  1. I think Tyler is the poster boy for letting all the themes get in the way of playing the game. When we see the greats lace up they always seem to be having fun. I'm afraid Tyler got in his own way. Play with controlled abandon, have fun, enjoy the moment. Tyler took the team on his back too many times, let your playmakers make the plays, simply put the ball in their hands and watch them make TD's.

  2. Totally impressed with his first live interview.

    I can't wait to see all of his schemes  come to fruition on the field. He certainly has all the tools available for a successful season. The most important thing for everyone will be the spring and fall practices to occur so that this still young team can come together and gel.

  3. I'll reserve my excitement for when the rubber meets the road.

    His resume is certainly full of positivity, however, we've experienced this type of hoopla before in our new coordinators and been burned. He certainly will be blessed with, perhaps, the best players he will have ever coached. 

    I wish him all the luck in the world and hope he will surprise and delight me with his skills. In Coach C we trust but verify!

  4. We need a dominant run game to compliment our passing game. Too many times in our shortened 2020 season did we see a one dimensional game where we were all predictable as to what plays were coming.

    A balanced attack running on all cylinders will take us back to the dominating team we once were. Trash the pistol formation and give our running backs the run to daylight opportunities that put fear in to the defenses we play against. 

  5. How do you punish an opposing defensive line with a 178 lb. running back?

    Cristobal has said over and over again that he wants to punish the opposing team. He has proven that he can recruit, however, he has not brought in the Royce Freemen type backs. It is truly a puzzle to me. Is he so wedded to the vaunted pistol attack that he hesitates to replace the running backs coach?

    This remains one of the biggest questions for me!

  6. I wonder if Moorhead's offense has been hampered by poor execution rather than Coach C's interference. We often seem lost on the field of play our rhythm on plays is completely destroyed. One of Kellys ideas of practice was to increase repititions so muscle memory takes over in real competitive play. He was often quoted as saying that he would not stop practices to correct  players mistakes but rather make the corrections on film with them later.


  7. I'm not sure they have a system either but their execution of whatever they are trying to do on the field is horrible. I'm a glass half full kind of guy and am hoping that the experience of playing in this shortened season will pay dividends this spring and fall (God willing) and we will see a better prepared team on game days.

    Remember the old saying that "those who can do, and those that cannot teach". I'm hoping for the former and not the latter going forward.

    My observation of this game is simple and boils down to one question that I have: Why did the Cyclones "Big Guys" seem to be much bigger than our "Big Guy's" ?? Oregon got push up and down the field like a rag doll being run over by a bronco bull. 

    I immediately noticed that too! Our line averages well over 300 lbs. but they looked small against the Cycloned line.

    My takeaway of this game was adjustments, they made them, we did not,
