    One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    Say what you want about the outcome...but AA has to be given the reigns.

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    I agree.

    Though I still think PB is a fine player, and a good QB. He'd easily start at Iowa.

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    Yup, I think that was "known" a week or two aga - but solidified tonight.

    But I did like the changing of QBs during one of the scoring drives. Worked quite well. But Arnaud is clearly the quarterback.

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    It's time for Chizik to give up on the idea of Bates as a QB only. I wonder how Bates will do as a punt returner.

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    Bates will probably still get some snaps maybe once a game but AA is the man. It's about time.

    It looked like AA asked out after laying out for that pass attempt. Not sure that was a coaches decision, looked like he got dinged up?

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    The only thing I'm not a HUGE fan of is how hard Arnaud delivers every ball. Not that it's a horribly bad thing to get it in there, but I'd like to see a bit more touch on his deep balls (so to speak).

    Right, I made a similar point in the other thread. Sometimes when I watch him - he's trying to guide the thing in there rather than just making the throw.

    He certainly did one helluva job running the team/offense in the 2nd half - notably on that final drive.

    98 yards in about 90 seconds with zero timeouts? Wow.

    And that long run - fantastic.

    Too bad Bates does not realize how valuable he could be to this team as a safety.

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    I was thinking this myself. PB is a great player for us and I hope they work him into the game plan but AA stepped up. I'd say give him more of the snaps against KU at a minimum


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!

    Re: One thing for sure, this is Arnaud's team

    I felt good about AA after Kent St, and the same way after Iowa. After tonight, I think our musical quarterbacks act is over.
