    Are we far enough along to evaluate Yancy McKnight?

    I haven't been too impressed. Our team is plagued with injuries and seem to be less physical than every squad we play.

    People praised Yancy prior to this season.

    Physicality is as much coaching as training.

    Your point is correct. But you see too many of these young guys out there thinking. They are not reacting. That leads to tentative football, and more importantly, weak football.

    Agree. It would be a lot less frustrating if the problem actually was a matter of getting pushed around. Our blocking sucks, but more so because of teaching and scheme. Hell, people were complaining about our Olines back when we had KO, Lamaak, Haughton, Hicks, Stephens, etc.

    Re: Are we far enough along to evaluate Yancy McKnight?

    I think we start games too slow and need more on field passion. We are more like troops going to work than sellout players. These three and outs at the start are killing the passion of the game. The defense eventually breaks down and the game starts to slip away. We really need to come out playing hard on the first play from now on. Perhaps this is a reflection of team leadership, perhaps not. We need Leonard Johnson and Sims type passion. Even CPR looks too calm at the start.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    I would bet 1% of the folks on this board are remotely qualified to have an opinion about this. I know I sure as hell have no way to know if he's doing a good job or not.

    Offensive production, defensive lapses, et al, sure you can see the end result and assess a lot to the coaching. But strength training? Injuries can't be a good measurement of that. I have no idea what would be.

    I would evaluate a S&C coach based how how tough physically the players are. We have been abused up front by guys half our players weight, telling me pound for pound even UNI has stronger men, physically, up front.

    And that's happened in other seasons as well.

    I don't know the answer on this guy, but it's certainly a fair question to ask.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Worst part is we are about to see what just how bad the S&C program is on Saturday. If they run for 400-500 yards on us, there should leave little doubt how good Yancy is, even though everyone can seemingly point the finger at him already due to the Iowa game, UNI game, so on and so on.

    There is such a thing as tough and then there is aggressive or mentally tough. Unfortunately it's hard to teach some kids to be aggressive, some either have it or they don't. It's easy for a kid to dominate in high school because he's a mammoth compared to the other kids on the field. When they get to college they are all going to be your size or bigger.

    So now it comes down to technique and who wants it more. I'm not sure how much has changed when Coach K came in, but there could be some different techniques or calls that might be affecting our play. Plus, the injuries and we are what we are.

    If it was me I would have put the Godfather of the pistol at OC and had him calling the plays.

    It's a good thing you are an accountant and not a S&C Coach Talent evaluator. ;)
