    First Play of 2010 Season

    What would you guys like the first play of Cyclone football to be this year? Hoenstly, i really REALLY hate the dumb "lets just get things started with a run up the middle". I know A-Rob is our best offensive player, but i think coming off a bowl win and with the excitement the way it is we need to start things off with a boom. I would like the first play to be a play action deep route to Darius Money Reynolds. Just something that the NIU defense doesnt expect right away. If the play ends up going for an incompletion then thats alright too. It just shows were here to play some dang ball. I also wouldnt put anything pass Herman to do this. I guess i'm just not a fan of conservative play calling to get games started.

    And if we kickoff, then I'd vote for a pick 6.

    i guarentee it will be a run up the gut... only thing i dont like about our offense is that the play calling is a bit too predictable. 3rd and short=QB draw 9 out of 10 times. 3rd and long=short slant routes that go nowhere near the first down marker

    But remember this is another year in this offense with Arnaud and company. We all know how Herman liked to toss the ball around at Rice. Make no mistake he will do it here too if we can.

    Herman is a pass happy play caller and coach. We just dont have the weapons that have proved to do it yet(that we know of yet ).

    Running the opening kickoff back for a touchdown is a bad omen for me. Every game I can think of where it has happened the team lost.

    the QB draw seems to work. arnaud is great at it, but if a defense watches any film on us, they will know to expect it

    I remember saying if Devin Hester takes the opening kickoff back against the Colts, the Bears are screwed...

    Typically, I'm a fan of the passing attack. But with ARob, I say give him the ball early and often. I hope he goes for 200+ yards vs. NIU.

    Re: First Play of 2010 Season

    Call me boring, but I would love to have a game against NIU where we run way more than pass. I am thinking 70% run, with most being ARob and backups. No sense having AA run the ball and risk injury if we do not need him too. Not sure I want ARob to get 200 yards, unless we need too. I would rather have him get 100+ yards, Woody and another back each get around 50 yards, and a few carries to others so they see the field. Of course, this will require a 2 score lead most of the second half, and I also hope that happens.

    Start with the offset I, fake handoff to Arob, TE streak (with clothes on) right down the middle and hitting C. Franklin for a 20+ yard gain.

    It should be the read option on 3rd and short. The guy taking the snap is damn near a guarantee for 2 yards per play.
