    What has happened to the ISU KO returns?

    Early in the year it seemed like Sim and Johnson were getting great returns and it was only a matter of time before they broke one all the way. Against Kansas, Baylor and NU the return team seemed very average. Is it just that these teams are much better at covering?

    Couple of things.

    One, we ran in to better competition.

    Two, a lot of directional kicking. Usually a great way to play contain on a kick return.

    Sims took one out to the 50 against Nebraska but got called back for a block in the back.

    Re: What has happened to the ISU KO returns?

    We are no longer playing the Bison, Army, and Kent St. That is the main reason

    Second is because of the way kickers are now kicking off. KO returns seems to be downed in all of college football
