    ARob

    Has been impressive this year to this point. This scheme fits him well. I wasnt sure about his abality coming into the season and I take back all the worries I had about him. He is becoming a good RB.

    Re: ARob

    A-Rob has always been impressive. But for me the problem right now is that some of the runs might be too predictable and there aren't always holes to run in.

    Re: ARob

    better O line (should) = more runs.

    If AA struggles at times, why not pound the rock? With both guys..

    Re: ARob

    Right now, are running game is all we got. We need it humming to open up the pass. Iowa threw it in our face that we couldnt run and left the safeties playing watch the quarterback eyes. It kinda worked for them. ARob can make things happen and AA is running the draw or whatever it is he runs pretty well right now too.

    Re: ARob

    I think Iowa was prepared to play the pass all day. That opened up the run. That is also a benefid of spreading out the offense.

    Re: ARob

    He needs the ball out of the backfield more. He only has three catches through two games. If you don't want to run the ball more, fine, but then get him the ball other ways.

    Re: ARob

    I am impressed with his ability to get an extra yard or two after contact this year. It seemed like in previous years he would go down right away. It has seemed like he sneaks a few more out on just about every run. Great job out of A Rob so far this year.

    Re: ARob

    Arob was the best player on the field yesterday for ISU....I was very impressed with his ability to make guys miss....Iowa is typically a great tackling team, and Arob broke a lot of tackles.

    ISU has a good one in Arob.

    Re: ARob

    We need more A-Rob and AA on the ground. Pure and simple. I thought we had the guys to run pass in order to set up the run, but it seems like it might be the other way, which is fine. We just need to take advantage of it.
