    I like the future of this football program and this footall team.

    We will continue to improve as a football program and team. We will take a couple of steps forward and a step backward, but continue in the right direction. Our talent level, fan base, W-L record, and competiveness will only get better. This is still a work in progress.

    I am proud to have Paul Rhoads as a coach and am a proud supportor of ISU Football.

    Go State!

    I agree! Not even half way through the 3rd season of CPR and we are already down in the dumps about not beating UT two seasons in a row. We are 3-1. We were a few votes short of the top 25. All the while the players who I believe will really help this program turn the corner are still waiting in the wings. ISU fans are expecting big things...that's good. Last night sucked..mainly because I still think we can beat that team. But the future is very bright.

    A lot of room for improvement and I think we will continue to see improvement. Go Cyclones!

    I can't wait to be close enough (out of Texas) to watch the program in JTS. Road games are nice to see the team in person but being with 50K+ Cyclones would be better. Many bright days are ahead.

    CPR should be fired. He obviously forgot how to coach during the bye week and thinks turnovers and penalties are unimportant to win football games.

    In all seriousness, I think there is actually a big positive to take out of yesterday's game. We lost because of self-inflicted wounds, not because of a major talent discrepancy unlike in the past. Recruiting and developing talent is the toughest thing to do for any program, and it appears CPR is doing a very good job of this considering we've played Texas two years in a row and you can only see at most a minor talent difference between the two teams.

    Great post, I agree.

    Now let's just distract ourselves with Big 12 conference expansion talk until our next win bathes us in more glory.

    when ever we think the sky is falling they always bounce back. Remember getting blown out by Texas and Utah? what happened CPR went down and took the longhorns down. things well be fine.

    With Chiz we could only dream about being in the position to beat Texas back to back. Last night we had that opportunity, because of CPR and what his staff is building. I am proud of our boys! Keep grinding!

    Re: I like the future of this football program and this footall team.

    Hmmmmmmmmmmm...

    There are a few folks commenting in other threads that in my opinion have gone waaaaaay over the top in their criticism of our coach.

    I would use some caution in what you say with regard to CPR.
    (Be careful what you wish for.)

    Is there another coach out there you would rather have that would come here, for what CPR is being paid, and do a better job?

    Constructive criticism is one thing ...........................

    Just my opinion, of course.
