    Q&A with Paul Rhoads

    From a few weeks ago, post-Spring Game.

    Q&A with Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads

    A really interesting (to me) bit here from Rhoads regarding the WR's:

    We went into spring looking for six guys who we were confident in playing. I think we have our two-deep in guys right now. Youíve got returning players Josh Lenz, Darius Reynolds and Darius Darks. And then youíve got some new blood in Jarvis West, Aaron Horne and Albert Gary. Thatís not to say that Chris Young, Keith Blanton and Donnie Jennert couldnít make plays for us. But I think the first six are the guys that have established themselves in our two-deep right now.

    This story is from the same writer at Fox Sports Southwest (Brian Smith) that wrote a really nice "Spring football questions" article before the Spring Game.

    Spring football questions: Iowa State

    He seems like a really good writer; as in-depth on ISU as I've seen from a non-local writer (and better than most of them, honestly). Writers like this are hard to find, and I've bookmarked him (no, I don't know him). Now, his haircut in his picture is another story...

    It's nice to see guys like Smith and CW bring some quality "new blood" to Big 12 coverage.

    Thanks for posting, good read. And you're right, I've been pretty impressed with Brian Smith's research and articles for Fox Sports. Doing a good job so far. But man, that haircut...

    Re: Q&A with Paul Rhoads

    In the article CPR did say that they came out with no major injuries, I would call Knotts injury major... But we should have him back, hows he doing by the way?


    I'm not trying to be difficult, it comes naturally....

    I like Gary, but I would switch him out with Jennhert unless we are talking slot receiver.

    Should be back in about 4-6 weeks. Can lift and condition without using his right arm.
