    Ben Bruns: Ownership

    Good stuff from Ben on why CPR is the right man for the job in Ames. Some insight that you won't read anywhere else.

    I wish CPR was my boss. I'd go through a brick wall for the guy.

    Re: Ben Bruns: Ownership

    I like Coach Rhoads because I think he is an excellent coach and a great person, but most of all because he is someone I feell I can genuinely respect. I hope he is ISU's coach for a long, long time.

    Awesome read. Thanks Ben.

    Re: Ben Bruns: Ownership

    Although I haven't read many of Ben's articles, he seems to impress me more and more with every article.

    On CPR, he is a very likeable guy by not only ISU fans, but other fan bases as well. I can't even count the number of times I have heard by non-ISU fans how much they like and respect CPR. Great guy.

    I'm hoping that this starts to change somewhat over time. Likeable or not, people start to hate the coach that always has his team beating their favorite team. I think CPR could deal with a little bit of success based hatred.

    I have to agree with the comments about Ben's column. Great stuff. You seem to be pretty good at this journalism thing, Brunsie.

    Re: Ben Bruns: Ownership

    I wonder if he likes being called Brunsie.

    I'm sure if he doesn't like it I'm in for a world of hurt.
