    Defense

    another 500 + yards given up today. I was Browsing through ESPN.com and Iowa state ranks 116th in points against. I cant really tell if it is the offense Being so bad, not enough talent or Coaching (wally). but something needs to change.

    Im sure it is a combination of all three but just wanted to get the fanatics input

    400 yards vs Texas
    603 yards vs baylor
    583 yards vs Mizzou
    510 Yards vs AtM

    total of 2096 yards

    that last touchdown before halftime By AtM was the saddest excuse for Defense I have ever seen, something has to be changed!

    Re: Defense

    What a clown.

    But seriously, I think it is mostly do to the inconsistency of the offense and not the best of talent.

    Re: Defense

    I think it mostly has to do with being on the field a lot due to a poor offense, and Reeves.

    As much as the crap the offense takes, the defense didn't do themselves any favors today. The only turnover that ISU got today was on special team on the muffed punt.

    How can any team expect to win when a Defense constantly gives up 500 yards a game?

    Re: Defense

    I really believe that the DL is a bigger issue than the offense. The offense was functional today at the time of the defensive collapse. The defense was getting plenty of rest.

    You don't understand the game of football. Giving up 33 points to A&M should be a victory. Our offense continues to be the problem. Yards mean nothing.

    How did A and M do compared to their season averages for the game? That will be a better indication of our Defensive performance. The running game seemed to be much better than the Mo game. We really stopped Swopes on the pass plays and there was not much else. The defense had some key stops or held to field goals but the offense didn't take advantage like they should have perhaps due to a new Qb...hopefully and we will have those bugs out of our system.

    Bottom line the Team is still " all in ", no one called this one in. We need to be all in as well.

    Re: Defense

    while the D needs some help, the Offense is the major problem. our D is on the field way too much because the Offense is so inept. we play a "bend, but don't break" defense, so we will naturally give up a bunch of yards....that's not the real problem. WE NEED SOME OFFENSIVE CONSISTENCY.

    But the DL breaks when the offense is either functioning or hasn't been on the field yet (see Mizzou). It's too easy to blame the offense, but the DL is terrible without the offense's help, and breaks when the offense is doing everything they're supposed to do to help them.

    Re: Defense

    Iowa State has now given up 171 points in its last 4 games (42.75 points/game), giving up at least 33 points in each game.

    Inexcusable.
