    D Line

    I cannot get over our D-Line right now. It appeared that there weren't a whole lot of guys rotating in and out either, and the guys that are a bit heavier haven't really played a whole lot. I really only saw the starters plus Maggit, and Rump get into the game.

    Who else played on Thursday? D-Line is not only a huge concern IMO but it's also an area where you need some depth. We don't appear to be great at this position and we don't appear to have a lot of young talent ready to hit the field. I'm not going to lie, I expected Liang, Maggit, Rumplehamer, and I dunno, somebody like Black or Johnson getting in the mix. We only have four d lineman over 270 and Frere and Rump are the only ones that really play. Hopefully we can redshirt Woods.

    Is there anybody out there that can talk me down from the ledge on this one? I honestly just don't know how this team can have continued success this year without huge improvement in this phase of the game.

    Re: D Line

    I wish I could talk you down but DL and LB have been a head scratcher for me in terms of recruiting for this team. We have landed some outstanding O-lineman and built what I consider the deepest line in over a decade but I am concerned for next year's defense. We lose all 3 starting LB's, 3 D-lineman and Ja. Smith in the secondary. As I look up and down Rivals/Scout to see who we are recruiting, there are almost no offers out to the positions we desperately need. I expect 6-8 Juco players on D

    The lack of rotation on Thursday was a head scratcher to me too. I certainly hope that changes this week because I really felt there was going to be some depth on the D-Line. Granted, not great depth as the line itself is not great but enough to keep guys fresh.

    Maybe the defense was keeping the playbook slightly closed as well...

    Re: D Line

    What happened to Bailey Johnson? I know last year he was injured and didn't play but I remember him turning a bunch of heads 2 years ago and was someone I was under the impression we'd be building our line around.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Re: D Line

    I'll try to talk you back, we gave up one long pass and two long runs, our lbs Smith Garrin and Raven made 30 tackles, we got 4 sacks and coach thinks we played pretty well on d per the call in show last night.

    I agree the lack of substitution at d line makes me wonder what magical mystery tour we are on.

    Maybe they're planning on playing a lot of nickel and dime formations next year?

    check the rushing yards allowed and get back to me on how much 4 sacks counts.

    Until I saw the UNI game on Saturday I was sure the Dline would cost us the game this week. After watching the rushing game on saturday, I think NDSU might have had a better O-line/RB combo than we are going to see this week.

    Re: D Line

    Our line looked like crap, but Iowa's running backs aren't going to exploit it much. I'm more worried about not getting any pressure on Stanzi. I think Wally is going to have draw up some nice blitzes, like the one where Terran Benton got the sack. We need to blitz to get pressure, but I think that could be ok, because I think we can sacrifice a backer to do that. Our dbacks should match up well against the Hawk receivers.

    This is a big concern... I think the game Saturday will turn into a shoot out. Especially if we can't get pressure on Stanzi.
