    Herman

    I've heard many people say they were disappointed in what Herman did last year. I haven't really looked at it until today and here is what I found out.

    ___________2008________2009
    rushing-----1661---------2340
    passing-----2981---------2401
    total-------4642---------4741
    3rd %------38%---------41%
    4th %------50%---------58%
    red zone----71%---------84%
    1st downs---241---------252

    Except for passing yards, ISU improved in every area despite Big 12 defenses being dramatically improved over last season (Average total defense for the Big 12: 2008-402.14 ypg, 2009-340.44 ypg) and being year one into implementing a completely different system from what ISU has had in the past. I'm looking forward to seeing what he can do next year.

    3rd down and red zone improving especially were much better. still room for improvement. It also helped having a MUCH improved defense that wasn't on the field 90% of the game.

    Great post. The key for the offense will be Austen 'getting it'.

    Re: Herman

    3rd and 4th down and red zone efficiency all stems from being able to run the ball. ISU did a much better job of that and it made everything easier. The only question is how AA didn't have a better year since he had a better run game and good protection. Next year it all comes down to his improvement.

    From what I saw against Minne, he is. He made two bad decisions but otherwise was pretty good. His throws were great for the most part. If Herman gets his mechanics right it could be a special season for him.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Re: Herman

    I was very pleased with Herman this year. QB play was questionable at best during a large stretch of the season. Then, we had one of our top receivers in Darks being banged up half the year.

    I think we'll have a top 25-30 offense nationally next year. Arnaud will be a lot better.

    Re: Herman

    Do those yardage totals include the bowl game for this year?

    ******! Herman knows what he's doing for ****sake, and so does CPR. For some stupid reason, I've always felt the need to explain myself to this audience, and I've never called anyone out, but this thread ******* STUPID...sorry.

    no one in this thread has said he isn't. In fact everything seems quite the opposite of saying that.

    I'm pretty sure the point of this thread is to praise Herman, not to criticize him.

    Mr. Herman, is that you? :P

    I don't want to over-hype what Tom has done thus far, but I am cautiously optimistic about where he can get this offense by mid season next year. Like I said I'm probably setting myself up to be disappointed, but I really believe we'll see the high-octane Rice-style offense he put together a few years back.

    I would recommend you don't ever call anyone out again. You called someone, I don't know who, out yet there is nothing to call anyone out for. I think the OP showed these stats with the intent to show that in his first year our offense was better than the previous.

    I agree that Herman is the right guy. The only thing that bothers me is I could swear I have read 2 or 3 different times during the year that Austen has finally picked up the offense. Don't get me wrong, I hope he has it just seems like a recurring story that I am still a little skeptical of. I think a fairly accurate QB would flourish in Herman's system and I hope Austen can be that QB.

    I was reacting to reasons such a thread needs to be started. Apparently there is some dissention concerning the offense, or this thread would not exist. Am I wrong?

    If I am, I apologize in spades. If I am validated, I apologize for nothing related to my rant, and I'll probably throw some more *******s in there for good measure.
