    Why does he have a 10 yard cushion with corners and d backs? We give up 7 yard curls every game. What did ndsu average? 7.1 per play? That is unacceptable. I'm not a huge donor, but give plenty and am excited for the SEZ and will probably get tix there, but this really makes me reconsider where I spend my money. Love the Clones, alum, and have been a fan for 38 years, just venting, but would really like to move on and win some games.

    This year might make him think hard about retiring. I don't think it is Wally so much as the wrong players for his system and said players knowing their assignments.

    Special teams went well.

    Given our offense, it must be hard to get the young guys ready for what they will see on Saturdays.

    Most of that 1st quarter I was wondering when NDSU was going to break one though. We were bringing a lot of guys on nearly every play. As Wally said all summer long, this defense was going to have to take a lot of chances, so there might be some big plays for us, but there might be some big plays for them too.

    I was concerned that whole 1st quarter though that if one of their RB's broke through the line of scrimmage they might be gone. Turned out, that was pretty much right.

    And eventually they just started wearing us down. Our offense was pathetic too, and that only gassed the defense even more. It was a bad cycle.

    Retire? Maybe, but how many staff shakeups can Rhoads survive before JP decides that he's the problem?

    Rhoads is done surviving. He is on his way out and that much is clear.

    I blame Rhoads as much or more than Wally. Rhoads is supposed to be a great defensive coach.

    Both deserve equal blame and a lot of it.

    [QUOTE=ISUFan22;4154735]Stop. Everyone knew the defense would be bad this year. Young and inexperienced.

    The offense was supposed to be better. It is not.[/QUOTE

    How is it we are and have always been young? Recruit 20 receivers and 2 DLs might be part of the problem here.

    Re: Is it time for Wally to retire?

    We live in a world of instant gratification and JP knows this too. You can't have two seasons in a row like this and survive. Last year was the youngest team he has fielded. If our Oline and offense can't function when farniok goes out what are they going to do next year when Farniok isn't even here?

    I noticed earlier that we have 30 OL, probably 20 WR and we have 6 DT/NGs. I know it is suppose to be hard to get good DTs, but I would take the guys from NDSU, and would have been glad to come to ISU.

    That's what happens when you have a young defense, we lost people from our D.

    Is it time to blame the Head Coach?
