definitely an improvement over a couple years ago.. still not used to only seeing 10 teams on the list though
Nice... Think I'm most excited about seeing our defense take the field this fall.
If we can get the safety position figured out, the 2011 defense could be very good.
see, that's not necessarily a good thing.
Did we make more tackles because opposing teams ran more offensive plays?
Go Clones- Good pub @ #3 there in Conference. Ubben has given us some love. Time for this team to finish in the top half and make noise this year.
I would like to see the offense in the top 3 also.
When our defense is always on the field, there is a good chance we will make more tackles. When we are putting up 50 points and we still are 3rd in this category, i'll be impressed.
Kind of upset I thought we were a way better tackling team than Texas. Actually Texas is way to high. Of the games I remember the longhorns had several missed tackles.
I'm pretty sure this is just a ranking of total number of tackles from guys who return this year. I don't think this is really a ranking of who he views as the best tacklers. K-State's defense was as bad if not worse than ours last year, but aparently they have a lot of their leading tacklers coming back, as do we.
This is what it has come to - bragging about being in the top 30% of the conference in an irrelevant statistic.
All I'm asking for is an undefeated season so we Cyclone fans don't have to hang our hats on meaningless statistics - IS THAT TOO MUCH TO ASK???
At least we'll never be out of the Top 10 for any Big 12 stats from now on :jimlad:
