    It is time. We are going backwards like Dan did.

    I could go either way on this. Wally definitely isn't getting the job done, which goes for everyone associated with the program.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    All of the ones prior to Knott going down were overall good enough, and would have been better with support from the offense and in a different conference. More importantly it did not feel like they were under-preforming.

    I'll give him until the end of the year to make progress. If I see the same **** today or if we give up 50 to anyone I'm calling for his head.

    Was it that his defenses overall were that good or was it that Knott/Klein covered up a lot of issues that came to the surface when we no longer had someone of their talent?

    It's time to at least consider the notion.

    The second one, especially Knott. Since he went down, we've only won 5 games, with 3 being Kansas.

    We did the earn a Bottom 10 ranking last week. The article noted an inexperienced and weak defense. I had no idea it would true.

    Do you feel that the Bison players would go to ISU just because our program is bigger? I do not. We have a long way to go, to get players to want to come here. It's been an uphill battle for all our coaches, and it just seems to get worse every year.

    NDSU is a top notch program, and players want to play there.

    That is like asking is Hoiberg that good or did getting players like White, Kane, and Georges cover up what we saw in Year 1?
    Most coaches are not good if they have inferior talent and get better with better players. Given Knott, Klein, Georges, Smith etc were not major recruits or even what most programs consider overly talented, and were only one or two players out of 11, I'd say it was Wally. Look at what he did in Year 1 compared to what those guys did under Bolt. The fact that if you give him even a couple good players he can put out a serviceable defense is impressive. I'd like to see this defense in Game 6 with Coe, Irving, Ayeni, Iron, and Cotton-Moya.

    Nonsense.

    There is no football player on planet Earth that is worth a flying **** that would turn down a full ride to a Power 5 conference school over an offer from ANY lower-tier program in America. Iowa has basically built their program on stealing kids from UNI and MAC schools.

    How bad must J Harris be at LB? We were getting gashed and the juco doesn't even see the field and his specialty is run stopping and supposedly knocking your teeth out as CPR put it.

    Both were bad.
