    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I want to see a few of the young/new guys on defense show that the talent level is actually picking up. Some combination of Cotton-Moya, Mutcherson, Tribune, Meyers, Madison, new Jucos.

    A QB to step up and be the man.

    A few big hits against Texas. Too bad Mike Davis is gone.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    It really does come down to me a statistically Top 5 in conference total offense. A lot a things I'd like to see to get there make that happen:
    confident starting QB (Sammy vs. KU 2 years ago & Rohach last year KU&WVU)
    healthy cohesive O line (same starters throughout the season, subs and felt need be, not out of necessity)
    EJ Bibbs being as hyped (prob easiest to come true)
    WR's besides Q become known consistent quantities
    Wimberly & Nealy combine for more that 1,500 yards on the ground
    Less than 2 turnovers max per game (preferably never more than 1)
    No penalties on 1st down

    If this ever happens I've got minimal worries that the D can hold up and keep us in the game.

    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:

    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    I suppose if we get some positive results from it then that will change. Also it's a little better since Coach Rhoads isn't stuffing "no huddle" and "fast tempo" quotes down my throat so far.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    Mine are kind of specific but if they happened I would view them as a sign of our progress on offense

    1. Win an offensive shoot-out. The closest I can think of is the Tech game in '10, we won 52-38 but it felt closer than that in the end. If we can show that we can pure-and-simple out score someone on their best day, that would be incredible.

    2. Step on someone's throat who isn't named KU. I want to beat someone down, bad. Like '11 Tech game that ended 41-7. I'm tired of us calling of the dogs in wins so the other coach/team/fans/whomever doesn't feel bad. This is big boy **** here, let's kick someone's *** big.

    Healthy players.
    More sacks
    Opposing quarterbacks getting blown up
    The ball travelling more than 5 yards in the air on a pass play
    Less 3 and outs

    And solid special teams. Long kick-off returns after a score are so demoralizing.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    Would "more points on our side of the scoreboard" be too generalized?

    It's still ok to step on KU's throat, though.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    One starting QB throughout the entire season, with reps given to the others as needed.
    No embarrassments like Baylor last year.
    6 wins, since I am expecting only 2-3. Would love to be wrong.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    Score on first possession.

    I thought I saw a stat that ISU punted or turned it over on every first possession they had last year. (hopefully I didn't just make that up)

    Fixed your fourth point.

    To compete! leaving it all on the field and know that they gave 110% on the field. That is what I love to see winning or losing!

    In what will probably be another terrible season, I'd like if there's a chance I could enjoy watching a game or two.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I wonder how much better we would be if we had 1 QB take every meaningful snap this season. Quit splitting reps and putting them in dangerous situations they could get injured.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    Anything but our offensive coordinator showing our QB's and RB's clips of SportsCenter highlights, while poking them with a stick saying "You see here boy, you have to do what they do".


    I don't always drink beer, but when I do, I prefer Dos Equis.
