    Need to be proactive and make sure it is clear that we appreciate him and his staff. I’ve been a Cyclone for 45+ years and I had lost hope that we could ever have a football program like what CMC is building.

    Have you ever taken a Statistics class? What's the very first thing they teach in every Stats class? There are lies, damn lies, and statistics. Yes, we broke nearly every every offensive record in school history this year - and yet this year when we most needed the offense to perform more often than not it resulted in a 3-and-out, and usually because Manning thought he was the smartest guy in the room. I'll trade every one of those damn records broken this year for timely performance.

    Iowa, - 2 TO margin and multiple drives stopped in Iowa Territory
    Baylor, ISU did not score in the first 3 quarters
    OSU, 3 ints 4th qtr while defense gave up 3 points in the 2nd half. The offense gave up more points than the defense in the 2nd half!
    OU, gave up a lot of points but it is OU
    KSU, offense was beyond awful.
    Bonus below!
    vs. UNI the offense was terrible and offense vs. Texas disappeared for a good chunk of the game.

    IIRC our "3 and out" percentage was one of the lowest in the country

    If anything I think our offense took a huge step forward this year while our defense took a slight step back. Special teams was just awful

    So, ISU was favored in 11 games this season. Iowa ended up being favored at game time but ISU was favored all preseason and season until game week.

    ISU won 7 games.

    While I think Matt Campbell is a great coach, this year was actually a bit of a disappointment.

    Some times the offensive schemes just made me shake my head. UNI was trying to be bland but almost cost us the game. I think OSU was set up to make Brock get Heisman hype and it cost us the game.

    I also believe that is correct, but the operative phrase there was "when we most needed the offense to perform." Obviously that is highly subjective and people can argue about it all day, but I think most would agree the offense disappeared at some really unfortunate times.

    Correct, I said ISU was favored against Iowa until game week. OU was the game we were never favored in.

    Don't forgot we lost Bailey, Eisworth has been playing with one arm all year, and I Vance missed some time as well.

    People remember the bad times and not the good ones. We had some serious clutch offensive drives this year

    We were like...15th in the country in fewest three and outs.

    Should we shitcan Heacock too since the defense took a step back this year? Defense was given the lead and blew it against Iowa. Defense was given the lead and blew it in Waco. Defense gave up 3 50+ yard TDs against OSU on its own field. Defense buried the offense in Norman. Defense was awful against Kansas.

    I'd love to hear what offense ISU has had recently that you would have rather had than this one. It's really easy to cherry pick things to fit your narrative, as shown above.

    This should be a no brainer. Keep all of the coaches. Keep them happy. Make them want to stay.

    If money is any sort of determining factor for him leaving, then Jamie has failed.
