    What. A. ****. Show.

    He claimed that our RBs went down on first contact every time vs UNI and he was ADAMANT about it. “Cyclone fans aren’t used to that!”, he said .I was thinking to myself, “that didn’t happen.”

    So now I’m going back and watching the condensed version of the game and lo and behold, our RBs we’re getting through first contact often and easily and in to the second level all game.

    Sorry for another Randy thread but guy is a moron. Great contacts, knows nothing about actually playing sports.

    Maybe he forgot the part where all 4 of our RBs averaged over 4.3 per carry in the UNI game. Oh Randy, you're a effing tool!

    He's been really down on the RB room for a couple years, outside of Montgomery. He LOVED Montgomery.
    There were a few borderline awkward exchanges last year when Birch or CW would talk about the depth and talent in that room, and then ol' Randy would go off on how unproven they all were/are.

    Lang goes down too easily. He also cut behind his downfield blockers on one run instead of outside where he would have scored. Nwangwu also goes down too easily, but his speed outside makes up for it some. He was the key on the TD drive to start the second half vs UNI. Hall does a really good job of running through contact for a FR. But he's maybe a little indecisive getting to the hole. That will improve over time. I actually thought that Croney played the best out of any of them against UNI. He probably earned the start on Saturday, but that fumble is a concern.

    I think the problem was it was like 150 degrees that day. Hyperbole alert.

    Talent and production. I'm OK saying our talent in the RB room hasn't produced. Maybe there is potential, but calling it talent without production is a stretch. Same with our OL, same with our WRs...

    I can confirm that with a little practice, penetrating the hole gets much easier. Just need to make sure to penetrate the hole in the right gap.

    Who cares what he thinks I haven't taken anything he says seriously in years.

    I like to think of Randy as a Milton from Office Space. The Register actually stopped issuing him paychecks years ago but he keeps showing up at stuff and giving them pieces and they can't afford to hire someone new so they just run with it.

    This has nothing to do with the matter at hand and subject of this thread.

    To be honest most of Randy's work these days I consider "fluff pieces." Just random babbling of thoughts he has with no real substance but he has to use up enough words to fill a column. I probably don't even bother to read 90% of what he writes because it's either old news or something that is obvious. Occasionally he'll write up a nice side article on a player, coach, or something related to the athletics program that doesn't actually have anything to do with a game or strategy that is worth a read.

    The Register in general just seems to be dying a slow painful death. They have a barebones staff to give you minimal local coverage of stuff to stay relevant but the bulk of their actual print media is just recycled AP stories anymore.

    I’d like to think the guy has paid his dues and maybe would be good to have a beer with or something but god damn it man. How do you constantly do your job so poorly? I mean for Christ sakes...

    Huh, you must have seen a different game than I did. Remember specifically on at least a couple runs he could not be brought down by UNI.
