    Story on Bates, Arnaud

    Hey,
    I know you guys are hungry for ISU football information, so I figured I'd give you some interesting stuff from Monday's press conference and some more personal interviews from Sunday.
    There's no point writing it if no one knows about it.

    Here is the link:
    Cyclone offense on edge after loss to Iowa

    Here is Bates' main quote, which refers to the third-and-5 play midway through the third quarter:

    ďI didnít get the job done. I hesitated, and I didnít make a play when my team needed me to make a play, and thatís a big thing for me. I go off of making plays, and thatís what I want to do, and [Saturday] it was a big time for me to step up and make a play, and I didnít do it.Ē

    We're in the process of setting up a RSS feed for our football coverage. I read the board when I get a chance (during class), and feel free to email me at luke.plansky@iowastatedaily.com if you have questions, thoughts - anything but spam.

    Usually my coverage is limited by the space in the paper and my time constraints, but I'm also setting up a blog to be able to report on all the smaller topics as well.

    My next story will be on Iowa State's struggles in short-yardage situations.

    Something like why we seem to have a completely different offensive philosophy in short yardage????

    I was thinking a lot about this.

    I would love to see a 3 WR and 4 WR set in the red zone with Bates under center...

    Re: Story on Bates, Arnaud

    The Iowa game was a little bit different, because of their defensive line, but Iowa State doesn't have a Ryan Kock, and the offensive line hasn't gotten the overall push to grind out the third-and-1 or third-and-2.
    Chizik said it was "being addressed as we speak" after I asked him about it during the press conference yesterday.

    OT: Next press conference ask Andrew Logue if it was his choice to use the 1st day in prison face for his rag picture. Whatta tool.
