    A lot was learned tonight..

    First, most on here didn't think we would win any way. I thought our d line improved a lot from game 1. Yea Weismann had 150 yds but on 35 carries and against a pretty physical oline. I thought our secondary played worse than our lbs and dline honestly. Iowa had wr's open a lot. Second, this team didn't quit...let me say...this team didn't quit. I think it was a very god thing that the offense pit together two td drives late and the passing game really came on last 10 minutes. They have been out of rythym since the start of the year and just started clicking. Knott is going to be a stud, period. We have some lbs redshirting who have the size to come in and play next year and that is good. Our defense improved a lot, Irving's light came on and that bodes well for his season and next. We are a really really young team guys but there is talent there. If we can win 3 big 12 games I will be pleased.

    If we win 3 Big 12 games these will really sting. At least ND looks almost as bad as we do. That's nice.

    Very, very one dimensional team, and we couldn't stop them. We're F****D against good teams!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Meh I think a better offensive plan and we win. If this d showed up last week we are 2-0.

    That still adds up to 2-10 but better than where we are now

    We learned that UNI was not a mirage.

    We learned that we are not a running team.

    We learned that tackling is good.

    --dback summary for Cyclones: It is not 1982 and we are not the Redskins. No more smurfs. There are hundreds of quarterbacks and wide reiceivers out there that could be recruited and developed into very servicable defensive corners and safeties at a Div. 1 level that might not play in their high school position. Many of them are taller than 5'-6".
    --I like your optimism. Have you watched the last two bowl games? The Pinstripe and the Liberty Bowls?

    Our D never quits, despite having to play 35-40 minutes a game. The O needs to play well before the game has already been decided.

    Re: A lot was learned tonight..

    Defense was fine, you can't expect them to play the entire game and not give up any points. You have to score some points, they were out there for 38 minutes, that just can't happen. Just way too many 3 and outs.

    Offense was hard to tell. Line is all banged up, basically the line was a thrown together after Lalk went down. Bundrage is a stud, that was established, now Mess can figure out a way not to get him the ball from now on.

    SR was hurt, not sure he should have been out there but coaches felt it was better to go with him. I still can't figure out why the running backs are not getting the ball more. Bruns said it best, if we aren't going to run, then don't run, let's sling it around.

    Still a pathetic performance offensively. But we are so beat up, hard to tell.

    Too level-headed. Need to drink more. Sky is falling.
