    Does Paul Rhoads underemphasize the Iowa game?

    It's almost as if our guys don't care, and they looked just as bad last year. Maybe Iowa is that much better, but this is two years of **** poor pathetic bull **** football against the Hawks. If we play well next week, I'll be convinced Rhoads has mailed it in against Iowa.

    At this point I hope so because I don't want this loss to turn into two.

    I don't know that he under-emphasizes it, but he definitely doesn't pump it up like McCarney did. Perhaps that will lead to better conference success, but that is still yet to be determined.

    Iowa is very good but right now its 70-3 with last year. That is atrocious.

    Re: Does Paul Rhoads underemphasize the Iowa game?

    Rhoads always sez that every game is emphasized the same...in other words you guys had better get ready for more butt whippings from Iowa!!!


    Danny Mac always believed this was the most important game of the year and it showed with the effort that the football team put out....


    This football team mailed it in at 14-0....

    PATHETIC RHOADS PATHETIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: Does Paul Rhoads underemphasize the Iowa game?

    I didn't see much fire in the team today. I was waiting for a glimmer of hope and it really didn't show up until Iowa had their first stringers out...

    Re: Does Paul Rhoads underemphasize the Iowa game?

    If we just sucked week in and week out, it would make sense, but it's like we have a pretty solid team unless we're playing Iowa. Then we fold up shop and quit before the game even starts.

    As a Iowa fan, I can see the difference between Mac and Rhoads in this game. I think ISU will be better for it.

    This will limit our chances to be on TV later this year.

    Re: Does Paul Rhoads underemphasize the Iowa game?

    Dan Dmac understood that to be the program he wanted it to be they had to be able to compete and win against iowa. For pride, recruiting, exposure. He was not going to settle for his teams to get embarrassed by their arch-rival. It's not good. He saw no ceiling in what ISU could do. He knew you couldn't be the best in the Big 12 if your not the best in this state. CPR knows this to.

    Hey, if we end up in a bowl game, I won't care about today at all come season's end.

    But we can't keep looking dead against Iowa every year. Most of us expected a loss, but we didn't expect that pathetic effort.

    This is it - exactly. Great post. We cannot continue to be embarrassed like this by our arch-rival and build a program at ISU. This was awful.

    Maybe it's better, long-term, to treat it no more importantly than the rest of the schedule, but if you're going that route:

    1. ISU needs to get big Big 12 wins to compensate

    2. It's OK to lose the rivalry game, but you could still be competitive. It's happened twice under Rhoads, and yes, it involved good Iowa teams, but ... five-touchdown blowouts? Really?
