    I had us at 7 and this game may put us in the 6 win column. We could win 8-9 if they would show up to play an entire game. This 2-3 quarters of underachieving football has surprisingly still been good enough to have an opportunity to win all 4 of our games so far. Texas and Oklahoma will put up 30 if we come out dead before we wake up.

    Yes, if ISU is a first tier team, this should have been a 10 point win. We'll battle Baylor for a middle of the conference spot. Unfortunately, they have the tiebreaker on us.

    Well, it is now that time. This Iowa state game was frustrating to no end, watching a team that shouldn’t beat us beat us. Lots more to be said, but I’m not going to focus on that. I’m focusing on what’s important right now, and there’s only one thing that matters right now. I’ll never say this again (probably) Ohio State better win by 50 tonight.

    Several of our O-linemen don't look in very good shape.

    Can’t wait for his generic post game press conference full of coach speak where he blames only himself.

    Yeah, I think it's more of your last part of the sentence; RBs are decent, but we need Kene healthy because of his speed.

    Running backs should be (not counting Kene because he’s a package running back):

    1. Laing
    2. Brock
    3. Hall
    4. Me
    5. Assalley
    6. Croney

    Eh, played awful and lost to a last second fg. In a game where Baylor had 2 critical fumbles bounce into their hands, literally just standing there on the punt and the ball wedged itself between the guys arm and thigh.

    They have a ways to go but are far from the doom and gloom the fragile minds here love to predict.

    People, please please please don't use the heat as an excuse. If we're that fragile, we're screwed.

    Their performance going back to the drake game last year has been poor. The outlier is the ULM game.

    Yeah, agree with this. 3 out of the 4 games this year we haven't forced a single TO. And each of those 3 ended up being really tight games.

    The Kansas State one wasn't exactly good either. Kansas State just made enough mistakes late for us to get back in it and we actually had more than just a QB for offense last year

    We have lost 2 games by a total of 3 points. What we are not doing is taking the ball away, through 4 games I believe we have TWO turnovers. That is just not enough to make up the difference of lack of playmakers from the running backs.
    Today, we needed to get off to a quick start and we did not do that, we also left way too much time on the clock after taking the lead.
    We are also still giving up way to many 3rd and long plays to the opposition. Two sacks today, we are getting the QB to move off his spot, but then allowing him to escape and make a play.

    We have to get it going next week with TCU, do that, beat WV on the road and we will be fine.

    Oh Baylor sucks all right. They are not a bad FB team, but they still suck because of the off field stuff that went on for years.
