    No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    Last TD against Iowa was a Meyer run in the closing minutes of the second quarter in 06....

    That's 10 straight quarters with no TD's. Sickening

    Meh...we were able to win one of those games.

    Bring it up again when Iowa is the next team on our schedule.

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    I think that's a misleading statistic. We still won last year, didn't we? Did what we needed to do to win. Unfortunately this year, we didn't.

    I'd be much more worried if we hadn't scored a touchdown in the last 10 consecutive quarters against all of our opponents rather than just one opponent spread over the last three years.

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    Who are we playing this week???? I thought the Rebels

    Sad we haven't scored in that long, but hey, new week and a new opponent. Not really concerned about this until next year now. Unless Norm Parker is defensive coach of UNLV and KU and so on and so on.


    Bellzisu is aka Chris Bellcock. Just so I'm not anonymous anymore.

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    This offense needs a deep threat or big play option. We're going to stall out on way too many drives if it continues to take us 3 plays to go exactly 10 yards every time. We won't be able to complete 15 play, 70 yard drives very consistently.

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    Thats it. I want to go into the wonderful field of stat keeping. Its amazing what people keep track of. What was the average length of grass on the field in the last 5 meetings with Iowa. I need to know.

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    Whether a lot of you want to blow it off or not, it is a relevant stat. Especially in the 4 quarters we couldn't score one this past weekend. That said, I would rather put it behind us for now and focus on UNLV.

    I don't think I'd call it relevant - aside from, as you mentioned, the most recent 4. The preceeding 6 are ancient history and aren't relevant to anything except to annoy us in our rivaly.

    FWIW - this season, we've scored 9 TDs in our last 10 quarters.

    I could not disagree more. If the stat was that the 'Clones haven't scored a TD in the last 10 quarters this season, then you'd be on to something.

    The Cyclones have scored plenty this season with the lone exception of 1 game.

    Sure it's relevant. Of course it would be better if we could score touchdowns, but we're looking at a stat against one opponent over the last three years. Back in the days when we only cared about beating that one opponent, it might have been more significant. We had a bad game against Iowa this year, no doubt. But it's time to move on and figure out what we're going to do about our next opponent.

    Here's another statistic: After three games last year, we had three touchdowns and were 1-2. This year, we have 11 touchdowns and are 2-1. While the Iowa game was a step back, overall this year we've taken many more steps forward.

    I would say that about half of that stat is relevant. We scored no TD's against a BCS opponent and had the ball in the 30 like 6 times.

    And that 1 game has been a third of our season. We should never go 4 straight quarters without a TD. The only time I might let that slide is against a top 5 team.

    Let's keep a little perspective. I'm upset as anyone we had 3 trips to the red-zone and scored zilch.

    But it was our first road game of the year - in an extremely "unfriendly" environment.

    Many of our skill players are very young with minimal starting experience - if not very little outright college experience. As is a large part of our battery on special teams.

    The field conditions were terrible for offense.

    We should note that our oppenent only managed a single drive that resulted in 6 pts as well.

    We should stay positive.

    We're 1 of only 66 teams from a BCS conference still playing for a bowl game...

    Re: No TD's in 10 Quarters.....

    Wow - one loss - and a loss that most sane fans expected (to some degree anyway), and people are already panicking and trying to spread their fears by bringing up meaningless statistics to rationalize their fears. So we haven't scored a TD against Iowa in 10 quarters. Big deal - it doesn't mean anything until September '09.

    Guess what? We lost - get over it. It's time to focus on this weekend and UNLV.

    Yup! Sucks losing to rivals that we have to hear from all year round, but until one of the ISU engineers figures out the finer points of the flux capacitor, theres no do overs. So lets worry about the team giving UNLV their best.
