    Bleacher Report : ISU Preview (4-8, 1-7, 6th)

    2009 Big 12 Football Season Previews: Iowa State | Bleacher Report

    A very well written article, with the exception of the bit about losing both of our starting CBs. Other than that, pretty thorough and accurate (I think).

    I am pretty sure the picture at the top of the article is Brett Meyer.

    That article makes me want to move back to Ames and open up a Kool-Ade stand on Lincoln Way! You know you want at least a sip!

    Solid writeup, excluding the gaffe on returning CB and some misspellings.

    Good read and fairly accurate I think. They seem to like the new staff as well.

    4 and 8 sounds do-able, but: "Defensive line should be good if they can avoid injury" where does that come from? I will be very surprised if our DL is good. Also, we do not return the 3 interior offensive linemen. (No returning center - lost to injury.) I think our two returning guards are excellent, but at this point, center has to be a MAJOR concern.

    Bleacher Report is what it is and that is anything short of a credible news outlet. Some guys that like to write about sports threw up a site of collective blogs that anyone can get in on writing at any time while they sit back and collect the revenue and these pseudo-sportswriters/arm chair analysts feel important as if they're actually being "published".

    Re: Bleacher Report : ISU Preview (4-8, 1-7, 6th)

    I thought it was a pretty significant omission about our cornerbacks, which actually do return. Leonard Johnson was a Freshman All-American IIRC. And with Allen Bell, Devon McDowell, Kennard Banks, Terran Benton, etc. there is some pretty decent returning talent.

    It almost seemed like they were running out of space and getting tired and so they just shortened up the article when they got to the cornerbacks. I thought they were right on about our linebackers though. We definitely lacked speed. Burnham is a pretty savvy old coach and I think he will figure out some way to cover up our weaknesses. Plus I like the idea that he attacks. Heck, what do we have to lose? Attack them, create turnovers and maybe win a few games we shouldn't.

    Easy solution, if you don't like what Bleacher Report says simply sign up and write your own column or become an editor yourself and submit a fix.

    Literally, it's nothing more than a glorified blogosphere...a six year old could write for them.

    Exactly. Plus many of the writers (not necessarly ISU ones) plagiarize other blogs. They aren't always very professional.
