ISUr had plenty of defense and a run game .. what we needed was a short-intermediate pass game to take pressure off run game against best defenses in MVFC. The other issue we had was 1 horrible quarter in each of our losses .. combination of bad plays and bad luck, perfect storm .. all occuring in 1st half. No answer for latter problem, other than limit bonehead plays .. and learn how to stop the bleeding sooner !!!

Answer is always ... it depends on what you got and who you play, then of course how well you execute.
