    Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    I am just not seeing it. I sat in the first row and at no time did Rhoads get in the face of Arnaud after throwin lousy throw after lousy throw. He walks back on the field after the injury and is immediately handed the job back. It is as though the coaches are too afraid to get after him for his play as they might upset him, am I the only one seeing this? He is just too of an emotional guy to play QB.

    It was a valid question. Maybe AA just isn't great under pressure so CPR doesn't apply it...

    I feel like Rhoads believes the players know what they are doing wrong, and its up to the positional coaches to do any possible chewing out.

    Re: Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    Leadership does not equal yelling. And yes, every player needs to be handled a little differently (not on the big issues, but on a 1 on 1 basis). AA puts a lot of pressure on himself. He works extremely hard. Just watch the kid running over defenders to get an extra yard, and tell me that he isn't a competitor.

    He may not have all of the tools to be great, but the staff obviously feels that he gives us the best opportunity to win.

    Re: Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    AA is playing the job and more than likely, doing it to the best of his ability. It's not like he's out there making stupid penalties. That's really the only reason I would like to see a coach get into a kid's face, for stupid penalties. AA isn't playing well, but there are 10 other guys out there who make up the Team. You don't single one out during the game for not making plays. That's what film and practice are for. IMO, and I'm not saying we need to get rid of this staff, but a lot of what is going wrong out there, I blame on the coaches right now. If we don't have the horses to compete with the scheme we have in place, we need to find ways make what we have work. That being said, CPR is a Team oriented, Team preaching guy. I just don't see him getting in a kid's face when he knows the kids are doing what they can.

    Am I happy with AA's performance out there, Hell no. I'm to a point where I wouldn't mind seeing Tiller get a few more snaps for sure. But during a game is no time to single out a kid and tell him he sucks and needs to get better. The coaches should have prepared him that week.

    Re: Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    Arnaud is 1 guy out of 11 who are completely underperforming.

    I hope from here on out, everyone who gets a penalty runs till they puke on monday.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    I really hope he is getting pressured to succeed. Pressure and being sthe starting QB for a BCS program should go hand in hand. So, if there is no pressure to succeed, then something is terribly wrong at ISU right now.

    I think this is exactly right - last year Herman's offensive game plan seemed more run oriented because that fit the players better and it didn't work great but better than this year. This year it seems like Herman thinks with the same players he can now run his offense - I know he must have felt AA improved enough to do this but it is time to re-evaluate.

    Re: Is Arnaud getting pressured to succeed?

    I am sure he is. Sounds like he works hard to get better and he does play hard in games, sometimes that just isnt good enough to win at this level. The other thing is he has never been pushed for his job, it was given to him since the day he walked on campus. His best season he was pushed by Bates for the job.

    He needs to do the little things to be a high performing qb. He has the gifts of the arm, he has the strength, the size, the foot speed, and desire. Yet he still does not look off defenders, he has to lock onto a single recriver, he does not pump fake he does not move around in the pocket, he does not throw on the run much, he does not throw a soft pass, he does not lay the ball out in front of receivers. TH and CPR said he was most improved on the team. It looks like that may be in practice against us. It is really too bad that he does not use these nuances as a senior because he would be so much better as a qb. He has only a few games left. Is he burdened so much with the running decisions that his field presence for passing is diminished? He just can add a few little things to his reportoire and he would be more successful. He will need them against the upcoming better competition.

    I agree, start Tiller, if Tiller fails against UNI the first quarter/half, then we know.
