    Not many things went well tonight, but he fought to the end. Rogers will be a star before he's done at ISU. Tonight was a tough one, but things will get better.

    The D started as badly as I've seen, but they did some growing up in there, and Knott coming in seemed to make the difference.

    No pressure. Is there a coach?

    Actually I'm really disappointed with George. I saw him get blown up a few times and have some air tackles. I bought a 52 jersey and was expecting bigger play,

    I thought it was his worst game as a Cyclone. Bad angles and got blown up quite a bit. Good news is we know he can play better as we have seen it

    Not to be a *****, but things literally couldn't get worse this year. We lost at home to a mediocre FCS team. Anyteam we play from here out is going to be more talented and we are going to have to play better to win a single game. Things COULD get better, but they literally can't get worse at this point in the season....

    Looked like Sam Richardson did most of the tackling and most of the running.

    Just put pressure on us because we have no deep threat.

    Jeremiah played like crap. He made no big plays, and didn't stand out at all. In fact, I don't remember too much about him at all...which is a big problem.

    The good news is that I'm guessing that JG realizes this more than we do...

    As a CB, that usually means you are being picked on. Sam had a rough game. Chsrles played well, I thought.

    Per the cyclones.com stats, Sam Richardson had 13 tackles. George had 2.

    Ouch.

    DB Sam Richardson was awful.

    I like JG a lot, I thought tonight was his worst game of his career here. That said, I am not worried about him, he will be fine. Some of the other spots though....

    I haven't really see JG play a solid game when he wasn't playing with Jake Knott and AJ Klein together. I do really like what Luke Knott showed us tonight though.

    The front seven were awful. The four in back had 45 of the 67 tackles or 68 per cent. Most of the front seven had one or two tackles. They were not fast to tackle. Very bad news.

    If your linebackers and safeties have to come up and make a tackle on every run there is a problem. It was like the defensive line wasn't even there!
