I never expected the offense to scorch every team. That said, when we started getting up on NDSU, Kent State and Army, you should have started the trial and error process.
I know Herman is a genius. Best hire this school has had in the past few years, IMHO. I don't toss around the term genius very loosely, either.
Also, as I have previously stated, I completely value everyone's take on here. We clearly all have passion. True fans, otherwise we wouldn't be on a site that holds the term fanatic in the actual web address.
I won't drink the Kool-Aid that some do on here. I didn't when I wrote for The Daily, and I won't start now. That said, I like the foundation that has been laid. This year is exciting. The next two could be a bit of rough salining. The future looks as bright to me, as it has during any period, though.:smile:
Remember what happened when Chase Daniel started playing for Missouri his freshman year? By the time he was a senior he had been running basiccialy the spread offense for 8 years. The timing was awesome and the reason that MU was so good.
I look at it making ISU better, Herman knowing what he's doing, and winning more games, thanks OP
It is good info and I noted that improving talent is always a good thing.
The best implication I take from this is that Herman plans to be here for a while. We all know he will some day leave for greener pastures, I just hope it's in 5 years, not five months.
After Herman was hired i patrolled some Rice forums to get their thoughts on how good of a coordinator he is.
As well as he was liked they somewhat felt he was a little slow or stubborn to really grasp the best way to use the weapons at his disposal. They had mentioned a few obvious formations he should have run at rice much earlier during his tenure there. Such as getting Jarrett Dillard alone on 1 side of the formation and bunch on the other to exploit more of a 1-1 situation for their best play maker.
Ive gotten the feeling that he took a while to finally believe the run game is the bread and butter for ISU. Of course there's still some situations the last 2 games where it feels the run game gets put on the back burner.
Robinson carried the rock 25 or so times last week which was probably a career high, so i salute him for that game plan.
