    What's funny is if ISU somehow pulls that game out last night, this thread doesn't exist.

    It was a bad loss but it's interesting what a loss does.

    I would have still made the thread as I’ve been expecting as much with the various rumors out there, but it would have had a different tone.

    I feel like this was said much more eloquently than I could have put it.

    Tonite, we kick straight away to the league's leading KO returner. No other strategy considered. In fact, no other options looked at all season for potential turn overs. Other season long special team debacles are well documented on CF. No coaching accountability.

    How on god's great earth do you have any idea that there is no coaching accountability?

    Stupid, stupid fans.

    That doesn't mean he didn't take accountability. Did you consider maybe the kicker wasn't supposed to kick it to him? I agree ST were hot garbage this year but I don't see your claim of Campbell skating his duties.

    I kicked off in high school. Was told to skip the ball down the field. Other team moved a guy over and I pulled my head and kicked the tee instead and the ball went 8-9 yards. Coach was not unaccountable there, I just screwed up, it happens. I wasn’t pulled from it either because I was the by far best option we had.

    Sometimes the ball goes where you didn’t plan it to go.

    Some people seem to think building a program looks like this:
    3-9
    5-7
    6-7
    7-6
    8-5
    9-4
    10-3
    11-2
    12-1
    13-0

    When in fact it looks like this:

    3-9
    8-5
    8-5
    7-5 (bowl game to go)
    9-4
    7-6
    8-5
    11-2

    Success isnt linear, there are peaks and valleys. We all want the same thing. It will take time, and the only way to get where we want is by continuity.

    We were not outclassed in any game we played this year, or the year before, or the year before. We will never out talent our entire schedule so the formula to 10+ wins and conference championships is recruit enough talent to be competitive and deep, have enough coaching and scheme to put our players in the right positions, and win in the margins. The gap between 7 and 10+ wins is extremely small. As long as we have Campbell I believe we'll get there.

    The better question is when did we ever have talent assembled such that Vegas favored us in 83% of our ganes.

    I agree with the raise, and then another extension after next year with 10 wins.

    That’s a (smart) move to defer taxes, but doesn’t really have impact on how long he’ll stay. I think everything else is spot on, though.

    So overall momentum, which I agree it's there. However, this season did not help momentum, which is my point.

    I read it wrong, my apologies.

    Would you think ISU had momentum if they were 8-4?
