    I would rather face third and 5 than have third and 1 with our offense.

    In the last few games it seems like every time we have 2nd or 3rd and 1, we have gotten stuffed running between the tackles. In a recent game we had 2nd and 1 and we were stuffed twice in a row. I realize that earlier this season, we have made first downs and touchdowns with Woody and a yard to go, but recently our backs have not had a chance. I would rather have 3rd and 5, because we would probably attempt a pass and the opponents pass rush would flush our QB who could then run for a first down. That worked several times against Texas.

    Against OU....I hope we just quick kick......maybe we catch them off guard and slow them down where the clock runs out before they hit 70.

    Out of pure curiosity, anyone know when ISU last ran a play that began with our QB lined up directly under Center?

    I told a guy at the bar right before the play I will bet you $20 they line up in the pistol with Woody and run off the right side only to get back to the line of scrimmage, welp Im $20 richer today.

    Re: I would rather face third and 5 than have third and 1 with our offense.

    Our inside-runs out of the pistol take WAY TOO LONG and we do not alter when we snap it very often. Timing is poor/slow and snap-count is too predictable.

    The offense is more predictable than Iowa which is saying a lot.

    I'll admit, I'm one of these guys, but not as the primary runner. If we are going to do our, "OK, here comes a run up the gut" play call. Then have woody in there as a lead blocker, not the ball carrier. Seems so many times on these, if we could clean up one last guy, it would get the 1 yard, plus probably another 5 or so. This year seems to be the story of, "If we only had one more guy blocking."

    should be every time there is less than 1 yard to go.
