    We are the Cyclones!!

    What does everybody expect! We are young. We have better athletes on the field than in the years past. Fire Chizik?? Please, this guy has better althletes on the field than we've had in a long time.... He will get this thing turned around. For ***** sake, it's the second year of a new regime. There was and is not much expected of this team this year. We will get there...

    If the athletes are better, why isnt the play getting better?

    I'll try saying this slowly.

    Because...they're....freshmen.

    Sorry, just reminded me of an old Reverand Jim episode from Taxi, where he's taking a driver's license test.

    Ter'ran Benton and Leonard Johnson need a year in the weight room. So do Sed Johnson and Darius Darks. And Jerome Tiller. The list keeps going.

    Guys like Scott Haughton and Hayworth Hcks need not only the weight work, but conditioning, coming in at 360 and 335 respectively.

    As far as the "five yard routes", Jack Whitver (as a former wideout) explained that often youngsters rush the "timer" in their heads in game situations, and cut off a route early. It's something that can only be solved with poise--and experience. That's all I got for ya right now.

    We dont need your "sense" on this board! There are plenty of DB's that do just fine without it!

    Re: We are the Cyclones!!

    I'll go further, and do some comparing between Chizik and McCarney. For those who are complaining about "Why isn't GC winning yet?" Do you realize where McCarney was in season 2 of his tenure?

    And that it took nearly 10 years for McCarney have any real "success"? Most of which could be attributed to a single Offensive Coordinator, who, once he left, resulted in ISU being worse?

    I was thinking the same thing....you beat me to it.

    One point I'd like to make is that EVERYONE has better athletes than in the past. Given the money pumped into high school programs, nutrition, off-season workouts and national recruiting it's obvious that everyone has progressed physically. Everyone is bigger, stronger, and faster. A true test is to compare a program to those in like markets, regions, and/or conferences over a certain time span. I am not ripping you. I am just bringing another angle into your discusion.
