    Well, if you made it up, it sure feels like it was true.

    The Case IH Redzone thing. If that annoying thing is being played on the video board a bunch, it is a good thing.

    No more of that stat that said we scored a TD or FG most of the times when we got to the red-zone. It was irrelevant, as we could almost never get there!

    Can I add "a full student section?"

    Sounds like roughly 500 student tickets aren't sold, if I can trust that sales e-mail.

    I can't remember which game it happened, but they played that promo right when ISU crossed the 20 yard line facing a fourth-and-one situation. My brother and I just looked at each other and started laughing.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    Wouldn't it be nice to see us go over the top on plays early in drives, see the opposing defense adjust, only to see our offense change pace and pick them apart underneath?

    Put a different way, I want to see a proactive offense. One where the opposition has to adjust to us. Would like to see a plan.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    I want to see us be smart on both sides of the ball.

    Defensively, that means I want to see guys in the right position to make plays, and then of course make them. Also tackle smart too. Use good fundamentally sound tackling skills instead of trying to make the big hit and not getting them down on the ground at all.

    Offensively it means that I want to see an offense that attacks the weak spot of the defense and enforces their will on the defense, not the other way around.

    Nothing ticked me off more last year than in the UNI game running our starting QB more often than all the rest of our RBs combined! Why? We are the Big 12 team and they are the FCS team, not the other way around. We don't let their defense dictate to us what we have to do. Hand the ball off to your RBs and let them do their thing. Throw the ball to your WRs and let them do their thing. But don't let UNI dictate to you that you will HAVE to run your QB to death in order to beat us. And we did run Sam nearly to death and he wasn't the same the rest of the year.

    And then against Iowa, everyone and their grandma knew going in to that game that Iowa was great against the run and were susceptible to the pass. But Mess decides in that game that he's going to try to establish the run for 3 quarters and he gets nowhere. Then, when the game is finally out of reach, he decides to test Iowa's secondary, and we all saw what happened. But of course we'll never know what might have happened had we tested their secondary all night long, will we?

    Just play smarter than the other team this year on both sides. Because in most of our games we will not be the more talented or physically dominant team. We will have to play smart to win games we're not supposed to.

    Our offense play up to their potential.

    Wally call a run defense against running teams. Not giving a 10 yd cushion to any of NDSU, Iowa or Kstates WR not named Lockett. Putting a safety in the box against all 3 of those teams the majority of 1st and 2nd downs. We know the Dline is bad load the box, take out the hybrid LB/S and play a hard tackling LB and stop the run against teams that need to run. Play the bend and break zone against spread teams, and go for turnovers.

    Get your resume ready for when Wally retires sometime in the next 2-3 years I'm guessing.
