This early August Story sounds very familiar today
The Cyclones are coming off a 7-5 season, fueled by quarterback Bret Meyer, who threw for 2,876 yards in 2005. Todd Blythe accounted for 1,000 of those yards and scored nine times, and he remains Meyer’s favorite target. ISU will likely start five seniors up front, but there’s no running game to speak of. They finished 96th nationally in rushing last year, so the Cyclones will have to come up with something special to get past Oklahoma’s secondary and stonewall what promises to be an all-day blitz. The offseason was not kind to Dan McCarney’s squad. He had to oust co-leader in tackles Matt Robertson over the summer, after the middle linebacker tested positive for an NCAA-banned substance. Three other players were also suspended during the offseason for team conduct violations. The defense will likely be patchwork, trying to make up for the loss of 13 letterwinners. The Sooners should have their way with the visitors, as Paul Thompson and company rack up major yardage.
