    Messingham says Richardson needs to 'Go Win Games' - Ames Trib

    Football: ISU wants Richardson to make plays, decisions that win Cyclones games | Ames Tribune

    So, now it's not the fact that he's being told to run plays that are just completely stupid but it's the fact that he's not giving the team a chance to win.

    Richardson takes Messingham’s comments to mean he must understand the offense at the same level as his coordinator. He thinks he’s a step behind with the system and considers film sessions with Messingham the solution to closing the knowledge gap.
    “The most important thing is just knowing what plays are good against what kind of look, studying the defense more and more is what makes that better,” Richardson said.
    Yeah, I disagree 100%. Spending more time with Messingham is probably a BAD idea.

    I'm all for putting the team on the QB's shoulders, but as the OC to dump on your QB (who, by the way, tried to save the game for you and almost got killed) is a little trashy in my opinion.

    Hopefully you got your crap together, Mess...otherwise you may want to call Manny Diaz and ask him how retirement is.

    Yeah I read this earlier and was just blown away. It's Messinghams embarrassing playcalling that kept us out of the UNI game, not Richardsons gameplay.

    Call two bubblescreens on second and 1, both for loss, and you're gonna blame your QB for it? Get out of Ames.

    While I am one of the biggest Messingham detractors Rhoads and everybody who re-watched the game has pointed out that there were lots of times when he ran for a short gain or took a sack where he should have checked down to one of his backup options at receiver. He's not costing us games right now (which is a huge difference from the past few years at QB) so the next step in his growth is to start winning them for us.

    yeah, I'd prefer a coach to shoulder more blame and say something like "It's my/our (coaching staff) responsibility to put Sam in a position to be successful by calling the right plays against the defense we're facing. Sam can then focus on execution"

    Not a big fan of that kind of comment from a coach.

    he must understand the offense at the same level as his coordinator
    Give him 15 minutes, a wall, and a bag of poo and he should be at the same level as Mess (especially as a 2nd half coordinator).

    Re: Messingham says Richardson needs to 'Go Win Games' - Ames Trib

    I know you guys didn't play college football but come on. All he is saying is that the QB needs to go to the line of scrimmage with the play that is called, look over the defense, make the proper read (it comes from watching film) and adjust the play based on what you read.

    Some of you take any little thing to jump on anything.

    Watch the TT/TCU game from last night and you will see the TT QB doing this alot.

    Its a pretty simple concept.

    I cant wait for this guy to leave Iowa state, I really hope CPR is looking for a replacement. This guy is not a BIG 12 level offense coach. He is at best above average , in the BIG 12 you need to be great. We will never crack more than the 6 win season with this guy. Even in interviews he has no energy, he looks more like an accountant that a BIG 12 OC.

    Right. And he didn't learn it in a vacuum. A qbs ability to do this well relates directly to the OC.

    Exactly. Reading the defense and making the proper checks at the line is an area where Sam can definitely get better.
