    Don't Go Crazy

    Dear fellow Iowa State fans,
    I know that we had a terrible game, but don't go crazy mad. We definitely do not want this board to turn into what HN is like after their bad losses

    Signed, Jaime Pollard

    We have a championship caliber defense. We need the offense to be average or better, and we'll win some games. Right now, it's looking fairly unimaginative. And yeah, let's not get silly.

    But our offense is inept.

    Re: Don't Go Crazy

    If we had ANY qb and offense worth anything with this defense we could rape the **** out of the big 12. I think we have earned the right to go crazy. 180 ******* yards..... that's ******* it! I've watch middle school football games with better qb play.

    Championship caliber defense?

    That's just bizarre that you would sign that Jamie Pollard. ARE YOU CRAZY?

    Re: Don't Go Crazy

    We may have a very good defense especially relative to what we're used to at ISU but we aren't "championship" caliber.

    We're solid but I'd had to rank us 3rd or 4th in the B12 right now defensively

    Re: Don't Go Crazy

    I agree with the premise of the OP. Everyone should step away from ledge and not have a major meltdown. It's not as if we lost to Central Michigan or someone of that caliber. TT is a decent team. Anyone on here expecting to go undefeated is delusional. While I agree it is a missed opportunity, we will make it up with an upset or two down the road. How about a big upset over TCU on the road?

    Re: Don't Go Crazy

    Well, look at it this way, we're melting down, but at least we're not arguing about how much CPR's contract buyout is, and then doing the 'wailing and the gnashing of the teeth' when we realize what it is, and for how long, because we fell 'in love' when it was really a one night stand.

    It's not the loss, I can handle a loss, and almost expected one tonight. 3 in a row against Tech would have been tough to pull off. The problem I have, is the consistent lack of offensive production. It's just so disheartening. In this league, there is no way it looks like we'll win another game with that kind of offense. Our Defense is good, but when they play most of the game, they are going to give up points.

    And the kicking game, What The ****? How, at this point, in Div 1 College football, can we not find a kicker who can make and extra ******* point? No matter how many times they suck me into believing things have changed, this kind of game rolls around and I go, "Oh well, classic Cyclones!"

    True, but I still don't like the people who are currently saying that our offense is absolutely terrible
