    Re: Polls

    I take back some of the things I have said over the years I have said about Hlas being a hawk homer who will never say anything good about ISU. Emphasis on the word some.

    Re: Polls

    This Cyclone fan was thinking that our team has no business in the top 25. Three wins by the skin of our teeth doesn't exactly scream top 25 to me. But Hlas makes a pretty good case.

    Re: Polls

    as much as I personally don't think polls are a good thing at this juncture of the season, it does speak to the job that Rhoads has done in his short tenure, from being COMPLETELY irrelevant to the periphery of the conversation and I don't think he is anywhere close to done yet. Watching the d'bag on the Pitt sideline and many, many others in "Bigger" Jobs, enjoy it while it lasts. Rhoads is big time and if the ouside world doesn't know it yet, they will soon- for this reason I don't care if we get ranked for a long time. Before you say how he is home, family, Loves ISU, etc...I like to think that, and yes its possible, but no need to post it cause I doubt many on here actually know, just like I don't know.

    Re: Polls

    The Texas game is huge. I see this as a winnable game and if we can get to 4-0 that would be unreal. Jantz does need to step up the play the whole game and we have to lower our penalties.

    Re: Polls
