    I am finally doing it

    Last year when I worked my crappy schedule, I only got to watch the first quarter of the Nebraska game, but I did DVR it. This morning I am finally sitting down and putting myself through the pain that most of you went through by watching the whole game. Maybe it will turn out differently this time?

    I would seriously stop watching right before the failed 2 pt conversion. Way too painful...

    FYI, if we can get some decent QB play, I think we will surprise next season....

    Of all the trick plays Rhoads has run on special teams, that's the first one that hasn't worked. Too bad the one that didn't work had to come at such a critical time.

    * Brandtner's fake punt against Nebraska.
    * VanderCamp's fake punt against ??
    * Kuehl and Mahoney teaming up on a fake FG option pitch against ?? for a first down.
    * The onside kick that went right into the hands of Jeremy Reeves against Texas Tech after our second TD.
    * The fake PAT against Nebraska that failed.

    Are there others? That's quite a few anyway in only two years.

    Onside kick down in Austin last year.

    And for the record: the 2pt conversion should have worked and was a brilliant move, Nebbie had their pants around thier ankles on that play. The player who threw the pass is the only thing about that play that went wrong.

    Didn't we try an onside vs Iowa in 2009?

    That was a gutsy call right there.

    And it didn't work, and the snowball started to roll. But it was gutsy.

    Re: I am finally doing it

    The thing is, as we get better athletes all around, a higher percentage of those plays will work.

    Personally, I never understood why your number 2 QB doesn't hold. It feels like a good way to keep them involved in the game.

    +1. even if you don't want to risk your #2 qb getting hurt, you still have numerous other QB's that can hold for you.

    This is not what i expected when i clicked this thread. I figured you had finally devised a way to ensure you'd never forget the kids at school again.

    That's what I was hoping, too.

    No luck for the children.

    Re: I am finally doing it

    Another thing interesting from that game was the announcers talking about how during their conversations with ISU coaches regarding Tiller our coaches said that they likes his talent, but felt like he needed to dedicate himself to the position more. Funny that we are hearing the same kinds of things 8 months later.

    If Jantz is a dedicated as they say, I think he will be the guy.
