    Impressive that it was the first time we have had back to back no TD allowed games since the mid 60's, and that time it wasn't even in the same season.

    Re: Williams: A workmanlike win

    Chris, I'm terrified that we didn't show any kind of "killer" instincts on offense last night. Could you help a brother gain a little confidence in our offense's ability to score early and often?

    Re: Williams: A workmanlike win

    It was nice to enjoy an entire game at Jack Trice with no stress at any time. Beautiful weather, too.

    One problem with CW's analysis - Steele Jantz should not get a helmet sticker. You can't say that his stats/game were good with the exception of the turnovers. Jantz has to get this straightened out. Until he does, you can't give him any kudos.

    I would agree, however, that watching all three quarterbacks made it clear that Jantz is the best.

    Re: Williams: A workmanlike win

    I am so impressed with the depth on this team - RB seems loaded, Richardson looked good as QB3, cornerback has 5 solid players, LB is very deep O line has great depth, WR has solid depth. No just stop the turnovers and this season could be very special.

    At first I thought the thread title was "A womanlike win"

    I agree that if we could eliminate the turnovers and stupid penalties, this team has the potential to be pretty special. I'm just not sure I can envision a Steele Jantz that doesn't turn the ball over... he's just a gunslinger and I'm not sure you can completely remove that from him and still have him be effective?

    Also... I'm REALLY excited about the depth on this team too, but I'm not sure the LB depth is as good as you say it is?

    Who will start at LB next year? George for sure, and then it's kind of a question mark. Probably Jevohn Miller, but he plays the same LB spot as George right now, correct? I think getting a JUCO LB might be a strong possibility considering we will have a lot of young guys that might not quite be ready yet?

    LB's - Knott, Klein, George (jr) - then Broomfield (jr), CJ Morgan (soph), and Miller (soph) - I think they can all play - obviously Knot and Klein can't be replaced, but IMO this is pretty decent depth. Maybe Luke Knott bulks up and moves to LB down the road

    Broomfield and Morgan are more of the hybrid type nickel guys that come in on passing downs, and not your every down LB's. They are lacking some of the size you'd like to see from your starting group IMO. But they could very welll be our best and only choices? I just wonder if a Kane Seeley or Darius White will need to step it up and possibly start next year?

    From what I can tell; I think the Cyclones play too many players on offense at the skilled positions and they cannot build any type of cohesiveness or rythmn. ISU plays way too many receivers. They should put their best who have earned the positions then give them a blow if they get gassed (especially when in the Jet offense). Playing seven and eight receivers is there any wonder they cannot build a rythmn. It appears to me that "THE OFFENSE BOGS DOWN WHEN AARON HORNE IS NOT IN THE GAME" (objectively review all three games to see). Go with Josh Lenz, Horne, and Chris Young, spell them with Jarvis West and Jerome Tiller and just let them play. Build up a big lead then work on your depth with the younger talent.

    Believe me; come Big 12 time when we start facing offenses that fight back we are going to need our best players firing on all cylinders.

    Good point on Broomfield and Morgan - we will need to have more size for next year - these guys compliment Knott and Klein on this team, but next year to expect them to step up as starters is probably asking too much.

    I can't argue with that comment at all. It is a bit concerning.

    My Cyclone Reaction co-host Jack Whitver is a BIG C.J. Morgan guy. We were talking about that last night. The guy just looks the part.
