    Do you realize what we are seeing????

    Anyone realize we have a season worth of great, clutch plays in just the first three games? Lenz, Money, Janz, etc, etc.

    Don't wake me up, I want this to continue!!!

    Great job again clones!

    Re: Do you realize what we are seeing????

    I was thinking the same thing. It's pretty amazing to be 3 and 0. I bet most on the board thought we'd drop 1, maybe 2 by this weekend.

    The difference is the offense in addition to an improved D.

    So much more fun than losing ;D

    No kidding.

    What we have witnessed the last 3 weeks, we may never witness again. I have been an Iowa State for 32 years and I am not believing what I am seeing. We've had better teams that would have lost all 3 of these games. No ****. All 3.

    Jantz throws 3 picks and is hurt and we win? We give up the touchdown and we win? I can't believe it.

    Re: Do you realize what we are seeing????

    3 games.

    3 4th Quarter deficits

    3 game winning/tying drives

    3 Jantz TD passes.

    It's hard to describe just how clutch Steele has been these first three games.

    And, at least for two games now, Money is exceeding the hype.

    Agree. They have played well. IMO, the whole group of receivers have stepped up. They are all contributing. Some nice downfield blocking also.

    This is what I've taken from the past two games. Not just Reynolds, either. The entire WR corps has stepped up this year. Coming into the year, this was easily the biggest question mark/weakness, with all the drops last year and Franklin's graduation. But Reynolds, Lenz, and Horne have all stepped up and made some very big plays. Darks as the #4 is pretty damn good option.

    Jantz has been clutch, but the play of the receivers I think has been the biggest key thus far.

    Offensive Player of the Game: Darius Reynolds. Steele Jantz made big plays, but Money won the game.

    Re: Do you realize what we are seeing????

    I was thinking the same thing when I saw UCONN's D-Coordinator call the "nipple squeeze" play twice...I couldn't believe what I was seeing!



    ...oh wait...you're talking about how special our team has been in these past 3 games. Man, if we iron out those penalties...we are in for a fun season.

    3-0 BABAAY

    Re: Do you realize what we are seeing????

    I have NEVER seen an ISU team overcome penalties and turnovers like we have so far this year. Not to mention guys being dinged up (KO's ankle, Knott's arm, now Jantz's ankle). There have been periods of good and bad play, but there has been enough of the good stuff to get past the obstacles. If we can clean up our game and get a little more consistent on both sides of the ball, we could have a very good season.

    Also, the ref's ******* sucked tonight.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    living on the edge will lose us a game or two we SHOULD win, we have been just good enough to overcome our mistakes, THIS team could be GREAT if they can clean up the penalties and turnovers...
