    Is Bass Qualified?

    I asked it in another thread, but it was kind of buried.

    Does anyone know?


    A three legged dog walks into a bar and says, "I'm lookin' for the man who shot my paw."

    Screwed might be a bit strong, but I agree, we need a playmaking corner....if we don't get Bell we're almost screwed. The d-backs were worse than the o-line last year.

    That's an unfair comparison. That's like asking who is hottest between Rosie O'donnell and Roseanne? The are both pretty ugly and pathetic.

    Hopefully Bass isn't taking spelling class this spring. If eligibility would depend on that, we would be in trouble.

    Re: Is Bass Qualified?

    Well since our only other corner besides Singleton was just suspended and might be kicked off the team having Bell is probably a must.

    We know the offense is going to struggle again bigtime, so having a good D is going to be huge.

    Disagree. We had DeAndre til he went down with injury and our poor pass coverage had to more to do with lack of pressure by the line on the QB, poor lb coverage/safety coverage than it did w/ our corners

    Re: Is Bass Qualified?

    We also have Drenard Williams who started the last four games of the year last year and was getting a lot better he didn't play in the spring game though for some reason but he was on the 2 deep that was given right before.

    Totally agree. When you have zero pressure on the quarterback, and our coaches think playing 12 yards off the ball is a winning philosophy, it wouldn't matter if we had LaMarcus Hicks and Ellis Hobbs starting the whole season. Our pathetic pass rush over the years takes as much of the blame for our pass D as anything.

    Re: Is Bass Qualified?

    We could've had Hobbs and Jackson at corner and they would've looked bad. QB's had all day against us. Zero pressure up front spells big trouble.

    I hope Bell makes it but if he doesn't...we'll survive.

    Re: Is Bass Qualified?

    Not to write this season off before it starts, I'll still cheer as loud as ever, but I'm giving Chiz a pass on this year. I expect we'll see renewed enthusiasm and much more discipline, but talent is what's needed the most right now.

    If we don't get Bell, it'll hurt a lot, but one player shouldn't have the potential to "screw" us unless it's the QB and our backups stink--which they don't.

    I hope that Bass is spending as much time studying as he is hyping himself. He might want to square that away first. Talk is cheap and I prefer a quiet confidence, but to each his own. His performance on the field will speak for itself, assuming he gets in.

    Does anyone know if he can pickup the blitz? Stevie was very good at that and lord knows we'll need it.

    Can Bell take summer classes and still come in the fall?

    Re: Is Bass Qualified?

    Hey guys,
    So this is a little second hand, but I have class with Allen's girlfriend here at Iowa State every day. She said that Allen's worse case scenario is if some of the classes don't come through this spring he will have to take a May term class or two. He'll still be here just a little late.
    Take it for what its worth.
