    Rhoads rescues hometown program

    Paul Rhoads stays true to his roots in rebuilding the Iowa State football program - College Football News | FOX Sports on MSN

    And so when the Cyclones upset the national championship picture last November, this was more than a 26½-point underdog stepping up big on the national stage. This was more than the first time Iowa State had ever beaten a team ranked in the top six. This was more than an Iowa State middle finger pointed in the general direction of Auburn, Ala. This was Paul Rhoads starting a bit of a winning tradition in a place that’s used to being the underdog.

    Agreed, only one big mistake when he said the 2010 team won a bowl game.

    They did in 2009, but it was new years so it was close to 2010.

    Maybe the author was watching from Europe where it was already 2010.

    Re: Rhoads rescues hometown program

    That's a local guy writing that piece. Moved from the Register to Fox Sports a couple of years ago.
    Nice guy that happens to be a very good writer.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
