    Beats me man...but I'll help you keep the thread alive to find out. It almost seemed like we played our second string to win the game...I think we had just 1 catch for Darks. Seems like something is not being shown yet.

    I think its bad that two of our best wide outs virtually have made no impact

    I wouldn't think so... but I have also been surprised by the lack of production from our WR's. I think a lot of it has been from a lack of production from our QB's so far. I think Arnaud and Tiller are having difficulty with the new offense. This should get better as the season progresses.

    I will agree with this. Arnaud has been making some questionable throws and staring down receivers. But Hamilton has been making some great catches...so...I don't know.

    I look at it as a positive, somewhat. We're 2-1 and two players that we were counting on pretty heavily have yet to show themselves.

    If those two come around, we could be on to something.

    I'm not ready to throw Reynolds in the Bo Williams category, yet. He's just getting his feet wet at this level and our staff saw him worthy to put on the field, so he's got a leg up on Bo.

    Keep in mind, in 1 of our 3 games this year, it wouldn't have mattered if we had Jerry Rice, TO and Randy Moss at receiver. They still wouldn't have had any more catches than our real receivers did.

    Re: Money?

    Even from watching the videos posted from Rice's bowl game I think we can safely assume we are keep some of the better plays under wraps until we get to games that count.

    Re: Money?

    There are definitely some issues with the passing game. Maybe the wr's aren't running sharp routes, qb is confused and can't make his reads fast enough, etc.... Who knows at this point. We definitely need to improve. As for our line play it has been vastly improved. There were some holes out there last night you could have driven a DART bus through. Maybe that is a bad analogy as a DART bus would definitely have had to run someone over. A CYRIDE bus then. The holes were huge and ARob was running wild. I can't remember the last time I saw ISU breaking off 20 yard runs at such a high rate against anyone.

    If Arnoood and Darius Parks can get things figured out I think the ground game will for once put us in a position to not have to always throw the ball. Last year we couldn't run the ball and it forced us to have to throw. If we can mix it up we can be effective against just about any team.
