    No Penalties on Opposing Teams

    Why no penalties on teams that play ISU? Look no further than the obvious. What are some of the most common penalties you see in a football game? Offside, Holding and Pass Interference. Well, letís look at ISU opponents and figure this out.



    -We donít draw the opponent offsides because we are not under center barking out snap counts. Itís easy to watch the ball and not jump.



    -Holding penalties are not called against other teams because there is no need to hold our defense, which doesnít get any pressure anyway. Most holding calls are because they are trying to save their QB from being killed. No pressure = no holding.



    -And finally, pass interference. We are not drawing any of these because we only throw the ball down the field once or twice a game. Throwing screens and running the ball does not lead to any pass interference calls.



    These are just observations after I was thinking about why EVERY team we play has very few penalties, and now it makes more sense. Maybe I think too muchÖ

    That and we're not disciplined.

    Oh, and the conspiracy to keep ISU down in the Big 12, probably has a major effect as well.

    I'm glad I'm not totally drunk here :) Thought this was a way better analysis than "the Big XII is out to get us!"

    While your analysis is spot on, you need to fix this chap.
