Did Baylor lay back in that horse crap bend but dont break defense? No, they brought the house.
What did we do on their last drive? 3 man rush, drop back 10 and give up the 10 yard passes, and the game. No pressure on the qb..
I think had at least 4 blitzes on their last drive.
Two ones where we brought 5-6 and two where we brought a corner.

You could see the ending a mile away. 3:30 left up by one. I'd bet the mortgage we give up game-ending FG on 75% of that situation, no matter the coach or year.
Tough call, problem is we were getting killed by Brewer running up the middle of we vacated the area. They were sending corner blitzes that didn’t get home.

The offense doing nothing for 3 quarters is what needs to really be addressed. Not our last defensive possession
If the defense hadn't given up long scoring drives when a stop was needed in the two losses I'd agree with you.

But they did. So I don't...although the offensive awfulness is a problem.

Offensive line play was horrid most of the night

OL has been terrible this season, no running game which hurts the D. The offense has not been good in 3 of 4 games. I think we know where the problem is with this team.

Defense gave up 23 points on the road in the heat while the offense absolutely sucked. Where is the problem on this team?

The offense was not good, but it got the lead. The defense just needed to get a stop. It didn't.

Giving up scoring drives when you need a stop is bad. That is a problem on this team.

The OL has always been the problem going back a really long time at ISU.

Until that gets fixed, you can't really expect much.

We can't run the football. You can't ever really be an effective offense without being able to run the ball.

Like the Iowa game our D has a chance to put it away for us... that is the frustration...
Ehhh....our offense was the trouble today. Again, we can't win every game by scoring 21 points. We have to put more points on the board if we are going to be elite.
