    Good story Chris. I hope that all his work in the offseason can pay dividends this season.

    Did Brun do any better blocking on bubble screens during the Gridiron scrimmage? He could be a great weapon out there on a CB.

    Thanks for the insight Chris.
    Based on the title I thought this was going to be an article about EB's back story. I always enjoy personal interest stories because it is interesting to hear how student athletes end up at Iowa state.

    Re: Ernst Brun's story - he's come a long way

    I'm excited to hear that Rhoads is planning on using Boesen this year. That was a guy I was excited about joining Iowa State since day one. Having a 6-6' TE is huge, especially in the end zone. From all the interviews it seems like the coaching staff loves Boesen. Very excited to see Bibbs as well. I think TE will be an extremely strong position for us.

    Re: Ernst Brun's story - he's come a long way

    Brun must be a hell of a guy. Typically you don't come in from JUCO needing to take a RS because you are uncoachable and in two years become a captain over people like Farniok and Shontrelle. That's a hell of a transformation.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Yeah, some of the pro teams have only 6-2 TEs.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Good stuff. I think a solid TE (or two or three) could be the difference maker for ISU. Seems like even last year, getting a 3 or 4 yards up the middle would have been helpful many times.

    Brun and Bibbs working the middle of the field with Bundrage on the outside. Along with a couple really good pass catching RB's out of the backfield (Really excited about Wimberly). Throw Jarvis in there making some plays. We definitely have some weapons in the pass game this year which should open the field up for our stable of RB's

    You could tell by just watching Brun before and during the scrimmage that he's a leader. I'm excited to see what our tight ends can do this year.

    If anyone is curious about the play he is talking about: Iowa State Football Highlights vs. Tulsa - YouTube
    he did get man-handled pretty badly.
