    Agree. Defense has kept us in three games this season, but they have dropped the ball in extremely crucial situations. I am in the camp that Heacock screwed up by not dialing up pressure to start the last drive.

    Sure, but the current identity of ISU football has nothing to do with the Iowa game.

    This game felt like the TCU game last year, we came back to tie it only to lose. The season felt like it was over and the next week we won at OSU and we were off and running. Hopefully, we beat TCU next week and the same thing happens. IMO, beat TCU, split Texas and KSU equals an 8-4 record, sweep them and it’s 9-3.

    Honestly, this was exactly like the Iowa game. Struggled on offense most of the game, then finally take the lead, and the defense lets the other team go on a long drive to end the game on a FG. Frustrated with the offense, but, man the defense needs to make those critical stops, or catch the INTs that they have a chance at.

    You can criticize “the run game” without naming players, for example.

    Nope.

    Can't basically shot put a pass like Purdy did on that interception or block a defender from a route tree like Kolar did to kill drives.

    Well we did have the QB switch after the TCU game and I don't expect that we'll have a big personnel move this year.

    Who knows what will happen? My gut has been that we are due for a course correct after the last 2 seasons. But hopefully I am wrong.

    Lolz. Zero points. Zero F :)CKING points in the first half. They held Iowa to 18 points. This team has a winning problem and it AIN'T the defense.

    Do you think he thought the run game was good?

    The difference is the things he’s really good at are exactly what we need and if he could just be average at things like starting seasons, offensive line play and other major problem areas we will take that next step. Until then we will win between 5-8 games and be really dependent on luck.

    I have a firm belief Brock will only get better and correct his mistakes.

    some of the very ones you mentioned, ironically enough.

    and do you think Mac was a good coach, let alone great?

    He's still a young coach. I just have faith he'll improve. Coaches have improved without showing as much good as Campbell has.

    I didn't think you'd name anyone. Don't make stuff up.

    RIght but this is also year 4. I’m in no way saying I’m disappointed with where we are at but I do think we need to take a long look at our offensive situation. We not only have a talent gap but major scheme issues as well. We are wasting our best defenses with some really inconsistent offenses

    We literally haven't been blown out in 3 years....it's bound to happen sometime, but why we assume it will is beyond me.

    Yes, but if you listen to people on here, the previous coach left him with jack ****. So we should be saying it is ONLY year 4. ;)

    We can't beat good defenses. Campbell has beaten one team with a top 50 defense. Something to the tune of 1-10. Totally inexcusable.
