A Rob can change directions on muddy field - our only back. Hawks tacklers stay in lanes and get good position. You need a direction changing back on muddy field. Few slips though today. Grant Mahoney looked good today - the off center snaps threw the fieldgoal timing off. Brandtner looks like money.
Biggest weakness is protecting the sidelines against runbacks on kick offs and opunts. What is up with that? Last week it was KSU always running back on left sidelines and getting to the corner. Now you had Broell run up the sideline. Should be easier to push people out of bounds that we are making it.

CFH HMagic bball season.
Let my fred's Four Horsemen ride.
A-Rob is a power runner but didn't appear to be hitting the holes very fast today. I think he's better than he showed today.
BUT there is a certain someone sitting out this year that will have something to say about the running back situation next year.
I thought he hit the inside holes hard and ran very hard today. A few time he had one guy to beat but didnt. If he would have had a shorter shirt on he would have had 6 on one play. When he ran outside is when he had problems. Iowa did a good job on getting their guys to stay home and stop the QB and RB runs outside as well as any delays ISU ran.

ARob is clearly the best running back. It's really not even close, IMO. He got a lot of yards where there was nothing. And there was nothing most of the day. Our OLine really doesn't seem to have developed from last year. They may have even gone backwards. Disappointing to see...
