    Griffin: ISU's gritty defense paves way to bowl eligibility

    Have not seen this posted anywhere yet. Gives our defense and defensive coaches some nice accolades.

    Comments about our tackling technique when Rhoads got here are kind of scary.

    Another indictment against Chizik. That guy sucked.

    Tim must have forgotten that ISU isn't Texas. That story has multiple paragraphs and doesn't have a ton of misinformation.

    I like the reply from the NU fan that says "Patience is virtue" (never mind he didn't even word it correctly). A Husker fan telling us to be patient?!?! Yeah, Husker fans are as patient as they come.

    We've also taken advantage of a very weak Big 12 North. Still, it definitely has been our defense that's won us 6 games. Who'd have thought it?

    Re: Griffin: ISU's gritty defense paves way to bowl eligibility

    No matter how "weak", or even the teams are, we are in the top half of the group. We easily could've been the bottom without the fundamentals that they have learned from THIS coaching staff.

    I love Jesse's quote: “If you size up against a bunch of other teams, we might not have the height or speed, but we definitely have the football sense and the heart to play college football,” Smith said. “That’s more important than speed or size and it’s what this team has a lot of.”
