    Amazing Defensive Stat...

    I just noticed this stat:

    Even though we have a young and inexperienced defense we are holding opposing qb's to a 26.41 incompletion percentage. That means that more 1/4 of the opposing qb's passes do not reach the intended receiver. Though, this maybe because Big XII qb talent is down this year do to all the new starters.

    I look for Iowa State to improve on their stingy pass d this weekend against the Kansas 4th string qb. I predict at least 35% of his passes will go uncaught!!!

    Re: Amazing Defensive Stat...

    Do you think a 73.59% completion percentage is bad?? This is why we're making opposing QB's look like world-beaters every time they play us...

    Yes we rock. Every 100 passes they only complete 75 of them.

    Re: Amazing Defensive Stat...

    An even better stat is that we are stopping the opposing team from scoring touchdowns 26% of the time when they're in the redzone, and 11% from scoring at all.

    I think we just found a new definition for the word "stingy." Somebody alert Webster's.

    Re: Amazing Defensive Stat...

    I think we have an excellent chance of winning the next 3 games because we already have a 3 game winning streak earlier in the season, so I think we are due for another.

    (I guess the sarcasm was lost on some people-just trying to take an obscure stat and spin it in a positive light.)

    Re: Amazing Defensive Stat...

    the bottom line is ISU is stopping no one. I have to laugh when someone says something about ISU have two of the top tacklers in the country. Wow, what a great stat that is. The fact that the defense never stops anyone give Bowen lots of oppertunities to make tackles.

    Re: Amazing Defensive Stat...

    When the opposition is running a lot of plays, there are lots of opportunities for getting tackles. Having two of the nation's leading tacklers means that our defense is spending waaaaaaaay too much time on the field.

    On track for a new national record of the dubious kind with more than 400 passes thrown at in a season and higest completion rate by the opponent.

    That is better than the opponents do in practice.

    The point is that if Bowen and McKenzie and probably were not in the lineup, we would be giving up more than 50 points routinely a game, just like back in the nineties under McC. Be thankful the lbs are leading the country. It could be much worse.

    In Lincolnville their 6 stud linebackers and are now about 2.5 linebackers deep who are too slow to chase down the South runners. AP would have gone for over 300 yards against Nebraska. Their 2.5 decent linebackers wear out at the end of the game. Octavian is always hurt. Phillip Dillard isn't doing much. Boy Ruud has not improved and is too slow. And their big complaint is Cory McKueon is not big enough at 230 to play middle linebacker the full game. I say Redville, come over and watch sophomore McKenzie and Al Bowen and junior Jon Banks gut it out for many more plays the full game. It is just too bad that the only physical secondary member DeMarcus was lost for the year. The best secondaries are the ones who tackle hard and drive forward. Many have speed, few can tackle decisively.

    You would have gotten it if he would have thrown in a "no question about it" or two.
