    ? about Wallys D.

    Does his general defensive philosophy have the D linemen occupying spaces (the heavy work) and letting backers and backs do the clean up (tackling)? He seems want to force the run plays to a certain place and tries to make sure the fill is there. Passing seems to be more coverage than pressure the QB. . I have a hard time believing that in 5 years, ISU has not stumbled across a great pass rusher.

    Re: ? about Wallys D.

    That was some epic bad defense last night. When a team features an all american rb and not much else you gotta load the box. Wally didnt in fear of getting beat by the long ball. Well I would have much preferred to see that happen than to watch Johnson run all over us. Our defense looked inexperienced and soft. It looked like 11 followers out there and no one willing to take a leadership role. I am embarrassed this morning. Thats a program setback loss and is going to make for a long year. We have no down field threat offensively and a qb who doesnt know when to throw the ball out of bounds. I realize thats a whole lot of negatives but we sucked yesterday and I expect better.

    Re: ? about Wallys D.

    I love Wally, but if anyone refers to him as a Wizard ever again, the simple response is "UNI". The first 3 drives by UNI were an embarrassment: they did whatever they wanted. The halftime adjustments were ok, but they still moved the ball pretty well.

    On a side note: I thought the days of our corners lining up 10 yards away from the WR and letting them have the first 10 yards before even being close to them were over? Saw that way too much for supposedly having such a talented secondary...


    Yep, this thread has just been pwned.

    Wally is the best coach on the sideline for ISU.

    Re: ? about Wallys D.

    I think Wally is an excellent coach. Its amazing how fast all the games won by the defense last year are forgotten.

    I told a co-worker on Friday that Jevohn Miller wouldn't last the season as a starting linebacker.... Unfortunately, I was more right than I knew.


    I used to be cool. Now... I secretly listen to Abba in my car.

    I really have nothing to add.

    I just wanted to say kudos to the OP on the thread title.
