Go to a lot of soccer tournaments and find a place kicker.
May as well look for a few O Lineman as well.

Not going for it on 4th and 1 was cowardly. Coaching scared.

Offensive line is not as good as we hoped. Special teams not special...too many penalties. Need a FG kicker...maybe actually give a full ride to get a good one. Too many missed makeable FGs. Brady needs to learn to make the basic play to get the first downs. Big arm, but too many thrown into heavy coverage. Long off season for die hard fans.

Complete collapse for the season. Time to focus on developing the younger guys. Preserve redshirts that can still be saved.

We look good in a team photo, but we clearly and repeatedly have been manhandled and out physicalled by other teams. I don't know if it's recruiting, development, or coaching, but our lines have to play stronger.

The program continues to take large steps backwards.

Consistently missing FGs, and we aren’t just talking 40+ yard kicks.

Consistently getting out-manned in key situations.

Consistently making what I feel are poor game and clock management decisions. Seems a lot of our decisions the last few weeks have come back to bite us.

We are what we have been most years - a team that is going to give you an exciting couple wins but then take that excitement away with frustrating losses. Sometimes we make the playoffs, but some of those losses are just as frustrating (Richmond, C Ark)

If Roberson never came to ISU, Spack would have been let go by now, and rightfully so.
He has zero grasp of clock management and plays not to lose.

baffling decision there .. every box was checked for when and why you go for it on 4th down.

That was very disappointing. Like the last couple of games. There seems to be a total lack of focus and attention to any detail. At every position. Offense. Defense. Special teams. And especially coaching. Horrid turnovers and penalties. I can't believe we did not go for it on fourth down mid way through the 4th quarter. Not sure how this gets better, even next year.

Well the good news is that all the bitching about the STX game costing us a playoff spot has stopped......

Defense played well today ... their offense has given many teams fits. And if not for 3 turnovers, they would not have scored 28 points. We just couldn't consistently move the ball after strong start. Note, they are averaging 40 points per game if you exclude their FBS game and the UNI game where they got shut out. For the game, they only had 2 drives over 50 yards .... 52 and 67. We had 5 drives over 50 yards. We drew about even in yards rushed, and out passed them by 200 yards .. granted, 80+ came on last drive. Turnovers and penalties gave them alll the momentum they needed after Q1. And our vaunted run game is only sporadicly good lately.

Speaking of which ... something is up with Robinson ... not sure what, but he is not the same RB. Nice day for Smith .. he had a real nice broken tackle run when he fumbled after busting thru 2 guys. Instead of picking up 10+ more yards on a nice looking drive with ISUb clearly on their heels .. we fumble on our 38 yd line, which they take in for TD in 2 plays .. 10-7. Next series a pick returned to our 40 plus 15 yards for Davis face mask put them on on our 25.

Uphoff had several nice kick returns, but 2 ruined by penalties ... shows up in box score as 20 yards in penalties, but cost us 65 yards in field position. Not sure if the penalties helped Uphoff get those big returns.

Talk about Spack not being the right guy ... you have a short selective memory. Is he oerfect ... no, but were playing in the MVFC and play top 10 SOS every year. And now the standard at ISU is such that, finishing 6-5 is viewed as a failure. When Spack got here, which was before NDSU was winning Nattys, and just after all the Dakota's started joining the conference ... the MVFC was a weak conference ... 2 bids usually. Now it gets 4 or 5 every year. So there is big difference between 6-5 since 2011, and 6-5 prior to 2010. I don't like 6-5 and yes, we aren't as good as we thought ... but I still like this roster and what we have coming back next year. Mainly need to shore up the OL and work on Davis's accuracy & efficiency; and hopefully if Robinson is nursing an injury, it gets better.

The defense was a pleasant surprise this year and will only get better ... recall we lost 9 of 11 fullest time starters from a year ago. The Offense showed some things and then slipped when going got real tough. But it's not like the cupboard is bare ... there is talent and depth on both sides of ball, just didn't come together like many of us hoped.

So I'm frustrated we fell short this year, but looking forward to next season ... we have a lot coming back on our 2 deep.
