    Re: ISU Preview on CFN

    I agree with one of the last statements in that article. I keep remembering coming to ISU as a freshman in 2004, and learning about the 2-10 disaster the previous year, and then the excitement that followed when the team ended up scoring big-time when they bounced back with a 7-5 record. 6-6 is about what's expected, but 7-5 going into a bowl game would be about as much as anyone could ask for.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    2006 Fun Stats:
    - Second quarter scoring: Opponents 118; Iowa State 58
    - Sacks: Opponents 38 for 244 yards; Iowa State 24 for 142 yards
    - Penalties: Opponents 72 for 701 yards; Iowa State 56 for 429 yards
    Those are fun facts?

    They changed the article from earlier. When I read it earlier in the morning it had Jon Banks as our 4th and 6th best player. I thought, "Damn, Chiz must really be impressed!!"

    I can't believe they called Caleb Berg our 8th best player...


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    I can't believe they have Culbertson as our 5th best. If that's truly the case come fall, we're in big trouble.

    They listed backup quarterback as a major weakness of the offense.

    They also said that Culbertson doesn't easily get rattled, and they called Tuba undersized since they think he is 285 pounds.

    look at Culbertson's stats. he deserves that recognition. What people remember are his two missed kicks. I agree they were HUGE kicks, but I believe both happened early in his career.

    He doesn't deserve recognition for how many kicks he misses in big games. It's not just the two kicks you speak of. He has missed plenty of kicks in our bigger games the last few years. He missed a chip-shot @ Nebraska in 05. I believe he missed one @ Iowa last season that was not a tough kick. How about the kick against Missouri last season? I could go on, but don't feel like doing the research. He is no where near our 5th best player.

    Re: ISU Preview on CFN

    Uh, he's missed more than 2. Missed one last year that could've put the Missouri game out of reach.

    I want Shaggy to make a big kick and get that monkey off his back just as much as anyone else. For the most part he has been accurate. But if the game is on the line and he's on the field, I don't have a good feeling.

    That automatically disqualifies you from being in the team's top ten players.

    SCORING TD FGs Kick Rush Rcv Pass DXP Saf Points
    Culbertson,Bret 0 8-10 16-16 0-0 0 0-0 0 0 40
    2 misses - one big one that everyone remembers - he was a walk-on freshman
    big miss being 24 yd. against Missouri - final score (14-17) LOSS

    missed - 36 yd. vs. KSU - final score (37-23) WIN

    Culbertson,Bret 0 12-16 34-34 0-0 0 0-0 0 0 70
    4 misses - 2 big misses - his worst year by far - walk-on sophomore
    big miss - Missouri - 43 yd. - final socre (14-17) - LOSS
    big miss - Kansas 41 yd. - final score (21-24) - LOSS

    missed 43 yd. vs. TAMU - final score - 42 -14 - WIN
    missed - Nebr. 26 yd. - debatable the signifigance of this kick -final score (20 - 27) - LOSS

    Culbertson,Bret 0 8-11 24-24 0-0 0 0-0 0 0 48
    3 misses - the Mizzou one could have been huge but the team recovered and won the game -
    big miss - none
    missed 45 yd vs. Iowa - lost the game 27 - 17 - this kick is not why we lost - LOSS
    missed 40 yd. vs. KSU - lost 31 - 10 - we got our butts kicked - LOSS
    missed 28 yd. vs. Missou - we won - WIN

    SO - 3 big misses that cost us games all of which came in the first 2 years of a walk-on

    100% extra points
    76% on field goals

    Like I said EVERYBODY thinks of the Mizzou and Kansas games both of which were HUGE for this program (i.e. big 12 division on the line.)
    I agree he needs that BIG made field goal to help define his career. He is a consistent performer but can NOT be called a clutch performer...yet.

    Who would you put in his place in the top 5 off of this year's squad?

    Re: ISU Preview on CFN

    Shaggy is a good kicker as long as there is no pressure. He did make a couple of extra points in OT against Toledo so that has to count for something. One thing that is always overlooked is that Shaggy has NEVER missed an extra point. For being a walk-on who just showed up one day, he's done pretty well.

    What I don't get is how Zitek isn't one of our top 10 players?
