    Re: Rockin' Rhoads

    Nice work. I know some people are critisizing CPR for his animated response to the officials in this game (and some others) but I can honestly say that I am fine with him showing some emotion on the sidelines.

    Does he look a bit silly? Perhaps. However at a minimum it demonstrates to his players that he is fighting for them and will not just sit back and take a kick to the stones if he believes that the refs missed a call.

    Does it do any good? Maybe, maybe not. Either way at least he is fighting for his players and I feel that it helps keep his players from "checking out".


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    If so, then you and everyone else who wants to ***** and complain about how emotional Rhoads gets can go find another ******* team to root for. I am sick of people complaining about one of the main reasons why Rhoads has had any success so far at Iowa State. If you want a stoic a-hole on the sidelines then go root for Auburn. We all know how much emotion that d-bag has for his team and his fans.

    Yeah I'm serious. You can show emotion and stick up for your team without looking like you are having a medical issue.

    I don't think I've ever seen a medical issue that involved a coach telling a ref to keep ******* us in the ***.

    Jumping around and holding your balls is not a requirement for that process.

    Re: Rockin' Rhoads

    I agree. Its starting to get a little bit old. There are other ways to show your emotion besides screaming at the refs continuously about a bad call. Voice your opinion and move on.

    Re: Rockin' Rhoads

    Screaming at the refs and jumping up and down like a little girl on the sidelines is embarassing. It is just plain immature. I lost a ton of respect for CPR with his antics on Saturday.

    I agree, I watched the first half last night for the first time and I thought his gyrations were a bit much. I'll take it, 'cause I love the way this guy fights for his players, but that had to embarrass him a little.

    I'm sure others heard it during the game, but did you catch the announcer reference us as the Hawkeyes? That never gets old.

    I'm sure he's devastated.

    Re: Rockin' Rhoads

    I freaking LOVE Paul Rhoads...that's the dude I'd want my son to play for. Period. That's a dude fighting for his team...that's a dude that has the fire to win at ISU. I can't imagine how one single Cyclone fan can say one negative word about the man...unreal.
