Iowa State is 5-3 and we have yet to see them play their best ball as a whole team. In each game this year we have not had a game where every aspect of the game was playing well and in sync.
Prior to the KU game the offense was having issues gelling with the new system and in the KU game the defense had their worse game. The KSU game we basically didn't have Arob and had kicking issues. Baylor is probably the closest we had to a complete performance from all aspects except that AA and Arob didn't play half the game and our kicking woes continued. NU was easily our best defensive performance but once again AA/Arob absent and those pesky kicking problems.
Its great that we are 5-3 with out playing our best yet but I would like to see what this team can really do with its full realized potential and running on all cylinders. I feel if they can do this we can win out but who knows how good this team can be if we haven't seen it yet. A lot will depend how AA/Arob heal up but I would hate to play the what if game and not being able see this team running on all cylinders.
I know it's overly optimistic but how do we know that? We are 5-3 with the team not playing its best ball yet. I'm saying we don't really know how good this team is yet because we haven't seen them play with everyone healthy for whole game after they figured out the offense and the defense playing at the level they are at now as well.
