I am not a coach, yeah, it's obvious, but seriously, you can't argue we had to sell out on the run for the last half of the 4th quarter and instead, they ran the ******* ball down our throats.
The good thing is, I feel so much better about our offense, it's crazy. I am impressed with how our offense has played this year. And boom, here we go again, offense has a good game and the D pisses it down it's leg.
I'm not calling for anyone's head, just voicing my frustrations. Why can't we put a complete game together that isn't Kansas this year. Solid D, good Offense.
Proud of my Cyclones. Austin is just a speed freak, and they somehow contained him for most of the game. I feel bad for Woodie, but the hat was right on the ball.
I guess a loss really brings out the ******* idiots on here. Those of you wanting to crucify Woody in here ought to just quit being ISU fans. Football is a team sport, the team lost this one.
There better be a davenport being doused with gasoline in Ames now. Light em up.
Upsides to this game:
1. Fans stayed in it until the end and got louder in the 2nd half.
2. We have a QB who can make accurate passes, moves well, and can lead a sustained drive when it matters.
3. I'd rather we were going to the Holiday but now our bowl destination will be easier to get to - airfare to San Diego was gonna be $600+.
4. We saw a very exciting, memorable game that builds the character of the team.
Character is over-rated. Just win baby.
ISU football has character oozing out of its pores. I watched 12 years of Danny Mac trying to win by on 3 points so he could be "classy" in the good 'ol boys coaching club and get his next gig lined up. I've had decades of our basketball coaches being classy while Lawrence-resident referees give every call to our opponents(with exception of Johnny and Larry).
I want to win a bowl game and I want to win big time. Look at our last decade of bowls....all painfully close stressful messes, win or lose. I want to woodshed someone.
I'm not understanding the "offense had a good game" crowd. Anyone care to explain this to me. 24 points against one of the worst defenses in the conference isn't cutting it.
Looking for rule clarification here. The guy I was watching the game with and I were both surprised on the kick-off where our kickoff landed in the endzone, bounced, but no one from WVA attempted to go for the ball. I was always taught that unless the ball goes out of bounds, it's a free ball, but the refs blew it dead like it was a punt into the endzone. Is it an Auto touchback in the endzone? I always thought it was a free ball until someone took possession or it went out of bounds.
I thought Sam did fine......I always thought the KU game was just one of those exceptional performances (and what happens when you so dramatically change the paradigmn that the other teams' coaches have been prepping their players for).....but I still would have liked to seen Steel get a series to play tonight. Sam is not THAT much better, as evidenced by our loss. I still hope he gets snaps in the bowl game.
