ISU – UNLV Post Game Thoughts

Posted by isuisu on September 12, 2006

Iowa State dominated the game through three quarters but couldn’t finish off UNLV and let them back in the game .  I think I see a pattern forming, how about you?

Over these last few years we have really been spoiled by the discipline of McCarney’s teams.  Iowa State was only penalized 6 times for 55 yards but it seemed like much, much more.  It is also rare to see Mac’s teams put two fumbles on the ground, luckily ISU recovered both of them.

Speaking of being spoiled.  How many of you thought that Bret Meyer didn’t play his best game last Saturday?  Meyer completed 14-21 passes (67%) for 203 yards and 1 interception and we all thought he had below average game.

Weird Stat of the Week:  Todd Blythe tackles 1, Todd Blythe receptions 0

Here are the players that stood out on Saturday:

Stevie Hicks (23 carries – 109 yards, 1 TD)
Walter Nickel (3 catches – 50 yards)
Ryan Baum (32 yard punt return)
Alvin Bowen (13 tackles)
Jon Banks ( 12 tackles) – much improved from week 1
Rashawn Parker (7 tackles, 2.5 TFL and 1 sack) – Mac said he graded out at 91%
