when you're getting blitzed every down it makes you look poor. They bring more bodies than we can block. Counter this with a few screen passes?

Ever?

You're young.

Young enough to have eligibility?
Maybe you could do better?
I could probably know who I was supposed to block. And at least get in front of them.

Its bad but I'm sure it has been worse at some point. We are Iowa State after all.

They are young, but yes, this OLine is TERRIBLE!
Sam doesnt stand a chance with them blocking and mess calling horrible plays 90% of the time

They're bad, no doubt. But they get a pass this season due to a ridiculous amount of injuries and a new position coach who is trying to rebuild them from the ground up. Next year will be the real test.

In ISU's dark years, we didn't get beat this badly by national championship Nebraska teams.

We may be young, but I don't see that we're young and talented. I see the B12 being as bad as it's ever going to be and we're still going to be lucky to win 1 league game.

Danny Mac's '97 O-Line was just as bad as this one and we only won one game that season. We were able to beat the powerful Baylor Bears in Ames for our only win....at least that's the way I remember it.

Schemes don't give them a chance. OUtnumbered on blitzes several times and no chance of any of our QBs ever hitting a hot route. High school stuff that we can't do
