    What are Rhoads responsibilties during games

    My step son ask me this question. He said, "Paul doesn't wear a headset during the games, so what does he do?" I don't know if that was just when he was watching or if he usually doesn't.

    He was saying on Murph and Andy that he'll put on the headphone during a critical drive to give his input. Otherwise, he is getting on the official's *** and rallying the troops.

    This is probably one of the reasons our assistant coach's seem happy in Ames. I can't imagine any assistant likes to be micro-managed by their head coach.

    As noted above, he puts it on sometimes when he wants to give input on something being done from guys in the box. You sometimes see him talking to his assistants on the sideline giving input. A lot of the time, he's more of a motivator for the players, wihch I have no problem with.

    He wears a headset when he needs to. He makes the big calls in the game.

    Clapping. It's all he does. Somehow, clapping is enough.

    To follow up, maybe CPR needs to put on a set of head phones, start chomping on gum, writing doodles in his notebook, showing no emotion (good or bad), and quit playing to win

    Re: What are Rhoads responsibilties during games

    His job is to yell at officials. Get his point across. Clap, More clapping. He basically works about 15 minutes a game. He has a meeting with the 2 Bobs later today about a possible raise and promotion.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.
