    Laing's pass deflection in OT #3

    This was a huge play he made on first down. I remember seeing McNutt open around the first down marker and when I watched the OT again last night - he was. Laing getting a hand on that was a play that didn't seem big - yet likely was one of the biggest in the game.

    Re: Laing's pass deflection in OT #3

    It seems like ISU's dlinemen rarely knockdown passes when compared to other teams ISU plays. Hopefully this is a sign that things are changing.

    Re: Laing's pass deflection in OT #3

    In this era of pass-happy offenses, especially where the QB is in a shot-gun, the DL blocking passes should be stressed more. Happens more in the NFL - like w/McNabb yesterday. In shotgun & ball out in 2 seconds or less, only thing a DL can do is get in a lane & get those hands up. Not going to get a sack anyways, even a LB blitzing

    Re: Laing's pass deflection in OT #3

    You have to be able to disengage from the offensive linemen with plenty of time to get your paw up to block a pass. Our past offensive linemen were too busy getting man handled by offensive lines to think about blocking a pass.

    The play I'm referring to takes place at the 8:45 mark of the video above.

    So many critical things happened in that game but Laing swatting that pass away was huge. Iowa's play selection was altered due to that knocked down pass. It resulted in a 3rd & 5 or 6 which forced their hand and they had to throw the football. It was a great "effort" play. I was so impressed with the overall effort ISU played with. Darius Darks catch on 3rd down in the 3rd OT to set us up with first and goal... the ball was low and behind him and as he was going down to get it he had to adjust and reach back for it. Quite the snag. The receivers blocking on the edge was outstanding nearly the entire game. The O-line... what can you say... On many of the pass plays Jantz had all day long back in the pocket. Jantz... when he was under pressure he always seemed to find a way to slip out of the D's grasp and make a play... the 3rd down conversion from inside our own 10 yard line was simply amazing. The running backs... hitting the holes hard and not dancing around... when there was contact to be made our RB's were initiating it and not avoiding it (pretty damn good considering they aren't the biggest guys). The D... What can you say that hasn't already been said... they were hitting, swarming to the ball, the batted down pass, LJ seeing Coker being taken down just comes flying in full speed ahead like a human missile and plowing forward straight into the football to force a critical fumble...

    This was the best all around effort I have seen from ISU on both sides of the ball in a long, long, long time. The culture is changing, our skill position players are weapons, and our D is loaded with speed. For the most part we controlled the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball. As Iowa was wilting in the heat ISU simply kept getting stronger. Yancy has obviously done an outstanding job in conditioning this team and the players have obviously been putting in the effort there as well. Conventional wisdom says that a team will make the biggest improvement from week 1 to week 2. Based on the improvement we saw this team could be very dangerous in the Big XII this year if that improvement keeps trending in a positive direction. Time to see if can take that on the road to UCONN and put another W on the board.

    thanks for posting the OT video, you can see the trophy breaking in at the end. It looks more like it just fell apart than ISU broke it.

    That Keenan Davis drop play (9:15) was a nice illegal screen play. Could have easily been offensive PI.

    Im thinking he already felt his head explode with Jake Knott running right at him with a full head of steam, so he just dropped it.

    I agree with this. Aaron Horne dropped one across the middle earlier in the game and it's probably better off that he did, considering Kirksey was going to put the kill shot on him.


    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.”

    Man... between Knott and Kirksey I would not have wanted to be a receiver on either side running across the middle trying to catch a pass. Running across the middle in that game is going straight into the "kill zone".

    Wow, I forgot about how close Knott came to picking off the very first play of OT. He jumped that route but was just a hair late.
