    Positives of the 2006 season

    A friend and I were talking about positives of this season. I thought about it a lot. I did come up with a few.

    Milan Moses.

    The guy has stepped up big. He has been our top receiver the past several weeks.

    Possibly Alvin Bowen...although he makes most of his tackles 8 yards down field but at least he tackles. He still needs to work on his missed tackles.

    I honestly can't think of any more. Not 1.

    Mark my words, you've now jinxed Milan Moses and Alvin Bowen.

    I will say a prayer for them on my way to Colorado tomorrow night.

    We will have a lot of defensive backs returning next year that have experience. As soon as they recover from their various burns, they should be good to go. Oh, and we will have an entirely different O-line.

    No positive, only doom and gloom. Can't you see we're having a pitty-party 'round here until basketball offically starts?

    If our backups can't compete for starting spots because of a huge talent "gap"...then we are in for a long, long 2007.

    Maybe we can make it legal for the receiver in motion to move forward before the snap a la arena football. Therefore, that guy could at least get 3 yards downfield before Meyer gets hit...

    Re: Positives of the 2006 season

    We found out it was possible to get 55,000 people in our stadium after almost losing to a horrible UNLV team and a 1AA UNI team. Pollard deserves alot of credit for this, and it shows that we have the resources to do this every Saturday, if a team that is able to at least compete with their opponet each Saturday is put on the field.

    The most positive positive:

    After this year, no more Stevie Hicks.

    No way. Hicks reminds me of Dante Hall: he cuts waaaaaay too much and can't break a tackle/goes down on contact. Unfortunately, he doesn't have Dante's one upside, his speed.

    Re: Positives of the 2006 season

    stevie was having a good season if we would of gone with running game more Meyer taking -30 to -60 per game we would of wound up with atleast more first downs and points. was best when we could mixup hicks and scales.

    Agreed. I just looked looked up the stats: Hicks had 7 broken tackles in 4 years at ISU...wow. Kidding, but really, he is WEAK and gets knocked down way too easy.

    2 Positives after this season---> no more Spin DMC (hopefully) and no more Hicks
