Iowa State game superlatives

Uni Heisman, best player, strange stat, most overlooked play.

Winners: Desmond Roland, slow running back prospects, the FCC, ISU fans (for mock cheering your team on its first first down), offensive line, Glenn Spencer, Wes Lunt (miss me yet), and basketball (everybody’s ready).

Losers: Jeremy Smith, Josh Stewart, Iowa State (1-6!), wind (I hate it), Fox’s announcing crew (yeesh), the quarterback position, Fox’s cameramen (do they not know how fast OSU tries to play?), and the quick-snap rushing play (whyyy?)

Weirdest subplot: Clint Chelf is now averaging 6.0 yards per rush and JW Walsh is averaging 5.1. I do not understand this.

Best player: Gonna go out on a limb here and say this guy.

Doesn’t get enough love: Ryan Simmons — 11 tackles, two tackles for loss, and a sack. And he barely gets mentioned.

Uni Heisman: Desmond Roland — I know it’s goofy but I love the orange t-shirt hanging out from under the shoulder pads (see photo above). It reminds me of Warrick Dunn for some reason.

Non-player uni Heisman: Glenn Spencer in that slick white OSU jacket. I want.

The “wait, does he know less or more than us” tweet of the game:

Quote of the game: “I wouldn’t think that we would change (quarterbacks again).” -Mike Gundy

Strange stat of the game: Justin Gilbert’s pick six was OSU’s first since Shaun Lewis did it in 2011 against…..Iowa State.

Underrated call of the game: Gundy calling timeout at the end of the first quarter to make Iowa State punt into the wind and get s few plays with the wind at OSU’s back. Les Miles would have somehow incited the college football weather gods, skipped the timeout, and created a stiff dew into which his team would have tried to drive in the second quarter.

Most overlooked play: Watch the block Tracy Moore sets here…
