    Good Stuff Khaal.

    Probably not your intent but your blogs are always sobering when you take into account ISU football as a whole has not been very good.

    Those wins by Rhoads are amazing in themselves but maybe the reason CPR has been able to break all these milestones is the fact that ISU football has not succesful for the most part and the bar is set pretty low. But again maybe that also makes those milestones even more impressive. Catch-22?

    Thanks.

    You're right...that isn't my intent but it is often the case with ISU that looking at historical football results is humbling...very humbling.

    In some ways the bar is low but there are also reasons that the bar is so low over the course of 120 years. He isn't just barely clearing hurdles for a coach in his first 3 years, he is catapulting over them.

    So true. I just wish that those that were jumping off of bridges a couple of weeks ago could grasp the significance of what PR has accomplished in his short tenure.
