    Anthony Young story in ISD

    Injuries, miscommunication mar Young's senior season at Iowa State - Iowa State Daily: Football

    Interesting story here. If true, it sounds like something that I wouldn't expect or like from CPR.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    This is very poor journalism. Where is Rhoads' side of the story?

    Any disgruntled player can come forth and try to throw Rhoads under the bus. Bunch of BS.

    I will wait to hear what Rhoads has to say first.

    I'm going to guess there is more to the story than this, but yeah, on the face, it looks bad.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    If this is the full story, it doesn't paint CPR in a great light. I imagine this is not the full story, however. The fact of the matter is you bring in JUCO guys to make an immediate impact. I can easily see how CPR would see no value in a JUCO player who was constantly nursing an injury. But who knows how serious the injury was, and I guess who really knows what the situation was with his knee.

    Why? I want CPR putting together the best possible team, sometimes that means players who have been around for awhile don't get a scholarship. It sucks but it's part of the deal.

    Says right in the article that Rhoads didn't respond to the e-mail requests to comment on the story (doesn't say how long they waited, but they did try and contact him). He also refused to comment on the announcement that Young would no longer be a part of the team when asked in the past.

    This doesn't necessarily tell the whole story, but just because Rhoads is ISU's coach doesn't mean he's going to do everything with exemplary character and to think otherwise is naive.

    Yep, definitely want to hear the other side as well. I really should have bolded the "if true" words in my original post.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    To be honest it probably doesn't go a whole lot further than "He was a JUCO who did not only not contribute immediately like was planned, but was about to tie up a scholarship on the bench for 3 years due to having an injury that would severely impact his ability to play his position"

    It was a little ****** the way it went down, but this is big time college football and there is a lot riding on the team being successful. Sometimes you just get dealt a **** hand.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    I want to hear the other side. Rhoads doesn't have a history of cutting guys to make room.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    At face value this seems really bad and Young really has no reason to lie I feel like. If this happened at any other school people would be sitting on their ivory pedestals throwing down judgement on the Coach. A la the Rhabdo incident at Iowa.

    I'm pretty sure this happens at every school. That's why I'm not sure why this is a big deal, sometimes things just don't work out.

    Re: Anthony Young story in ISD

    It happens at every school, but there seemed to be some serious communication issues. He's still a human being and he made an honest effort to contribute, he deserved the respect of knowing his fate in some meaningful way. It's a similar situation to breaking up with a girl, there's a right way to do it and a wrong way to do it.
