    Spring game expectations?

    I was hoping that all you members out there can help me out. I was hoping that you all could tell me what your expectations are for the spring game this year. Are there things you are most excited about, least excited about? Are there things you expect to see, hope not to see? Anything?

    I thought I would try and use some of your thoughts in a project I am doing.

    Thanks in advance.

    I guess I would like to see a disciplined style with solid execution. I'm excited about seeing what Chizik's fingerprint will look like on the program. Also looking forward to seeing how the O-line looks and if there's a noticeable difference in the returning players' physiques after a grueling off-season weight program.

    That is true. The only new recruits that you will see play are the 4 Juco OL that signed before this current semester.

    The four are Alvarez, Dedrick, McMahon, and Blaes

    Re: Spring game expectations?

    In addition to OL and DL run play, I want to see if they can generate any pressure on the QB.

    Re: Spring game expectations?

    I think OL and DL play are very tough to judge in a scrimmage. Does the DL look really good, or is the OL just blowing easy blocks? Is the OL awesome, or can our front 4 just not get any pressure on the QB?

    Re: Spring game expectations?

    I'll miss the game, but I'm anxious to hear someone recap how our defense is adjusting to the Tampa 2, and what the offensive playcalling and scheme looks like.

    Re: Spring game expectations?

    Question - will this game be broadcasted?

    If my memory severs me right, I dont think any game has been broadcasted. So if you cant make it, then your out of luck.

    Fox sports had kind of an ISU recap show on last year where they showed part of the spring game. They do it for all big 12 schools.
