    Video: Rhoads addresses Gridiron Club

    Here's another powerful speech by Paul Rhoads. Just another reason to join the Gridiron Club. I posted this video to give you all a taste of the type of events this club that helps Cyclone football has. I won't always post speeches as they should stay exclusive to members, but this club needs to have 1000 members by kickoff 2011.

    Anybody doubt that CPR isn't "all in" ? Exciting times are here and so glad he's leading us. Thanks for posting that inspirational clip, Chris, I'm in the gridiron club but couldn't make it Saturday.

    I like his simplicity. He understands who we are an where we are. Let's pray for a better W/L ratio this year and hope he can keep building this program.

    Good to see almost the whole class has already qualified and that the 3 question marks are on track to qualify.

    Does anyone know who those players are?

    That man is an inspirational coach! I'm feeling more motivated just from hearing that.

    That's really the part that makes the whole speech.

    It was good solid stuff before, but that's the part that mattered.

    Re: Video: Rhoads addresses Gridiron Club

    You know, often I try and not let myself get caught up in how much passion Rhoads has for ISU. I say to myself, "Self, every coach at a less successful BCS school comes in like this selling hope and and making promises that often don't happen." Then I sit back and look and that's not true. I haven't seen a coach at a school like ISU really show that he cared this much. I really am starting to believe we are going to see some really special things.

    I love the ISU passion that guy puts out! Love to get my hands on one of the H.O.G. t-shirts too.


    Never argue with an idiot. They will bring you down to their level and then beat you with experience.
