    On-side Kick

    From the opening kick, CPR showed he was going to take every opportunity to put us back in the win column. This was one of the most entertaining games I've witnessed. No matter how bad Baylor's defense may be, they are a dangerous team. I don't think I've ever seen a team go for so many 4th downs as Baylor. We beat them at their own game. Congratulations Cyclones! Beat the Sooners!

    Re: On-side Kick

    The onside kick was the start of a strange series of events

    *Onside kick
    *Big play for Baylor right off the bat
    *Fumble into the end zone
    *Large amount of penalties to move down the field
    *Missed short field goal

    When Baylor started with the ball at the 20 with 8:00 left in the 1st quarter, me and my friends were saying that we were basically starting the game seven minutes late after one of the stranger starts to a game that I've ever seen.

    Don't forget punt error on Baylor.


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Re: On-side Kick

    An onside kick in unexpected situations is one of the best statistical plays in football. I don't care on the few times it doesn't work, it's a missed opportunity to go for seasons without using it like most teams do.

    Rhoads said in the post-game interview that a play like this gets in the opponent's head even if it doesn't work.

    Re: On-side Kick

    This probably would have been better to see against Oklahoma instead of Baylor. Do it against a team we have less of a chance beating.

    I'm guessing the logic was that we want the ball to start the game and to set a tone. We take the ball every time we win the coin flip for this reason. I'm guessing the coaches also figured that with such a high powered offense, the risk was worth it because they have a high chance of scoring anyway. Especially on the first drive of the game which is often scripted.

    Just my guess.

    And I just realized I have no idea if we won or lost the toss, which could make that whole post irrelevant.

    I agree. Baylor had a couple of weird kickoffs: one going out of bounds at 35 and a pooch ball into an area where we had no one to catch it.

    This one actually almost worked for them since we were lined up for the onside recovery.

    The 2nd one about worked for them.

    Re: On-side Kick

    I loved the call. With our defense, I wouldn't mind if we tried it more often.

    Re: On-side Kick

    I didn't see it clearly, it was a dribbler up the middle right? Not a pass kick? I love the pass kick.

    I love the pass kick too, but I think it is illegal cause of new rule instituted this offseason. Probably cause ISU was too good at it .

    Re: On-side Kick

    Mahoney was good at the onside...last night it didn't go 6-7yrds?

    I liked the call...like coach said, gets in their heads and has high upside when it comes out of the blue.
