    I've read too many Register articles to this. Care to give me a quick run down?

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    The O-Line is key this year IMO. If they can protect the QB on a regular basis, the offense could be great.

    Now for the defense...

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    I think Farniok's comments echo exactly what many posted at the time how awful Klenakis and Mess were.


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Man, these guys really hated Coach K and Mess. IMO, that suggests there actually could be a significant improvement this year, as perhaps the biggest problem wasn't a lack of talent.

    Offense could be average. But still a huge step up from years past.

    Yeah, I guess you are right. But its still going to be great for ISU standards.

    Don't forget many on this board who also blamed Bill Bleil for last year's O-line performance.

    Re: Tom Farniok comments in the Rag

    Offense could be average. Defense looking to be not good. How does this translate in the Big 12 with lots of points being scored....(just paraphrasing post here) I am worried to be honest. Still hoping for a miracle (6+ wins)

    I hate coach speak and player speak. Probably said the same thning before last season.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    We gave 110%. Total team effort. It was us versus our coaches out there, they wanted to grind our self-motivated players into the ground, and de-emphasize unity.

    It's all just player speak...

    So is the Register a bad newspaper?


    You probably think I'm at a disadvantage, I promise you I'm not
