    Re: Monday Musings: Labor Day Edition

    Any insight on what the heck happened to Jeramiah George on Saturday night? Probably the single worst performance compared to expectations of the entire team. By far.

    Who do you think will be kicking fieldgoals against Iowa?


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

    I would be surprised if it was not Netten. I think CPR will go with whoever is on until proven otherwise. Netten obviously was on, Arceo was not.

    As I noted at the bottom, I'm going to write about that on Tuesday. I'm gathering information. Such a sensitive topic. I don't see the point in jumping the gun.

    Apparently you can't make All-Conference in the weight room...I hope he turns it around, seems like a great kid.

    Re: Monday Musings: Labor Day Edition

    *** When I first took at look at Iowa State’s peculiar 2013 football schedule, I hated it. Two bye weeks in the first four weeks of the season? That’s horrible. For any other team, yeah, that is accurate. For this team, this year though? Well, it is exactly what the doctor ordered.


    Say what you want about Saturday night. It is what it is. Iowa State lost to an FCS program in its season-opener and everybody from Paul Rhoads to that obnoxious drunk guy in the south end zone to Cyclone Jerry left Jack Trice Stadium angry.


    You’ve had nearly 48 hours to be mad. You’re fans. That’s what you do. But at some point, you do have to move on. Trust me, the team already has.


    So now, let’s consider what the next two weeks are going to be like for Paul Rhoads’ youthful Cyclones. One can only imagine that they will not be pleasant. Rhoads, Courney Messingham and Wally Burnham have more film from Saturday to teach with than we can even comprehend.


    Rhoads’ teams bounce back. They always do and they will again. Losing to UNI does not necessarily mean that Iowa State will go 2-10 this season. Now don’t get me wrong. Saturday night was far from encouraging.

    It was deflating. But considering how young this group is and how much talent is on it, the Cyclones have more room to grow than any I’ve ever covered at Iowa State.


    When it comes to teaching and developing, I’d label that a strength of Rhoads’ staff so there’s your feel-good thought of the day.
    This says it all, and just what this board needed. Thanks, CW, for being level headed.

    Edit: Looking forward to news on Farniok's injury, CW.




    Paul Rhoads' players never quit.
    (They just disappear offseason)

    Re: Monday Musings: Labor Day Edition

    If there was ever a game, heck even a season that CPR and CO will earn their paychecks its right now. My biggest concern is that this game was eerily similar to the lack of effort and intensity we saw in the bowl game. The good news is we had to wait 8 months to get the bad taste from that game out of our mouth, at least its only 2 weeks this time.

    Re: Monday Musings: Labor Day Edition

    The lack of intensity and urgency is the most troubling thing to me.

    Re: Monday Musings: Labor Day Edition

    Do we have a lack of leadership on this team if intensity was a problem for the first game?
