    Pinstripe/ Liberty Bowl = Deja Vu

    Playing a team the fan base is overly confident we should beat.

    Cyclones start sharp.

    Offense sputters, then all units seem to lose life.

    Tackling is terrible, Team gets down, and stupid penalty ties ensue. I feel like I'm watching a replay of last year's bowl game:

    Bad tackling and an offensive line that sucks = loss 90% of the time

    Throw Minnesota in there too, that game was a battle to see who would lose.

    Rutgers was a solid team at least. ISU handles a team like this in the regular season more often than not and certainly doesn't get pounded by them. "Fire Mess" seems to be the rallying call but bowl prep has to be an issue.

    Yeah Minnesota was just as bad, except Minnesota sucked worse. We are horrible at bowl prep

    Haven't seen the replay yet. Did Tulsa blitz as much as Rutgers?

    I don't think Memphis made a bowl game this year.

    I was thinking a similar thing. Whatever plan for bowl prep Rhoads has, he should toss out and start from scratch on a new one next season. It has not been pretty.

    I have to agree, even our defense let us down and did a better job against better Big 12 offenses most of the year. However more offense obviously helps the defense and after the first few series our offense looked lost when we couldn't run the ball, and that's on Mess. I don't understand why Woody didn't see some carries to see if he could pound out some yards, but I haven't understood that for at least the last few weeks when he's apparently been completely healthy. I think the talent is getting better and good seasons are ahead, but the bowl prep has to be looked at.

    What would you have liked to see us do offensively in response to all the third down blitzes?

    They didn't need to, their d-line was raping our o-line.

    Something different than what we did. Anything involving misdirection, quick-slant, middle-screen, anything.
