    Arceo

    With the game last week focusing so heavily on Knott and Jantz last week, it seems like the normal "what's the deal with our kicker(s)?" conversation has gone by the wayside.

    Is Arceo back in the good graces of Cyclone Nation now? Is all talk of bringing in the freshman over?

    He's still not good... And they are not willing to burn a red shirt.

    I think he has done well, short of the odd missed kick and the extra point thing.

    We'll never stop complaining but I think the "bring in Netten" chants are done. We're in the last third of the season, if CPR was going to pull Netten's RS he would have done it already.

    Done well? At d1 level you should not miss a pat, unless blocked. He had missed 2 or 3 this season.

    He can't kick a kickoff out of the endzone...

    Not sure how you are grading him...

    Versus some of our past kicking woes. He seems to have ironed out the XP problem. I'd prefer that he kick it out of the end zone, but that is what it is. He is not an all star kicker by any means, but I don't have the feeling of impending disaster when he goes to attempt a field goal.

    Re: Arceo

    What is the point of red shirting a kicker? Is he really going to get that much better after sitting out a year?

    Last time I will post this!!! We are not asking him to kick touch backs, we are asking him to kick it to about the 5 and then cover and tackle before the opponent gets to the 25.

    Allowing the kid to get stronger and get more practice time will never hurt anyone, though. If he wasn't going to win the starting job out of the gate, why not red shirt him instead of wasting a year of eligibility on the sidelines?

    This was from the Big XII Blog on ESPN:

    3: Missed extra points for Iowa State. That's the most in the Big 12, despite attempting the second-fewest extra points (26) in the Big 12.

    If they were about the same that the beginning of the year, why not RS him. Then he has a year to get stronger, and we have the possibility to have him here a year longer. Which would be great if he became really good.

    If he can't win the starting job we should have used the scholarship on another kicker or used it on anothe player and just gone with the Juco kicker route. Other teams have great kickers that kick for multiple years if we don't have one why waste a scholarship if we can get the same thing for free.

    It's my understanding that kicking in high school and college is quite different because you can't use a block for field goals anymore. You can still do that in HS football though (I think...)
