    2011 Texas game vs 2012 Tech game

    What needs to change? Im sure CPR has a new plan cooked up for these two weeks of practice, but im leery nonetheless.

    For starters, we can't turn the ball over as much against tech as we did vs Texas. Stupid personal foul penalties cost us as well. The texas game was 13-0 in the 2nd qt. despite how poorly we were playing. The defense forces a punt, until LJ gets an unsportsmanlike penalty and Texas scores to go up 20-0 shortly thereafter.

    Despite all the turnovers and foolish penalties, our offense came out flat and played awful. What needs to change this year to prevent that from happening again?

    Just my short 2 cents, but we have to get off to a good start (which we have for the most part this year) and have the crowd in the game. It seemed like against Texas last year our crowd was pouncing to whoop it up, but whether by fumbles or stupid personal foul calls they were diluted and never really got a chance to have an impact on the game.

    Good news is that 2012 doesn't have half the talent the 2011 Texas team did, especially defensively.

    Don't you think part of the reason we came out flat was because we stuck with Jantz, hoping he could still play at the high level we had seen in the first 3 games, when it became clear too late that he couldn't? Don't get me wrong, the fact that this game sets up eerily similar to the Texas game last year is the scariest thing about it, but I feel like a fairly healthy offense is an obvious difference this year.

    L. Johnson is gone, so the personal fouls should not be an issue!

    The only thing that needs to change is the fumbles and INTs. If ISU can elminate those from the game, i think they have a great chance of going 4-0. However if SJ turns into Santa Claus again handing out too many gifts - then ISU is in trouble and the excitement that this program has at the moment will deflate a bit. If ISU comes out strong and wins this game, the balance of the season should be sell outs and the JTS will be one of the toughest places in the conference to play - maybe we can call it Hilton south!

    Well, the last bye week we had, we beat #2 Oklahoma State. I think the necessary adjustments to the bye week schedule were made.

    Re: 2011 Texas game vs 2012 Tech game

    Yes we were 3-0 last year as well, but those three wins were totally different last year. This year we have a dominating win over Tulsa as compared to needing heroics to beat UConn. We beat Iowa in their house and led the entire game rather than needing a once in a lifetime game from Steele to give us a chance in OT. We don't really have a comparable game to last year's UNI because Western Illinois is certainly not on that level. But instead of being 3-0 by the skin of our teeth and some luck we are instead 3-0 via dominating performances and a defense that isn't giving up much of anything.

    We drove really well for most of the games against Tulsa and Iowa. That bodes well for keeping our defense off the field next Saturday. This year we can point to one thing that desperately needs fixing: Turnovers. Clean that up and we'll be 4-0 and confident heading into the TCU game.

    I also remember the crowd wanting to make an impact. The place went nuts when we stopped them on fourth down, but we fumbled immediately afterward and let the air out of the stadium.

    If I remember correctly, the Texas game was when for some unknown reason they turned the volume down on the new video board. I hope they do not make that mistake again! Crank up the volume and the crowd will get into it just fine.

    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.”

    That's ok... 2011 Texas didn't have half of the offensive talent we have.

    That may be true but 2011 Texas had 10 times the defense that you have this year. No offense but your defensive stats so far this season aren't fooling anyone. The more telling sign is the fact that your defense has surrendered 30 points to teams that don't even have a pulse.

    How again do you know this? Texas demolished Ole Miss at home and put up 66 points doing it. That win alone is more impressive than anything your team has done.

    Well, not having the 2011 Texas defense on the field will be a huge boon.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    But Al against teams on the level of Savanna State, Texas Tech has played shut down defense?
