    ISU Defense Strategy and Offense Strategy

    The Bend don't break defense isn't working. This Strategy is great if your front four can make plays but ours can't. So when Reeves and Johnson, who are two of the Best CBs in the Big 12 are playing 8 to 10 to ten yards of the ball the other team can run short curl routes ALL DAY against us. This team has the talent to win these games our secondary and linebackers are very solid in coverage we just need to blitz more and move our corners closer to the line of scrimmage. On offense I just don't think we can pull off the spread we just don't have the receivers for it. Our line seems better suited for a pro set offense similar to Iowa's. I love the ball that Barnett throws he has some serious talent he just needs to become more consistent with his throws. This team is so close to being where we think they should be.

    Re: ISU Defense Strategy and Offense Strategy

    Can't do anything when the offense can't stay on the field for more than 1 or 2 series. The defense just gets worn out. It shows more today than other games, imo for how well they were playing early. Our O has to find a way to burn some clock when they are out there.

    let the team score as many points as possible and create as many 3 and outs as possible.

    Reeves is nowhere CLOSE to the top of the Big 12 corners.

    If I read that correctly, this team is so close...we just need to completely change our offense and defense?

    i agree with this for the most parts... i dont know why when we are down by 7-20 pts we dont let the corners take more chances on routes.. annoying... we got within 2 scores and they just let A&M throw sideline routes all night... let reeves or LJ try to make a play.

    Re: ISU Defense Strategy and Offense Strategy

    Thought Reeves had a poor game today, Johnson is very good though; one of the only sure tacklers on defense. Thought overall the defense played much better than they did in the Missouri, but then again they couldn't get much worse. We needed to do more on offense today and couldn't convert in key situations that is pretty much what cost us the game.

    Our offense is killing the defense. Even when the defense plays well(1Q), they can`t get enough of a break. Offenses in the B12 eventually get into a rythm when given enough chances.

    In fairness, the defense never exactly helps the offense with a short field or anything. The lack of turnovers is disturbing. The offense never has a shot to get into rhythm because the defense can't get themselves off the field.

    I was going to say the same thing. He gets burnt time in and time out all game long.

    This I agree with. Our defense seldom helps our offense this year. I think it has something to do with the teams and gameplans we have in place. The first three games were teams that ran a lot and weren't turnover prone. The last four have been situations where I think we wanted to make teams beat us running the football. They have done that obviously.

    Re: ISU Defense Strategy and Offense Strategy

    The bend but don't break philosophy was the most apparent when A&M ran comeback routes for 10-15 yards a lot. If you try to cheat on it then they are just going to run hitch-and-go's for big yards. We gave them the easy yards cause if we tried to jump routes or jam them at the line we would of gotten beat deep. So it's kind of a pick-your-poison situation.
