    First Spring Scrimmage Today

    2011 Spring Football Central: Scrimmage No. 1 - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Sounds like the defense played well today. Rhoads, Burnham & Herman all specifically mention the defensive effort.

    -Burnham says safety is still shaky and a concern.
    -Burnham also mentioned depth and named Jeremiah George & Adrian Bennett as two guys that played well.
    -Rhoads says the center to QB exchange was a problem today.

    I like listening to Wally. No coachspeak, no BS, etc.

    Hopefully the offense gets it together for the next one.

    At the CF recruitment party, my group had the good fortune of getting to speak with Wally for about 15-20 minutes and it was the highlight of my night. Said Knott and LJ will get drafted and Klein & Rump definitely could, but need to get better.

    You're right too, the guy tells it like it is. I won't name the player, but Wally said there's a guy on the defense they all call Einstein because he's so dumb. Hilarious.

    Looking at the qbs highlights, I rank them: #2, #18, #14, and #16.

    Still seeing lots of off target throws with no wind, no pressure. I think the qbs have a ways to go.

    Looks like we may run more.

    Re: First Spring Scrimmage Today

    Sounds like we have the possibility of a very good D this year, hopefully our O doesn't hold them back...not getting the Center/QB exchanges scares me, even at this point in the season. Those are fundamental things...

    Do not like to see it, but it is a practice thing imo, not a fundamental roster problem (not having any pass rushers or play-making WRs).

    Re: First Spring Scrimmage Today

    Yeah with Farniok there might be some trouble at the C/QB exchange but that will fix. Sounds like the D will be a powerhouse and like Erik said hopefully our offense doesn't hold 'em back

    Re: First Spring Scrimmage Today

    I agree with swarthmore. The snaps are something that can be corrected in practice with repetition. Something that I hadn't considered was the possibility of taking more snaps under center, and that being the root cause of the issues, but I haven't heard any rumors of that, so I'm guessing it's just getting that shotgun snap back to the QB quickly and on target.

    Re: First Spring Scrimmage Today

    I attended the clinic and practice- My observations from practice today: Tiller had problems with his throwing shoulder and had has reps limited, Jantz took full advantage, he is very elusive and had the offense moving most of the time- Shontrelle Johnson is the real deal, he made guys miss and had some great runs- D-line looked good, had pressure on the QB numerous times-Passing game was erratic, but the defense does know the calls and audibles at the LOS, which makes it difficult on the offense- FG kicking was shaky, missed several, but did make them all during a red zone period- Jake Knott did not participate in the scrimmage at all, had his pads off, might be dinged, he did participate in drills before the scrimmage started- Leonard Johnson looked very good, had several big hits- Several missed tackles at times, they came in bunches, however our running backs are elusive.

    Thanks for the synopsis. Any WRs jump out at you or was the passing game too erratic to really get a grasp on that group?

    Re: First Spring Scrimmage Today

    Jennert is impressive looking, made a nice catch in the end zone-he's working with the 2's mostly and had some time with the 1's, Horne made some nice plays-he's tiny by the way, Hammerschmidt is a nice TE, actually all the TE's made some plays. Money didn't have much of a chance to make a play, had a couple short catches, although, I left before the scrimmage ended.
