    ISU Linebackers

    Here is a shout out to the two best Linebackers in the big 12, Klein and Knott, both being on ISU's team and preseaon First Team All-Big 12. I personally feel that these two don't get enough love and publicity and really deserve it. They are by far our best two players on our team and rarely even get discussed. I don't want to hear the excuse about that position not getting any love in general because I remember how much love Hodge and Greenway got back when they were with Iowa.

    While I couldn't cheer on Knott at the Spring game due to his injuries, did anyone notice Klein out there? The dude was a mature stud commanding the defense around like he's 35 years old and everyone else is 20 years old. His play also reflected his maturity. Knott is the same way. It is nice to know that no matter what, we don't need to worry an ounce about that position because it is taken care of.

    Iowa State has the best linebacking corps in the Big 12.

    Klein, Knott Preseason All-Big 12 First Team - Iowa State University Athletics Official Web Site - www.CYCLONES.com - The home of Iowa State Cyclone Sports

    Agree, gotta give the guys some love. Both lead our defense by example and don't seek attention or thanks for the tremendous job they do.

    I have a feeling that I'll be raising my glass to AK47 and JK20 this season many times.

    I hear they are following Rhoads and have packed it in already in May.

    Our defense is going to be nasty this year. Go Wally!

    I'd put them up against anyone with CJ having another year under his belt, and Miller and George showing what they can do this spring.

    we're not going to win anygames...
    We don't have anything that's big 12 caliber, ESPECIALLY at QB.

    (Do I really need this?)

    Re: ISU Linebackers

    With talent and depth like this on defense, anything less than 3rd in the Big XII in PPG allowed is a disappointment and could lead to a sub-.500 record. Of course, the offense needs to be less of a liability, but I think the point still stands.

    Since this is a no respect/no recognition thread in the first place, it deserves a bump
