forces passes because he wants to win.
Did you know that no COACH has a play book filled with calls like.....
Interception on the 2 yd line, ready break!
Drop pass, fly route, left on two ready break!
Or better yet the all time favorite, Fumble on the power off tackle left, ready break.
How am I judging AA as a person. Have you ever saw me rip him as a person. .
If you read my other posts you will see I have said Iowa was the better team. But yes I have been hard on AA, he is a 5h year player starting his third year at QB making freshman mistakes. The bottom line is winning and making plays at this level. ISU doest pay coaches to play the nicest player, they pay them to play the players that can get the job done. If we want to play players because of what year they are and because it is their turn, why did we fire Mac. Every player should want to win on that team, if not they shouldnt be on the team. Everyone makes mistakes, but the same mistake time and time again gets old.
