    Why does Wally get a pass?

    Everyone complains about Mess, and rightfully so. But, our defense is pathetic. Basic 101 kind of stuff that's not happening. Bad tackling. We never blitz, EVER.

    Our defense is currently ranked 117 out of 123 in total defense. Yet no one seems to pin anything on Wally. Just because he's an old experienced coach doesn't mean he gets a pass. He's no Dick LeBeau.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    Gotta agree a bit here. The O had moments today that they D needed to help more than they did.

    Plenty of heat from this season to spread around.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    We're too slow to do anything a GOOD defense would do. Wally consistently makes the right calls for a GOOD defense, but there's no such thing as a good call for a BAD defense.

    We just have no talent, unless they run right into us.

    Why do we always try to blame one thing? The entire team just makes mistakes, and well, really hasn't been good.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    If the season continues as it is going, no one will get a pass. I said this before one way or another, but Jake Knott (and Klein too) covered a lot of problems over the past few years.

    That's for sure. After Jake went out last season all other teams had to do was move AJ to either side of the field and then run the play the other direction. Worked like magic since the rest of the defense was "average".

    Wally has gotten a pass from day one but has consistently put a poor product on the field.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    Why would we not give Wally a pass? He is the only coordinator that has been here and had a unit that was worth a ****. We are playing some of the top offenses in the country and you expect us to be ranked high. OU has I believe the 2nd ranked pass defense in the country and I bet you by the time the play both TTU and BU they will be at the bottom. That with the fact that we lost Knott and Klein explains quite a bit about this year.


    If you cant dazzle them with brilliance; baffle them with bull****.

    That's an excuse. Last year we had 2 NFL linebackers (granted Jake got hurt but was there for over half the games). With 2 NFL linebackers we should have been better. They were good, as a team, not so much.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    I think a lot of our problems are coaching problems, all-around. Playing DB's 10 yards off the line of scrimmage on 3rd and short, ****-poor tackling, penalties, offensive play-calling, RB shuffling (taking the ball out of the hot hand)... It's really just an all-around terrible plan for this team and our record reflects that. Add in injuries and we look like a bad FCS team.

    No one gets a pass when the ship is sinking. This defense is atrocious from start to finish.
    Unless they're too tired to play when the game starts, it just comes down to being awful.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    Iowa State should never have a bad defense with a head coach that was a former defensive coordinator, what position does CPR coach anyways if any?

    The defense was pretty good last year until Knott got injured.

    Re: Why does Wally get a pass?

    Wally's position group(LB) has consistently been the best in the conference, and on our team. He's taken players that were picked over and put them in the NFL. Our D hasn't been great this year, but we lost A LOT last year. George leads the conference in tackles and is constantly making the right plays. We have a lot of young corners, as they get older you'll see.

    Haters gonna hate.
