    This team has heart

    We are by no means a great team, but we have a lot of very talented players on the field and a lot of heart. If we can get everything put together before its too late we will be a very dangerous team. Biggest game of the season is still on Oct 7th.

    On a side note, all the people that claim to know so much about football and then oversimplify things in order to complain about coaching is driving me nuts. There is so much more going on that most people dont see and then they say things like if only we would throw it up to blythe or we arent aggressive enough at the end of ball games. Sure there are things I would like to see done differently, but to think we have a worthless coaching staff is crazy. Hindsight is always 20/20.

    Great post. That game tonight was a hell of a lot closer than the score indicated. We were a few stupid (one particularly unexcusable) penalties, a few better throws and few plays on defense that should have been made, away from begin right in that game, possible winning it. And all of the things that were mentioned above were the players fault, not the coaches. Like I mentioned in a different thread, the coaches put the players in the exact right position to make a ton of plays today and they simply didn't make them. Having said that, I believe they are capable of making the plays and they will in the future. I think we take a lot of things away from this game and learn from the mistakes. UNI is going to see a completely different football team than they have been watching on tape. I sincerely hope that we (Cyclone FANS) don't give up on this team. There is a lot of season left and a lot of things that can still be accomplished. IMO it is time we all come together and support this team and quit ******** about coaches, the play calling and all the other coulda, woulda, shoulda ********.

    Re: This team has heart

    I completely agree. After the first 16 points were put on the board, I was ready to turn off the TV set in frustration and listen to the rest of the game on the radio while I did other things. The 14 points the team scored after that were much more inspired than going up 14-3 on Iowa the previous week. I really thought ISU was going to hang with Texas until Parker committed that bone-headed penalty.

    I really hope Rashawn gets a "tremendous" booing at the UNI game when, or if he's announced in the starting line-up.

    Re: This team has heart

    I agree with you guys 110%!!!! Don't spot the horn's 16, say we give up only 7 pts. Then we get our offense rolling. Then take away the stupid penalites and the TD catch that should of been picked off or at least knocked down!! It would of been a much closer game! I live with 3 iowa fans and everyonw agreed we played with Texas, but stupid penalites and missed plays just didn't allows us to put up equal points. It sucks we lost but i feel we can play with Nebby and TT, so that means i think we can win the Big 12 North and play Texas/Ou in the Big 12 championship. I also like Mac opening up the playbook a little bit..... I just don't feel as bad as i should losing by 23 points!!!

    I do like the heart of the team. This shaped up early on to be a OU from 2002 all over again. Still got whooped pretty good today...yet we did show signs of life.

    Totally agree with you. They didn't lay down, they kept on getting back up, unlke the '02 club. Lets hope they keep getting up after OU.

    Re: This team has heart

    See my rating on another thread. I feel optimistic. Hope we can get by Missouri. Minor injuries only. We have to get better, but we can. We saw a brave Bret Meyer mix up the plays well. Need the left side of the oline to look themselves in the mirror and get better fast. Need d line to find a way top penetrate.

    Re: This team has heart

    All i wanted out of this game is for ISU to compete, to show that they can stick with a great time, and not get blown out.

    I came away from this game very impressed. The game was ALOT closer than the score indicated.

    I'm one of those coach haters you complain about, but I could never sink to the level of booing one of our own players. He made a mistake, a very bad one. That said, he is working hard for this team and deserves our support. Everyone makes mistakes.

    I was blowing off a bit of steam in that post, so I apologize. I don't really wish it upon any of our players to be booed by their own fans before they've even played the game; especially at home.

    I hope we donít boo our own players anytime; itís counter productive and hurts recruiting. The coaches will convey what is needed.

    Great to see so many 2nd string people play, good for us!

    Understandable to blow off steam...we welcome back your rationality now. :)

    Remember--Parker is young...he doesn't have all of his emotions in check. He'll learn from this and I would just about guarantee we won't see anything like this down the road from him if the coaching staff addresses it. Drive by JTS on Monday...the kid will probably be running the stairs.

    Re: This team has heart

    The HOLE in our WHOLE season is the offensive line. If it played pass blocking better and gave better pass protection in one on one blocking situations, we would pass better an d have fewer false starts and control the ball longer and score more and play less defense and need special teams less and win more especially in the second half. Simple. The senior line needs to do better. Looking at the pros, they remind me of the Houston Texans pass blocking. Very simple.
