    This offense is ready to pop...might not pop fully next year but look out in 2013 and beyond. We just need a good teacher to grind the fundementals into these young guys brains. Mess is the perfect guy.
    Agree and disagree. Bleil and Mess have done a good job all things considered. As far as Herman, why would you run an offense (passing game) predicated on beating people in congested space with the least athletic offense?

    At times we were young, at others not so much. 3 upperclassmen starting Olinemen, Jr QB, top 4 WR upperclassmen, top 2 TEs upperclassmen. That is 8 out 0f 11 starters being upperclassmen, only two of which being new starters (Hammer and Jantz).

    The Cyclone optimist in me believes we could see some improvement even if Herman was here, maybe even back to where McFarland had the offense with a sophomore QB in AA, sophomore RB in ARob, freshman KO, sophomore Hicks, true freshman Haughton, true freshman Darks, etc..

Reynolds had more yards per catch than anyone else, but he dropped so many (52% incompletion rate on balls thrown to him!!!) that we would have seen greater overall production by throwing to him less.

    Horne was our fourth best YpT at 6.84.

    Like I said, we're going to miss his physicality.

    If we're consistently getting up and down the field and not killing drives with drops of routine catches, we're going to have more scoring opportunities.

    It's a double edged sword. We're going to miss the things he did well, and by the same token we're not going to miss the things he didn't do well.

    I don't know. The staff seemed pretty high on Bundrage this summer, to the point that they almost burned his redshirt and played him the beginning of the season. He has pretty good height and potential. Luckily he didn't play and hopefully will be more physically mature and ready to play next season. He may not immediately be better than Darks and Money, but he coube be eventually.

    Another off season of work with a WR coach other than Luke Wells and the whole WR corps might be better next year. That's one of the reasons I am anxious to see who is brought in as the new WR coach. Maybe he will have some new ideas to improve the passing game and routes by the WRs.

    Wow, he's like a CPR clone in terms of attitude and philosophy. He makes me want to run through a wall too.

    Thanks for posting the video, 21.

    I like Coach Mess. Look forward to seeing what his coaching stye can bring to our Offense. With a bit more discipline that helps us avoid drive killing penalties I think we can really improve.

    I have a teacher at my high school who played for Messingham when he coached at Upper Iowa and he said that he would do anything for him. Seems like the kind of coach Iowa State needs.

    The big question is whether 3-star recruits from California, Texas, and Florida will do anything for him. Did they this year?

    I guess that is yet to be seen. How he is accepted by lower-level football players versus BCS players could vary greatly. I just felt a lot better about this hire after hearing about how a former player felt about him

    We should be able to get a good indication of the reaction of players next year if we look at the reaction of players to him this year. All I know about him is based on what I've read on CF (which means that I'm very confused and trying to sort it out).

    1. Not sure how many games you watch, but I've seen more short passes to wide open guys just be completely missed, and that has nothing to do with scheme.

    2. Really hope you're joking here. But then again you were probably one of the same guys telling me Knott and Klein wouldn't be upgrades because they didn't start the year before too. Happens every single year on every single team where you lose a senior and someone steps up even better the next year even though they were on the team the year before.

    Your kind of cherry picking certain lineups here (also Jarvis West was in our top 4 for WR for sure). Just take a look at what we were putting on the field, especially late in the year, that talented RSFr class was all over the two deep mixed with a few Sophs on the OL. West, Woody, White, Duck, JB..our skill set as well as OL heavily leaned on underclassman. As for the WR's in the program I think the guys we have redshirting along with this class coming in is the most talent we've seen at WR is a long time. Point being, no matter how you slice it the future of our Offense looks much better than it did only 1-2 years ago. More than enough to build a solid Big 12 Offense around if they work hard and run a simple and fundemental skeme.
