    Run Spread Offense Against Big10

    Heard some good points tonight about the spread offense against Big 10 teams....

    Have we figured out what style we are running this year ? Hope to see us spread it out this week against the Hawks and see some of what we did right in the first half of last years game in Iowa City. Hope the new coaching staff will look back at that film and Meyer's play last year against Iowa in the first half. We still have playmakers on offense.... and the addition of Bass we should be more potent than last year... I know.... key word... SHOULD BE.

    Also.... Meyer did have some nice quarterback draws against Northern Iowa and I do believe he hurt the Hawks also with his feet.... I know... shoulda been more aggressive on that last run late in the game.

    Hope to see us spread it out.... Lots of guys to throw to... not just Blythe.

    Go Clones !

    Re: Run Spread Offense Against Big10

    I agree that is by far the best way to attack Iowa especially, they are weak against spread offenses. I really like the QB draw ability of Arnaud and Bates as well, I really think we're going to see that as the staff is working them in.

    Re: Run Spread Offense Against Big10

    They were weak the last few years against the Spread. Iowa hasn't played against it well recently, but Iowa has played LSU who had a lot of spread packages, Florida who had a lot of spread packages, and Texas spread the field a bit more (not quite a spread - at least not against the Hawks).

    It just depends on the players on defense. BigTen teams don't run it (other than Indiana, Northwestern, and Illinois), so there isn't a lot of practice against it.

    Couldn't but help see your signature.... "ISU Student ... Iowa fan.. best of both worlds...."

    It is "those" Iowa fans I despise of most ! I was an Iowa fan before going to Iowa State, but after enrolling and taking classes with the same players on the field and court on Saturdays I felt a common bond and cheer for MY Univerisity... WE ARE IOWA STATE ! In case you question what classes... I was a 96 grad and had business classes with the Mayor... yes Fred Hoiberg and proud to be a CYCLONE !

    ISU Student ? Iowa fan ? please wipe your feet at the door !

    Go Clones !
    WE ARE IOWA STATE !
    I AM A GRAD OF IOWA STATE !

    See, the way I look at it, is I'm paying 10K + for tuition - I'll follow whatever sporting team I'd like. I don't dislike the Clones, that's why I post here. I just like the Hawks more.
