    72% people responded: Start TILLER (DesMoinesRegister)

    When will these coaches get the clue? The fans want Tiller in. Let him throw the interception, at least we are taking a step forward by Tiller's intrception rather than having to wait and see Arnaud throw interception. I bet the difference will be Tiller would learn from his picks, Arnaud - well he had years, he is still a run first throw later QB and he can give it to the opposing team's hand just as frequently as he gives to his own receivers. Even in the K State game, two of his passes could've easily been picked.

    Anyway, I like what Des Moines register did. They have a poll now where you can vote who you would like to see start.

    I have two lines for CPR:

    1. Build for future.
    2. Build for future now!!!

    We have Utah coming up. Let Tiller play the UNI game and rest Arnaud (forever if you will). We A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E-L-Y need Tiller to be comfortable throwing for the Utah game. That Utah game cannot be won by Arnaud. I repeat: That UTAH game cannot be won by Arnaud's throwing. We need Tiller's contribution!!!

    If all this talk about Tiller doesn't light a fire under AA's ***, then nothing will. AA will either come out and be spot on, or this talk will put too much pressure on him and be absolutely terrible. Sad to say, but I think it will be the latter.

    This. I don't disagree that the QB talent may be sitting on the bench, but when is it a good idea for the coaches to take advice from the fan base? At the beginning of the season Rhoads said Arnaud gave this team the best chance to win. You can build for the future in your NCAA football dynasty on PS3/XBox, I trust Coach Rhoads take control of the real thing.

    Fans may not be smart like CPR or fans may not know what all goes in the locker room or in the genious heads of the coaches.. but fans pay for college football - BIG TIME! UNI game should be a good experimenting game with Tiller. We need to give him ONE ENTIRE GAME. I just DO NOT UNDERSTAND why they put Woody in when ARob is healthy. Why not do the same with the QB? Its clear that they are going after our RB every down. We need an accurate passer. Tiller, to me, looked much better passer than Arnaud. Tiller's one throw to the end zone looked better to me than Arnaud FOOLISH throw to AROB when he was WIDE OPEN for a GAME WINNING TD.

    God have mercy!!!

    AA needs to be the starter...it only makes sense. Taking pressure like this is unfortunately part of being a starting college QB. If he can't take it, he won't be playing. Not sure the Register's motive is good, but it's part of the business.

    Well if thats what the fans want, he doesn't have a choice does he?! The Fans know more and we prove it by complaining on message boards! There shouldn't have had to be a poll on the Register anyway because the coaches should spend there time on here getting coaching tips!

    Who gives a damn what the fans want. I trust the guys who actually break down film everyday to put the right guys in the right position to succeed.

    Iowa State should save the million bucks it is paying Rhoads to coach and let Des Moines Register internet poll voters run its football program. Excellent idea!

    I counted at least 15 yards between ARob and the nearest defender. Just totally over thrown by Arnaud. Im glad to see his *** sit for a bit the dude is too emotion and has become less of a leader. I do not think this is his team anymore.

    And that is why people like you post on message boards and people like Paul Rhodes coach. He's forgotten more about football than you could ever dream of knowing.

    Seriously. The day Rhoads and his staff start listening to internet polls is the day I don't want him coaching here anymore.

    DUDE I trust coach Rhoads too, but he will not succeed being Arnaud lover like this. He absolutely needs to give others the chance. He is giving Arnaud WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY more reps than he deserves. We all know how bad Arnaud is and can be with his throw. From year 1 to year 4, Arnaud makes the SAME mistakes. His throwing technique is off.

    All I am saying is the fan base is saying its Tiller time. CPR needs to listen and respond. If he can give Woody (and rightfully so) some playing time, he can let Tiller play also.

    If you can show me 6 interceptions in a game for Tiller, than I will go back to Arnaud or whoever, but at least let's see Tiller play.
