Trailing by two scores with 5 minutes or so to play and we boot away the ball! Haven't stopped 'em all day, but we PUNT! What a bunch of quiters! That was the defining moment for me. JP, why should I continue to drive 3 hours one way, freeze my butt off, and yell till I'm hoarse only to watch your lame coaching staff give up? ISU deserves better. You said you wouldn't tolerate mediocrity. Neither will I or the three other first-time season ticket holders who travel with me from the Quad Cities.
Actually our punt team was better offense than our offense was as we recovered 2 of those punts. And if you want to ***** about the weather, it's late October and it was about 40 degrees. We've had great weather for home games this year. If you don't like the cold and want to ***** about every thing negative you can think about when we lose then stay at home. I'm just as frustrated as the next fan but guess what, I'm not canceling my road trip to KSU next week and I'm going to the Mizzou game at the end of the season (have a conflict for the KU game) and I'll probably renew my season tickets next year regardless. If anything you can still have a fun time tailgating even if we play like crap.
This is by no means saying I can tolerate what I am seeing on the field right now but I won't let it ruin my gameday expirience and I definately won't act like the world is coming to an end like several others are here.
It all points to a less than productive offensive line. Meyer was sacked repeatedly, the running game was non-exsistent again, maybe it's time to start playing some younger lineman who can actually move their feet.
