Re: Two Deep Offense

we did a lot of 2 TE and RB with FB sets .. putting them in motion, or fake motion .. it worked very well against lesser defenses, but the better defenses figured us out ... WIU, NDSU, UNI, SDSU. Agree we have to be able to spread things out against top defenses .. we're in this same category .. we'...

Re: Two Deep Offense

We need to have a lineup that forces them to defend the pass or get burned by it. Give Davis all the weapons/opportunity we can. If they still stack the box we better be able to pass on them else we have major issues with our passing game. I like this line up for every down, even on first downs. If...

Re: Two Deep Offense

The key for next year is to get the ball to James Robinson 25+ times a game every single game. That guy is your playmaker and a potential NFL starter. Davis spent a ton of time throwing 18 yard out routs and having safeties jump those toward the end of the season. You gotta pull those safeties down...

Re: Two Deep Offense

combining and restating TR, VirginiaRB and JHbird thoughts ... Davis was most certainly walking into a situation having not playe meaningfull game reps since his senior year in HS. He had a RS season, and injury season, then another season where he was 3rd string. Then he transfers during summer wit...

Re: Two Deep Offense

I can see why TR has Proctor running with the 2's. He can run it, catch it and even block a little. You can see what Iowa St. saw in him. Some real pretty KO Ret's. on tape. No dancing. He just hits it. Should be a great compliment to Robinson. http://www.hudl.com/athlete/1441121/jeff-proctor I saw...

Re: Two Deep Defense

came across pantagraph article from couple weeks ago that I glossed over first time .. read it closer. Spack did offer some insight about Harris ... saying, we needed more production from that position. Then indentified a few candidates for the hybrid Jack spot. https://www.pantagraph.com/sports/col...

Re: Two Deep Offense

Davis is 100% your QB for the next 2 years. The guy is incredibly talented. That said, I STILL wish we were more read option like we were back in 2012-2014. That style just flat out works better at this level than pro-style offense. But, the rosters you have here are STRONG. Robinson is just a mons...

Re: Two Deep Offense

Only real questions are at Center and WR, then backup QB and RB. You got Bones in there over Hirsch ... Bones is up from 305 to 335 in 2 years. Very interest to see if WR Blackman in play maker at this level, and if WR Haley becomes a more consistent factor. Got to believe our OL will be more consis...

Re: Running Back U ... 2019 recruiting class ... MVFC, nothing to see here !!

I think Brown sees the field this year, and Nigel White is still a few years out. I wouldn't be surprised to see Mueller to eventually become an all-conference safety (or possibly oversized DB) within a few years. Safety isn't a bad call at all ... but I really like his chances at RB given the weig...

I think this RB class will go down as easily the best "group" of HS RBs ever in one class for ISU: - Cole Mueller | RB | 6-0 | 190 | Wentzville, Missouri (Holt HS) ... 3 stars, FBS recruit - Pha'leak Brown | RB | 5-10 | 200 | Chester, South Carolina (Chester HS) ... 2 stars, FBS recruit - Nigel Whit...

Re: BETTER

I agree. Just from the video I wouldn't of thought 4.4 either. Whatever freshman gets some playing time next year at RB will probably be a pretty special back here. I might believe low 4.5's though ... word that came to mind watching him was "slippery fast. Somebody taught that kid how to run .. ve...

Re: Another huge verbal commit!

I'm willing to bet some money, this kids turns into a stud. I'm guessing he has FBS skills, just in a D-II body. Which probably means he is coming here with an even bigger chip on his shoulder. Put 3-5 lbs on each year, and watch him develop. Undersized guys like this love to prove themselves .. th...
