    Yep. Then NDSU realized it was the same old, CPR- compressed field and they could play down-hill. Our points/possession is not going to be good.

    No, we are young and started missing assignments because of that.

    I believe in what Mangio will do, I have a feeling we see improvement for KSU.

    Reason for optimism #2. With the offense like this we may be able to keep manginos longer before they jump ship to a different coaching job.

    We are not young on offense.

    If it requires multi-year starters and All-Big 12 talent across the board to get past the horrible level against ******* NDSU, then we are not running the correct offense. When you miss assignments for over 5 years and multiple players, many of which have been physically competent, you are running the wrong offense. I miss the days when getting beat on the oline was because we had dlinemen convert 3 weeks prior in camp or we simply got overwhelmed by top Dlines.

    Re: possible optimism?

    idk, maybe i'm just high, but i think we will be a hell of a lot better by the end of the season, it will be night and day.

    side note: Did anyone get a little giddy, when they actually lined up under center? I was. nice and refreshing.

    Our kicker was good.

    Running game was dismal.

    Re: possible optimism?

    ISU will get better

    The opponents will get tougher

    The opponents will get tougher at a faster rate than ISU gets better

    Wait, wat? Guess I can't find much optimism. Sorry.
