    Starting secondary next week...

    What's going to look like? I bet McDowell and Bell are kicking themselves right now.

    CB: LJ/Banks
    Safety: O'Connell/Sims
    Nickel: Reeves? Sandvig?

    Benton was a doing a great job in the Nickel, imo. Someone has to step up here.

    Speaking of stepping, props to Mike O'Connell for coming in after Smith's ejection and playing a great game.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Who cares about McDowell and Bell... they aren't Cyclones anymore.

    But yes, their opportunity would be there right now... BIG TIME.

    I'd guess Reeves will get some playing time... along with Zac Sandvig.

    Re: Starting secondary next week...

    One more reason why quitting doesn't pay off. It's just short-sighted, because your chance might be right there around the corner.

    I think you've probably got the starting lineup about right.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Losing Benton SUCKS. He was starting to play great.

    Rhoads made it sound like he was playing with the injury and they basically had to force him to come out, I love that about him too....

    speaking of injuries, anyone know what happened to Lamak? He didn't play in the 2nd half.

    According to Coach, he was puking his guts out. Bad flu, I believe.

    Why would Smith not be starting at safety? Cause he was ejected? That was a weak call to eject him, the two players basically squashed it on their own and were slapping each other on the butt after that.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    NCAA rules say that if you get ejected, you're automatically disqualified for the first half of the following game.

    I think Raven can cover guys if they need him to, and I imagine A&M is going to try to run the ball a lot...

    A&M will pass way more than they run. Their QB leads the B12 in all purpose yardage at about 350 per game. Think Reesing against us...that is what we are up against again.

    Exactly, Johnson threw for about 900 yards on us last season.

    Broken leg for Benton (not sure what area of the leg or how bad), and Smith got blasted by an kNU player after a play had ended and got back up and smacked him and got tossed.

    They ran for 321 yards against Tech yesterday, so I don't think you can totally rule out them running the ball quite a bit...
