    Paul Rhoads vs. Kirk Ferentz

    Blog debate: Paul Rhoads vs. Kirk Ferentz - Big 12 Blog - ESPN

    "Rhoads is unbelievable. Coaching is all about getting the most out of what you have. Rhoads does that as well as anybody in the country. Gene Chizik won a national championship at Auburn ... and went 5-19 in two seasons in Ames before he did it. Rhoads took the same two-win team from Chizik and turned them into a seven-win team, winning the first bowl game for the school since 2004. Not many guys can do that."

    "The thing that ISU fans have to love most about Rhoads, though, is how much he's changed the perception of the school. It's similar to what Mike Leach established at Texas Tech. Teams fear Iowa State, and after last year's win over Oklahoma State, how could they not? Iowa State's anything but a gimme win these days. That alone is worth a lot."

    I was glad to see that someone finally recognized this:

    I don't care how many turnovers Nebraska had in that game, by the way. Somebody had to force them, no?

    Re: Paul Rhoads vs. Kirk Ferentz

    My buddy is at a coaching convention today where both coaches are. He talked to CPR for 10 minutes and said he speaks with the same intensity as you see on gameday.

    He said Kirk is on the mic and he sees 3 people sleeping as Kirk has been talking about OL and blocking for 45 minutes LOL

    Which is why I hope neither school ever lose their respective coaches

    CPR doesn't require the athletic department to employ all of his male relatives.

    Nebraska's 8 turnovers vs iowa state - YouTube

    In case you needed some refreshing. Never fails to make my day.


    *EDIT* what you are looking for is at 1:02. There was ISU presence. The presence was him nailing his foot and make the ball carrier think about his feet and not about his hands, thus losing control of the ball. Simple case of trying too hard and coming up short.

    That video clip never fails to make me laugh. What a bizarre game.
