    Re: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Rhoads happy at ISU

    In terms of money, our $1.1 million goes a LOT farther here in Iowa compared to Pittsburgh. Also Rhoads is near his family. THIS is home.

    Rhoads has the support of ISU fans and plenty of time and a lack of pressure on his job performance. Any pressure comes from Rhoads himself and his goals and expectations from the team. Rhoads also has a pretty good pool of money with which to hire good assistants. I have no idea what Pitt's is.

    And Pitt will ALWAYS be well down the list in comparison to the Steelers, pro sports, and Penn State.

    I really don't see Rhoads leaving. I think he genuinely likes it at ISU. Rhoads has a chance to do something really special here at ISU.

    I sure hope he would be. Like the post above says he is close to his family and grew up here, you'd think he'd be happy.

    Re: Pittsburgh Post-Gazette says Rhoads happy at ISU

    I don't know CPR personally at all so I have no idea if he would leave ISU or not. But if his professional goal it to be the head coach of a team that reaches BCS level bowls on a consistent basis, which school better provides that opportunity?

    I don't know if that is his priority...but the answer might not favor us!

    all they did for me was make me want to move away and never go back (to live). a plan i am currently executing. character? for me they just made me hate the idea of ever living in a place like iowa for another winter. 24 years was enough.

    f the cold and snow is completely useless if there aren't mountains (or at least big hills).

    Amen. It takes some sack to stay in the Midwest. Keeps the ****** bags out. With the exception of Iowa City.

    But seriously, while winter can be annoying, I love the change of seasons. Having the crappiness of winter makes spring, summer, and fall all the more enjoyable.

    You know what would make them even more enjoyable, to bypass worthless *** winter all together.
