I haven't seen an Iowa State team this bad in a LOOOOOOONG time. And I've seen a lot of bad Iowa State teams. It scares me for the future. How are we supposed to keep guys like Lazard happy when we have no one worth a darn to throw to him? How are we supposed to stop anyone with such an anemic defense? And on and on. We can sit here and blame youth, injuries or Messingham for our failures, but guys, the reality is we just don't have much talent. Looking at other teams and the "youth" they have, I just don't feel good about the future of this program. Whereas just 3 months ago I was excited about the future of Iowa State football, today it depresses me to think about it. And I know, I should just sit here and give this year a pass like many fans are, but I can't. It would be one thing if we were at least competitive, but we're getting blown out of the water and being made to look like fools.
