    "There are different comfort levels wherever you go in this country, but it’s hard not to be comfortable when you’re home.”


    "We embrace that challenge and what it presents to us. Iím going to approach all 12 games this way: Weíre going to win them all. If we prepare and then go out and execute, weíre going to win all 12. Now how many are we going to end up with at the end of the year? I donít know, and youíre right, I wonít put a number on it."- Paul Rhoads on having the toughest schedule in the Big 12

    I'm not too worried about losing him this year. Not a whole lot of great openings, most would be lateral moves at best.

    In the future, we'll see, and we'll probably lose him eventually (though id absolutely love it if he succeeded here and wanted to stay for life), but the more time CPR is here the more he can hopefully raise the stature of the program so the next guy doesnt have such a hard building process.

    Let's just hope this doesn't become an unfamous "firmly entrenched" article... honestly though i'm not worried about CPR for some reason.

    That is one hell of a comforting quote.

    Absolutely positively reading too much into it but I wonder if when he says "It's painfully obvious," he's trying to comfort his fans while still not coming out to say he'll be here for ever so he still has leverage for a contract, fascilities, or whatever else he wants improved.

    I will make a bold statement, as long as we continue to increase our attendance and donations, CPR will never leave.

    Re: Itís painfully obvious, though, how happy I am here. This is different from other

    Rhoads is one of us. He's an Iowan and I believe he is going to be here a long time and take Iowa State to places it has never been before. Remember every big name program in the country at one time or another had a great coach take a chance and stick it out with that school to make that program what it is. I believe CPR is going to be that coach for Iowa State. Right now it is important for us fans to support him, the team, and the athletic department to give him what he needs to create a winning program.

    Sold me, he's here for the long run!

    Re: Itís painfully obvious, though, how happy I am here. This is different from other

    Nice article that I think hit the perfect note - we need to appreciate Rhoads while he is here and make sure that Pollard has the financial resources to keep him (both for salary and facilities) so a big name program isn't able to swoop in and give him an offer he can't refuse.

    I don't think this is a bold statement. I think he is here for the long term no matter who comes calling.

    In the end it will come down to us whether he moves on or not. If we can become that consistent 12th man and end the BS excuses, he will call this place home forever. I know its about changing a culture but some of it comes back to us.

    Exactly. He's not going to firmly say he's not leaving at any point as it removes any contract leverage he has.

    I think he's ours for sure until one of the big names steps up and throws him a big number, and at that point who knows. There arent that many of those openings though in a year.

    I don't think CPR will be here forever but I think we have a chance to keep him until things change in his family. I think being close to his father and having two kids in high school makes him pretty happy at the moment.
