    We need to improve...

    TACKLING! In my opinion we need to stress improved tackling. 1 on 1 especially.

    Our ability to miss basic tackles brought a few tears to my eyes today.

    Re: We need to improve...

    I think our tackling improved a lot today. Especially considering we were going against one of the best running backs in the country.

    OK, we get it. You don't like AA. Someone is trying to talk defense, please don't hijack the thread and leave the AA bashing to one the 80000000 threads already doing that!


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    We need to have more acrobatic receivers for the passes.

    I actually didn't think the tackling was too bad. What was bad how K-State man-handled our front 7.

    Re: We need to improve...

    PR said he didn't think the tackling was bad at all against Iowa, which blows my mind.

    What did he say about todays tackling?
