    Unhappy No catches for Blythe?

    I've been out all day and could only catch the game on radio periodically. I heard third & eight for KSU, deep in their territory leading 17-10. I lost reception and when I picked it back up ten minutes later, ISU was down 31-10 and KSU had the ball. Wow...

    Anyway, I just read the box score on ESPN and Todd Blythe does not appear in the "receptions" category. I don't care what gimmick defense the opposition is employing; you find a way to get the ball into the hands of your playmaker! Heck, I don't even know if K State used a gimmick defense!

    Anybody have any idea how Blythe got shut-out? Why hasn't he been getting any balls; is it the playcalling or Meyer? I'm just blown away...

    Re: No catches for Blythe?

    I think giving him the flu is the best gimmick defense I've ever heard of. Bastards!

    A flu?

    He was on the sidelines in sweats and participated in pregame warmups. You would think he could go...

    If he's got the flu, so do I. Watching this team has made me want to puke all season. My guess is that he's been watching film of the offense.

    It's not the flu, Blythe has mono, I'd be surprised if he can go next week.

    He didn't play and yet he only had two less catches than last week.

    Called in sick because he wanted to. Ateast Bret did not have migraines.

    germ warfare. Right now it's about the only way we could win. Give the entire opposing team the stomach flu.
