    How we gonna make them pay?

    Seeing as how football coaches follow success, and seeing as how UT had tons of success blitzing the heck out of us, I expect KU and WVU to do the same. How do we respond and get the defenses back on their heels?

    Make them pay through the ground game, and passes that take advantage of the openings they leave. Since the latter doesn't appear to be a strength, I vote for the former.

    We won't. It is a run blitz we are getting anyway....Jantz will hold ball out and hand off to Johnson while a KU linebacker is kissing him.

    At first glance, I thought your thread was about tax policy. Did you know that Pappa John is the Devil? I just saw that on facebook.

    Re: How we gonna make them pay?

    Well a start to solving the run blitz would be simply to PASS on 1st down instead of always running the ball on 1st down.


    The upcoming KU game will be the toughest game of the year because Kansas knows in their heart that they can beat Ia State and make their season and fans very happy.

    Be very leary of this game boys because its a powder keg getting ready to blow up in our face....

    I think I may hate KU fans more than I hate Iowa fans.

    Re: How we gonna make them pay?

    Well, after watching us play most of the season, I'm guessing we won't do a darn thing to make them pay for blitzing us.

    Until I see us run Ernst Brun on a little slant across the middle right into the spot vacated by the blitzing LBs and our QB take a quick 2 or 3 step drop and dump it over the middle to him in the clear, I will not believe we will ever adjust to the blitzing defenses. OR... maybe even a conventional RB screen where you welcome all the blitzers and then dump off a screen right over the top of them for huge yards.

    But instead we stick with our zone read play and run right into it all the time.

    But the TE over the middle on blitzes should just be an automatic hot read between the QB and TE. You tell Brun and Steele that if the LB's blitz, then Brun is to just run into the open spot vacated by the LBs and Steele is just to hit him. You don't even run the play that is called. It's just an automatic hot read between QB and TE.

    And we also hardly ever make an opposing team's DEs play honest and play containment. Opposing DEs can just pin their ears back on every play against us and come after us, because we don't know how to keep them honest by running end around plays like Oregon always does, or more option plays to the outside too. Oregon will run end around after end around to both RB's and WR's until you decide to make your DE's respect the edges, and then when you do, they gouge you right up the gut. I haven't seen anyone in the country make a defense play the entire field like Oregon does. If you don't cover your responsiblities defensively against Oregon, Chip Kelly will make you pay big time.

    I don't want to sound like I think I should be OC, because I'd be horrible at it, but most people know what has to be done to beat the blitz in football. It's common sense stuff. One of the annoucers yesterday commented about how he's seen Texas play a ton this year, and he'd never seen them blitz as much as they did yesterday. Now that should tell you something? Teams watch a ton of film on their opponent, and obviously when teams watch our film they realize that we can't beat a blitz to save our life. We have no answer for it whatsoever.

    10,000% agree. I said the same thing to a friend about Purdue being hungry, and seeing the Hawks as the only thing on the menu they could possibly get. Kansas definitely looks at ISU as being their ONLY chance for a win. They will play balls out and the coaches will sell out. CPR better have them ready.

    just like we did against baylor. kansas and west virginia don't have the talent on defense that oklahoma and texas have.

    Success running the ball usually helps here, we had success against Texas, but fell behind too early to keep it on the ground, our game plan needs to be dink and dunk..... KU does not have explosive Offense but WV does, to me that is the only way we win, keep our Defense fresh, keep their offense off the field control the clock, every time we do this and are successful with this we win, perfect example, TCU and Baylor.....
