    His dedication to the plan and his confidence in his staff and team is what will make ISU successful in the coming years. That is how you build a program and that is how you get everyone to buy into it.

    He shouldn't budge. It was a good call that just wasn't executed properly.

    Agree 100%. As a coach, all you can do is put your team in the best possible position to be successful. He did that. The fact that the play didn't work doesn't mean it was a bad call. It was there and if executed, we win. Plain and simple. It was the right call and PR owes no one an apology.

    Apparently people have been making too much sense because I have to wait a day to give out any more rep.

    It was one of those plays that if it works, it is the greatest play of all time. If it fails people gripe that they should have played it safe.
    I liked the call.

    I loved the call and because CPR believes in his players, I wouldn't be surprised that we see this play again before the year is out. Just to prove to naysayers that Kuehl can make that pass.

    Agreed. He SHOULD stand behind the call because it absolutely was the right call, a brilliant call in fact. You pull that play out when they're least expecting it, and they were NOT expecting it. I love that he had already determined before the OT that he was gonna go with it, and he stood by it. A better pass and the rest would've been history. I personally would not want to rely on our kicking game in OT especially with our history of game winning/tying kicks.

    I don't necessarily agree with the call, but I agree with CPR being a real man for making it. Even more so for standing by his call and his guys when things didn't go well. If he'd have put the fault on the players for messing up, like other coaches I could name, that would be another story. Win or lose, ya gotta love that guy's style.

    It came close to working. If the throw had been lofted higher Colin would have caught it or been interfered with.

    Re: Blog: Rhoads doesn't budge on fake PAT call

    He's an idiot for making that call. Nebraska didn't have an effective QB back there. Their D wasn't going to stop us again. We score, and just sell out on the wildcat run. Instead of hoping for a one point win, we should have been walking out of their with a seven point smug face.
