    Re: The Offensive Line

    By far the most disappointing position group tonight in my opinion. They were just horrible...I sit beside a former ISU offensive linemen and he was astonished by how bad they were.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    Two starters out, 1 injury and 1 suspension, need to improve 100% to win any meaningful games this year, if two starters returning gets you 40% still need a lot of improvement in the other sixty

    Re: The Offensive Line

    Only excuse I heard on the call-in show and postgame show tonight was KO was injured, and they're starting with a new center (and that showed as he got beat badly a couple of times). A few false starts but no holding calls that I remember. That being said, I hope they get a lot better than this before next week. A LOT BETTER! Can't have free rushers coming up the middle, or Steele under pressure in no time against a 3-man rush.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    Terrible and any other synonym you can throw in. Coaching staff obviously has no faith in them if the QB lines up in the shotgun when the ball is on the goal line!

    Herman is going to have us run out of the shot gun on the goal line no matter what. It's what he likes. Shot gun 100% of the time.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    I understand the suspension deal plus KO being dinged up but after hearing all spring and camp that this would be one of the best position groups and be very deep I couldn't believe how bad they looked. We couldn't dig in and get a yard against UN freakin I...embarrassing.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    1. Zero push at point of contact
    2. Poor communication, allowed a 3 man rush to disrupt the QB
    3. Interior lineman could not hold blocks in either run or passing situations.
    4. Outside lineman allowed speed rushers to break the pocket.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    CPR said before the season this was the best O-line they've had. I understand that KO was out most of the game and our road paver Hicks didn't play. Still doesn't excuse the horrible play by the rest of them.

    Very poor play, but the staff is high on them, so the jury will be out for at least a couple more games.

    Re: The Offensive Line

    ...was god ******* awful. Jantz had no protection and the running backs had to make their own holes because there was nothing there.

    I can't actually decide which line was worse. The defensive line is absolutely brutal with keeping contain. The offensive line was trying to get Jantz killed.

    We are in a bad bad way. May not win another game if this is the offense we are going to roll out.
