    Hurry Up

    Anyone else think that the offense could possibly benefit from going to a bit of a no huddle offense? Do the coaches have such little faith in the defense that they think we need to break the huddle with 8 seconds on the play clock so that we keep them off the field longer? Why are we not just trying to use our strengths to neutralize our weaknesses instead of comprimising our strenths to lessen our weaknesses? I think that we look good when we have gone no huddle, maybe I'm wrong here.

    Re: Hurry Up

    My friend and I had this conversation after the UNI game. Iowa State has looked the best this season at two points: (1) on their first drive of the game and (2) when the situation is desperate. Whether it was overtime against Toledo, down early against Texas, or running the two-minute drill to come back against Northern Iowa, this team has looked best when they are absolutely against a wall.

    I agree completely, the offense has looked at its best by far during no-huddle situations. Going no-huddle over certain drives in the game could keep the opposing defense on its toes and give our team the sense of urgency it thrives on.

    Re: Hurry Up

    On the call-in show last week a caller asked Mac about going completely no-huddle , and Mac just sort of laughed it off, as if it was out of the question.

    Yeah, I mean, why think out of the box, Mac? Why don't we just keep doing what we're doing and keep getting our heads beat in?

    Try it in Norman. You cannot change plays that well on the road and they are deep on defense. Make it tough for them to substitute. We know we cannot run the ball even if we owned a bulldozer.

    Well, it's foolish to go 100% no-huddle. However, we should be doing some of this. Open the game that way - hell - then the coaches can ****** the plays.

    I thought we'd see this against Nebraska, from the info I had. Yet, we didn't until garbage time.

    Re: Hurry Up

    Have we run the hurry up offense yet in a situation where it was meaningful. The reason it has been successful is because the other team is in a prevent defense letting us run the clock out...and not a prevent defense while up 3 in the 3rd quarter.

    Re: Hurry Up

    I don't think we should go hurry up no huddle but I think we would benefit greatly by not huddling up. We have absolutely no sense of urgency or no rythme because we walk to the huddle, call a play and then walk to the line of scrimmage. After the play we should get to the line and let the play come in and let Bret call the play at the line of scrimmage. Everyone can start looking over the defense and start thinking about there assignment on the next play. This could take 20 seconds off the play clock but it would just keep us in a better rythme and give us more focus IMO.

    That's certainly not what UNI was doing defensively against us. They were playing aggressive defense in that last drive of ours.
