    Inside College Football: COY Paul Rhoads

    Not sure if anyone else posted this already, but I was watching Inside College Football last night (I believe it was on one of the FOX channels) and they were discussing Coach of the Year candidates. Of the 4 guys talking: 1 mentioned Bob Stoops, 1 Mentioned that guy from Clemson, and 2 jumped on the CPR bandwagon. Pretty interesting stuff, not sure if they replay the show or not, but they were very impressed with the here. The one quote was somehting like, "Nobody wins at Iowa State, Dan McCarney won a little and made them relevant, but nobody else wins at Iowa State and Paul Rhoads has...." (describes the Tech and Texas wins last year, Nebby win in '09, and the 3-0 start this season.

    Correction, it was CBS Sports, channel 613 on DirecTV. The show will be on again at 4:00 pm today, but I don't know if it's the same show or a new one.

    Johnny Majors? Earle Bruce? Most of the ***hats on the college football shows don't know dick about Iowa State.

    Re: Inside College Football: COY Paul Rhoads

    Great news for CPR and the Cyclones. Although I think that talk is a little pre-mature. Not that he doesn't deserve it, but as has been mentioned a million times on this board. We could have a great season and it just not show up in the wins column. And unless I missed something in the first 4 weeks of the season, this league is stacked from top to bottom with decent teams. I know the SEC gets all the hype, but I think I'd rather take on Vandy, Ol' Miss, Arkansas and then duke it out with the rest of the league over what we have ahead of us. But that's what makes college football so great, you don't know what's going to happen week to week and if we can get our turnover woes figured out, I don't see any reason why we wouldn't have a shot in any of our games this year.

    How many times do we have to hear "no one wins at Iowa State except....."? We are not a world beater, but we have a decent track record over the last 10-12 years. Not sure what the relevance is of the previous 20?

    Two words, GENE CHIZIK.

    He's the problem. High profile coach, comes here, can't coach for ****, hires all of his drinking buddies to come party with him and they lose their ***. Then Geno takes his talentless *** to Auburn and wins a NC in his second year. His high profile basically put the "No one wins at ISU" back on the map. It's not fair, because I think Auburn is going to realize it wasn't ISU, it was Chizik, but until then, it just brought the legacy home to roost at ISU a bit longer.

    Lol spot on. I think it was actually an act of God that made me watch last night. I changed to the wrong channel and happened to see "Inside College Football"I'd never heard of it but I turned it on and the second topic they talked about was this one.
    Definitely premature with the entire Big 12 (10?9?) left, but it's nice to see ISU getting recognized.

    ESPN's segment on Iowa State will be generous with the smart *** remarks and back-handed compliments. Just watch and learn.

    They don't have a bias against US, they have a bias against anybody not in the top 25. Frankly, I'm stunned we're getting a spot on Gameday, but am glad to eat my words. We need all the press we can get. If we can knock of Tx and get ranked, it will help a ton.

    Yeah, after the whole Chizik thing, the only thing most people think when they hear "Iowa State" is:

    5-19

    CPR has given us plenty of memorable moments over the last 2+ years though, so I have confidence that perception will change eventually.

    I think they meant that CPR is 1 of 2 (other being E. Bruce / 36-32) at ISU who as won more games than lost in the last Century. So I would say they are accurate.

    Well, we can't have it both ways guys. Either the past is relevant or it isn't.

    Regardless, I am just happy that ISU is being mentioned without a phrase like "doomed when the Big 12 folds".


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr
