Not trophy-size replicas. Actual size.
We HAVE to work on tackling this week. None of this arm tackling crap we were in the habit of against TCU. Hubert and Klein will run right through that.
Kansas State will probably be a top 5 team, and they will not turn the ball over 5 times. Our offense can't rely on our defense to win this game for us. We will win if we execute and perform our fundamentals properly.
Is the poor tackling due to the d line switching out so much and not letting the guys get into a groove?
Our poor tackling is due to poor fundamentals. Watch our linemen go after quarterbacks on the pass rush. They stand straight up and try to reach out and grab the quarterback instead of running through him. When we have a back in the backfield the only people who break down and tackle are Knott and Klein.
And forget this silliness about ISU having the best trio of lb's - the best trio is at KSU!!CBSSports.com ULive
I don't mind ISU being good as long as KSU is better. Which is the case. And besides ISU has wrestling - this is all we got.
Alright, so I'm not the only one that thought our tackling was a bit sloppy. I know we can win this game, but both our offense and defense have to show up.
KSU might even be ranked 3rd now when they come rolling in to Ames.
1. Alabama won't drop on a bye
2. Oregon is taking care of washington so far
3-5 all lost
6. South Carolina destroyed georgia. They've got the #3 spot locked up.
#7 and #8 were KSU and WVU (one in one poll, one in another). While KSU could get the #4 spot, the win over UT is a much bigger win, so i'd bet they'll get the 4 slot in one, and probably both polls. KSU will likely get the #5 spot. And then there's always the wild card... will Notre Dame move up more than they deserve or will Florida get a large bump thanks to their victory over LSU, and either pass KSU?
Jeremiah George will get a lot of playing time this week. I hope he is ready to bring it this week, lets see how far you've come young man. If he plays great I like our chances.
Gonna be tough. Klien's arm doesn't scare me at ALL. I just hope KSU doesn't pound it on us all day long.
