    Re: Blum: Past and present

    the only thing that concerns me is the "Past performance is no guarentee of futur results."

    winning the Okie St games and @ Nebraska and @ Texas Tech.........those are in the past and CPR has to figure out how to get results going forward. Let's face it, Klein and Knott are not walking threw those doors. K.O. is not going to bust through the door and play O-Line again. For the first time in a long time, ISU has quality skill position players - however the lines are about as bad as they have been in 25 years. The game is still won in the trenches even with these high flying offenses.

    Re: Blum: Past and present

    This team is now where near the crap we put on the field in the mid to late 80's. Most of you have no idea what it was like sitting thru pundings (and I meand poundings) of Neb, OK, Ok State, Iowa year after year. Not to mention getting beat by the lower half of the rest of the Big8. The only saving grace to going to the games was you could bring containers in with you. Hell, we lost to Drake at home the last year they were a D-1 progam. What I saw Sat night reminded me of those teams. I just hope in was a single game let down and we get back after it this week.


    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought, cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives…..

    The o-line is bad but I'm still of the opinion the d-line is somewhat solid, we just haven't seen it for the last couple weeks due to the quality of the opponent.

    I'll have a gallon of what Blum is sipping.

    I'm sorry, but something has to be done on offense. Accountability has to happen. Mess has got to go.

    It was not a let down. We were trying. We were just outrun, out talented, out blocked, out coached across the board.

    Re: Blum: Past and present

    This was a great read, but depressing at the same time. I didn't realize we'd only won one Big 12 game since the OSU game two years ago.

    I really don't see the message you were trying to get at here Blum.

    This is a problem given that they keep score in these games.

    It would be kind of hard to win 3 Big XII games last year if that were true....

    I actually had to laugh when Paul Rhoads was telling how good and experienced that Corey Messingham was as Off Coordinator.

    The only problem I have with that premise, is that the product on the field aka the offense doesn't say that thee MESS is even an average Offensive Coordinator IMHO.

    114 yards with 4 minutes remaining in the game says that either thee mess is a bad coordinator or that our recruiting is really bad, getting beat is one thing, but to let a Baylor team beat you by 64 points is Unacceptable, regardless who is the head coach and offensive coordinator.

    Cliff notes: The Oklahoma State win two years ago feels a long time ago. Losing by 64 is not fun. Just because you are in year five doesn't guarantee success. I'm confident in Rhoads to keep his program moving ahead by doing whatever is needed to be done. Drink tickets are good.

    And yes, maybe I am drunk on kool-aid. Thanks all for reading.
