    This season is is looking similar to the previous two, and I'm not just referencing the overall record. Also, big mistakes continue to show themselves. Won't beat tougher competition with the continual mistakes, however I don't see them stopping anytime soon. I predict a similar overall record as the previous two.

    I agree. Manning is overrated as an offensive coordinator. His play calling was a problem his last stent here. As for the special teams. The first 2 years with Campbell, Gasser was the special teams coordinator and the special teams did well. Then year 3 he made Huston the special teams coordinator and we were terrible. This year special teams are a problem again. Some of Campbell ‘s decisions on his staff are questionable.

    I'd be fine with a 8-4/7-5 type of season but if there's wins left on the table, like last night's game feels like, that would be lame.

    Really want to beat them because of annoying fans. But the inevitable big 10 collapse coupled with crushing bowl losses generally provides fulfillment down the stretch.

    This thread is one hot mess. It’s one game. Improve and move on, best LM next weekend and prepare for a brutal conference gauntlet.

    Particularly frustrating this year. In prior years there was a lot of valid excuses for slow starts. This year they’ve been stable and healthy.

    It’s one game? We’ve been playing this way for awhile.

    It’s tough to win 8+ when you drop a home game to ******* Iowa

    Just think, if we were in the B10 we'd be
    Total of 18 points whether all in the 1st qtr or all in the last qtr is still just 18 points. Unless we only score 17.

    Yea we lost one game this season so far. Last year we started 1-3, if we start 1-3 again then I’ll bite but not yet. Its tough to win 8+ when you drop a home to UNI, Drake or anyone.

    Yet we've done it 2 years straight. I know your response will be we were close to going 4-9 but we were also close to going 10-4.

    im just going to throw this out there. I believe we lost because of a lack of player leadership. I think that will come by the end of the season. David Montgomery was more than just a player. I think they miss him in the lockerroom. just my opinion.

    We’ve won 7 and 8 games respectively. You disagree it’s tough to win more than that playing like we have the past 6 games? A home loss to Iowa makes more than 8 wins very unlikely.

    It’s a shame we’re likely going to waste a 10+ win defense with mediocre offense and special teams.

    Here's some perspective from five years ago.


    I hate losing to the ******* hoks as much as anyone, but we are way ahead of where we were as a program just a few years ago and light years ahead of the Walden era when I started attending ISU.

    I can’t believe OP is an actual isu fan..

    In 3 short years CMC has a winning record at isu

    Been to biggest bowl game at isu to date

    Has multiple Top 5 wins

    Won @ou

    Has put ISU on national map

    Brought Gameday to Ames

    Substantially upgraded the talent on this roster


    And you post a title of I’m sick and tired of Matt Campbell?

    Just stop and think about what life as an isu fan was like 5 years ago..

    I agree a loss to UNI/Drake/TOE makes it nearly impossible to win 9/10/11 games.....GO Cyclones beat ULM

    This staff always is telling the players how paying attention to detail and doing the small things win you games. That game was a perfect example.

    Penalties, turnovers, and mental mistakes are everything at this level.
