    Discipline and focus

    Too much emotion is a bad thing in both our coaches and players. We need some of the military approach in our coaching of this team. There is a reason Johnny Majors, Bear Bryant, Gene Stallings, Bo Schembeckler and others did that "stupid thing" of making the players line up their helmets and gave the "your in the army now and we are here to seperate the men from the boys" speech back in the old days. Also, I can not believe that LJ was trotting out on the next series after an inexcusable personal foul. Sometimes "family" members need a swift kick in the ***.

    We also won 5 games in two years.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Discipline and focus

    All players need to learn the difference between genuinely playing with emotion and simply running around expending emotional energy. The latter is very not conducive to winning, as it distracts from focus and concentration. It seems that ISU is still struggling with this.

    Not to nitpick, but the officials kicked LJ out of that game. Gene didn't sit him down.

    The entire team should be required to wear "DEPENDS" in the first quarter while they **** down their legs.

    And we will never know what would have happened in year three. But it's clear to me that CPR teams= never......and I mean never starts fast in any game. In a third of the way thru CPR's 3rd year we sit at #119th in penalty yards against and #118 in turnovers. Unless things change fast in the focus and discipline department we may beat Kansas. May.

    Gene Chizik did not sit Leonard after the UNLV incident. Leonard was kicked out of the game by the officials.

    For a guy to be so military like Chizik is (according to beca), it's amazing how undisciplined his teams are/were. 5 wins in 2 years? No discipline on defense and his first year at Auburn they led the country in penalties

    We had a 20-0 lead on TTU in the 2nd quarter last year. We were beating UT 14-3 at half. We won both of those games.

    This is not meant to be a GC **** fest. The point is discipline and focus are a problem at ISU in CPRs third year.

    Gene Chizik never started fast or ended fast. At least Rhoads can win games at least we don't lose games to UNI, UNLV, Toledo, Kent State, etc

    Re: Discipline and focus

    Yesterday's game is the necessary link to show the team what was going on in the first 3 (now 4) games will (and did) cost you games.

    I see this being a positive motivator to get the dumb penalties and turnovers corrected.

    Bull. It is what you do and it's obvious. You are trying to compare what GC did to what CPR did. Well every ISU fan but you knows that CPR is 10X better at the job here at ISU than GC was.
