    This One Hurts a Lot

    The Iowa loss did not bother me. We were not the better team that day.

    I had the feeling today that we let an opportunity really get away. We should have won this game, so it really hurts.

    I love Arnaud, and he is a great kid, but I have to say it: ISU must upgrade their
    QB play to truly implement the offense and all of its phases. We are limited right now in what we can do with Arnaud.

    Nest week equals: MUST WIN

    Agree with you 100%. The IA loss is not fun for being instate and all, but the KSU loss really sets a ton for the rest of the conference year, which is more important than IA.

    Not sure what to do with QB...AA has the skills but not sure if he is all 100% behind himself when he plays. Tiller...not sure he is the answer. Hope that we have some recruits coming in for this offense!

    Re: This One Hurts a Lot

    it hurts more than the iowa game because this was essentially a must win if we are to go bowling. We still have a long shot chance; we'll just have to beat a ranked team or two.... and everyone we "should"

    Re: This One Hurts a Lot

    I think most reasonable fans expected that we would lose on the road to Iowa prior to the season.

    Most of us had this as a winnable game however.

    The good news is that KU, CU, Mizzou, UNI and even Utah aren't unbeatable. But the problem is we'll probably go 2-3 best case on those games, which would put us at 3-9. Even throw in an upset or two and we're still not bowling.

    Re: This One Hurts a Lot

    I agree that we need a better QB. One that can and will take shots downfield and make less mistakes, however, AA is the best we have right now. It's his team, and if there was somebody better waiting in the wings, they'd be on the field.

    On another note, I liked what I saw from Tiller when AA went out. Shame he overthrew his receiver though...

    I think we could have won this game, I don't know how you think we should have.

    Correct. Realistically... we deserved to lose the game, but somehow we COULD have won it.

    They dominated us. It could have been a lot worse.... don't kid yourselves. A stupid fake FG attempt. A stupid throw to AJ Klein when they didn't even need to throw one single pass to beat us today.

    Somehow we managed to stay in the game. I do give us credit for that, because they dominated us.

    I don't know that we *should have* won this game today. I never really felt like we were the better team, although the gap wasn't large. We were one awful Coffman throw away from losing by two TDs (although admittedly who knows how the game would have played out had that gone differently).

    It is hard to win games when your D scores as many TD as your O.
