    I'll tell you this much, it's tough to do anything at all with a starting QB that is injured.

    That seems remarkably contradictory, since we're only going to have the same coach for the next two years.

    Someone tell me, with a young offensive line, this is how many different starting units we've used? And Knapp still isn't back yet?

    Re: Official ISU-Nebraska Post Game Thread

    I am out of town so I can't call it but somebody needs to ask Chizik on Monday what they are trying to accomplish. It is becoming obvious they don't have a gameplan and if they do it is really poor.

    You don't run a slant on 3rd and 15. You just don't do it

    Fire everybody. Yank all the scholarships. Start from scratch. Hell, while we're at it, let's build a whole new stadium. That place has too much bad history.

    You know what? Let's raze the whole university. In fact, let's move it to Texas. Then we can have a better recruiting base.

    Hey, I know. Let's play on the moon! We'd be lighter on our feet!



    Don't look at me like that. It makes as much sense as calling for Chizik to be fired after a year and a half.

    I love Pollard. I love the Chizik hire. I really love McDermott. All 3 were the right hires at the right time.

    That being said, the brutal hard truth is...the 2009 football season is the telling point of Pollard's tenure at Iowa State. Fact.

    Re: Official ISU-Nebraska Post Game Thread

    Well, I'm a diehard ISU fan and want to see them win. I also think that Chizik is a terrible coach. I really want him to prove me wrong. But I think that the results speak for themselves. Even a team like Furman would probably be doing better with a lot less talent. Chizik is not the only first time head coach at a new program... For what he is getting I don't think that it is too much to expect better results.

    Look at what we start; how many sophomores, redshirts, etc? We have a kid we don't want to burn a redshirt on, thus we really only have one quarterback, a defense that is STILL trying to find itself for four quarters (besides Jesse Smith, a lil hometown kid representing there), and playing in what now many, including those at ESPN that LOVE the SEC, the toughest conference in the nation.

    We aren't supposed to be good; we weren't picked, nor did many expect, us to win many games. Iowa we wanted; KU we let slip away. We get those two back and there are the four wins many of us expected; five or six was a dream for a lot of people (at least the realists).

    The Baylor loss sucked, and today felt like a punch in the gut.

    But reading these boards makes it sound like DMac is back at the helm and people want results NOW and want him out NOW.

    Must I remind you that these are 18-22 year olds, and some of the posters on here are judging results on what, 22 months of coaching?

    Get real people; this isn't a sprint, this isn't OK or UT or even BYU. We're trying to build here, trying to get something going.

    Give the guy four recruiting classes. Then we'll talk about real change.

    I agree with both of you, but you guys do realize that by arguing with this dolt the way you are you're just fueling him on? We've learned from the past that arguing with trolls makes them worse, perhaps if we ignore this one he will go away (and I know it's tough, cuz I'd like to lay into this dolt myself, but honestly, he/she just isn't worth my time)...

    Re: Official ISU-Nebraska Post Game Thread

    Third and fifteen...maybe not. And that is only one play; BUT, how many times have you seen a five yard slant turn into twenty, or thirty? Maybe taken to the house? It's not a terrible call.

    Personally, I like those slants on first and second downs; guaranteed yards, easy pitch and catch (as long as the line is blocking) and there are opportunities to take it all the way.

    I think we're seeing the play-calling reflect what really we have known all along: we're young, we can't put in a super-complex playbook, and we don't have five or six guys with 4.4 speed. That combination lends itself to a more-simple playbook, with plays that are eas(ier) to run, with not as much room for mess ups.

    Re: Official ISU-Nebraska Post Game Thread

    I want to add that I think Chizik CAN be a good head coach. I really believe that, but HE HAS TO GET BETTER. Just like he expects players to learn the system and get better, he does as well. Team has only gotten off to one good start this season, they make silly mistakes, and look out of place many times.

    All this goes back to the coaches. Chizik I believe you can do it but you got to get better. You have to open it up. Teach the players and than TRUST them on gamedays

    I'll flat tell ya that this football team played as well as it can...the results speaks for itself...

    U-have to credit Nebraska they are a great football team who is starting to win on the road ...If Chizik and ISU are ever gonna win at least at home, they are gonna have to play better than they did today...Like I said ISU is NOT a GOOD FOOTBALL TEAM RIGHT NOW!!

    Its a bowl game or bust next year as far as I'm concerned...tired of losing in central iowa

    Yes, yes I agree. Trollers love it; it was more of a general take on things, and not just directed at him(her?).

    But your words of wisdom are wise; thanks for the reminder!

    How many times did Austen throw downfield? And how did the long passes look. There's a reason our offense was super conservative.

    Can you name for me a coach at a BCS school who started out 4 - 20 (I'm going to leave out the 1aa schools...) and went on to build a good program?

    Easy Answer. NOT ONE TIME. EVER

    Others team do it. We never take a slant to the house. EVER.

    We did it 3 times today, not just once. And we also ran a 7 yd out on 3rd and 10. WHY?
