    Very nice game plan from Herman

    Herman has caught plenty of heat this year in the down games, so I wanted to tip my hat to him for this game.

    Herman clearly watched a LOT of K-State film against TTech and saw how KSU mixed up zone reads with ISOs and Counters to heep TTech back on their heels. The ISOs and counters were new to our scheme this year, so it's clear that Herman had a nice plan. We had not seen much of that and I thought TTech looked lost much of the time.

    I was also really great to see some of our second unit doing things effectively, particularly the OL. Gannon played a lot at LG and Lichtenberg was rotating in with Bykowski at LT and did well overall.

    We had our way with the Ttech front seven and they really had answer and looked confused often. Herman called a great game and we executed pretty well. It was a classic hangover game for them, and they were sleepwalking and never woke up.

    Cheer to Herman and the offense

    I agree. Herman gets enough heat when things don't go well, so he should get some positive attention when they do.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    Herman did come in with an excellent gameplan.

    Also, with Jared knowing the read option already it helped that much more. I like the new look.

    Let's go get Kansas now.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    He did a a very nice job of run first and throw second and that was Tech's weakness. I thought our quarterback did an excellent job of playing smart.

    Our defense deserves a lot of credit too. Tech got the ball a lot, but we stopped them a lot.

    That counter is a missing piece of our offense. Extremely effective.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    Having the O-line play solid all game outside of a handful of plays was the best surprise of the night, even more than Herman's gameplan.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the counter. Great seal by the TE on that play and we ran it great yesterday. I would like to see the YPC on that play. It had to be near 10 yards.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    Absolutely. Hopefully this win will convince him that you can still win games in this league focusing on a strong rushing attack. Even more impressive was the way some of young guys that we've had to work in upfront played last night. Let's be objective, they were really struggling 3-4 weeks ago and last night you could see the growth and improvement. Great sign for the future. My only beef with Herman has been that I don't think he plays to our strengths enough. He did last night and we see the results.

    I only remember it being run twice but both times were around 10 yards. White and Duck are so small Tech was having problems even seeing them in the backfield.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    its nice when we don't turn the ball over 3 times in the first quarter. JB seems to be doing a much better job with that.

    Re: Very nice game plan from Herman

    If you can point the finger at Herman for anything, it's that he didn't take advantage of our depth at running back sooner. It's hard to be mad now that it seems like he's found a successful formula. Bravo, sir!
