    I used to think randy was a joke, and that he was a complete ISU apologist. However, then I got exposed to Nebraska media. They are 1000x more in the bag than randy.

    Peterson also blocked me on twitter for no apparent reason. Maybe he just blocks Iowa fans carte blanch.

    Next year as time is winding down inside Kinnick for our 6th win in a row over isu, all Iowa fans should start chanting "Little Brother" over and over again.

    During one of the delays on FS1, Reggie Bush was commenting about the Mich State / Arizona State ending and he said his coaches at USC always preached to the team to not let a game stay close enough where the refs can decide the outcome. Great advice.

    Uh, not to nitpick here, but didn't "the officials" subsequently vacate all games that Mr. Bush played in during a season or two after determining that he was ineligible to play college football?

    True. But that doesn't mean what he said was wrong.

    Also doesn't negate how great that 2004 USC team was like it or not.

    Stanley's 3-0 record against ISU is downright PHAT!

    Great advice. This is what winning programs do and what programs do that have 100 times the resources, budget, tradition, etc that iowa does. Zero excuse.

    It seems an unusual number of their fans don't have a full grasp of the rules or they get high school vs college vs pro mixed up. I know I do, too, from time to time.

    But it's the morons that keep whining when they are wrong only because it fits their sad, tired we got screwed narrative.

    I had that two years ago here in Denver at Inga's(local Clown Club bar) when some crying clown would not let it go even when the TV announcer detailed that what looked like PI was legal in college. Just kept bitching...

    NEVER EVER have I seen a bar clear out faster after ISMs OT TD. From packed to 10 people in 20 minutes. I would guess that Inga's might have cleared out this past Saturday even faster.

    I don't know how much of this we ran, but the scrape exchange is what defenses come up with to counter that gun option stuff. Basically the DE squeezes, filling the gap the LB would have filled while the LB scrapes and becomes the new contain player. It makes the QB wrong with either decision to pull or give. It also lead to the rise of the RPO, where teams now read that LB and if he scrapes, they throw the slant behind him. It's nearly impossible for a scraping LB to also play the pass well, so defenses have to pick their poison.

    If it's and butts were candy and nuts....I could pull apart the game and find just as many penalties and calls against ISMoo that should have been called. Honestly, if it wasn't for a trick play and two overthrows and one underthrow by Stanley for TD's this game would have been a laugher win for the Hawks.

    Yes I was wondering about that especially within the tackles. That seemed like a weird call but I cant remember how much downfield or in the backfield it was.

    And people say Kirk cant can't manage the clock.

    Of course I'm partially kidding. He has had three clock blunders so far this year alone and a long history of doing it. But possession management is a different story. We had the first and last possessions of the first half and, once Iowa State had the quick score in the third quarter, basically the first and last possessions of the second half.

    I know possession management isn't quite clock management, but Kirk has always been good at it. Bill Parcells was the master of it, and he stole a ton of NFL games that way.

    Having the linebacker scrape over sounds like a logical concept. But in practice, it seems to be a tough task. A speedy quarterback can seemingly beat the LB to the edge almost every time.

    The LB does not have play side responsibilities in a scrape exchange, so he is moving towards keep side at the snap. There is absolutely zero excuse for a scrape LB to get beat to the edge, at least initially. Now, if he is out-athleted by the QB at that point it's a different discussion but this technique (one of several I suppose) was how defenses coped with the zone read play.

    It's simple enough, I understand the scheme. I just don't think it worked for Iowa. Thinking back on the game, Purdy consistently had huge success pulling the ball and keeping it himself.

    That's why I said I wasn't sure how much we were actually using that strategy. AJE did tackle the RB quite a few times on the read (without the ball) and Purdy did have some decent chunk plays when that happened. That tells me we really weren't accounting as much for the QB OR we were perfectly ok with Purdy getting a few yards if it meant getting a hit on him and that it didn't put the ball into the hands of one of their playmakers.
