Why was our end chasing the running back towards the opposite side of the field, isn't he supposed to stay home and take the QB?

Tracy L. Cauley

You guys on this board suck. Get hired as a division one head coach and then I will listen to you. Let things play out. They will do what they need to do at the end of the year. Support the man he is our coach.


Hey this was pretty fun I've never posted during the game. Thanks for inviting us over to your house Jesse. I'm outtie watching OU ATM now. Nice try 'Hawks we'll find you guys a coach soon.

Jeff Hargate

Under 2 min and we need a stop knowing ISU is just going to run the ball and we drop 4 into coverage...Gill should use some of that $2MM/year and buy NCAA 2011 to figure out how to coach.

Jmonley in reply to James McGuire

Better every day.


pretty rough year - I was hoping we would get a win today.

Jhawkalumjb in reply to Hihawk



any1 but gill. how about a young stud from a great 1aa program kinda like how tressel was hired?

Kgphoto in reply to Baldjedi

I pick Gill. 4 years no less.


Jim Haugba would not have done that.

Baldjedi in reply to Kgphoto

What is hilarious is you haven't picked anyone, but you complain about our opinions

Seth Nesmith

Gill is gone after the season. The question now is he going to get fired before the missouri game.

Alabamastreet in reply to 1_jaydoc_1

Right on


Well we showed some real improment today out there. I think we can build on this going forward. You just gotta beleive. I do. I'm really proud of the adjustments we made at the half. We looked great today. They are a really good team. Hats off to ISU. That's coach Gills post game BS. Translated; the team and coaches suck! Can't wait to hand out snicker bars on Sunday! Oh and can anyone help me with this wheelbarrow full of money!


i've never played organized football, but if i were coaching could we be any worse?

Lawkan in reply to James McGuire



Watching this OU game, there are a lot of Assitant coaches on that Sooner sideline that would be better/more affordable than Gill.

What are our options?

Kgphoto in reply to Baldjedi

There goes Leach again. Hilarious.


Seriously if nobody in the press conference asks why the decision to punt the ball away was made they lose the right to call themselves journalists. Don't ask the easy questions this time.


Can't even beat a team thats only offense is the scramble.

James McGuire

I know everyone on here wants Gill gone, but realistically, what are the chances of that happening after this season?

Baldjedi in reply to Kgphoto

I say Leach, but maybe Stoops from FSU

Seth Nesmith

why go for it on the 4 yard line but not the 1 yard line!? horrible coaching!

Alabamastreet in reply to Hailtoku

Well, anything would be an improvement. I think Dirk Wedd and Bob Lisher would be good improvement as co-head coaches


fire turner gill


Feel bad for the players. The coaching staff on the other hand...

Kgphoto in reply to Ahpersecoachingexperience

Got a coach picked out yet?


No offense after halftime again too.


It wasn't a horrible game. It was a good game that was lost for us by a few bone-headed coaching moves


Hey Buffalo, you can have your old head coach back


ljw staff. . .first question. . .why in the mother loving hell did you punt the ball and expect the defense to hold

Kenneth Terry

What a horrible game.LMAO


A winable game that got away. At least it was competive for a change.

Alabamastreet in reply to 1_jaydoc_1

Agree with you doc, pretty bad

1_jaydoc_1 in reply to Seth Nesmith

They would likely win. Thats a good program.


Lets kick a field goal on the goal line. Genius!

Seth Nesmith

Butler county community college would play a good game against KU

741hawk in reply to Jesse Newell

Further evidence that TG does not understand even the basics of this game.

Hailtoku in reply to Alabamastreet

A coach like ISU's or a coach period?


ISU showed they're only a one dimensional team. I doubt they'll win another game this year.


3 point loss on the road isn't awful.


bad teams find a way to lose


I like ISU's coach. We need one of those.


That punt was the WORST call this staff has made all year and that is saying something....


Good bye Gill


Can not win when we only hang 10 on the board.

Ahpersecoachingexperience in reply to Marcus Balzer

ah man, i was just going to say that. lol


*sigh. we better beat kensucky or i'm going to be in for a hell of a time around here.

Brian Haase

We list this game on coaching. Get lost gill and please dont say we improved, the players might have, you still suck

Kansas 10
Iowa State 13

Jesse Newell

Two kneeldowns close out the victory.

Seth Nesmith

Fire gill fire gill


I cannot believe we punted.


Scares me to death to think that Zenger will not FIRE the Gillhawk.


So, this time when we lose is Gill going to blame the players or his coaching?

Hailtoku in reply to Nebraskajayhawk

or the brains to know what the situation is. Gill has neither.

Marcus Balzer in reply to Ahpersecoachingexperience

Haha now we have 8 in the box.

RXDOC in reply to Seth Nesmith

I donno about yards but over 50 points for sure!


game over. This is pathetic. Fire the whole coaching staff. I'm done. Lets go CHIEFS and KU BASKETBALL!


gill not a coach and never was one.


Baylor will score a lot. Good game 'Hawks. Glad you didn't quit. Goodbye turner.


You have to have the guts to take chances...we didn't.


Even the announcers expected us to go for it on 4th...


why do we not have 8 in the box?


Ridiculous. Everyone and their mom knows what ISU is going to run.


Mr. Zenger,

Please walk onto the field, grab Gill by the arm escort him off the field.


Gill should be gone NOW!!!!


great coaching

Jesse Newell

Ouch. Another long run. Should be victory formation time.


The morons dont even have 8 men in the box


Damn Woodpecker!


How many ways does gill have to show people that he is not a coach.


Dude, they know where it's going. Bring everyone up to the line...

Seth Nesmith in reply to Hihawk

Baylor over/under 550 total yards offense?


All out blitz please...


Woody Woodpecker? He looks like it in that ugly red uni

RXDOC in reply to Jesse Newell

Just another reason he can't coach at this level! He can't even manage the dang clock!


There went our best chance of winning another game.


i wonder what the total number of offensive players we have that we've converted to defense? answer: what defense?


We punted the ball because we were on their 20, its not rocket science. If we don't punt it, they get thee which makes it a 6 point game and then we have no choice but to get a td. Our defense has done well all game, why not.

Hihawk in reply to Alabamastreet

Thats about all you can say.


Missed FGs were killers

Jesse Newell

Bad timeout there by Gill. The clock was going to stop already after the first down. KU would have saved more time after the first-down play.


and another L


Somebody needs to tell KU ISU is running clock out,


It was a good effort.

Seth Nesmith in reply to Chuckberry32

against a 1-5 conference team


And that's game.



Great pic of the KU fan


on the bright side, at least we were in this game...


We're done

Cora Smith

Webb is the epitome of what is wrong with this team. Poor decision making by a non athlete.

Becca Farish

wow worst coaching call of all time hey here is a good idea punt the ball with under 3 minutes left so the worst defense in the country can hold a offense to 3 and out good job gill do us all a favor and get FIRED

RXDOC in reply to Nebraskajayhawk

Yeah Webb is poor at best!


The Gillhawk is still gonna say, "We showed real progress today. I hope the fans are happy now. We may never compete with OU, OSU, UT, TTECH, MU, or KSU, but by god we will compete with ISU every year."

Runningbeakers84 in reply to Oklahawk58

Yes, Woody just got more yards on that run than we did in 3 attempts last position.
