    I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    Jeremy's has asked me to cover Cyclone Media Day for CycloneFanatic this Saturday.

    As a public service, I'm looking to see what you as fans want to know. Leave me your questions in the comments, and I'll try to work them in on Saturday - if appropriate and deemed suitable.

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    1. Got to be the QB situation. Obviously asking who the guy will be right now is pointless, but ask if they will consider running a 2 qb system, and ask if Bates would move to WR, or at least play some there, if he doesn't win the starting job. Ask them to talk about the differences between the two.

    2. Offensive scheme. Bates and AA are both better runners than Meyer, how will that change the offense? Will the offense be opened up a bit more due to the year everyone now has under their belts?

    3. Jason Harris, any chance he moves to safety where he showed so much promise?

    4. Will the kickers split duties? How will the staff try to improve special teams in general? Who is getting looks at returning kicks?

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    I'd like to hear an overall evaluation of the DL and LB corps as well as the receiving corps. Outside of QB that's where we had our biggest losses in terms of personnel.

    Sounds hokey - but I'd like to hear what coach thinks will be the biggest difference in this team versus last year in terms of on field performance.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    Ya gotta have the horses, man - Johnny Orr.

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    I don't really need names (because I doubt Chizik will speak about individual players anyway) but I was just wondering like a lot of people about the progress of the LBers and the DTs. Will those units be taking a step back with the losses of our talented seniors last year? Etc.

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    Who stuck out this summer in the weight room?
    What are some of the interesting nick-names being thrown around recently amongst teammates & coaches?
    Who on the team is the prankster or "class clown?"
    How has the "life skills" position affected the team lately?




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    I would like to know if he plans on redshirting all the freshmen or if some will have a chance to contribute this year.

    Maybe:

    Besides going to the games, what can we do to encourage our team?

    I have met the "life skills" coach and I can guarantee he is a good person to have around these students and our program.

    - What has he learned to love most about Ames and Iowa State since moving here?


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    He spoke at our Church's father/daughter dinner last year. He was really neat and has a passion to help the students!

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    What is the latest on JJ Bass.
    How is recruiting going?
    Will the offense be more downfield this year?
    Will the blitz packages be used earlier in the games?
    How do you really like the new unis?
    Would you rather hear the submarine toot or Sweet Caroline sung?
    Who will now redshirt?
    Who made the most progress from spring?
    Will you throw the ball downfield more this year?

    What is the biggest improvement he would like to see at Iowa State that is not related to players or on field performance?

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    Who should we expect to see returning kicks/punts this year?
    Are you optimistic about our improvement in that area?

    Do you expect to still need to use several starters on Special Teams coverage this year?

    Re: I NEED YOUR HELP! Questions for Media Day

    Name a player that didn't see much action on offense or defense last year that will has the best chance of significant playing time besides special teams this year?

    Special teams coverages units: will there be lots of starters playing special teams this year?
