    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    Agree..... although I'd say we're more like a 5-7 win team with the occasional 8 wins or 3-4 wins.

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    3rd and 6 "grounding play" where the game completely turned. Pre-snap (OSU showing that they are bringing 7 guys)..... They do bring all 7.... but all 4 of our receiving targets are running longish routes that take forever to develop. By the time Purdy needs to get rid of it, all the...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    You don't need speed to burn a blitz. Some very simple play calls can do it just fine, and many don't even involve getting your OL downfield at all. If we can't beat teams that bring pressure on us all game.... then we're doomed.

    Which of our prior offensive coordinators would you prefer?

    Wow.... that's a bad list. I'll go with Jay Jordan!!

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    Yep.... you're right..... there's nothing ISU could do to take advantage of OSU's aggressive defense because we just don't have the talent or the speed..... so teams should just copy what OSU did to us and we'll never win another game again...... got it.

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    To do what? Slip in behind the OL and take a quick dump off pass? That doesn't take any speed whatsoever.... and once you catch the dump off... you have 4-5 OL in front of you.... I could run behind that and get huge yards.

    Wide Receivers and Their Disappearing Act

    Pettway was a beast. I don't think he gets the credit he deserves. Very physical WR, caught everything near him (even in traffic)... and also ran over people with the ball in his hands.

    Where should I move?

    Easy answer..... Canada.

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    I totally disagree with the bolded above. Yes, our OL isn't very good and the blitzes up the middle were killing us.... but you can totally abuse teams that are doing that to you if you know what to do. I can't remember which NFL team it is.... but on some of their plays, their OL...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    Don't agree. With a good OC.... teams can destroy blitzes all day long with pressure up the middle. It creates huge advantages all over the field for you if you know how to scheme against it.... which Manning has no clue how to do. The play where Purdy gets called for grounding was a...

    Wide Receivers and Their Disappearing Act

    The bolded part above is THE issue. If teams are going to bring multiple blitzers a majority of the time, that means our TEs and WRs are in single coverage.... and yet they still can't get any separation at all..... why? And OSU seemed to mostly bring the blitz right up the middle...

    Kirk Ferentz getting sued for being racist

    If you're going to be a mediocre football team..... why put up with a racist head coach and his son? Why not just be mediocre and have decent human beings on your coaching staff instead?

    A bad B1G defensive weekend

    As usual... the B1G West has one good team.

    Kirk Ferentz getting sued for being racist

    The Iowa fans answer to 20 years of racism in their football program is to go back to it because there's no way they can win without being racist...... got it. Very interesting angle by that brilliant bunch.

    *** Official #17 IOWA STATE vs #6 Oklahoma State Game(Day) Thread ***

    One was Randy for sure, and I don't blame CMC a single bit for that one. Randy asked why we punted it instead of kicking it in the endzone. CMC said we never "punted" it on a kick off. Randy said something like.... well Corey Dunn did.... and CMC said he drop kicked it.... and then...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    He couldn't do s**t against Louisiana either.... I don't recall them getting that much pressure on him??

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    But Shaw was able to do it last year.... so what's wrong this year? He's shown he's more than capable. I just watched CMC's presser, and he kinda ticked me off to be honest. Blaming pass catchers on their drops.... but you will never ever find him blaming Purdy for anything. Nothing...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    It's not like we're a bad football team.... not at all.... but I just think we all know that we could possibly be special with a smarter and more creative offense and some better special teams..... that's all. Numerous posts by people in just the last half hour on here have had better...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    ^this times a million! We have never tried anything different. We never mix it up. It's horrible to watch. Iowa's offense looks creative and dynamic compared to ours.... that's how bad it has gotten. You target ONE WR all day basically..... that's it? That's insanity...

    Why is our passing game hot garbage?

    Shaw is 6'6" and can leap.... you can't tell me we can't throw some deep ones up for him like we did to Lazard and Butler. I was so glad we finally threw one deep ball today.... and I didn't even care it was intercepted either.... even the annoucers said it was still a good call because...
