    Can ISU Get 6 Wins in 2009?

    Right now the product on the field isn't very good. What surprises me, with Chizek being a d-coordinator, I thought ISU's defense might be the better side of the ball during his first 3-4 years.

    However, 9 games into year 2- I like the long term potential for our offense based on the players:

    QB- Arnaud, Tiller
    RB- Robinson, Williams
    WR- Darks, Johnson
    TE- Franklin, Catlett & Bykowski

    It would seem to me that from a skill position standpoint we could use some quickness in the spread offense. We seem to have already recruited that at RB with Blankenship and White. At WR Beshears seems to fit the bill, but I'd like to see us go after a quick JUCO receiver.

    The defense has me concerned. Our front seven just isn't getting the job done. If we are going to be competitive next year, GC might have to dip into the JUCO ranks. We already have committments from a JUCO DE (Martin) & S (Butler)- but it seems we could use 3-4 more JUCO recruits on the defensive side of the ball at weakside DE (pass rusher), DT (maybe 2), MLB and OLB.

    I don't see that approach as being short sighted- but as the only way we can develop stiff competition in positions where we seem thin or not getting the job done.

    I thought we could get 5 wins this season. I was way off, I'm not making any predictions for next season.

    Well, since this is the basketball forum, I certainly hope so.

    Re: Can ISU Get 6 Wins in 2009?

    I hope so. I thought the plan when we got a new coach was:

    2007: take your lumps with OU and Texas
    2008: see some improvement
    2009: get to a bowl game to build some momentum before OU and Texas get back on the schedule


    We need to see more in 2009 than we have this year.

    I don't think so. We're so far away defensively. The offense will be OK next year but our defense is a disaster.

    I don't think it was necessarily the plan, but it's certainly what is happening.

    Re: Can ISU Get 6 Wins in 2009?

    I thought we would win 7 or 8 next year, but now I'm thinking more 4 to 5. Maybe. Look at Colorado. They took a step back Hawkin's third year.

    I was going to say "can people finally learn how to spell the coach's name in 2009" but your answer works too.

    I don't know if OU can beat us any worse than OSU. I'm sure they'll try, but I'm not sure it's possible.

    In 5 years when Chizik is still here, we're going to have some fans still spelling his name "Chizek" just like there are still Iowa fans that think Ferentz's last name is pronounced "Fur-ENTZ."
