    Rhoads to address media today around noon

    I know this has been talked about in another thread but thought I'd start another for those who were unaware.

    Paul Rhoads will address the media today around noon. Big 12 commish Bob Bowlsby is in town and he'll have a press conference right at noon. I assume Rhoads will come in once the commish is done.

    According to an Iowa State release, it is to address a "two-deep issue." It's got to be the quarterback decision.

    Follow me on Twitter for instant reaction @ChrisMWilliams. CF/CFTV will be in Ames for full coverage of the news.

    Count me among the unaware (teed up for those inclined to insult me). Thanks for the heads up!

    It'll be nice to have a starter named so we all can then talk about the upside to the backup.

    I was just thinking the other day how this same thing happened last year, except it was Tiller/Jantz....and then somewhat unceremoniously it was announced Tiller was academically ineligible and Jantz got defaulted in.

    I'm hearing it is a change in the backup long snapper.

    We should make everyone declare a side before the announcement.

    Figure it will be Jantz, I am sure the tape reviews has been risk/reward and that is why we have the delay.

    Is this about the kicking situation?

    Re: Rhoads to address media today around noon

    I too think it'll be Jantz....he's shown a lot of upside in the past and, my guess, is riding the pine last year may have really got him focused/coached as this is truly his last "go" at football. But, like many have said, the leash will be short and because Jared has shown he's capable, he'll be ready to go.

    I have no clue what type of coaching Jantz has received, but I'm sure A LOT of it is mental, making reads, doing the "safe" thing. And, as CPR has said, it's a run first offense and hopefully we can control the game with our backs and use the simplified short passes here and there. No matter what, I'm ready for them all to take the field. And am truly hoping we see Barnett if Jantz is the starter because it's the fourth quarter and we're up by a lot. :)
