    Possibly. They are now playing Marv Seiler replays. Yikes. It's gotten that bad folks.

    Did he state that is why we lost? No.

    Go away - with every post you show your lack of rational thought. Not shocking, considering the source.

    Yep... it takes a lot of discipline to be able to go on radio after a loss like this and not melt down (which i'm sure i would). Like others have said, he is close to the program and doesn't want to rip them too much. But i don't think he's making excuses for the loss, if anything his pointing out that injuries played a role in the loss actually points out the weakness of the program in not having capable backups.

    Oh, and i think everyone's profile should give their "age range" (i.e. 21-25, 26-30, etc) that way I can easily weed out the immature ones :)

    Right, Chris runs an ISU fan site, it's not his job to be overly critical of ISU.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    How does it matter who is snapping the ball when we throw a quick pass? All the guy does is slide the ball through his legs. Injuries are always an easy scapegoat and prevent people from looking at the real problems.

    Worry about yourself.

    Everyone knows that there's not a D-1 team in the country that can run a successful screen pass with their 2nd string center.

    They don't even have the 2's try it in practice because they know it can't be done.

    It was an excuse. He's making excuses while pretending not to make excuses.

    What's the difference between excuses and analysis? Kind of a tough spot to try to explain something when no words will suffice.

    While we're piling on, you and clone dude are by far the worst posters on this site, and it doesn't surprise me at all that you two are leading the charge here. Nobody forces you to come to this site, and most everyone would love it if you would leave. Game was horrible, don't be a deuche and take it out on CW.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Yes, injuries and ejections suck.....but that is why you need depth. I'm not a football expert by any means, but it does not seem to me that ISU has had much of that at some positions the last 6 years, or longer. Most teams have injuries. You have to have the backups to carry on.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    The loss is so bad that we have turned on each other. This is a dark day.

    Let us all take 24 hours to process what has happened and then regroup.

    "While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of—truthfulness,accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability—as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public."

    I'm not saying that Chris is unethical. I'm saying your point is BS. The idea that a journalist has a "product to sell" is disgusting and I would hope, as a journalist, Chris agrees.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Is the OP wrong? No. But Chris being a homer (which he should be a homer. He runs an ISU site) should be the least of our worries.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Fact is, if a center (no matter how good) is the difference between us winning and losing against a FCS team then we are not a good team. As if we didn't already know that.
