    5 Key Players for ISU vs UI game

    Leonard Johnson - Last year he got abused in this game and got beat by McNutt on multiple occasions. By the time conference play came around he was very solid and a great CB. Has to play that way in this game and slow down McNutt and not give up the big play.

    Jacob Lattimer - With Vandenberg being more of a pocket passer, I think Lattimer can go after him a bit more. Rinnie from UNI was so fast that you had to try and stay in your gaps. On passing plays we need to get some pressure on Vandenberg and it starts with Lattimer

    Rump - We need him to be healthy and able to play a majority of the game. Slowing down Iowa's running game is key and takes them out of their ball game if they aren't able to run those play action passes as much

    Hayworth Hicks - Can his presence shore up the offensive line? Iowa's got a beast in Mike Daniels and we got to be able to run the football and give Jantz time to make a play. Hopefully the addition of Hicks can plug some holes and tire the Hawkeye D Line

    Steele Jantz - Quarterbacks are always the key to every game. Steele needs to play mistake free football and be more accurate than he was last Saturday. I think he made the right reads most of the time, now he just needs to make the throws. And he can't get greedy. Iowa will give up plays underneath. He needs to take what they give him and wait.


    Who else ya got?

    Horne has got to be on there, IMO, our key receiver this year.

    I was going to put Reynolds on the list if I put WR. I believe that Horne is going to be solid and dependable. It is "key" that Reynolds shows up and plays to his ability against Iowa.

    I agree with this but think it just has to be some WR, we have options so any one of them could make a play, we just need them to catch balls they should. And jump when the opportunity is there, could be Money, Darks, Horne, Lenz, West, or even Bundrage or Daniels (maybe we saved him for this week)....

    I think we also need a RB to step up, the running game outside of Jantz was pretty weak last week, we need more production there.....

    We just need a lot of luck to go our way. Hopefully its a 2007 type game because we won't be able to score more than 15 on them IMO.
    A defensive TD would be great.

    We've got to force a few turnovers.

    Re: 5 Key Players for ISU vs UI game

    Horne will be the third down go to guy. He is too gifted as he can maneuver his body many ways in order to catch the ball. He may not be the fastest, but he gits 'er done.

    My guess is we won't be able to run the ball so Steele will throw it 35+ times again. Hopefully he goes off.

    There were no holes. The O-line rarely got to the 2nd level, UNI's LB's were filling the holes.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: 5 Key Players for ISU vs UI game

    If we throw the ball 35+ times, we are in for a TON of trouble. If we can't run the ball consistently to keep Iowa off balance, we will be in a world of hurt.

    We usually throw it 35+ times if we are running well or not.

    No we don't. We threw it 35+ times TWICE all of last year in 12 games.

    Really? I feel like it'll be different this year.

    KO? I look at him as our Suh. He's big. He's physical, and as long as he can play the entire game while avoiding getting penalties like last year, our line will be able to get its job done.
