    Okay, I'll bite. (If this sounds familiar, it should. I have nothing against Grant nor against CW's answer last week. However, for the second week in a row,Grant was our leading scorer.)

    Name three things that must happen Saturday to keep our kicker from being team high scorer again.

    Ben, as a player, what are your thoughts when you look up at the stands with 5 minutes remaining, and the fans start fighting to get out the door and exit the stadium?

    Walking past Hilton to get to Trice for the game, I noticed the plastic tubing and wondered what are they doing? Are they pouring air into the building to help keep things dry? Special mold removing? What do they do?

    Re: Ben Bruns Mailbag: POST QUESTIONS HERE

    Can you breakdown the performance through 4 games of the offensive line? With special attention to why there are all the troubles with penalties and compare/contrast the run blocking to last year? Thanks!

    Re: Ben Bruns Mailbag: POST QUESTIONS HERE

    IMO, if ISU wants to make a bowl game this year, they probably need to win 2 of their next 4 games. Texas Tech does not scare me much, and Oklahoma has not been what I thought they would be. Utah looks extremely good, and underrated, and Texas looks about the direct opposite.

    If ISU goes 2-2 in their next 4, what 2 games do you see them winning?

    Re: Ben Bruns Mailbag: POST QUESTIONS HERE

    Ben: I am concerned about our Offensive Line play, there isn't a push and we aren't able to pick up LBs to secure a solid running game (even against UNI). What needs to happen?

    I was impressed with our drop coverage against UNI ... how many defensive TDs??!! With our D being undersized going into big12 play, what can done be to work that to our advantage?

    My right leg tingles whenever A.J. Klein gets and interception. Why is that?

    Why is the o-line struggling with assignments and penalties when we get inside the 20?

    We are 1/4 of the way through the season. Who are your offensive, defensive and special teams players thus far? Why?

    Why aren't we getting the ball down the field 10+ yards, instead of the maddening 3 yard passes?

    Re: Ben Bruns Mailbag: POST QUESTIONS HERE

    Do you think AA or Tiller have the accuracy and touch needed for a good short passing game in the spread? What are the main reason or reasons this offense has not taken off yet?

    Might as well add the "half-empty" stadium at the start of the second half to that question.

    How would you compare the coaching styles of Paul Rhoads to Dan McCarney? Like what do they they do the same or different?
