    I'm here to discuss football. That's all I do. I can't help the fact my opinion is different than yours. Well I suppose I could help that fact, but then it wouldn't be my opinion.

If you don't want to see my opinion you don't have to. Pretty simple concept.

    However, the majority of discussions we've had over the past couple of months have been beaten to death and there won't be anything of substance to discuss for quite some time. So I'm fine with taking a small break from the CyFan boards until the season is right around the corner. Hope you Nancy's thicken your skin a little bit before then!

    See you ladies and gents around the last week of August! Here's to hoping all Cyclones and Hawks stay outta jail in the meantime!

    One more thing... Someone might want to tell the ISU A.D. that this is false advertising:


    Rhoads is 27-36

    Pretty funny stuff.

    Section 110 is Jon Miller, right? Has to find a way to get someone to respond on a message board - any message board - so come over to CF & start trolling.

    Btw... There's a sliver of a chance that Iowa could land Justin Hilliard this morning (top ILB in the country). I'm not getting my hopes up because he's probably going to OSU or ND, but there's always a chance! That would be amazing in itself, but it also sounds like he and Jashon Cornell will likely be attending the same school so if it happens it could be a two-for-one bargain!

    We don't care about Justin Hilliard or Jashon Cornell. Remember this is a Cyclone forum? You just can't help yourself. This is not a hok board. It serves only your self serving purpose to interject Hok garbage into every thread. Please don't come back after your "leave of absence" break for summer.

    It's really something when every football thread turns into an In-State Rivals thread.

    It was interesting for a while. Now it's just outright trolling.

    Better defensive stats for ISU: number (national rank - out of 125 teams)

    Points per game: 36.7 (106)
    Yards per game: 463.7 (102)
    Yards per play: 5.9 (94)
    Points per drive: 2.29 (79)


    Contrary to popular belief, ISU wasn't on defense the whole game:

    Percent time of possession for opponent: 48.28% (41)

    Whatever excuse you may have, looks pretty obvious that the defense just wasn't good. And it's concerning because we still aren't going to be able to apply any pressure on the QB. That doesn't bode well for inexperienced defensive backs against a pass happy conference.

    Our best fiend Phil Steele has ISU 2014 defense ranked #127 in scoring defense, #127 overall defense, and #126 in pass defense (out of 128 teams).

    I think he might be spot on. It has potential to be one of the worst defenses in Iowa State history.

    Re: Our D - better than advertised

    There is exactly one thing that will make me believe this defense won't be straight up bad. Their play in the fall. No words are capable of doing it for me.

    Re: Our D - better than advertised

    Since they're advertised in the bottom 5-10 nationally, better than advertised might not be a stretch.
    Just have to prove it on the field, if they can.

    Re: Our D - better than advertised

    Usually when we see pre season mags predicting one side of our team being on of the bottom 2 or 3 in the entire country it usually does not happen. Just because we are inexperienced at certain positions doesn't mean our defense will be bad. Although we will be playing one new corner and two new safeties I think that Cotton and Mutcherson are both more athletic than Bloom and Washington were. Bloom and Wash were decent but didn't have great speed or quickness on the field. I also think our LB core will be 5-6 deep and all will play and rotate. Harris will be productive, sounds like the light turned on for Miller and Knott(if healthy and sounds like he is) is very smart and a good athlete. As for the D line, yea they might not be great(when have they been?) but with Jensen back and if just one of the JUCO's is playable on the interior then we should be better than most would have thought 6 months ago. Morrisey is a stud and we have 3 other DE's coming that are unknown(who knows 1 or 2 could be studs?).

    Further I can see Wally changing things up this year and we may see a defense that has great speed but inexperience and we may see a lot more blitzing than in years past. Wally knows what he has and if we don't have a D that can just bend but doesn't break than Wally will be blitzing every other play to apply pressure. I for one think that this defense is going to be fun to watch and see grow.
