    Re: Washington Post Article on Knott and Klein

    I've been noticing over the past year that the Washington Post publishes a lot of articles (in their online edition, at least) about Iowa State. I've always wondered if it's some kind of syndication deal, but I think it's neat.


    I noticed that during the low periods of my life, when I was suffering from anguish, sorrow or defeat, I could see only one set of footprints, so I said to the Lord,
    “You promised me Lord, that if I followed you, you would walk with me always. During the most trying periods of my life there has only been one set of footprints in the sand. Why, when I needed you most, have you not been there for me?”
    “Because,” says the Lord, “Sandpeople always ride single-file, to hide their numbers.”

    Clearly it's because the Cyclones are America's team.

    Re: Washington Post Article on Knott and Klein

    The Cyclones opened the season by allowing 16 points in the first quarter to Tulsa. But Iowa State has only allowed 16 points since then
    That is a great statistic.

    Re: Washington Post Article on Knott and Klein

    The article talks about how similar they are. However, IIRC, Knott came in being more serious about learning the defense and listening to the coaches. Klein came in more cocky and took a while to do the hard work and listen to coaches in order to become great.

    Re: Washington Post Article on Knott and Klein

    I remember klein's freshman year, the very first day of practice a reporter asked Rhoads if anyone stood out. He said AJ Klein definitely stood out above the rest.

    I don't think he meant he was the best LB at that time or anything, just that as a freshman, he was already "playing with great pad level"
