    The Great Diversion...(just for fun)

    I think we'll come out bombing this game and catch KSU off guard. We haven't shown any of that thus far this season so maybe we were just saving it for Big 12 competition!?

    Good Luck CYCLONES!!! Have a safe trip guys and handle the business!!!!


    This is how we FINISH STRONG!!!

    At first glance, I thought the title said The Great Division and was another conference re-alignment thread.

    You must know something from inside the locker room..??
    I hope that's true though!

    Re: The Great Diversion...(just for fun)

    I'd like to just continue running our offense until we get it figured out. Sometimes the only cure is reps.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: The Great Diversion...(just for fun)

    I would like to believe that, but with the play calling and the decision making of late by our QB probably doesn't allow this to happen.

    I hope we do what you mentioned though OP. We need some flavor from the O. This game means everything for the season IMO.

    I'm of the opinion that we should try to win all of our games.

    If we come out and start throwing deep all over the place, I think it will be a sign of desperation.

    The Oline doesn't hold blocks long enough to throw deep very often.
    The receivers, other than DD and White Chocolate haven't shown anything.
    The QB hasn't shown that he's accurate or makes good decisions w/the football.

    I'd like to see us run, run and run some more. That's where the skill position talent is on this team. ARob and the Floridian Flash are the two best offensive weapons that we have. AA running the ball is when he's most effective as well.

    Trying to throw the ball down the field more than a few times will not be good for us with this QB, this Oline and these receivers, imo.

    Re: The Great Diversion...(just for fun)

    I expected to see some tricky stuff by this point already this season. Last year we showed some "trick" plays that I'd like to see again. We have a pretty versatile WR who was a former QB. I'm sure we can find some way to make that work for us......

    Just as long as they don't resort to turning some tricks...

    It might be time to earn some nicknames. Just sayin'.

    His explosiveness has been underwhelming for the games he played last season and for the games he's played this season.

    I don't know that he's made someone miss yet.

    His catches against Iowa were when they were letting us do what we wanted, IIRC.

    Like I said before, he'll be Darius until he earns a nickname. You don't get to bring a nickname like $ with you and just keep it without earning it.

    I do think Darius has the potential to be an average receiver in the Big 12, but he's gonna have to improve his route running.

    When you are "money" in middle school, the nickname is apparently good for life.

    He probably scored TD's in middle school.

    A nickname like that should have to renewed every 2 years.

    Maybe he'll become a financial planner.

    Be curious to know your nickname RHH and when you got it; or do you even have friends?


    Kinnick smells like syrup.
