    WR play

    Obviously the O and D Lines were MUCH improved, but let's give some love to the WR's.

    Boys that's how I expect you to play on a game to game basis. All the wide-outs were blocking exceptionally well on the outside runs and bubble screens and they caught just about every pass except for one drop from Horne.

    If they can play like that and Jantz can continue to play out of his mind a bowl game is completely attainable.

    Re: WR play

    Messingham has done a great job with the wideouts this season.

    Agreed. Good coaching change.

    Or have an elephant stashed away in the locker room now.

    Anyway, this is the best I've seen the receivers play in years.

    Re: WR play

    2 things i didnt like today...

    1. didnt get much pressure on vandenberg. iowa o-line is solid! rony had a sack though!!
    other than that, we needed more pressure. vandenberg helped us out by missing ALOT of passes.

    2. offensive play calling was not great. was pretty good at times, but need to be more consistant with it.

    I agree. Great play all around, and everyone was involved in the win. Commentators mentioned their blocking as well, which is really a key to our offense.

    Disagree with your first point. Getting pressure and getting sacks are not always the same. ISU got a lot of pressure on Vandy today, forcing him to make throws when he wasn't quite ready to. He didn't have very many chances to stand tall in the pocket in the 2nd half. That's pressure.

    Stop. You're trying to reason with a 3 year old - won't work.


    Anyway - the receivers were VASTLY improved from last week and the last few years. Guys were making good cuts, catching the ball and getting yards after catch/contact.

    Jantz has better field awareness and throws a better ball than Austin did. He works through his reads and doesn't throw into heavy coverage.

    I thought this as well. I saw very few, if any, dropped balls. The WRs played amazing ball. Jantz still deserves a lot of credit though.

    The only drop I recall was by Horne! Reynolds and Darks made great plays at times when they were most needed. It was nice to see.

    Looking at the stats, it seems like everyone on the roster got a catch lol

    Compared to the past few years I thought or D-line did an exceptional job today. It didn't show in sacks, but there wasn't the time for Iowa's QB to sit and wait for an open guy like there was in the past.

    And one of the best catches, the long TD to #15, got called back because of holding. He must have really sold a move because he was wide, wide open in the endzone.
