    Rhoads sounded really happy to have Bowlesby coming to the Big 12.

    Didn't love his question to "will you retire at ISU?" and he basically said he doesn't think so...that he and his wife have not been in one place that long and few coaches do.

    Good interview. He got a little choked up talking about his mother, but Murph segwayed as well from that as possible.

    They asked the "will you retire at ISU" question at the end. He didn't say yes, side-stepped a little. But did say "if I would end up retiring at ISU, I'd be a very happy man." Talked about how you really can't answer that question with any certainty given the nature of coaching.

    Yeah, but statistically that doesn't happen much. He did kinda imply if everything went really well and he did, he'd be happy.

    Yeah, hearing him talking about football got me excited for football to start. Didn't like hearing him say the thing about thinking he wont retire here though, and that people are usually only around jobs for 8 years or so... Although he did say if he did retire here that he would be happy.

    Wasn't too sure what he meant by that.




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    I signed up for the Ride To Remember last week (missed it last year). Any other fanatics going to have their "knees in the breeze" in a few weeks with CPR?

    I appreciate his honesty, but I really wish he would find a better way to answer that question. A simple "I would be delighted to finish my career at Iowa State if given the opportunity" would be a sufficient and much better answer. Of course, his honesty in interviews is part of what we love about him.

    Re: Coach Rhoads about to be on 1460 KXNO

    I can only guarantee one thing: If CPR leaves here, we will be in a much better place than we were before him. I think he wants to see if there is a ceiling here. If we were to win the Big 12 Championship or compete year in and year out within the next 7-10 years, I think that would be good enough. I think, coming in, his main goal was to make this a more attractive job than it was when he got here. That's fine with me.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Yeah, I'm with you on this. Find a more artful way to answer the question. At least with Iowa fans' fears about Ferentz, the concern is being generated from outside media. To hear Rhoads himself stoke those concerns, however unintentional his answer may be, kind of sucks.

    And let me pre-empt the lectures about how if he gets hired away it will be because we've won, blah blah blah. Starting over is never fun. We've seen too many people leave and go on to success somewhere else.

    Would you rather be blindsided if he ever does leave? He's being honest, you have to appreciate that.

    Re: Coach Rhoads about to be on 1460 KXNO

    People are reading WAY too much into this. I think he was referring to coaches not lasting that long at places because of how the landscape is in college football today when fans get impatient with coaches for not winning enough or having a couple of down years.

    He's not dumb. He saw what happened to McCarney
