    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    Nice to hear comments like that about Seeley. Also keep in mind that Darius White is listed with Seeley and separated by the 'Or'. Be interesting to see if 41 is out there on special teams, too.

    Also recall O-linemen last year commenting on Irving's strength and not being able to move him. If he is using his hands and leverage well he can be very effective (sure hoping so).

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    Great to hear about Seeley, that's not a name we'd heard a lot about during camp. It seems like every year there is one guy who is just a monster on special teams, it sounds like that could be him this year. I still expect Meeks to play this year, but it's nice to see we have 5 solid LBs even if he redshirts.

    Love reading Rhoads use phrases like "didn't see it coming" and "he's a natural" in regards to Irving.

    It seems like that move was mainly made because Aka and Cousins aren't ready yet. At least that's how I'm reading the depth chart.

    So Chris, what was the, "You're Mom and Dad say hello" comment? Was he just being a smart *** after telling Randy that his son-in-law says hi?

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    And the beat goes on at kicker..

    I was hoping for something more like "Just when you think you start to have answers in a situation like that, somebody has an amazing performance and makes the decision hard"

    Not this:

    "Just when you think you start to have answers in a situation like that, somebody drops off in their performance"

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    As usual the kicker position makes me nervous...

    Wouldn't feel bad if he'd said that each is doing real good and can't distinguish which is better, but it sounds to me like each one is real inconsistent. More of a better of the bad battle...

    Edit: well I guess I'm not the only one that feels this way

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    Whats going on with Jake Campos. I didn't see him on the depth chart? Is he down the line, or are they planning on redshirting him?

    Not many OL play their freshman year. Got to get them bulked up and ready for D1 play. I would expect to start hearing good things from Campos and Shawn Curtis next year. I'm hoping for big things out of both of them.


    It truly is unbelievable that ISU can have questions at kicker seemingly every year. I don't care if the guy isn't great at 40+, but I am literally holding my breath on PATs.

    There was never a sliver of a doubt that he was going to redshirt. I can't imagine ISU ever playing a true freshman at oline while CPR is here unless we nab an extremely highly rated recruit.

    I disagree a bit. I'm sure this has to be somewhat about what existed at DT, but i think it's more about being a better fit for him o produce. i'd guess they've seen the signs for some time that he might be a better fit inside just by the way he played. It's not what you'd expect from him based on assumptions we make but a few things that were noticeable last year pointed to it. He seemed to play de like a dt. He always held his ground more than penetrating or working hard off the edge. He also had a really good knack/timing of shedding his blocks and closing a hole that appeared open. The few times I saw him do it it looked like what other teams do to our ball carriers that we never typically do. I suppose its a different game inside and with his bod type tough to tell if that would happen inside.

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads answers season-opener depth chart questions

    I am shocked that no one is talking about Lalk starting over Tuftee. I am impressed by it that a sophomore is now starting over a senior. I am really happy about this that someone made the strides to overtake Tuftee because he was always dinged up and struggled a lot because of it. I think the line is really going to show a lot of improvement this year and make the entire offense look that much better.

    I agree. Even though his height seemed to fit a DE, the plays he was making during games seemed to be better suited for DT. I really think he could be a real surprise on D this year.

    That's because they talked about it all over the place in the other thread--and Coach Rhoads himself indicated that the main reason is that Ethan has missed some practice time. Matter of fact, at the start of practice, CPR said they would be finding ways to put less stress on the battered knees of the oft-injured Tuftee.

    What this says mostly to me, is that we'll be in great shape on the line in '14.
