    Some of Butler's longest plays in his career (what we think about for his 'Big Play Ability') were in games that Purdy was not QB. 2018 vs Oklahoma (Noland), 2017 at Baylor (Noland), 2017 vs Iowa (Park), 2017 Liberty Bowl (Kempt)...

    Plays like these did not inflate the QB numbers for Zeb, Kyle, or Jacob like they did for Purdy which shows he wasn't a bailout, but that Purdy was actually that accurate.

    Anybody else just feel sort of uncomfortable about all the national sports love ISU football is getting this year? It just feels so unusual, I don't know what to do with it.

    TCU at 16?! Why? Because they were bad last year and they always bounce back. Ok. C'mon man, you're better than that.

    Purdy's TD pass to Eaton at Oklahoma State was filthy too.

    Agreed.

    While I hope it's a bounce back year, it's going to boil down to QB play for the Horned Frogs. The OC is on the hot seat too. And no injuries of our key players.

    One bright spot is our DLine. Our stud DT is returning from a preseason injury from last year that kept him out all season. He was a beast his freshman year.

    I'll water the koolaid a little to help your blood sugar levels. ISU was the 75th scoring offense last year.

    If Brock and the OL have improved and Manning being back is a net positive we should be a top 30 team against the big xii defenses.

    Butler was third in the ncaa last year in avg YPR with 21.97 and lead the team in receptions and yards, of coarse it scews Purdy’s numbers. It’s not to say Purdy won’t be a great QB or have a great year, I just think that kind of avg says more about butler than purdy.

    Yeah, but there's this:

    "While Hakeem Butler was an excellent safety valve that allowed Purdy to chuck the ball up sometimes, Cyclones receivers finished the year with a drop rate of 8.7 percent. That's not good, and Butler was the biggest culprit (he had a drop rate of 15.2 percent)."

    He did constantly, in the same breathe saying he got bailed out there was also a lot of drops on some outstanding passes.
