    Coach PR on being at ISU

    Short and to the point. Being very pragmatic about it. In a nutshell it doesn't matter who you are if you don't win in the big leagues.

    Re: Coach PR on being at ISU

    He's obviously very happy to be here. There's no guarantee that he'll be our coach for the very-long term, but I'm sure JP & Co. will do all they can to make it so. It's been (what feels like) a long time since Cyclone Nation has been this excited about a head coach and the potential he brings.

    Anyone who reads that and thinks he's on his way out is an idiot.

    Where I heard it too. Seems like they fabricated it a little. Rhoads has always been up front and honest unlike Cap'n Kirk over at EIU.

    He has had a great 3 years and I hope he continues to build the program, but as with every program/sport, there will be opportunities to move on to different jobs that may be better for the coach and their family.

    He is saying the right thing, and I hope he can retire here. Likelihood of that? Slim to none. How many times does a coach start there and finish there? Not often.

    Re: Coach PR on being at ISU

    Well this will eliminate one of my pet peeves on this site.

    That is...

    When people say "Iowa State is Paul Rhoads dream job." What an egocentric statement that is for someone to make about another person they do not know.

    Does this mean we can finally fire Pollard?

    I agree that he is happy to be here but I feel he understands the game of college football. If he would put a string of 5 losing season together, I know some people would be singing a different tune about him and he would be in the hot seat by then if not sooner.

    I honestly hope he retires at ISU after many successful seasons.
