    Rhoads quoted in coaching article.

    I hadn't seen this posted here on CF, so sorry if already up. Talks about CFB assistants and salary vs roles on different teams. CPR is quoted in the article and in not so few words calls Bobby Elliot replacable. Interesting read/viewpoints from a few coaches.

    Re: Rhoads quoted in coaching article.

    I like CPR's three things: recruiting, caring about the players and teaching the game. Seems like a recipe for success.

    I wonder which our previous coach struggled with and as a result struggled to succeed here...

    I think Rhoads realizes that there are plenty of position coaches out there who can do those three things, but with a smaller budget, he is just going to have to do more legwork than the coach at a Notre Dame.

    That sucks for Wisconsin! Losing 6 coaches, damn!

    I was also really shocked at Washington's coaching budget. Coordinators at 850k, hell, their Dline coach makes 300k!! Crazy!

    Re: Rhoads quoted in coaching article.

    Forgive me for this reference but I just watched Moneyball the other night and I couldnt help but think of Iowa State.

    We constantly have to do more with less $$. That means we have to find the best coaches in the price range and not overpay for anyone.

    Also have to have players/coaches that are 100% ALL IN so that the system will work.


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register

    Thats a pretty good comparison.

    At ISU, we also have to play small ball sometimes with our players. We can't bring in high priced, homerun hitting, free agents (5 star players) that can play right away, so we develop solid guys in our "minor league system" and have kids that are quality starters after a few years in the program. It also seems like the staff at ISU is trying to do this consistently and keep pipelines full so that whenever someone graduates, a solid replacement is ready.

    Which we have done a great job at. Look at safety positions. Lose O'Connell, fill in with Washington. Lost Benton this year, looks like Brackens will fill that role perfectly.

    They have been doing a great job. The process won't happen overnight, but we are are on the right track and making great progress.

    Is it wrong that I saw the OP's avatar and thought it was from the opening of Night Court?
