    Onside Kick, Gutsy Call

    That onside kick in the third quarter (?) was a gutsy call and awesome to see it work. Even though we went three and out, it ate up some clock which helped at the end of the game.

    I like seeing some of the surprises the coaching staff has been calling on Special Teams this year.

    And then the flea flicker right after. Brilliant, too bad we didn't do anything with that possession.

    it was in the second quarter.


    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    That was beautiful execution on a gutsy call. If Arnaud doesn't float the flea flicker on the next play ISU is driving and hopefully scoring again. CPR has some big ones!

    Gutsy call. Never seen it executed that well. 3 and out after that but loved the call.

    Thanks, my bad, no argument for eating the clock at the end of the game then, but still, maybe prevents additional points on the board for TU in the first half.

    Maybe we can throw in a statue of liberty rushing play and change our name to Boise State.

    Has there every been a more perfectly executed onside kick in the history of college football? Exactly 11 yards right to the gunner, perfect catch.

    YES ISU ATE CLOCK. Mission accomplished. Defense was off the field.

    Totally surprised everyone. I was not ready for it and neither was UT. When it happened, all I could think of was "Don't pull a Baylor!".

    Re: Onside Kick, Gutsy Call

    The coaching staff is great at looking at the game situations and taking advantage of team rolling back to block for kicks and punts. The only time that this has backfired on ISU was against Iowa last year, when one of the Iowa guys actually didn't peel back and then made a great play to knock down the OS kick. It was really strange because he was the only guy there and the only guy that could have made a play on it.

    Beat me to it. Most perfect on-side I've ever seen.

    Augsburg College (D3 school in Minnesota) ran the exact same onside kick last year at Wartburg

    That & the fake punts this year have been called at perfect times & executed flawlessly. Special teams have been pretty darn good this year.
