    You have to love this quote...

    McFarland in the DSM Rag article:Iowa State football: Offensive line, quarterback not set | DesMoinesRegister.com | The Des Moines Register

    "We really have no starters," McFarland said. "I let them know that right from the beginning.

    "Our play (last season) was not acceptable. It's not what's going to win for us. We played probably like a 3-9 offensive line, and that's why we got what we got."

    I love the attitude. None of the... "we were a young team"... "year in transition"... "great bunch of kids"... blah, blah, blah.

    Simple message: a) you earn your position... period. b) we don't accept average... no excuses, c) you record is a result of how you play... no excuses.

    Wait wait wait... Doesn't he know you can't put it on the players? We lost 9 games last year because we played 9 tremendous teams! It wasn't our fault!

    That is great! I am tired of excuses... That is all we heard in the McCarney era.

    Great quotes. Definitely refreshing as compared to what we had been used to for 12 years.

    Re: You have to love this quote...

    The first few games really frustrated me but I enjoyed the Big 12 season last year (except for a couple of blowouts). It was nice to see this team improve and come on at the end of the season instead of **** it down their leg like we were used to.

    It was exciting to see the steps taken in the Big XII season. I appreciate the attitude this staff shows. Excellence really is not an option.

    I think that, 3 years from now, I won't have to have that recurring spelling lesson we had this year. Seemed like every 2 minutes, they were scoring, and their cheerleaders were running those flags right in front of my section. I kept saying to my poor wife, "Look, honey, another spelling lesson." I think those days are coming to a close


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I read those quotes in the coach speak handbook. They were right next to "Everyone need's to earn there position" and "we have a lot of work to do".

    Are we making more strides in football than in basketball?

    I think this may turn out to be one of the best coaching staffs in ISU history. I just hope they can get the players they need and that they will buy into their system. I am pumped for this season.
