    Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    I am expecting some big things Saturday night from ISU's offense. (and not from 65 plays of chuck it to Blythe)

    While as you saw in my write up on the UNI offense that I am very worried about our defense, I think our offense has a great opportunity to get on track vs. UNI.

    In my write up I began my assessment with,

    "As an offense, while you would like to always be in a position to impose your will on the defense, the reality is often you are left to take what the defense gives you. Against Oklahoma or Texas the offensive game plan is more weighted toward what can we do against this defense, while other games it is less about the opponent and more about doing what we do best. While UNI’s offense worries me Saturday, our success or failure as an offense is going to be much more about what we do or don’t execute than about UNI’s defense."


    ISU should have success both running and throwing the ball. We really control our destiny against the UNI defense. Execute consistently and it will be a fun game to watch. Look for J.J. to have a really break through performance.


    "The Panthers will present multiple different looks to our offensive line, but ISU should be able to create lanes for J.J. Bass to run in. The defensive line is lead by two preseason all conference players in defensive end Jordan Lacy, 6’3” 265lb senior, and defensive tackle Mark Huygens, a 6’6” 277lb junior."


    If your interested, the rest of my writeup is on my blog which can be found here.

    You know, when UNI's lines are bigger than ours, there is something wrong.

    If our offense can't score 28 on this UNI defense we have something seriously wrong. I'm also expecting big things from the offense Saturday.

    Re: Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    I've been waiting for big things from our offense since Seneca left. The years below are links to the respective schedule on ESPN's website.

    2003 - Um, no. Scored 48 once, against Ohio. After that the best we could muster was 21

    2004 - Scored 48 points vs. NIU, 3 of those TD's were defensive or special teams scores. The 34 vs. NU was a great one though, all were good or long drives. 37 vs. K-State, but one TD was a defensive score and the two fieldgoals were setup by the defense, one of which we couldn't get a first down.

    2005 - Scored 32 vs. Ill. State, a safety and a score setup by the defense (missed extra point) were included. The only points not setup by the defense vs. Iowa was the final score (setup by a bomb to Blythe). Special teams and defense setup nearly all points vs. Army. 37 vs. Oklahoma State looks great, again - defense helped us out a ton - no drive longer than 64 yards. Finally, vs. A&M the offense showed up. Only one score was setup for the offense - the very last one. Against K-State, more help for the offense led to 45 points.

    2006 - Highest output was 45 and it took triple overtime to do it. Next best was 28. Don't even get me started on our absolutely pathetic points per game in the 2nd half. 'Nuff said.

    Re: Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    I've been thinking about this a little bit, and I think the A&M game in 05 is the last game that I have been really impressed by our offense since before the Oklahoma game in Seneca's junior year.

    Re: Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    Like I said in my post, you have to look past the points scored, because - much of it came from the defense.

    I think we scored some awesome number - like around 7-9 defensive touchdowns. Plus all the other turnovers we created (I think we were top in the Big 12 in both scoring on defense and turnovers created).

    That's awesome, however it gave us a very inflated view of our offense.

    I am hoping we destroy UNI's Defense, except for DeVeon Harris. I went to school with him and he is a good guy. Hope we torch the rest of them though.

    Turnovers helped a lot.

    Re: Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    I think we had at least one game where our defense OUTSCORED our offense, or at least came d@mn close. The CU game in '05 comes to mind.

    I seem to remember Paris running back a fumble and Curvey with the pick and TD. Not sure how the other pts came. But right there dang near half were on the D side.

    Dont forget 05 was the year of the infamous Greg Coleman Fumbles in the redzone we were absolutely horrible in the redzone in 05... the 05 team is the best since Seneca, hands down. I think good things are to come however

    Re: Big Things from ISU's Offense?

    I am just tired of ISU not putting up points on the teams that they should really put a lot up on...I think both UNI and ISU's offenses should be able to put points on the board. I just once want to see Meyer play ABOVE expectations...JJ Bass is going to take some pressure off of Bret and he better take advantage of his chances to make BIG plays, bcuz there might not be a whole lot of chances in the early big 12 season...

    The defense setting up the offense is usually how most teams score a lot of points. Just look at OU this last weekend they had a short field all night from their defense and special teams. They had a lot of yards but not the number of yards needed to put up 79. Nebraska also had a lot of short fields to score that's why in the first half they didn't score much because they had long fields.
