    SbB Talks About Rhoads...

    SPORTSbyBROOKS Are Rhoads Explosions Taking Toll On Iowa State?


    EDIT: I just realized this had been out there for a while. I don't understand why it's on top of their front page, though, it doesn't look good next to the Sandusky story.

    My guess would be that it is a location based thing. Would be interested to see if the story is in the same spot on the front page for someone in California. I would guess not.

    That was a well planned out article release to scare off Penn State from hiring Rhoads.

    That's odd. How come I never heard one word of this after it happened? Not one peep? Where are all the media and ISU fans who thought it went too far?

    I realize you're just criticizing what you don't understand, but this is a website that gets a lot of traffic nationally.

    I don't understand a hawk taking a shot at ISU? It probably gets traffic from the Erin pictures, no great original content that I can see.

    Heck, I was jumping up and down for that game too at the refs. That is why the last two games have seemed so much better with decent refs. Until the last two, I thought we had a Scarlet letter mark on our back.

    Re: SbB Talks About Rhoads...

    It was on ESPN's Bottom 10 waiting list after that game as well. It isn't a problem...the refs are the problem. We've had the game change on our team in almost every game this season. I was jumping up and down too because these calls are ruining any chance to stay competitive in a game. The onside kick offsides call against Baylor was probably the final straw.
