    Herman 'all in' for Pinstripe Bowl

    Moderators, feel free to merge this if necessary, but I thought it might deserve its own thread. I like how Rhoads challenged Herman heading into the bowl game. My only concern: Herman referred to Iowa State as 'them' in his quote. It should be 'us' as long as he's in our booth.

    “Coach Rhoads asked it, ‘Hey are you all in?’” Herman said. “I think that was important to him to make sure that I could totally and completely focus on Rutgers. And without hesitation I said, ‘Of course.’ I think I owe it to him, I owe it this program and I owe it to these players that I’ve been around for three years and built strong relationships with that I want to see them end this year on a great note.”

    I am happy to hear this. I was concerned about his commitment to the program and coaching the bowl game. This puts me at ease.

    Rutgers is a pretty darn good squad with a solid head coach. We will need our A game to win this, and I think we bring our A game!

    You're right. Didn't catch that in my first read-through.

    If he does, we still have Steele and Richardson. I don't see it happening though.

    Re: Herman 'all in' for Pinstripe Bowl

    ...and the offensive philosophy will stay no matter who is the coordinator. “We’ll keep doing the same thing,” Rhoads said. “We’re not going to change. We’re going to find somebody who conforms to us rather than conform to him. It’s easier for one to conform to 50-some than it is the other way around.”
    Good the hear.

    I would be absolutely shocked if he did that.

    Highly unlikely, he'd have to sit out another year.
