    Steele has been owning the end of games. I'm not saying that we can necessarily weather an early game hangover, but I don't think we need to blow teams away out of the gate to have a chance either.

    I'm a little worried teams will figure him out soon. I think UCONN will blitz him from the outside relentlessly.

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    UConn's style of play over the past few years has been like that old analogy about how you should never argue with an idiot, as they'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

    UConn's offense has been one dimensional, and their defense would batter teams. They would win sloppy, ugly football games with lots of turnovers and few yards. But the key is that they won more than they lost.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Look for Shontrelle on the draw play in that case.

    May be a preview a yearly match-up if today's news is correct about OU.

    Can you fill me in on UCONN's one dimensional style of play? I haven't seen them play yet this year.

    Maybe. But he stepped up in the pocket on a lot of his scrambles on Saturday. At the very least, he stepped up instead of running wide, a lot more frequently than he did against UNI. Don't think that's not a point the coaches are making to him.

    Jantz has seemed fine with stepping up into the pocket to make throws, don't think it will be a big deal if they blitz from the outside.

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    Agreed. It's like breaking serve in tennis: It means nothing if you don't win the next game.

    It's like getting a turnover in football: It means nothing if you don't score.

    It's like...

    Let's see if we can go all day with analogies.

    Guys. Focus. We can't talk about anything but UConn. Move on, Forget about Steele's performance. This isn't the place to talk about other things.

    Why do so many Cyclone fans have to be ***** to their own fans?

    Re: BEATING UCONN IS A MUST!!!

    We must play better than we did in our last road game for sure! That was a long time ago but it still stings a bit to think about!

    Different team...lets hope for a much better performance!
