    Good stuff, as usual Blum.

    The Big 12 is full of high-octane machines that can be catastrophic to defend. Yet, Iowa State hasn't given up 36 or more points in regulation since October 2011 when Mizzou put up a 50 spot. That is a remarkable streak of 20 straight games -- the 5th best such streak in the nation. The schools with longer streaks: 1. Alabama 2. LSU 3. Cincinnati 4. Florida.

    Wally.
    So how has the defense stayed afloat in the beast infested waters of the Big 12? They create turnovers. In the four years of the Rhoads/Burnham regime, the Cyclones have procured 23 or more turnovers every year. The only two BCS schools who have also done that in the last four years are Oregon and North Carolina.
    Those are some crazy stats for the D. Wally is truly a wizard. Hopefully the trend continues this year.

    Never averaged 35 points per game? Good night, that's awful.

    Sounds like we can get there. Let's get there.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Nice read. That was every bit as good as a glitzy hit tape! Nice job, Blum! You mention that 12 of Rhoads' 24 wins were as underdogs. Have we lost in any Rhoads' game where we were favored?

    In 2009, weren't Rosie Magitt, Austin Alburtis, Nate Frere and Chris Lyle all upper classmen with upper classmen build and maturity though. We are playing young inexperienced DL this year.

    The fits and starts in the passing game become even more accentuated when looking at individual games: Iowa State was 6-0 when their quarterbacks completed 60 percent or better in 2012, 0-7 when they didn't reach that number.
    WOW. That is a telling stat.

    Maggit was a freshman, Alburtis a Junior. Frere and Lyle were seniors, but Lyle was in just his 2nd year from JUCO.

    Thanks for reading! Iowa State was favored in losses to K-State in 2009 and @ Colorado in 2010.
