    Telling me to relax is making me more nervous. It's like when a doctor says this isn't going to hurt than resets a dislocated thumb.

    Coach speak doesn't scare me, but youth playing that close to the ball on defense sure does. I've watched the other team in the state enough to know you don't just lose a lot of experience, put in the next man, and move on without a hitch.

    Hey I'm not saying that there won't be hitches. I've been saying for months that I think next year is a rebuilding year. But there's a difference in rebuilding with no hope and rebuilding with a ton of young talent. Get my point?

    Yes. Sit back and enjoy next year for what it is, all the while licking your chops for 2014 and 2015.

    Re: Monday Musings: Just relax

    I think we take our lumps this year. IMO our defense loses some special talent with Jake and AJ but also Jmac up front and a widely underappreciated J Reeves.

    I could be over compensating but for some reason I just feel like this is the year that the offense finally takes a step. I have thought that previously as well but for some reason I cant seem to get over this feeling this year. Maybe its the fact that there are so many unknowns that makes me hopefull. So many young players have the opportunity to step it up. If they do so this could mark the year that we all look back to and say "That is the year that ISU program really started to show it was going to make a run". The talent (although unproven) on offense this year seems to be the best in the CPR era.

    I love the fact that we changed things up on the OL with Coach K. Love that intensity. I also like the sounds of what the pistol has done, keeps the defense honest (cant use the RB as a key).

    Call me bias but I also think that without the defense there to use as a crutch thinking they will always bail us out maybe things open up a bit. Get the playmakers at WR, TE and RB the rock and let them make a play. Rhoads mentioned in his video that players are making more of these big plays and making people miss.

    Maybe Im just wasted on koolaid (is this copywrited?) but Im excited.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Re: Monday Musings: Just relax

    For one, I'm really relaxed. I am going into next year with no expectations given what ISU lost on defense. My take: I'm going to the games no matter what and I will root for my Clones no matter what. It may be a tough year, but I think it will be so much fun to see these players develop before my eyes.

    Or when you go in for a physical and he has you bend over and then says, "you're going to feel a little pressure."

    Chris,

    Nice shout out to Denny and the Royals Radio Network. Always enjoyed his dulcid tones and dry humor. I remember going to sleep listening to those late night west coast games. Fred White was pretty good too.

    Hmmm... I wonder what the next "joke" to get relentlessly beaten upside the head with over the coming year will be?
