    Saturday at Texas... Reminds me of the Pinstripe Bowl?

    So apparently you can watch the bowl game from last year online?
    2012 New Era Pinstripe Bowl: Rutgers vs Iowa State - YouTube

    With TX's defense being bad vs. the run but decent against the pass, it reminds me a lot of Rutgers last year.

    The first three plays were all big runs. Then pass x 3 (all incomplete).

    I felt in that game frankly we were out coached. We gave up on the run way too early and too often. Is anyone else feeling that way?

    Hopefully if ISU sticks with the run this Saturday, the outcome can be different!

    Rutger's having the 7-0 or 8-0 run or whatever made me feel slightly better about the pinstripe.

    hate hearing about Greg Schiano all the time down here tho

    After watching it a little more, I noticed that Jantz actually did pretty well in the Pinstripe. Good passes, but some drops.

    Doggone it ISU needs to run up the middle more! Love that Woody 20 yard TD run. Would like to see the 2 back formations some this weekend.

    If our RBs don't carry it 20 times, we won't win. Sorry, Mess has to be more open in the running game with the RBs with Steele back there.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I still have nightmares of the Pinstripe Bowl. Only in my nightmare ISU ran White up the middle for an 80 yard touchdown on the first play from scrimmage and then didn't run the ball again the rest of the game.

    Oddly, this is fairly close to what actually happened ...

    Yep... ISU racked up 41 yards rushing on 3 carries to open the game and then Tom Herman stepped in and put a halt to that. I was beginning to hope that Rhoads was going to grab a dry erase board and write a message to Herman so he could see it in the press box that said "You're fired! I am calling the plays from here on out!" Sadly that didn't happen.

    Yeah, I have to say, when Ohio State took Herman, I was a little surprised and not too awfully disappointed.

    (Wasn't Herman known to be leaving before the Bowl game? Maybe he was just experimenting and didn't care who won or lost.)

    I believe he had already accepted the job at Ohio State but decided to stay on at ISU for the bowl game. It was his last chance to royally screw over the Clones.
