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.
    Yeah, a safety in the box with an inexperienced defensive line is probably not going to happen. Those safeties need the extra yards and angles to prevent a 12 yard run from turning into a 60 yard run.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    ...some sort of an established system where ISU does 3-4 things well that they can build off for a game and the season. A bowl game is a lot easier if that happens.

    In Mangino's two years, I think he'll do his best for that part.

    Otherwise--Line play on both sides that doesn't look like a scout team for the opposition.

    If this doesn't happen--look for 4-5 wins.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    We are 5-15 in our last 20 games. We gave up an average 45 points per game in the Big 12 last year to teams NOT named KU. We didnt score on our opening drive last year. Dead last in sacks. Dead last in getting sacked.

    I will be absolutely shocked if we win more than 3 games this year. I would be pretty pumped with 3-4 wins this year, especially if we start showing glimpses of closing the gap on a few teams.

    ISU gave up an average of 35.6 points per game in the Big 12 to teams not named Baylor last year. That stat is just as pointless as one that excludes ISU's shutout last year.

    Look...We were not a good team last year no doubt. Given that we were also within a td in 3 losses(not including Iowa) from being not a good team that won 6 games and went to a bowl. We also had a top 20 or so schedule. Some look at it last year and say we were 3-9 and awful therefore we will suck this year. I tend to be a little more optimistic and look at it like we were in a lot of games that we had a shot at winning with a very very young team and an oline that had no business being in the big 12 at times given the injuries. I agree we weren't a good fball team but look at everything that went wrong....**** poor play calling...qb shuffle...best rb injured..entire oline injured.. A lot of youth..etc..

    as of right now every single one of those things is gone and you add to that arguably one of the best OC in cfball and I'm more excited than some. Every offensive position will be better than last year. I think we will see by mid season that we have a pretty good group of Lbs as well. If we can find a couple guys to step up at DT and just be avg then I don't think our dline will be as awful as everyone thinks. We will be fine at DE. Just my two cents. Yes we have holes to fill on defense but what team doesn't.

    Re: Stuff you want to see this year

    1) leadership, 2) confidence, 3) unity.

    1) Want to feel good again about where our Coach is taking the program. Want to see vocal leaders for each unit when they are on the field. Whoever the QB is, take charge of the huddle.

    2) Players need to feel like they belong on the field with Big XII competition. Love the Levi Peters persona... hopefully it's contagious.

    3) No more factions as apparently existed last year. Two and three star talent has to play together and outsmart 4 and 5 star talent

    This! The Oline has got to produce this year. Way to much experience and depth to be ineffective. If that doesn't happen I will have serious doubts moving forward. I do think we see significant Oline play this year though. I may be drinking the kool aid but I think our offense has a shot to be...dare I say...dangerous?

    If the defense can just create a fair number of turnovers (which Wally's D's tend to do) and not break in the red zone (which Wally's teams tend to do) a few times a game we've got a shot to win more games than people think.

    Actually that's still horrifyingly bad so is actually pretty interesting.

    Didn't we also get a safety last year on us by going into shotgun on our own 2 yard line, then handing it off to Jeff Woody going sideways from a standstill 5 yds in our own endzone? That was a thing of beauty! Mess really had the defense fooled on that one.
