Saddest moment: Paul Rhoads revealing a clean-shaven face.
There was no moment of silence before the Iowa State coach began answering questions from the media, but there should have been. Rhoads was the proud owner of a strong salt-and-pepper beard all offseason, but he fell in line with the rest of the Big 12 coaches before media day, showing up with nary a hair on his face. Bring it back! Even his players were upset at the loss. LB A.J. Klein
was rocking shoulder-length hair of his own, and he wants to see the beard this fall.
