    Thanks for your input and page views, Doc.
    Pretty straight up analysis Chris. I don't hear a lot of excuses.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Also, here is another excuse. ISU is 1-7 at JTS since moving to their new locker room and giving the visiting team an upgraded locker room. I said at the time that it was stupid we were upgrading the visiting locker room. Not that this is the reason this program is heading downhill, but just want to point that out. You should never have a 1-7 record at home over any stretch of games. NEVER.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Guys Chris has a product to sell too and he's also close with the staff. It's his job to not completely put down the staff and players. Put yourself in his shoes, it's his business and livelihood.

    i too thought the bison guy was crazy predicting that score and all of you thought the same thing 6 hours ago.

    Starts and ends with the pathetic football team we saw today. Little children would have given a better effort. Get beat, that's fine. Quitting in the face of adversity is a cowardly action.

    Would you want to be?

    1) you're just dealing with a horrible loss. Probably not having a lot of fun with Cyclone Football right now.

    2) so many people are mad/disappointed/whatever, it's going to dominate the call in show. So, a few more hours of negativity to cap off a day that was already hard.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Caller: Is it discouraging to you that we can't run a screen play on offense or stop one on defense?

    Chris: Yeah…well...

    Jack: The first we ran worked.

    Chris: Was Farniok in on that play?

    When you start calling out people as a host you have lost. Are you going to stop taking calls on your call-in show?

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    I actually feel bad for CW/Whitver because the schedule just gets more brutal. When we're 0-5 after taking some major curb stomps from Baylor, Oklahoma State and probably K-State, they are going to sound 10 times more distraught.

    But then we'll beat Toledo and CPR will give a passionate postgame speech and all will be right in the Cyclone world

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    So because we won the 1st quarter and got destroyed the last 3 quarters today..... that makes this a better loss than the UNI loss last year where we lost the first 3 quarters and won the last quarter?

    Who cares? Both losses were inexcusable and never should happen. Both UNI and NDSU manhandled us and made us look silly. And when I say manhandled us, I mean physically we didn't deserve to be on the field with them IMO. We got blown off the ball on both sides.

    And Rhoads actually says afterwords that our defense is young, inexperienced, and not deep.... and that our offense is brand new and will take a while to gel. Really Paul? You are in year 6 Paul. Why is our defense young and inexperienced, and our offense is all brand new?

    Good grief.

    Dude, if you dont understand the significance of Farniok on a screen play, they just leave and dont come back until basketball starts.

    It's an excuse, but he's not making excuses.
