    Re: Blum: Steele Reversal

    I would like to think Cyclone Nation remembers former players for the good, not the bad play. Bo Williams isn't remembered as a 4 star bust, he's remembered for his career game vs. aTm. Barnett will always be remembered for OSU. Steele for the 4th quarter comebacks, and the last ISU QB to beat UNI.

    Had there been off the field issues, then they might not be as fondly remembered, but Steele I think will be a legend in our eyes in a couple more years.

    Re: Blum: Steele Reversal

    Jantz played like a Heisman contender in year one of the Cy-Hawk, but it felt like we never saw that kid again. But we will always have that memory......over time the other games will fade away.

    I have no ill will toward Jantz. What I will remember about him is his inconsistency. He could be the best player on the field and the worst player on the field in the same game. But, not ever going to hate on a hawk-killer.

    I will always remember Bo Williams and the time he showed up alone at a Block and Bridel social, slide up and down a stripper pole, and dissapered into the night. Never to be seen from again, much like that A&M game.


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    Re: Blum: Steele Reversal

    Jantz was that guy that was always trying to push the limits of what he could do. He forced things when he needed to and when he did not. For some reason he simply dropped the ball at times, that is one think we will never know the answer to. He is still a guy that I feel could have done great things if he had come to ISU as a true freshman, redshirted and got some good, consistent coaching. (As it was, he was all ISU had and they threw him out there. He could have had better guys to throw to also.) He definitely kept the game exciting, and he was magic for a few games, and ISU fans don't get to see a lot of magic.

    That pretty much sums up my thoughts.

    Jantz had some really good moments last year as well.

    Jantz was like a combination of Seneca Wallace and Bob Utter.

    Re: Blum: Steele Reversal

    2011 Jantz I'll remember all the great comebacks and very little of the bad that went with it.
    2012 Jantz(and really the entire offense) I'll remember a lot of the misplaced hope in having an explosive offense after the Tulsa game.

    FIFY. Freddy makes sure there is plenty of magic in Hilton.

    Couldn't agree more.
