    The Cyclones will be as green as a floret of broccoli at linebacker next season.
    The man wields the English language like a swashbuckler with a saber, the words leaping and parrying from his keyboard, pausing a moment to stroke his Van Dyck, before stabbing back into the fray.

    Well done, my friend.

    I really like that he thinks like a QB! I think that could be a big asset to his early development!

    My plan is to go position-by-position and do updates on young guys leading up to spring ball so stay tuned!

    CW, what do you think our next expected tram finish in league will be touted by the B12 people - same as last year? We look young.

    To add to that, you might get a guy or two pick Iowa State to finish 8th based off of the fact that Rhoads always seems to overachieve. That helps.

    Good read. I'm still quite nervous about losing two studs like Knott and Klein, but it's gonna be interesting to see how these guys are

    Re: BLOG: Early arrival could pay off for Alton Meeks

    For those fussed over how little linebacker he's played,, remember that Leonard Johnson had only played a little defense during the playoffs in high school.

    I'm still kind of agog that we have two talented linebacker signees who BOTH missed most of their senior season due to having a broken leg...


    Go Cyclones!

    Great article. Meeks will definitely get lots of playing time. Great that he enrolled early. IMO, he will be a good one.

    A broken leg doesn't concern me as much as a knee or some sort of ligament. It's not any more likely to break again.

    Not sure if that's what you were getting at though.. I don't know what agog means.
