    Official "post"-Game Thread - Iowa @ ISU

    Well, Iowa certainly imposed their will all the way to the end. Quite a setback for ISU after last weeks game. The only team ISU beat today were themselves. Greener pastures ahead, I hope. We will get it together! I don't want to see any www.firePaulRhoads.com threads! He will get the job done, just give him and his staff some time, and he will prevail in the not to distant future. We'll police ourselves up, and go back to the drawing board. We will win! We will get better! As ever, Go Cyclones!

    The silver lining is I see a lot of fixable mistakes(penalties, bad decisions) and despite the score our defense held up relatively well, your going give up points constantly starting at midfield.

    Re: Official "post"-Game Thread - Iowa @ ISU

    I'm really not dissapointed. This opened my eyes. I went into this game thinking "New coach, new playbook, new coordinators. Iowa's had this same coach and coordinators for 11 years. Whatever happens, I don't really care". Now we know that Arnaud is going to have to grow into this new coaching staff and the spread offense.

    It's just another game. Goes in the L column. Arnaud needs to pick himself up after this one. we need him the rest of the season.

    Luv my clones - but to those discounting the long-term coaching and system consistency that the hawks bring are nuts.

    We're not even close to being the better "team" today.

    Re: Official "post"-Game Thread - Iowa @ ISU

    I can't imagine us winning this game for several seasons...Iowa is way out in front. We could very well be starting a major losing streak against Iowa. Sucks, but how can you dispute it? Iowa is talented and young.

    Re: Official "post"-Game Thread - Iowa @ ISU

    So much for positive posts. Sorry for the downer to follow but if you dont want to read then go ahead and skip to the next message.
    Here is what I saw
    1. Arnaud continued to look as he did in the first half against NDSU. Over throws, throwing too hard. He is either locking on the receiver or our receivers are horrible at getting open. How many times did he throw and there were 4 or 5 white jerseys around? If we are putting 4 out on routes somebody should be open. Or we are throwing long with the safeties back instead of underneath in between coverage.
    2. Kennard Banks is not the answer. He is continually getting burned, this week and last. I dont know how bad his injury was/is but I hope he gets some solid coaching soon and improves. What I have saw so far is unimpressive.
    3. Either our receivers are extremelly sub par or they are not reading the routes correctly. I dont know how much of the problem was Arnaud or how much the receivers not reading correctly.
    4. I do think our running game will improve. ARob looks pretty damn awesome at times and Arnaud when he runs finds some room to move.
    Extremelly disappointing game from a fundamentals standpoint.
    Once again you feel like Charlie Brown and Lucy has snatched the ball right out from underneath you.

    I'm just glad we don't have to play UNI this year.

    Re: Official "post"-Game Thread - Iowa @ ISU

    Is there any unit that is more overrated by its fans than the ISU receiving corps? Pretty much on an annual basis too. Course the QB was worse today.

    This offense is a lot less imaginative than I was expecting. I think our personnel might be better suited for a run first offense.

    Sure Iowa's line dominated the last couple drives when the game was out of reach....
    But the real story is the turnovers. Arnaud made some very poor decisions with the ball, take those away, and this game was a lot closer.

    There is still a lot of football to be played this season. And only the second game under the belt of our coaching staff. Making predictions about future seasons is quite pre-mature.
