    Rhoads contract extension?

    Is it to early to give Rhoads a contract extension? In the past three years he has beat Nebraska in Lincoln, Texas in Austin and now Iowa. He has re-energized the ISU fan base and it seems he truely wants to remain in Ames.

    So, lets lock him up for the long term and maintain some consistency!!!!!

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    It is ABSOLUTELY CRITICAL that we get the fan support in the form of NCC donations and ticket sales to keep paying this guy. The worst thing we could do now as a fan base is get cheap and have Paul move on in a few years because of salary, either for him or his assistants.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    Deserves it no doubt. But until we know what conference we will be in can we make a large financial commitment? He probably wants to see where we land before signing as well

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    Give him an extension, give him a raise, and give his assitants a raise. If we want to keep building, we need continuity in the coaching staff. Keeping his coaching staff around is just as important as anything.

    Let's find out what conference we're going to be in first. Then give him an extension.

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    If the conference is stable and we have a good season, give CPR and coaches a raise.

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    if the B12 stays in some form, and the TV money is intact, we can pay him whatever we need to in order to keep him.

    Re: Rhoads contract extension?

    In my heart I want to see Rhoads locked up for a long time.

    In my head I would like to see him put together more than just a 7-win season, even though he's had a lot of program-changing wins. If he somehow puts together an 8-win season this year (especially since we play the second hardest schedule in the nation), lock him up indefinitely.


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.
