    Rhoads Article on ESPN Big XII Blog

    Ubbs writes about Coach Rhoads and his new contract extension:

    Link: Rhoads building toward big things at ISU - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    Doesn't do anything to stop the anxiety felt by some of the Cyclone Nation, though...

    Re: Rhoads Article on ESPN Big XII Blog

    Can't be worried about Rhoads at this point with his commitment to ISU. Even if he hadn't signed that contract, I would take whatever Ubben says with a giant grain of salt as he doesn't exactly have his finger on the pulse of anything in the Big 12 except TX football.

    Side note, nice comment from an aTm fan at the bottom of the comments section about looking forward to watching us continue to build.

    really? Seemed to me that he is fully committed, he just doesn't know what the future holds.

    nobody thought McCarney would be gone 4 years after having the team ranked in the top 10 but things happen.

    Great article, fantastic for recruiting. Thanks for posting!

    I would still have loved him to say something along the lines of "I intend to coach at ISU for as long as they will have me."

    Ubben does a fair job reporting every team in the Big XII.

    I'm sure he's constantly worried in the back of his mind that this trajectory is not sustainable at ISU. Danny Mac did some nice things here, but really, we're starting to get into uncharted waters for Cyclone football.

    I'd be worried but I have it on good authority (ahem, Beast Man) that the 10-year contract is actually a blood pact.

    CPR only leaves the door open because he doesn't want us to get complacent. We need the same attendance figures next year (or better), and we need to keep improving the facilities (SEZ time).

    JoePa got fired. Nothing is for sure. I think that's all he's saying. The only promotion I could see him taking is a shot at the NFL. I don't think he wants to coach at any other college unless he's forced to "retire" like Danny Mac.

    Well, I'm expecting exponential growth. Big 12 Champs next year, National Champs the year after.

    OSU fans don't have to worry about this, why would we?

    I would agree with this as far as ISU goes. I really haven't paid attention to much of his other coverage, but (maybe because of his early ties to ISU) he seems to give ISU more than a fair shake. It is refreshing.

    ISU will do what it is necessary to keep PR happy at ISU. No one is going to pull PR away from ISU without a serious battle. We may have to bloody a few noses, but just like Iowa has done with KF, we will step up to keep PR happy at ISU.

    I've never been more confident in the administrations commitment to successful athletics.
