This week, we’re combining the powers that be, as Levi, Matthias, Cole, and Marchie bring you a two part, in-depth season preview podcast for the 2019 Iowa State football season. Up first is the offense where we talk about one of the most anticipated offenses in school history. We broke the podcast down by position, and gave our thoughts on a myriad of questions, including:

What does Brock Purdy’s potential look like, and where can he take the team? Is 2019 “make-or-break” for Re-Al Mitchell?

Which running back will end up leading the team in carries and receptions? Does it matter? Breece Hall is receiving rave reviews in camp, but will he get the start against UNI?

Tarique Milton and Deshaunte Jones both have starting spots locked down at receiver, but who will line up with them on the outside? What does receiver production look like when the group doesn’t have an “alpha” to rely on?”

Can the tight ends finally step up and be the true threat we’ve been talking about them being for the last few years? Who takes the lead role?

The Cyclones haven’t had a consistent offensive line for years, but 2019 does show some promise. Can the current offensive line configuration of Good-Jones, Olsen, Newell, Knipfel, and Meeker become a “good” unit capable of creating space in the running game, or will we need to see new blood? Does the line set the floor or the ceiling for the Cyclone offense in 2019?
