    Did you ever hear the one from the accounting class?

    What is 2 + 2?

    That's one of those empty statistics though. Most drives start on our side of the 50. We continually sputtered out after crossing the 50. So a lot of those drives without a 3 and out didn't mean ****

    An extension is meaningless unless you also raise the buyout IMO.

    the buyout won’t increase. It was already crazy high.

    Our history is mostly bad. 12 game schedules are a relatively recent thing. The Big 12 style of play is a relatively recent thing. We put up 72 points in a single game. All of that contributes to that stat being a little misleading.

    Our offense was pretty good. It was nowhere near being some unstoppable juggernaut.

    Nearly 30% of those points came in two games (17% of the games), one game being against a G5 team. And another 16 points came against an FCS team in overtime.

    I never said we were some juggernaut but to pretend Manning was bad this year is incredibly stupid IMO

    Don't forget being held scoreless for 3 quarters against Baylor! Or the offense disappearing for a lot of the Texas game or getting past the 50 multiple times against UNI and Iowa and coming up empty handed. We did put up 41 on Kansas and 72 or whatever on ULM though so there is that.

    I agree with that. I just don't think that "most points in school history" is a real strong defense of Manning, that's all.

    I mean no matter how bad we are historically it's a pretty big deal. We lost two guys early to the NFL and still put up the most points in the CMC era

    This is absolutely insane. The most ****** up part is the ones ******** the most will be the most up in arms if Campbell leaves.

    “Seize the moment” was the phrasing. The moment being an opportunity to bring some positive news following an ugly last game of the regular season before bowl selections are made.

    Thanks for getting in your negativity though.

    Here's the list to pick from. Who do you want over Manning from Iowa State's recent history:
    Steve Loney
    Steve Brickey
    Barney Cotton
    Robert McFarland
    Tom Herman
    Courtney Messingham
    Mark Mangino
    Todd Sturdy

    At worst, Manning is the 2nd best option there.

    I think Manning has done some really good things with the offense. But he also ran some things on offense that made you scratch your head and say wtf are you thinking?

    We need to keep this staff at all costs....I'm not ready to take a step backwards. Anyone thinking differently us crazy! Sure the defense wasn't up to par at times, but that happens. This staff knows that! My only issue with this team is our special teams. They were absolutely dreadful. I'm not sure why we don't utilize the high, short kick more because our kickers can not kick it out of the end zone. Make an upback field it! But again, pay this staff and keep them in tack!
