    Do you expect big things from 09 football team this year?

    We have some very talented sophmores that look to be some top players in the big 12...Do you really think that hermans offense is going to be tuff to learn? Or possibly it will be easy do to that fact that he likes to throw the ball. It just seems to me that somthing has dramaticlly changed at the isu football program, Not sure if somthing weird would happen like us having an amazing record and a good bowl..its happen before with coaching changes

    I have to imagine learning a completely new system (offense & defense) will set us back a bit next season. Hopefully, we'll see improvement, but we may still get to only 3-4 wins...

    IF you mean by "Big Things", as forcing a punt now and then, then yes.

    Ding, ding, ding...I think we'll be better than 2-10, but our defense needs to be A LOT better if we want to sniff 6-6 or anything like that...

    My "big things" for 2009....beating the teams that we have clearly better talent than, and not on last second field goals. Playing well, even if we get beat, (in some cases soundly) by the elite. Getting better as the year goes on.

    absolutely not I just hope we beat NDSU, Army and win a conference game, but some people think we will win the north. Pretty reasonable considering how good our defense was last year

    Re: Do you expect big things from 09 football team this year?

    I would like to see our coaches make adjustments and play to the strengths of our team. This is something I don't remember seeing much from Chiz or Mac's coaches.
    On offense, I am excited to see what Herman will do with our athletes. From what I have seen of him with Rice, he tried to utilize every skill that his athletes had. For example, having receivers passing and running with the ball, and having a tight end run if the running back talent is not as desired. He is also smart enough not to do the exact same things at ISU that he did at Rice. It helps when you HC and OC are both very smart people. (Mac, not so much)

    Re: Do you expect big things from 09 football team this year?

    I went back to look at the first year record of our last 8 head coaches. Only twice did the new coach win more games in his first year than the old coach won in his last. Mac was +3 (went from 0 wins to 3) and Majors was +1 (went from 2 wins to 3). Criner and Stapleton were even, Chizik and Bruce were -1, Walden was -3 and Duncan was -5 (went from 8 wins to 3).

    I accounted the time outs with clock management.
