Jacardia Wright is a stud and is going to become an even bigger stud. He reminds me of a Bryce Brown (potentially). He has an extra gear that Barnes didn't have, yet Jacardia has the size and strength to take on LBers and flat out "Truck" a safety. He's only going to get bigger, stronger, and faster. Between him and Irving, we have 2 really good RBs. They are like Brown and Gilbert, only will be better than both.
I hope Jacardia Wright has a lot better career at K-State than Bryce Harper did. Heck, he already has IMO. I hope he's willing to block, unlike Harper.
*Brown* Lol,. but I followed what you were saying

like the opening kickoff to josh youngblood. :lol:
so I'm sitting there watching this thing. the announcer is really hyping up josh. yap-yap-yap. start to wonder 'how cool would it be if...'

and then, 13 seconds later and 93 yards... OMG!

:rofl:

could NOT have written a movie script any better.
The kid has 3 KO returns for TDs in the 3 of the last 4 games, and he's a true freshman. It was also against opposing teams that have very good athletes with SPEED, and he ran away from them. He's got similar skills to Tyler Lockett. I just can't believe people are still kicking the ball to him. When he refines his techniques as a WR, he will be equally as dangerous at WR. He just needs to do a little more work on going into and out of his breaks in the route running. Kid is a stud for sure.

Shoot, my bad Tbone. I got distracted with a phone call in the middle of posting and had a brain cramp when I got back to it.

Jacardia is going to be a force for years to come. Absolute power with decent lateral movement. I like how he gets low to take on would-be tacklers. That’s where Alex Barnes really struggled.

I'll be a little bit of a contrarian. I thought the o-line played well but had a chance to be great. It seemed as though the backs were running harder and Wright was a big factor. Maybe my eyes were frozen over though.
I didn't see anything spectacularly different schematically/. I just saw a motivated group of men playing hard and physical - more so than their opponent, very similar to the way they did against OU and KU - but not the way they did against WVU. Outside of the ISU running back Hall (who is a stud), it looked like the rest of ISU didn't want to be out there in the cold weather playing football (Purdy sliding instead of going for the 1st down mark, OL not blocking well, etc). ISU just played like they didn't care, and we played like we did. KSU owned the line of scrimmage the whole game on both sides. Overall, these are two very evenly matched teams in terms of talent. So it really just came down to effort, or in ISU's case lack of.
Said the same to the guy sitting next to me. Couldn't believe they didn't really bring it. Not negating our defense's efforts which for sure played a big part.

My absolute favorite quote from an ISU player was after the 2017 game which they were supposed to win:

"I Hate those guys."

There is a sense of wholesome completeness when you know there is an entire team that hates your team for kicking their AZZ constantly.

if kicking azz is winning by a TD or less 10 out of 11 times, and coming back from 28 point deficits, then yeah, I guess you could say it that way.

the games have been razor thin in terms of margin of error. that KSU has come out on top so many times is phenomenal. I'd get a little angry thinking about how close we were all those times and failing to 'crest the mountain'.

as fans we've been fortunate to see, and not at all recognizing enough of, the sheer will up and down the line, man to man.` not flashy. not just 'cause we 'out-recruited' ISU position by position. teamwork. team will.

and we're right back to '...the most stubborn sons of ******* in the Big 12...'

dressed out in the best uniforms in football, college or pro. EVER

you know, i think isu chose to short kick the opening kickoff to pin k-state back because there was a howling wind behind the kicker. he could easily have sent that deep into the end zone. isu's special teams aren't.

wright, now to me he's like the wabash cannonball comin' around the bend. on that 4th quarter 30-yard run, he was absolutely smokin', directly at me, around the corner. i wouldn't want to be a corner or safety looking at the train in full steam. and both he and youngblood will be 10-15 pounds bigger next fall.
