    Pretty much hit the nail on the head there.

    I fully expect this HOT/NOT to be completely different next week.

    I had no idea our running game was so poor. Let's hope it gets better tomorrow.

    It's hard to tell that the tailback situation is bad when the QBs are doing most of the work, and doing it well.

    Re: ESPN's Hot or Not, Big 12 Edition

    Let's keep in mind that Bates had a 10.1 yard per rush average during the kent state game. A rob didn't play, and we all know he is an upgrade from Scales. Although Scales didn't rush particularly well he did contrbute huge in the special teams. So the running back stat is a bit misleading, we will get our yards on the ground, Bates will do just fine as will A-Rob.....
    GO STATE

    Re: ESPN's Hot or Not, Big 12 Edition

    I know we were missing A-Rob, but frankly, I used to think highly of our RB depth. I hope they get better throughout the year, but we can't just rely on A-Rob to be in the game.

    Hard to argue with their points.

    Scales is killing that YPC average when he is under 2 YPC.

    Re: ESPN's Hot or Not, Big 12 Edition

    I think we are a year away from great depth at rb....I am confident that Chizik and Co will figure it out this year though. Weather it is more spread, option or misdirection. I expect the playbook to be wide open tomorrow. I have a good feeling about this game for the first time maybe ever the day before...We are a vastly different team this year than we were last, there is a big play ability this year that i didnt feel we had last year....Not to take anything away from last years team but this is a different animal....

    "Not -- Iowa State tailbacks, who produced only 55 yards on 28 carries, an average of 1.96 yards per carry, last week against Kent State."

    Hope A-Rob is at full strength and Bass is ready.

    Take away Harris's 68 yard run and what do you have, and even worse rushing game.

    Re: ESPN's Hot or Not, Big 12 Edition

    This is what makes our rushing game even more pathetic.

    Link

    Our leading rusher is a QB who splits time with another guy. Tell me how that makes sense!
