    I have no knowledge of who will or won't be starting on the OL, but I can't imagine any newcomer would be considered on the 1st team after just 1 day of practice.

    Some people are prognosticators, some are seers, some are generalizers, some are like prophets Nostradamus. Bobby must fall in this group.

    Rhoads came out and said that's his starting OL. Bobby isn't guessing.

    My theory is that Oni won the job over Glenn and Lalk with his play last year and this spring, and they've seen enough of Taiese now to understand he isn't going to be ready to start in 3 weeks.

    Hopefully this allows that starting unit to really gel over the next few weeks.

    Bobby La Gesse ‏@BobbyLaGesse 5m Rhoads said this year was best first three days for Clones since he got here. Added that it doesn't necessarily mean much w/out full pads

    Rhoads also added that guys like Campos and others will be in the rotation and that Brock's knee is a concern so Campos will be getting PT. Rhoads said that the starters will likely be the starters but those backing them up will still be playing so take it for what it is worth. Not really earth shattering news.

    Here's my shot at the first 11 on the field when the Cyclones start their first drive against NDSU.

    Rohach
    Wimberly

    Bundrage
    Montgomery
    West

    Bibbs

    Dagel
    Burton
    Farniok
    Omoile
    Gannon


    You feel the floor give you a little tingle, man, Iowa State junior point guard Monte Morris said in a private moment after the game, leaning against a wall in the bowels of Hilton Coliseum. You feel it. You feel it. Its real. You feel it on the court. Its a tough feeling to explain. Its a vibration. It gets you going.

    He paused.

    Its magic.

    This comment is rather meaningless -- I think we've heard similar things before ...

    Re: Camp Notes

    In the interview with Jake Campos (yesterday), he stated that it is "easy" to block when you have Taiese playing next to you. My best guess is that by the Iowa game, the coaches will be figuring ways to get Taiese on the field for a substantial number of plays.

    OK, from what I remember, Brock Dagel had a cut on his leg that got infected. That's what supposedly kept him out of the spring. Nowhere did I see anything about a knee issue. Am I missing something?

    Maybe Chris Williams can clear this up then.

    http://cyclonefanatic.com/football/n...e-line-is-set/

    Campos arrived in Ames as a true freshman at 255-pounds. He is now up to 285. Campos is listed as a second-string left tackle behind junior Brock Dagel, who missed the spring due to a knee injury. Rhoads noted that Campos took a handful of snaps with the ones on Tuesday.
    I would add that in Rhoads interview after Day 2 practice that Rhoads said Campos would play as Rhoads doubted that Brock Dagel would be able to play every snap because of his knee injury from the spring.

    Re: Camp Notes

    Maybe it's just me, but I look at our offensive skill positions and see a ton of talent. Now I'm hearing a bunch of good things about our offensive line. Add in Mangino calling plays and I think we might be in for a treat on offense.

    Now if Wally can scrap together a defense, we just might have something this year. I'm cautiously optimistic... I can't wait to see what happens though!

    How much eligibility does Taiese have left?

    His Bio says "enrolled at Arizona Western before transferring to Laney ... named First-Team All-Region II in his only season at Laney …"

    so he played only 1 season but is listed as a Junior?

    Re: Camp Notes

    I believe Jake was specifically talking about run blocking in that instance, where the size is more advantageous. I don't know anything about his pass blocking so I won't be able to comment but that is a slight difference.

    Anyway has anyone been watching many of the fall camp videos online through Cyclones.tv. It seams that upped the commercials and now you have to watch a freaking ad every video, which for the short 2-3 minute drill videos gets excessive. I demand to know who is going to email Pollard about this?
