    Single most positive about football....

    In one sentence, what was the single most positive aspect of the Iowa State football season.

    In my view, Lenard Johnson on both special teams and defense was a real bright spot.

    To me, it was Austen Arnaud's play throughout the season.

    I think there is more than just that to take away as a positive. I saw a lot of nice stuff being done out there this year. My fear is that the rest of the Defense negates, then throws the rest of the positives away. I'm still trying not to think about it. I can usually say, "There's always next year, but this year all I can think is, "Wow, it could be worse next year." I just don't see how our D improves enough to make a difference. I really hope I am wrong.

    We have a solid kicking and return game for the next three years, Offense will be better....and the defense will be better (could not get worse).

    Re: Single most positive about football....

    is that Phillip Bates looked gre.. wait..

    I'd have to say the positive is that our offense showed signs of being amazing.

    Our D needs LOTS and LOTS of help or we're screwed.

    Tiller never had to burn his redshirt and Grant Mahoney is back for 3 more years.


    Exaggeration is a BILLION times worse than understating.

    Mahoney was definitely a bright spot; I'd also say Arnaud, and LJ. Overall I just see an upgrade in athleticism...but no wins to back it up.
