    Passing game

    The past few weeks I have really enjoyed seeing Albert Gary & Jarvis West play and contribute. But Does anyone else think that we have gone away to much from Darks. Reynolds, And Lenz. I think for the bowl game we should really use them much more

    Are you referring to Darius "Drops" Darks? I don't see Gary or West dropping near as many balls. Plus I believe Lenz was hurt in the OSU game but should be good to go for the bowl.

    Lenz has been hurt. Darks doesn't seem like he gives a crap IMO. Reynolds is either a 2TD game or non-existent for some reason.

    Glad to see the younger guys filling in just fine at the end of the season.

    Are you kidding me? The less we target DD the better. I will give him credit on his blocking and thank him for his 4 years with the program but the kid cannot catch the ball at all.

    Renolds is so bi-polar as well it's hard to understand. It's either a fantastic, high difficulty catch or a dropped ball that hit him in the hands. It must be a concentration thing for him plus he made the switch from QB just a few seasons ago. He blocks very well on the outside so he's got that going for him.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    From what I've seen Gary & Horne are our best 'YAC' receivers, so no I wouldn't change anything up.

    I would just like to see him targeted. He can't just go out there to block he is a Wide Receiver not a tight end

    Uhh, why? So he can drop the ball?

    Re: Passing game

    go with what works.

    I dont want to bag on DD but he hasnt ever really established himself this year (or ever). His most receptions and yds came against OSU when we threw 50+ times. and that was 5 catches for 49 yds

    Lenz has been hurt hence the lack of targets and production

    As others have said Money is either on fire or non-existent


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Exactly, he is a wide receiver and hasn't shown it. Has never been consistent at catching the ball so why make a case for him to get targets in his final game? Quite frankly he should be greatful he is still getting the opportunities. If he were at a bigger program he would be on the practice squad by now.

    I completely agree. I appreciated that he stuck it out for 4 years and busted his tail for the program so I hate to be hard on the kid.

    DD had a drop in the OU game that was so freaking infuriating to watch. IIRC it was still at a point in the game where the outcome was in question and we were driving and JB threw a perfect ball to DD for what should have been a nice gain and moved the chains in OU territory (all of this off memory) and he just dropped it. Nobody around him, just dropped it. Pretty much summed up his career (minus his freshman season which was fantastic.)

    Re: Passing game

    Throw to the guys that catch the ball. If we go away from someone who doesn't, we're making a good decision.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    This. We haven't had anyone that could make a play at wide receiver for a long time. These two can make people miss instead of tripping over their own shoe strings. Also, if we are moving the ball well, why does it matter who gets the ball? Just score baby.

    I guess you guys are right. But I can't help but remember when Reynolds was supposed to be having this amazing year.

    As soon as you see HUGE amounts of hype about a player on here that's when I lower my expectations for them. Seems to work pretty well. I enjoyed the plays he made this year but wasn't ****** when he didn't show up in some games.

    Ha great point. But I thought that he was doing a lot more with Jantz that JB. I guess that can be said with Gary only more with JB than Jantz
