    Loved the call

    Going through these threads it bugs me when people act like we would have won if we would have kicked the extra point. We could have gotten beat in the 2nd overtime. I loved the call. Go for the win!

    The BACKUP PUNTER throwing a PASS? Uh, isn't there a pretty good reason why the backup punter isn't the starting quarterback? Or even the fourth-string quarterback? Like, he isn't a very good passer?

    I have read all your smack posts this morning.

    I would really enjoy seeing you have this same conversation with PBR and any of the team members. I'm sure they would enjoy visiting with you personally . . but in this case, I think you simply have "issues."

    Ban hammer coming soon.

    Re: Loved the call

    CPR just garnered a whole new level of respect and admiration from us all. We lost, and although it sucks I felt a level of pride I haven't felt before. I was grinning ear-to-ear. Holy crap! Did we just play to WIN???

    CPR. Those initials are kind of fitting don't you think? He's breathed life back into this program when it was next to being dead. What he's been able to do with these kids is nothing short of incredible.

    I have the biggest man-crush on our entire coaching staff right now.

    PROUD TO BE ONE! GO STATE!!!

    What does really bad beer have to do with this?

    (I agree though. My guess in an NU fan)

    Completly Agree! Just watching coach on the side lines got me excited. Who would not want to come play for this guy!

    Re: Loved the call

    Right call, wrong call, right player, wrong player....who cares?

    With CPR, our Cyclones are in better hands than any coach since Johnny Majors. He made the call not on a hunch, but based on what he saw on film. He made the call early and stuck with it. And rather than throw the kid under the bus who didn't execute up to expectations, he said he would do it again.

    I for one couldn't be prouder of the way our team played. Honor before Victory! They did us all proud yesterday.

    Re: Loved the call

    I also loved the call. It didn't work, but it also had less to do with Nebraska and more to do with us.

    I wasn't at the game, but it looked pretty windy, although you would never know it reading AP stories about the game. To me, the wind stopped that pass. Otherwise, our guy was open.

    And it's refreshing to play for the win and to have a chance to win against a ranked team. Consider our depth compared to Nebraska's--our starting center was gimpy and had left the game, the quarterback was gimpy--even if we make the extra point, we have to go right back out there and do it again in the 2nd overtime.

    Great game, sucks to lose the game, the chance at a title--but a great game and I for one am proud of our team and coach--we are lucky to have them!

    And you joined CycloneFanatic just yesterday so that you could post that? Cute.

    Some good points there. Also, on the overtime touchdown pass-our starting center, Ben Lamaak left the game and my man, Alex Alvarez slid into center without missing a beat and held down the middle of the line while Austen threw the touchdown pass. Way to go Alex!!! You are a winner on the field and a winner in life!!!

    Re: Loved the call

    Loved the call. So happy we played aggressive and put the game in our team's hands with the game on the line. Don't take a chance with what could go wrong in the second OT, finish it right now on this play. Gutsy call, we finally have a coach with some serious balls, and I love it! GO CYCLONES!

    Re: Loved the call

    Rhoads had a winning season in year 1. He is poised to have a shot at a winning season in year 2. A season that has included OU/Texas and countless top ranked teams. He has wins @NU and @Texas. Coached his way to what should have been another win over NU. He has motivated the team after big losses when it looked as if the team was left for dead. There is not another coach that has done that for ISU.

    And there are still armchair jerkoffs questioning him. The man clearly knows how to coach. He has fooled plenty with well-timed fakes. They have been well executed. This one time, another smart fake, the team didn't execute. That's it, nothing more.

    We could go back to the coaching style of playing not to lose. Everyone hated that and complained about it. Now that we have a coach with the style we want - babies still cry. The risk taking won't always pay off - get used to it. But there will also be games in which it will work and propel us to victory (Tech, Texas).

    So far this is about the only time it has not worked for Rhoads all season. IMO, that's a pretty good success rate.

    Re: Loved the call

    I liked the call because it might have been our best odds of winning. As you said, tying it and going into double OT, doesn't guarantee anything. We are at a disadvantage right off the bat on OT because of our kicker vs theirs. With that said, I liked the call.

    Unfortunately, it was a not so great pass, to an open receiver.

    Re: Loved the call

    I loved the call as well. As a matter of fact the thought floated through my head he might try it about 5 seconds before it happened.

    I don't think we win an endurance game that OT's represent against Nebraska. Go for the kill quick.

    Impressive game by the Cyclones. Nobody gave us a chance to go as far as we did.

    I don't believe in moral victories, but I love the fact we're playing competive football, especially on a national stage like yesterday.

    Good luck Nebraska. I have a feeling the road is going to be much tougher for you in the Big 10/12...
