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

    I can assure you Yancy McKnight is not the problem. He's probably the furthest thing from the problem
    YEAH! Yancy cant be the problem because you read too much into an article about treadmills!!

    How bad did we get manhadled up front by UNI, Iowa, Oklahoma State? Now wait till this Saturday... We will again see where we at against similar players. Run defense is big indicator of strength.

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

    Just curious, what were the ages of the DL's for those schools? was it RS jr's and seniors going against our RS fresh and sophmores? Man against boys? I don't care how good of a strength training program we have, putting a 19 or 20 year old kid up against a 22 or 23 year old man is going to not result in positive results too often.

    If the ages though were equal, then we are getting flat out whipped.

    No problems with how the skill position players have developed or most of the defense.

    The offensive line is worked too much to put on good weight, and I don't care how tall you are but you aren't going to get push at 280 or 290 pounds.

    Granted it shouldn't happen, but UNI actually has some really cool stuff going on in their S&C department and also in their Athletic Training/Athlete Health department. The strength programs were really designed to take these guys that are smaller and might have been passed over by schools like ISU and Iowa, and give them some sort of advantage over those players. In many cases, this is speed. I might be smaller, but if I use correct technique and I hit you first because I'm faster, I'm going to win even if your muscles are bigger.

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

    What happens if you fall down and miss the runner which happened a lot last week?

    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.

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

    The number of MCL issues we seem to have is fairly indicative that our leg workouts aren't building up the muscles in the upper and lower leg together properly so that knee ligaments aren't destroyed.

    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.
    Boy, if being qualified to have an opinion on things is a requirement to post this website is going to get awful quiet.

    I had an Oklahoma State fan ask me Saturday after the game if Iowa State even used the facilities.
