    Its a @#@#%@#@# shame to waste this kind of a defense

    This defense could win a lot of teams a conference championship and it could have given ISU a chance of a 3-5 type finish if we had any kind of offense.

    Not only does the offense not put up enough points it doesn't move the ball to give them a rest or keep them off the field. It really sucks!

    Defense was hit and miss today. They certainly weren't the saviors they usually were. Our soft zone was getting demolished at times.

    They just said 12 straight drives with zero points. That's futile.

    Thirteen drives with three points.

    This is frustrating to watch.

    This.

    Though I will say all the 3 and outs go a long way to making this possible.

    Agree they didnt play well but you cant constantly ask this defense to stop the other teams offense when they are on the field as much as they are. The ISU offense needs to hold up on there end of the deal and produce points to win.

    we are a defensive team in an offensive league. not necessarily a bad strategy, but it will take time to build a strong program here. 6-7 wins still a solid shot this season. and with a bowl win, 8 total wins still not out of the question.

    Over 600 yards of offense to a backup freshman quarterback with two receivers out is bad. There's no way to spin that other than bad. It's just overshadowed because our offense, somehow, was worse.

    Why can't we choose to be both? It's not like we're choosing to suck on offense. We just do.

    Yeah, the defense wasn't great, but holy cow.... How do you keep up when your offense keeps shooting you in the foot.

    There must be something I'm not privy to, but for the life of me, I cannot imagine why we almost exclusively pass when we don't have a quarterback who can throw effectively.

    It seems like common sense to grind it out on the ground, pass when you need to, and keep a good defense fresh.

    This was not a bad performance by the defense. Yes, they gave up a lot of yard but they kept OSU from scoring quite a few times. A little ball possession by the offense would help their performance also.

    Not arguing it was a bad day for the defense, but the offense did not help out the defense today whatsoever. 9 punts and 2 turnovers is flat out unacceptable. As bad as the defense played today, they're the reason why the team was in the game for as long as it was.
