    Shining Light this Season

    Two Words: Bret Culbertson.
    Kicking has (in recent years) been a bane to Iowa State. Bret has been great this year, and has really improved since his 2004 debut.

    2004
    PATs 16/16 100%
    FGs 8/10 80% Long - 37yards

    2005
    PATs 32/32 100%
    FGs 12/16 75% Long - 45yards

    2006 thus far
    PATs 20/20 100%
    FGs 7/9 77.8% Long - 52yards

    That's 7 or 8 yards longer per season. Can we see 60 yard FGs next year?

    Bret was an average walk-on, but will leave Iowa State a great football player.

    First, Shaggy has been about our only good thing this season. Loved the 52 yarder also. I'll give him and the coaches that.

    However, his acuracy was virtually the same last year as it was this year. Plus, his accuracy has slipped in '05 and '06 from '04. The big knock on Shaggy in the past was the inability to make the big kick.

    We were never in position this year where a really big kick took place.

    That one he made from 52 would have been good from 60. He's absolutely blasting those kicks. I think he should kick off too.

    Milan Moses and half a season for Stevie were other two highlights and linebackers gobbling up the tackles. That is all.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    Give Culbertson his props

    I was down on Culbertson after Missouri in 04 and KU last year. But like the ESPN Classic "Top 5 Reasons" shows, here are the top two reasons why those weren't Shaggy's fault 2) against MU from the right hash McBarney ran Hicks off left guard the play before. OK in theory but Stevie cut back and didn't pick up the first down. so now Shaggy's 5 yards closer and still on the hash -- an even tougher angle. The obvious play was to have Meyer take the snap, move 3 steps to the left and take a knee. Shaggy essentially has a PAT to win the North, and he never misses PATs. So that one is on Mac and Cotton all the way. Completely boneheaded coaching. 1) how can you blame Shaggy for missing a 38 yarder in OT when the coaching staff had its hands around its neck the entire 4th quarter. With the play not to lose mentality and Mac's nervous pacing, the whole team tightens up -- offense, defense, and yes the kicker. The whole operation is so nervous at that point that you can't blame Shaggy for missing a kick.
