  09/13/20 - QB Brock PurdySr/2022, Iowa State

  Overrated? Well, you can certainly say that for now, if you want. Iowa State, ranked 25th for now but not for long, played poorly from start to finish during Saturday's 31-14 loss against Louisiana at Jack Trice Stadium. Quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't good. The offensive line was worse. The Cyclones' defense was the best unit on the field, but even that wasn't exactly what anyone would call solid. And those special teams? Insert a crazy, head-shaking emoji here. That aspect of the team has been something else for a while. And on Saturday, before family, cheerleaders and the band inside the stadium - it lived up to that unfortunate reputation. In the first half, it was Louisiana's Chris Smith outrunning everyone during a 95-yard kickoff return for a touchdown to die the game. In the second, it was Eric Garror doing it on an 83-yard punt return into the end zone to give the Ragin' Cajuns a two-score game. One long return is unacceptable on its own. But two in the same game just about cements an 0-1 record.

How bad was this one, special teams aside? Purdy entered the game having thrown 70 passes in a row without an interception, but that streak ended. He overthrew receivers. Receivers dropped passes. I can only recall once when he went deep, when he overthrew Landen Akers around the Louisiana 20-yard line in the third quarter. That's not usually Purdy, but on this occasion, it was. And that topping-off-the-tank touchdown by Louisiana with 10 seconds left? A fitting end to a horrible Iowa State football afternoon. - Des Moines Register
