    "Paul Rhodes is a good football coach"

    Fans and TV talking head/sports radio types say this all the time. How do we know this is true? Maybe a better question is "How do we know he is a good HEAD football coach"?

    Can anyone explain to me why this is so widely accepted as a fact?

    A team that won 2 games the previous year under another coach had a winning record the following season?

    If you have to ask, maybe you can find another team and spare the rest of us your less than insightful questions.

    Re: "Paul Rhodes is a good football coach"

    He is a good coach. Even good coaches can't coach teams with no talent. Take Spurrier for example. he was a great coach at Florida. Now he is a decent coach. Did he forget how to coach??? No he does not have the talent that he had.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Re: "Paul Rhodes is a good football coach"

    I know this is way too rational, but let's relax a little bit. The last two weeks have been tough. We'll learn a lot more about this coaching staff after the next couple games... do we rebound, or do we reenact 2008?

    Maybe I should start putting people on my ignore list more often.

    I've only got one on my list but have about 6 more tagged today that are close to earning a starting spot on my ignore list.

    Re: "Paul Rhodes is a good football coach"

    Not to mention he just went head to head with bill Snyder who is considered one of the best coaches ever. He had less talent and almost pulled it off. That is good coahcing.

    Ah yes....PR went from savior to fool overnight. And now the first hint that people are going to want his head if this team wins 3 or 4 games.

    Oh, you mean Paul Rhoads! I don't know who Paul Rhodes is but he must enjoy all this undue recognition for being ISU's head coach.

    Seriously guys, get his damn name right. It's like Iowa fans saying Kirk Fa-rentz.

    Gee it's funny, but people rip on Mac for blowing sunshine all the time, and the first thing that CPR says on the postgame show is "it was a showcase of effort by great Iowa State student-athletes."
