    ISU's most effective offense

    It seemed late in the second half we started rolling Sam out of the pocket more. I believe we were really starting to see more success with this type of passing play. Last year we had a similar style of offense when we played Kansas (although I believe we did it last year because we couldn't get a nice pocket around our Qb). Wondering if others have noticed this or if I was looking too much into it.

    Obviously we have to get the most out of what we have, so what do you think ISU's best option is at this point?

    Re: ISU's most effective offense

    We need a healthy quarterback who is able to run. If that's Richardson great, if he isn't able to run he can't be on the field. We aren't good enough to be completely one-dimensional and Richardson isn't good enough to beat you with his arm if he struggles throwing like he did Saturday night.

    The oline needs to get much better before we win. They are the biggest weakness right now. Who is their coach?

    Coach K

    I disagree with this. Did our Oline get handled at the line of scrimmage? Yes. But if you tweak the offense from "Run Heavy" (which we clearly cannot do) then the next option is do different types of passing plays to setup the run.

    I agree a healthy Sam makes our offense waaay better, but I think had the coaches simply made some adjustments (admit they couldn't do what they wanted to) we would have fared much better (easy to say in this situation I guess).

    All I know is that we are going to kick some major *** when they start putting endzones on the sidelines. We dominate the east/west short -2/2 yard passes.

    Re: ISU's most effective offense

    If we want a healthy Sam than we can't run him. He is not Blake Bell. It's as simple as that.
    For example, see: Jared Barnett, Steele Jantz.

    Houston, we then have a problem because the qb needs to run the ball with this scheme.

    I noticed this exact same thing. If our offensive line can't get the job done by creating a nice pocket, why not roll him out more to buy some time.

    It seemed like when Sam just dropped back staying in the pocket, he had absolutely no time to let the play develop, but once he got outside a bit, we were able to get the ball down the field much better and let our WR's get some separation...

    I am expecting to see more of this as the season progresses...
