    Coach Speak from Burnham?

    Football - News - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Does coach Wally Burnham seem disappointed by some of the players study habits in meetings? Or was he just praising Jake Knott on his good study habits? Saying that even after telling the team during a meeting to write down everything he has to say so they can review it, then notices that Jake is the only one taking notes.

    It makes me a little disappointed to hear, it seems that the players believe that they can make a big move this year and surprise the pundits. It sounds like a lot of the team put in the work in the off season, on their bodies. It will go all for not if they don't learn from the coaches during the short time they have before the season starts, and put in the work on the mental side too.

    I really think you heard him wrong. He said that even though he'd said the same thing 500 times, Jake was the only one writing it down. That doesn't mean the rest of them are slackers, just that Jake is super ... I don't know; what's the word ... intense, crazy, anal, forgetful unless he writes it down? I don't think it was a reflection on the other guys at all.

    I'm pretty sure anal was the correct term

    Between being concerned how many friends Steele Jantz has on the team to being worried about how players are taking notes during meetings, I can't wait for football to start just so people have something worthwhile to discuss.

    Pretty sure that he is making note of Jake's leadership, and by making note of it (a crazy talented guy still outworking everyone), hoping that they will follow his lead.

    Re: Coach Speak from Burnham?

    Well I hope it was just things that Wally has said a thousand times b4. Our team dosen't have room to error if they are going to make a move this season and I am one that believes they can, if they work hard in all phases, mind, body, and culture. I too am ready for the real football.

    He was praising Jakes's leadership abilities and his readiness to learn, that is all. Stop reading too much into stuff.

    Re: Coach Speak from Burnham?

    Was he taking notes so that he could use this stuff against Steele Jantz somehow? That could create a rift in the team that no coach can repair.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Like how much better the backup QB(s) is(are) than the guy who is actually starting.

    Pretty sure he wants them all to take notes. It came up a couple times today and it wasn't a suggestion.
