    Great Rhoads to ISU article

    From Bobby La Gesse from the Ames Tribune:

    Go Cyclones - Rhoads on his crazy December 2008

    Very good read. Didn't know that Rhoads interviewed for the Utah State head job because Auburn played Alabama in 2008.

    He was also talking to 3 different schools about becoming a coordinator after being let go by Auburn.

    It is an interesting article. I'm usually not that picky about spelling/grammar but you think the guy could have done better than that. Especially annoying was using "quite" instead of "quiet" two times in the same sentence. Probably a victim of the spell checker but come on...

    That especially bothers me when it is in a quote. It kind of makes the person you are quoting look like an idiot; not good journalism!

    Re: Great Rhoads to ISU article

    I noticed the same errors in the story.

    Overall the article left me wanting more info. I suppose maybe this isn't the time for a full breakdown on his move, but it just seemed like a "tip of the iceberg" kind of thing. Oh well, I'm very glad CPR found his way back, however he got here.
