    Interest in CPR

    Was just listing to an interview that 93.7 The Fan in Pittsburgh did with Coach Rhoads today. They were pressing him on his interest/involvement when the Pitt job was open. During this segment of the interview, CPR mentioned that "several schools approached [him] in the offseason."

    Not necessarily shocking, but this was the first time I had heard CPR explicitly mention this.

    Not in Pittsburgh. I'm in Ankeny, so I drive up to Ames and enjoy the games from section G in JTS.

    I just have some Google alerts set up, so I ran across the interview that way.

    I think that its nice to know he turned down other opportunities to stay here. Glad we have a coach that enjoys being here.

    Re: Interest in CPR

    I expect him to have interest from other schools. And as long as he keeps building--both the program, fanbase and facilities--I expect him to stay here.

    Re: Interest in CPR

    I'd like to know what schools approached him, just out of curiosity.

    If it's the same AD who hired Isaiah Thomas that may actually not speak well for CPR's skills as a coach.

    Excessive intake of alcohol, we all know, kills brain cells, but naturally it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers.

    Didn't Rhoads say he doesn't expect to retire at Iowa State?

    CPR+Hoiball=me not caring about coaches leaving for a long while. I can't believe how lucky we are to have these too.

    Ya he did its an honest response. He said the longest he had ever been at one school was 8 years. He also said if he did retire here he would be happy.

    If you read it in the context of the article he makes it sound like leaving for a better job is less likely than being fired. Either way it would mean he didn't retire here.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
