    Paul Rhoads is one awesome guy.

    Thought I'd share this story with you all.

    A couple of Army ROTC buddies and myself got done with our morning training today, and we went to eat breakfast at the Grove Cafe (which, if you haven't gone there before, best breakfast in Ames, hands-down). Since it was getting a bit late for breakfast, we were all in our uniforms.

    Anyway, we got a table and were waiting for a few more to show up. Paul Rhoads came in while we were there and ate breakfast as well. He finished up before we even came close to being done, so he paid and left before us.

    The cafe's owner came over to us afterwards, and told us that Rhoads had paid for all of our tickets before he left. We were surprised that he'd do that, and appreciated it.


    Anyways, a few things to take from this:
    1) ISU money all up in this *raven*!


    2) Paul Rhoads is an awesome man, as if we needed any reinforcement of this fact.




    tl;dr : Paul Rhoads paid for Army ROTC cadets' meals randomly, and he is awesome.

    Nice. He is awesome. Too bad he's running out of gas.

    Don't want to hijack your story, but further proof of his awesomeness. I have a buddy going through chemo treatments right now, the other day he posted on fb that CPR called him to give some encouraging words. I don't know the details because I haven't asked him about it, but it was really cool to see that.

    Maybe not, if he ordered a bunch of eggs for breakfast.

    He will be remembered long after his termination at season end.

    That is awfully optimistic of you to think that he will make it to the end of the season.

    He bought them breakfast now cause he has the money, but knows he might be looking for a couch to crash on by mid September.

    Yup, this truly is the first sign he's coasting. He's resorted to buying fans breakfast to drum up support for himself.

    Oh yeah, honestly, this is a cool story.

    That's the kind of well balanced breakfast that keeps you going all day!
