i feel soo bad for that kid!! the coach did everything right. made sure his kicker is smiling and not thinking down on himself - nothing mattered! when you have a bad kicker you JUST DO NOT win close games!!!
I hope ISU never again forgets the lesson that having quality FG kicker and P is worth spending 3-4 schollies out of 85.
This +1000. IMO, along with losing some really good assistant coaches, was the beginning of the end for McCarney. I don't think it's too much of a stretch to write that if we had a good kicker who could have made those kicks against Mizzou in '04 and Kansas in '05 that D Mac could still be a head coach today if he had been able to sustain the success that winning those games would have given us.
Are we seriously dogging a guy that no longer plays for our program but did put it his time and put his ego out there on the line for us week in week out and basically beat Iowa himself? Bygones anyone?? Apparently we are now so elite our ex-players can be trashed to make a point.
