Patience has paid off for Iowa State running back Michael Wagner who will draw the start in Saturday’s game against Ohio. The senior has spent much of his career as a second or third team running back but led the Cyclones with 87 yards in their season opening win over U-N-I. Wagner says he played alright, but saw on the film that he missed some blocks and says he can do better this week.Wagner was ready to play despite losing out to freshman Stevie Hicks for the starting job in the preseason. He says it was rought to take, but he says as long as the team is doing well, he’s happy.As a senior Wagner has assumed a leadership role and during preseason practice ephasized the need for a total team effort. He says this year’s team isn’t depending on one person and he says they need to keep it that way to win.
