    Now that is how you tackle. Hang that on the board.

    This one says it all, IMO. Absolute pummeling.

    Nice tackle by Jesse, but it actually shows more of, How not to run with the football.

    I was always taught to wrap up the ball when I was getting hit. Sure looks like he's doing all he can to hold on to that football.

    I think he just means that the SDSU runner was way to upright.

    Coach Chizik is looking even leaner and fit than last year. Does he have any eligibility? :wink:

    That pic of Jesse's tackle reminds me. Today in the Rag, they quoted the SDSU coach as being impressed by how well ISU was able to "strike," meaning we had a lot of good pops in the open field. Now that I think back on it, he's right. I am quite happy with the not only the tackling ability in general, but the good ol' hard hits we were able to put on these guys. (Their qb took a lot of these)
