    "We Made Tulsa Look Pedestrain"

    I guess I'm borrowing CW's quote of Ben Bruns here, because those few words got my attention.

    I mean, my first reaction was, "Maybe Tulsa simply is pedestrian."

    Then I thought about it, and no, they have some good players. Maybe even some very good ones, and solid coaches. I don't think this Golden Hurricane squad is going to wind up being a mediocre squad.

    Besides, altogether too often our Cyclones have made opponents--especially opening opponents--look better than they really are. Do I really need to give examples? 000

    So, what does that mean? Simple enough. CPR's program is growing up.

    Finally, an ISU football program is Big XII caliber--like it's supposed to be. Now, let's follow the next steps forward from here.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Did Willie Carter even play? He had no receptions and no rushing yards. I assume it's because we shut him down, but I might have missed an injury or something.

    John Walters kept talking about where Carter was lining up, but he was not available as a receiver because of good coverage. Not sure why they did not give him the ball to run.

    Look at their QB situation.... they are pedestrian with him vs their last QB.

    no injury. He had one catch for basically zero yards. I believe it was Givens who was in coverage and tackled him right away.

    They kept trying to throw to him at the end and either our d was doing great cover or he was dropping the passes. Must have been ~1/7 for catches for him for the day.
