    James said bring them on

    James got home late Tuesday night after driving 16 hours and he and i had a good conversation about all this Q/B controversy,he was to wired to go to sleep. Anyway he said no one is taking his spot at starting Q/B. He said he knows he has to earn it and that is what he intends to do!!.I was a little shocked is this being cocky or confident?? But he insists they will ot be able to keep him off the field he says he knows all the defenses and the plays and wishes he would have got a shot in a couple games(He brags he would not be home, but preparing for a bowl game. Oh well just wanted to share with you his thinking,I guess time will tell. Anyway our family wishes all of you a safe and merry christmas and happy new year!!

    Re: James said bring them on

    QB's need to have that "give me the ball" attitude that all great starting pitchers have in baseball. Attitude and confidence is HUGE in athletes and is one of the "intangibles" people talk about. If you get good, they call it moxy.


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Re: James said bring them on

    I hope so. With that attitude all this is going to do is make them better players and the team better for it. I hope he maintains that passion through the whole season.

    Merry Christmas to the Capello family!

    Re: James said bring them on

    ISU needs an impact player at the QB position. I'm looking forward to spring practice to see how the competition plays out.

    I love ISU, but I want the guy who gives us the best chance to win at the starting QB position.

    Re: James said bring them on

    Love it. Go get em James. We need that attitude at every position and I think that is becoming more of a reality.

    Make good use of your time between now and Spring Ball so however the competition turns out you have no regrets. Proud to have you as a Cyclone.

    Re: James said bring them on

    We may have the most highly contested QB competition in the country. 5 guys and I am not ready to count any of them out.

    Whoops, forgot Daniels but in that case, next year, I am ready to count him out. I just don't think he has it yet. That's not to say he won't someday.

    Yeah, I am pretty sure they won't have who our starter will be on the bottom line.
