    Cotton quote, does he have a clue?

    This is from the Des Moines Register today from Barney Cotton

    'Cotton credits defenses.

    "In the fourth quarter against Iowa, for example, we did not excel when Iowa slid a safety over to help out and take away the deep passes," Cotton said. "Their coverage was designed not to give up anything big, and we not only did not get anything big, but we didn't get much of anything."

    He said that has to change - the sooner the better.'

    Gee Barney, do you realize that you can make adjustments during the middle of a game?

    I read this comment and either Cotton did not notice what Iowa was doing during the game and is only commenting on it after he watched tape. Or he noticed it during the game and did nothing about it, tried something and it did not work or ??

    When we hired Cotton, I think everyone agreed this was a great hire. He has turned out so far to be a major disappointment.

    Barney figured it out on Tuesday after watching tape. Somebody else told him, not own his own. Gee, Barney, what happens next? Oh, Texas!!!
    Adjustments, during game??? The Play Book has to be bigger than your IQ!

    Re: Cotton quote, does he have a clue?

    We should set up a Fan Hotline where we watch the game on TV Saturday and call back to Austin to tell Barney what the announcers say we should be doing. A little long distance scouting assistance call?

    Well I would hope that we can beat UNI , Texas, not so much.
    I want to be proud of this team/staff, and the only way that can happen is for them to maximize this teams performance for 12 Saturdays with a week, or two, in between to prepare.
    So by your's and ISU Fan's theory, if we assume that through three weeks this team has maximized its potential, then I can see why you would be happy.
    However, if this team is, through three weeks, maximizing its potential, then that is an even bigger indictment against the coaching staff because in 12 years they have obviously done a horrible job recruiting, and should be fired immediately so we can bring in a different staff who MIGHT be able to RECRUIT.

    When we end up the season 9-3 as Big 12 north champs, I will come back out here and post about how stupid I am and that this is the greatest coaching staff ever assembled. Until then, I think it is fair game to be critical of this staff especially when I read quotes like above.

    Given the amount of posting you do and the amount of posting I do, I could never keep up.

    Again. It's fine to be critical and still be a fan. I don't see what's wrong with that.

    I thought so as well until I was "educated" on the topic in several other threads. There's a small but very active contingent who evidently believes if you're critical of the coaching staff, you:

    1) don't support the team,
    2) want ISU to lose every game, and
    3) should become hawkeye fans.

    Being critical is an ENTIRELY different thing than demanding the coach be fired 3 games into the season. Being critical is what fans do. I've been in that "small but very active contingent" but I just want to focus on the team and this season instead of saying Mac should be fired ASAP. But criticizing the coaches for game plans, plays, etc. is perfectly acceptable in my book.
