Cyclones Look to Improve Defensively this Fall

Posted:

It's clear if the Iowa State Cyclones are going to make major strides in 2009-- it will have to make major improvements on the defensive side of the ball.

Last year-- the Cyclone defense gave up more than 40 points a game during Big 12 contests...

 The Cyclones return six starters from that 2008 defense-- 2 each on the defensive line, linebacking corps and the secondary.

Iowa State is relatively small up front-- and new Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads says the Cyclones will have to use its speed and quickness to make plays and force turnovers.
