    There two specific plays where he didn’t go down on 2nd 3 rd or 4th contact and the linemen caught up and pushed the scrum another 5 yards.

    Last week Randy put out a Twitter Survey asking who Iowa State misses more, Butler or Montgomery? The F**** head literally took a one game sample size and basically said "I told you so". He is completely worthless.

    Next time you hear him on the radio, keep track of how many times he repeats himself, says "wow", and/or stumbles his way into a 30 second answer than contained 5 seconds of actual content. He's ******* terrible...

    It helps to be slippery as well

    Montgomery was special and Randy is just catering to the lowest common denominator.

    Agree completely. I assume the Register's sports coverage has taken a beating in recent years from fan sites that have expanded their own journalistic capabilities, like CF. You can read something neutral at the Register or you can read something similar here written by someone who experiences the joy and pain that we fans do.

    I think the Register has recognized that and tried to mimic that tone in its own coverage. Randy tries, but I don't think his heart is in it...at least not as much as Leistikow, who is a full-on propagandist and barely even pretends to be otherwise. That kind of thing would have been unthinkable perhaps even 10 years ago. (That said, I think Iowa's fan base wants to be pandered to a lot more than ISU's does, so that may have something to do with it.)

    I wonder if he ever found his red Swingline stapler?

    All of the running backs need to keep their feet firing through contact. Maybe that was what Randy was saying? Didn't listen to the podcast but I was only really impressed with Croney and Lang in flashes. I think the freshman has a bright future but he needs to grow up fast to follow in David's foot steps.

    IIRC Butler never had 14 catches in one game and Randy's one game sample should have included acknowledging that ISU's receivers caught some tricky passes. Pettway's two TDs looked routine but he wasn't exactly wide open.

    It's also failing to notice that Kene and Croney have held their own when DM was gone. Gee, missing a potential NFL OROY in the first game? Who'd a thunk Randy.

    Yes, but Randy has a way of muttering and bantering a lot of nothing and then trying to recoup his statement at the end. I think he's getting old and trying to stay relevant but his faculties are starting to become obviously dated.

    Why do they think they need him on the show anyway?

    He's probably a decent guy with good advice from experience. A sage for these young journalists. Some pity for sure is involved.

    Yea Randy - That play where the smallest player on the field - Johnny Lang - went down so fast with 11 panthers draped on him that it got Knipfels helmet torn off. Good analysis buddy.

    Somebody get him committed.

    Wait, are Randy and @clonedude the same person? Come to think of it, I have never seen them in the room together?

    Who ever gets PT is likely earning it partly on blocking which might be the hardest thing for the least experienced RBs to do constantly IMHO. Croney is likely best blocker.

    Yeah, I agree that Croney is the least likely to miss an assignment. He's also pretty stout and runs hard. I think that he's our best bet right now assuming that fumble was a fluke. The plays for Nwangwu can be a little predictable. Hall may be the guy later in the season, but I feel like he isn't ready to be the lead back just yet.
