    Excellent article by Ben. The most important line was "more with more".


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    Thats a good suggestion he made for the farmers or others who can't make every game. Buy the tix and donate them to some future clone fans at the boys & girls clubs for the games you can't make. Who knows how many of there friends they will tell about there awesome experience at the game.

    Where is this "defensive line-heavy recruiting class will start to pay off some this season" that he's talking about?

    Not sure who is still with the team, but:

    Current 2011 Class
    David Irving, DE
    Devin Lemke, DE

    2010 Class
    Brandon Jensen, DT
    Nick Kron, DE
    Rony Nelson, DE

    2009 Class
    Walter Woods, DT
    Taylor Martin, DE

    2008 Class
    Jake McDonough, DE
    Adrin Haughton, DT
    Cleyon Laing, DE
    Stephen Ruempolhamer, DT

    There could be some players who originally were recruited as OL or TE that are now playing DT or DE. I don't know. Is 2 to 4 players a year considered "defensive line-heavy recruiting"? The 2008 class should be much improved next year.

    After watching the "No Huddle" version of the game, I was appalled by the amount of poor blocking by our receivers. While watching the game live, I gave lots of credit to Missouri's speed. Now, I only give them half credit because of our poor blocking when we had opportunities to break plays open. Fortunately, I think blocking can be taught if our receivers are willing to learn. They already seem willing to take hits, now they just need to start giving them.

    Haughton and Martin are gone.

    Here's what we will have as of right now it appears.....

    Seniors- Rump, Lattimer, Neal, Black
    Juniors- Nelson, McDonough, Laing, Maggitt
    Sophs- Aaron Moore, Willie Scott, Walter Woods
    RS Fresh- Brandon Jensen, Nick Kron
    True Fresh- David Irving, Devin Lemke, Jevohn Miller?

    A starting lineup of Rony Nelson, Rump, McDonough, and Lattimer wouldn't really be too shabby? Maggitt and Neal would give us some DE depth, and hopefully Laing and Woods or Black can provide depth inside?

    It sure wouldn't hurt to get a couple of those California JUCO's either. Bojay Filomateu? and the other Samoan name I can't remember.

    We desperately need some young DT's though. Walter Woods and Brandon Jensen are the only ones we have that are sophomores or younger it appears?

    Good writing as always. I for one think the QB situation will clear up, though not necessarily with the presumed starter. I also think that some of those receivers will develop and bring their A-game more than just a couple games next year.

    That's rough that Hobbs is injured. Until some of the guys this year, I hadn't seen a guy play harder as a Cyclone than Ellis Hobbs. That's a guy that could really bring it. I'm pulling for him to get better and resume his career in the NFL.
