    We have several guys who are dangerous with the ball. My question to you guys is who do you think deserves more touches? How should we get them the ball? I think we need to get Wimberly and Bundrage the ball more often.

    One last question: where was Justin Coleman last night? He played very well against UNI but I don't think he had a single target the entire game last night. We need more consistency from our receivers AND Richardson.

    He may have been targets once. The Hoks probably covered him because they thought he was our ace receiver after the first game. Teams are proud of 100 yard rushers. We have 100 yard receivers and 100 yard rushing totals.

    Cant block, so give the ball to the bruiser, and let him create his own holes.

    Does Rhoads kicking Mess's *** out the door count as a touch?

    They ALL deserve more touches. That means the defense actually making stops--and the offensive line blocking with consistency.

    I never saw Coleman on the field until the 3rd quarter. Not saying he wasn't in the first half and it's not like we ran many plays - but still.

    Bruns is another head-scratcher.

    With this ailment, Brun has literally disappeared...as a player and an emotional leader on the sidelines. We need him to get back to being himself ASAP.

    Wimberly needs to by put in the slot and set in motion to get run the sweep a lot more, like JJ Moses use to do. I don't think he can do a lot from the pistol with the horrifying OL play, but if you can get him the ball when moving he might be able to get the corner. He was very close to breaking a big play last night on the sweep.

    I've been impressed with Boesen. His onside recovery was huge and he has a non stop motor. EJ Bibbs has been great too. Give the ball to those two, sit Brun until he heals up cause he aint doing anything right now.

    I voted for Wimberley as I think we need ONE back and sub others when needed. BUT I think we need more passing plays to back up the D and keep them from loading the box for the run. Again, nothing that good play calling couldn't fix.

    We must be watching two different games. Not that the potential isn't there...I just haven't see it yet.

    Boesen has been solid, and I agree that Brun should sit until he's fully ready.

    Wimberly needs more touches in any way, shape or form Mess can get them to him.

    If the offense would stay on the field for more than about 4 plays, on average, there would be more to go around.
