    Tiller Article from SA

    I am not sure I like how a few of his quotes came across but I am hoping they only used excerpts to make the story more dramatic. I hope he is happier with the current coaches compared to the way he felt about last year.

    JT is going to get some snaps next year. It's frustrating to me how you have to tiptoe around QBs or they transfer. Be a backup, push the starter, get a series here and there and put in your time. He can still be the man as a JR and SR.

    This is an interesting article. Perhaps a summer of throwing will greatly improve his passing skills. This sounds like we have a winner for the future.

    Re: Tiller Article from SA

    Nice read. Had no idea his mechanics were poor.

    Come to think of it, I've never heard an ISU football coach talk about something as basic as that. Refreshing to see that kind of thinking at work in the background.

    Anyone else think that Chizik promised playing time for Tiller with no intention of following through? I hope that doesn't come back to Chiz us here.

    Re: Tiller Article from SA

    The quotes seem pretty selective. I have no doubt this staff has illustrated to him how he can be the man for at least two years after Arnaud leaves.

    I almost wonder that if Bates had stayed maybe we would have lost Tiller...

    I think it was a sure bet ISU was going to lose one of them.

    Not that I'm a huge football expert, but I thought Tiller looked better this year than what Bates did last year in the spring game. But then again, it was just spring games.

    I think this is a growing problem in collegiate athletics in general. I can't believe how many athletes feel like they have to play their freshman year or they will transfer.

    I like Tiller, but is he talking about last years coaches or just Iowa State football when he said
    “I don't think (sitting out) helped me. I didn't learn anything.”

    I would think last year's staff because he's a red shirt. Speaks volumes about how good the coaching staff was last year, however.

    I agree. If you look past the poor writing, the article is okay.
