    Re: Buyouts: Rhoads due $5.1 mil

    If you can guarantee rather than speculate that the team will be better, that it will win six games and head to a bowl game, that might suffice for Rhoads-haters and Rhoads-doubters (two different...

    Re: Buyouts: Rhoads due $5.1 mil

    And the counterpoint is likely that several thousands of "Fire Rhoads" people will not be in the stands next fall to witness CPR on the sidelines. But, maybe that's not an important consideration in...
  3. Re: Ninety Percenters will have major impact . . .

    In our case, the decision to forgo purchasing 2015 season tickets isn't to prove a point. We are pretty judicious about how we spend money; we'll spend if we see the value of a purchase. We are...
  4. Re: Ninety Percenters will have major impact . . .

    ISU has to release CPR to renew hope in a faction of its fan base. The question seems to be, how small or how large is that faction. Is the faction large enough to require JP to act?

    (A...
  5. Ninety Percenters will have major impact . . .

    on coaching future of CPR, imho.

    How large, percentage-wise, do you think is the group of current season-ticket holders who will buy regardless of who the coach happens to be in 2015?

    I'm a 90...

    Re: CPR - this is a sad day because . . .

    Re: Who's on the list?

    There's a lot of attractive here. Facilities, and a fan base eager to support the team and coaches. Money, it's a Big 12 job. I think JP is a huge strength, a guy who knows the business. Yeah, yeah,...

    NDSU's head man, maybe?

    Re: CPR - this is a sad day because . . .

    And, there are intangible costs (I'm guessing) to either keeping or releasing CPR. If there are invisible costs, I can't identify them clearly and, thus, can't measure them, either. Fan morale is one...

    Re: CPR - this is a sad day because . . .

    OTOH, can we afford another season like this one? I don't know the answer to that question.

    Re: CPR - this is a sad day because . . .

    You could be right, but, maybe not. The cost of keeping CPR might be greater than starting anew.

    CPR - this is a sad day because . . .

    if we lose to KU, there's a looming chance we lose out the rest of the way. If we go winless in conference (and how can we avoid thinking about the consequences?), CPR cannot stay. Can he?

    Sports are fun and sports elevate our moods, but nothing is more important than an individual's character (I know, because I don't have one! So I can recognize high character when I see it.)

    I'm a basic fan, I have a general understanding of the game and decades of observation under my belt. But, I'm confused. I don't understand the disease infecting the Iowa State football program.

    Poll: Re: Would you fire Paul Rhoads?

    Is NDSU still top ranked, or has it faltered? I don't have a clue how the Bison have done since leaving Ames. I'll look it up right now. Let's see . . . 9-0 heading into Saturday's game at UNI....

    Poll: Re: Would you fire Paul Rhoads?

    CPR is a proud, passionate, honest man, most of us believe (I think). What better personality type has a chance to sell ISU to prospective players? Football success hangs on recruiting ability, which...

    Poll: Re: Would you fire Paul Rhoads?

    I recall thinking how impressive NDSU's Chris Klie???? was in his debut as a head coach last August. Only 10 starters back, a new QB, all new assistants, and the Bison came out of the gate and beat...

    There is no better beer (although, if someone twists my arm, I'd be willing to try some of the elixirs mentioned earlier in this thread. ;-)
