    Thoughts on ISU behind black and gold glasses

    http://thegazette.com/subject/sports...lones-20140605

    Marc Morehouse from the CR Gazette breaks down ISU this season as part of his running column talking about Iowa's season opponents. Chalk this up as another media member that thinks ISU has no chance in Kinnick.


    Yeah TOAST!!!

    With how lousy we were last year I'm not sure you can really blame them..

    Seems like a fair assessment.

    I wouldn't say that he thinks there's no chance, but that it's unlikely. Pretty fair article that really gave a lot of credit to the offense's potential while noting the defensive problems we might be looking at.


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

    Sounds like a fair assessment to me. Pretty much exactly what most people are predicting.

    This.

    I can't find a thing wrong in his write-up. If the game is inside 20, I'll be somewhat surprised. At the same time, if we win - I won't be all that surprised either. These games have been true rivalry games where anything can happen and little goes as expected.

    Re: Thoughts on ISU behind black and gold glasses

    Two years ago we were clearly the better team--just so many red-zone issues, but we found a way.

    Last year's time didn't find many ways.

    It would be a big upset, sure, but it's not impossible. Not counting on it at all, though--prefer maybe a home upset over K-State or something--on the way to (hopeful) six.

    Re: Thoughts on ISU behind black and gold glasses

    I don't know why you'd predict much different given last year's poor showing and our apparent need to build some sort of chaperoned dorm/prison to keep our defensive line out of trouble.

    Yeah because teams can't improve from one year to the next. Remember when you guys went 4-8 in 2012?

    Morehouse is about the least biased guy in the Iowa media. Him and Dochterman do a great job with their coverage.

    Totally agree. Morehouse is by far my favorite sports writer in the state. Obviously, he covers the Hawkeyes, but he's always respectful and typically has a very balanced point of view.

    Re: Thoughts on ISU behind black and gold glasses

    I agree with most in this thread. This is a fair shake from Mr. Morehouse and based on the W/L's from last year, and how our defense performed, I can't say I'd write anything any differently.

    that was a really good write up in my opinion. I agree with almost all of it.

    Good article but missed a ton of news worthy data in that piece, specifically key additions/subtractions is way off.

    "The Big 12 has 10 teams, so everyone plays everyone. Itís a real conference in every sense of the word."

    I concur.
