    Not sold on AA

    Has ZERO touch, either throws 95 MPH fastball, or floats it up.

    So frustrating!

    Cool, can't we enjoy the victory tonight before you start your armchair analysis?

    more of the same with his decision making....though I'll say it doesn't look like he took too many risks tonight. That said....he's still got more picks than TDs.

    You may not be sold on him, but he's still our best option.

    Re: Not sold on AA

    I thought he did pretty well. One of his Int's was just a bad throw which happens on occasion. If he hits the man it is a TD. His accuracy has definitely improved from last year for the majority of his throws.

    Re: Not sold on AA

    I thought aside from those two throws, he was much improved, played with more of a purpose

    A couple of mistakes, but he was great overall. Klatt was sure impressed with him. (Klatt was a pretty good announcer when he wasn't calling us the Iowa Cyclones).

    His throwing motion is much better this year. He made several changes in his delivery. Throwing over the middle is not his forte.

    Re: Not sold on AA

    The first pick was a decent read but a bad throw - it went behind the receiver (and behind the DB/LB who was going the other direction infront of Sed), a defender got a hand on it and a safety was close enough to get to it. The receiver was open and had room to operate if the throw was there.

    Sed dropped some balls tonight which was frustrating.

    NIU seemed set on stopping the zone read. They held it in check pretty well, with just a few exceptions.

    Overall I thought it looked like NIU did a great job scouting us and preparing to stop our bread and butter. We hurt ourselves with some penalties and bad plays (no punts in 3 quarters and only 17 points?) but we had the mental fortitude and talent to cover them up against NIU. We won't be able to do that anymore, but we've got a long week to get things ironed out.

    Colin Franklin played like a man tonight. Love getting yards from the TE.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Uh, he had two mistakes and still beat the spread by nearly two touchdowns.

    I'm sold...at a huge markup. I couldn't be more pleased with tonight's performance.

    I could be more pleased. If he can stay consistent, he can be awesome. If he continues with that streak he has of shaky decisions, then it's trouble.

    Re: Not sold on AA

    As with Bret Meyer, Arnaud's biggest problem is his inability to read the field. He picks a receiver before the play and always throws to him. This is fine against teams like Northern Illinois but against teams who can actually defend us it doesn't work. I was really hoping he'd improve on this before the start of this season but it doesn't look good.

    I really like the guy but there really is no consistency.
