Quotes of the Week

Senior Offensive Lineman Connor Galvin

"We know it's going to be loud, we know it's going to be rowdy. We know it's going to be one of those games where it's going to be down to the last play. That's just how Iowa State is, a lot of respect for them. So, it's just how we practice vs. how they practice."

Sophomore Linebacker Brooks Miller

"It's just so early. We're going to become so much better. Like in December, we're going to look back now and be like, wow, how were we running it that way, and now we're running it like this." 

Head Coach Dave Aranda

"I just feel that, as far as the view of who we want to be and consistently look like, I'd say Iowa State, is that in a lot of ways. They don't beat themselves, they are efficient with all their movements, and kind of what they do." 


Analysis of the Week

SicEm365 Analyst Sam Bradshaw

You have to take away Iowa State’s running game and Xavier Hutchinson. I think Baylor can rely on their front five to limit the run effectively as they’ve done to virtually everyone over the last year. This should get some additional help on wherever Hutchinson is. Additionally, Dekkers hasn’t seen anyone good blitz him with much regularity so there is certainly a place in the game plan for creepers and simulated pressures to get after the kid and make the new guy prove he won’t cough up the ball. He lost a ton of accuracy when Ohio got pressure on him so he may not handle pressure all that well yet.

However, my bigger takeaway is BU is going to have to do better not busting assignments. Last year Iowa State had several wide-open passes to the Tight Ends and Running Backs that Baylor simply didn’t have anyone covering.

Man….hope we can hold on to this 10 point cushion


Well…I have some news…


That 3rd and 1 call by Grimes ended those hopes.


That play was blown up when the RB completely whiffed on the guy who sacked Shapen. Not saying it was the right call, but we won't know how it would have turned out if guys miss assignments.

Yup just a dog crap call…. Play action with 1 route being ran.

I'm not complaining about our defense..who on here thought we would hold them to 7 for a half?..that was a terrible offense possession from a play call standpoint when we could have put the hammer..or at least burn clock so they don't score.


Yep….that 3 and out was a real missed opportunity to really take control

Briles would've scored before half.

All in all, not a bad overall half. We have a lead. Let's just hold that spread in 2nd half and get out with a win.

Penalties

BU 1 for 10
ISU 4 for 48

This has been our cleanest half of penalties so far this year.

Feel like we need to Qualen more carries in 2nd half and generally.

We're averaging 2.9 yards a carry and our longest run is 9 yards.

Our run game will have to step up for us to clinch the win.

This is true, but you're telling me you don't think he would have gotten that whole 2 feet we needed to move the chains? The 2 backs we run are like 175 pounds. We need a back who can fish out punishment and wear ISU down.

He had the best yards per carry of any of our backs against BYU.

I can't understand him only getting one touch last week and one so far today.

Seems like something must be up.

It was predicted in the preseason and after 3 1/2 games it's readily apparent, our winning and losing each week will basically come down to our run game and secondary coverage.

This is the weakest group of backs we've had in 15 years. I'm not sure any of them are the type you can count on for positive yardage when you most need it.

D line has to dominate the second half. Player and Ika haven't done much. Both need to eat this half because when he has time Dekkers is going to shred this Swiss cheese secondary. Gotta speed him up
IowaBear

That's an indication of the o line imo. A truly elite o line can make any back look good. I feel confident Q Jones would have gotten the 1 yard needed. If you're going to throw there you better have more then 1 guy running a route

This defense has to find a way to force some turnovers.

The secondary is clearly the weak spot on this team.

And after showing as the better team in the 1st half, I do not like at all the ultra-conservative coaching approach at the end of 1st half after giving up an easy Cyclone TD. With all 3 TO's......Arranda just let plenty of clock run out and did not even try to see if they could make it down the field for a potential half-ending long field goal and momentum. And knowing that Cyclones get the ball to start the second half! Too ultra-passive coaching in an hostile away game environment!! As for me, that's a major coaching fail in this game that I hope does not come back to haunt the Bears with an L.
