    Parker is off to a great start.....

    I was just looking at the game notes for this weekend and Rashawn Parker is 5th in the big 12 for sacks at 3. I really think he is going to have a great season for us and our defense really hasn't played too bad. If our offense get their *** in gear we could surprise some people including me.

    David Sims is leading the big 12 in INT's and Jesse Smith is ranked pretty high in overall tackles.

    Hope Austen comes back strong this weekend, but I have my doubts. Prove me wrong Austen!!!!


    By the way, who is the new in-state football offer? DT-Brandon Jensen from Ankeny? 6-4 260 4.8.....sounds good to me. The more Iowa boys the better!

    Here's to being 2-1 after Saturday with a good chance at 3-1 going into the KSU game.

    Parker has already tripled his sack total from last year.

    I have been impressed with Parker for the past couple of years. He seems to have a drive that keeps going through the whole game.

    Interesting that everyone talks about how horrible the DL is--and yet the starting DE's seem to be doing a decent job.

    He looked real good against Iowa.

    He was a beast against NDSU. Every time I looked, he was in the backfield. I'm very impressed with Rashawn.

    This! It would be nice to see a complete game from the entire team. I can't even remember the last time I saw a dominant performance in all aspects of the game for an entire game. For nearly 3 years now, we either have the offense or the defense show up or they both show up but only for a half, or we have a special teams melt down. We need to get back on track and start playing complete games as a team. I think CPR will have the troops ready to play for this game enough to win, but I'm guessing it'll probably be a year or two before we see everything come together and this team really start come together.

    Also, I agree Parker is playing well so far, although in the past two seasons he seemed to fade away as the season wore on. Maybe that was just me not paying as much attention to him; either way, I hope he can keep his motor running for the whole season the way he has for these first two games.

    Re: Parker is off to a great start.....

    Yes, there are several bright spots on the defense. I feel better about the D as a whole than I thought I would heading into the season. Needless to say, after watching the game Saturday, I'm real worried about Banks though. He doesn't seem to play smart football and I see him being exploited often. Just as EIU figured out......

    Re: Parker is off to a great start.....

    Parker has looked good so far, but Lyle has had his moments too...both are refreshing to see...I have no doubts between, Rhoads, Burnham, and Ash we'll get this D turned around.
