    Watching Soundoff tonight.

    Andy Fales keeps saying the game Saturday night was blah. His only reasoning seems to be that we were only running the ball and haven't had a "spread explosion" yet. Meanwhile, he is jacking off about another certain game that happened Saturday night which had nothing even close to resembling a spread. The two don't really add up. I thought the 3rd quarter of the Army game was a thing of beauty. IMO -- One of the best quarters of Cyclone football in quite awhile and the way we should play every game.

    Disclaimer: Not saying Fales shouldn't be excited about the Hawkeyes. He definitely should be. It just doesn't make sense how he's negative on the Cyclones.

    I understand his position and am not bothered by it.

    I didn't really take that away from his comments at all.

    He was simply saying that it's kind of silly to spread out 5 WRs when you have a good RB and run the ball all the time. And I agree.

    Spreading the field out creates holes for your running back. The spread isn't just about throwing the ball. The spread "spreads" out the field.

    A-Rob is top ten in rushing and it's working.

    Please clarify his position for me. So, we should move to a Power I?

    I have no idea what his position was. You claimed you understood, so I'm asking you to enlighten me.

    I think he's saying we shouldn't run a spread offense, but not sure

    This. Putting 5 WRs on the field makes the defense account for all 5 of them, allowing less to focus on the run. No (smart) defense will ignore wideouts in order to stop the run, they'd get burned all day through the air. Herman has said in numerous interviews that he'll make the D cover all 53 yards of field width--seems to be working for our run game.

    I "think" what he is trying to say is that we need to throw the ball more. And i completely agree. How much tape do BigXII defenses have now of us running the ball the whole game and AA struggling to throw it at times. We should have used the second half last night as a bit of a practice. But thats just me.

    The fans who called in tonight probably shouldn't be allowed to make phone calls.

    What he was saying (in my mind) is that he is wondering where the high-powered passing attack is supposed to be. Right now ISU is somewhat one-dimensional.

    what pisses me off is that they keep calling adam robinson, A-Rob.... HE IS NOT A-ROB. The real A-Rob is alexander robinson. they have given him no credit really. #10 rusher in the nation and #2 in the Big XII, yet no mention of how great he has been. its all been how great adam robinson is. **** that. they are raggin on ISU a ton tonight

    We were winning by 7 points to begin the 2nd half. If we had started "practicing" as you put it, we may have thrown the game away.

    And they'd have tape of us throwing the ball if we did that.

    Why would you try and fix something that isn't broken? We're running the ball very well right now and winning football games. Arnaud didn't look awful last night, and there were times his receivers weren't helping at all in most cases. We need them to realize you can't took from a sprint in one big step. Use smaller steps to make your breaks instead of trying to plant and falling down.

    Plus, Big 12 teams already have a year and change of tape on Arnaud. There's not much we can do that they already don't know about Austen.

    Classic example of how bad local tv programming can be and why it is only on the air late at night.

    I think Keith Murphy does a pretty decent job but otherwise Central Iowa is cursed with some of the worst local sports radio/tv people around -- Fales, Miller, Deace, and all the clowns that either worked for or got fired from KXNO.

    In-state media is focusing on the most popular team in the state upsetting a top 5 team and not giving us our dues when we beat a ****** academy team and you are surprised? Who the hell cares "who the real A-Rob is?" It's a name, we don't need a patent on it to know who is better.
