    Rhoads on 810 in Kansas City this morning - summary

    Here's a quick summary:

    -Facilities and budget behind other schools in B12 make recruiting difficult
    -Wants to build offensive line similar to Ok State
    -Offensive line most difficult position to recruit
    -MU literally uses every inch of the field... toughest spread offense to defend in country
    -MU spread offense mother of all spread offenses
    -Arnaud still watching film and helping Tiller
    -Tiller has better arm, more velocity, better runner, and more physically gifted than Arnaud
    -Arnaud has incredible grasp of offense... Tiller still learning (that's Arnaud's primary advantage over Tiller)
    -11 BCS teams on schedule in 2011
    -Thinks we'll have one of toughest if not toughest schedule in 2011
    -Wants two non BCS schools on schedule in future
    -Iowa series in serious danger of being cancelled going forward
    -Thinks B12 will expand to 12 teams
    -Still texts D Mac
    -Prefers BCS format over playoff

    Frustrated with the Big 12? Where do you see that?


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    He didn't say anything negative directly. I could sense the schedule has taken a toll on him and we're facing another brutal one next year. I think the Iowa series is in real danger of being cancelled. He knows he's working with less money and fewer toys. He said it's a challenge. He did say ISU fans were great.

    810 guys going on and on about how good a coach Rhoads is. He sounded great. They think MU will have all they can handle and are kind of expecting an ISU win.

    Good. We'll have 9 BCS games as it is with our big 12 schedule. At least half the media will try to make the Nebraska-Iowa game the bigger game anyways (you can already see it). Better to get 3 near-guaranteed wins in the nonconference and (like most of the rest of the big 12 does, putting us on a more level playing field with them) and have the most chance of consistently going to bowls, and above that, having a better w-l record to attain better bowls when possible.

    Keep in mind, if we had the nonconference schedule most of our big 12 peers do this year, only playing 8 or 9 bcs teams on the schedule, we'd have 6 or 7 wins already, and be playing for win 7 or 8 this weekend.

    I'm constantly hearing how CPR wants better facilities. I think whether or not he gets the facilities he wants will have a bigger impact on keeping him as our coach than will his future salary.


    ...And the home of the CHIEFS!!!

    I love the Iowa game, but it really puts us at a disadvantage on scheduling. I agree with you on this. Every other year might be an option. And we must have an easier non conf schedule to compete for bowl games.

    CPR is right. Hopefully we can completely redo and totally expant the Jacobson building. That building hasnt changed much in the last 10 years.

    Totally agree about the facilities vs contract for keeping him. We need a massive overhaul/upgrade in football facilities. (minus the IPF)

    Re: Rhoads on 810 in Kansas City this morning - summary

    Seems to me that this is the first mention of both the ending of the ISU/iowa game and the expansion of the Big 12. I wonder if this is a little bit of a trial balloon on the ISU side as far as the rivalry game. I'm all for it if that means more/better bowls. As far as conference expansion, the party line has been "no way" since June. Now our HC comes out and says he thinks it will go back to 12? Interesting. I mean, he's not just some guy off the street shooting his opinion out there, he has to have a little inside info.

    Also, is it just me or is CPR becoming increasingly more vocal about budget and facilities? We NEED to get that football facility (attached to the Bergstrom IPF) moving ahead. That new Big 12 money can't come soon enough.

    Is there a definitive upgrade plan that hits CPR's concern areas? Not sure what specific areas of concern he has.

    Also, concerning Iowa. Seems like an "every other year" series may work. That way, over the course of most college student's tenure, they would be able to participate in one of the games. I guess you could go every 4 years too. THe main point is that there are ways to keep the rivalry, but simply not every year.

    Every other year could be a good compromise. @Ames, Off, @Iowa City, Off.

    CPR wants to win, and he is honest. I Think he knows what he is talking about, and I am sure Jamie is listening and doing his best. Hopefully, we can upgrade facilities, then wins and recruiting.
