    Dear lord I hope not. Unless they're to Wimberly and we have Brun out there blocking, I hope we never ever run a bubble screen again.

    Not a lot of minced words about play calling there.

    For as bad as ISU was running the ball, they probably should have just been passing on every play and tried to protect with a blocker in the backfield. When they look at the film they are going to see a lot of guys running free in the Iowa secondary on passing plays.

    Rhoads seems to love him some bubble screens. Ick...I will have to go back and rewatch the game to see I can find those 8-10 yard bubble screens he is clamoring for.

    If they run a bubble screen I hope they at least package it with a run play to take out an extra defender.

    What does Bubble Screen Mean?

    An offensive play in which an eligible receiver lines up on the wide side of the field and cuts quickly towards the quarterback immediately after the snap to receive a pass. The offense will attempt to get a series of blockers out in front of the receiver so that the player can gain yards after the catch. The bubble screen is considered a quick hit play, and is used to get the ball in the hands of a quick player as fast as possible.

    I think what you are thinking about is a WR screen, where they throw the pass to the outside and try to block it with a WR. The bubble is when the WR comes to the QB and then tries to break against the grain of the defense. Did not see ISU running this very often.

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads teleconference transcript, injury updates

    I really don't agree that we couldn't throw the ball deep. It seemed like we didn't even try. I mean, I don't know. I suppose he knows better than I. The way that I saw it, was that we would have guys run deep routes, but that we would have our short routes be the first passing options, and Richardson didn't move off of those. We need to be using the button hooks and short crossing routes as our checkdowns.

    But we absolutely cannot give up on it, as it seems like he thinks we should. If we need to have Woody back there on passing downs to pick up the blitz, that's fine, but we've got to have a deep-threat component. A finesse run style (the zone read) doesn't work well if they are playing everyone--CB's, LB's, and Safeties--close to the line. And it's a lot harder to run a bubble screen or 5 yard cross (as we seem to like) when the coverage is pressed up with no real threat of a deep throw over the top.

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads teleconference transcript, injury updates

    He mentioned in the post game presser that they should have ran more bubble screens. Everyone on here is saying to throw the ball more down the field but everything he is saying is just the opposite of that. Prepare to be disappointed.

    Let me know what you see on the 4th and 4 one. I am working to forget this game, all of it, but I still have a hint of memory that that was a cluster up.

    Thanks, I had those two mixed up. Maybe the bubble screen works, but I hope we never, ever, ever run a WR screen again.

    Oh, I remember that one clear as day. I'm just not certain if my rage from that play call and execution is blocking my memory of some "good" bubble screens.

    Seems to me that the only success we had was throwing the ball deep. And by deep, I am going to define that as past 6 yards, because it seems to me like our throws are either to the flats, or they are past 6 yards. There was some definite success on some post patterns that stretched "deep" past 6 yards, and a nice button hook that Bundrage busted for the TD.

    Re: Notebook: Rhoads teleconference transcript, injury updates

    Any sort of perimeter oriented pass is there or not. I didn't have a great view of alignment during the game but if he's saying it was there, I am guessing they were leaving guys "uncovered" which means there's no one over them, therefor we had the out numbered, yet we didn't throw it out there. To me, any uncovered slot should be an automatic quick hit right to him.


    It's all snark from here on out

    I thought the Rhoads comments concerning play calling very interesting. I do not think Rhoads is very happy.
