    We're turning into Iowa fans

    Seriously guys? One of the things that is so awesome about the Cyclone fanbase is that we don't go all doomsday on stuff. Now we can no longer say that. Now we are talking about firing a coach who has sent several linemen to the NFL, and firing an OC that's only been an OC for 7 games.

    Yes the playcalling could have been better, but some of the stuff he called was very well timed.

    Yes the offensive line could have played better, but it might have helped if we could have gotten a few big runs on scrambles.

    Yes we could have thrown the ball better, but it would have helped if we would have caught a few balls that were dropped. I'm not saying that I'm not disappointed, but I don't want all of us to turn into the Iowa fans that we hate the most.

    And by the way, by doubting the coaches that Rhoads hired, you are therefore doubting Rhoads, which I think all of us would refuse to do, and deny that we're doing

    Fail. That would never happen... NEVER EVER compare our fanbase to some of those d-bags.

    I know that none of us want to admit it, but this board right now feels a lot like what HawkeyeNation looked like after our win versus them

    Some Iowa fans take it a heck of a lot further that what we do... It will never get that low here I hope.

    Re: We're turning into Iowa fans

    Yeah, let's go back to the way things used to be, where we were content to losing to lesser teams and never expected to win.

    This meltdown isn't very significant compared to others I have seen on this board.

    That's not just Iowa fans, it's really how any fanbase with any kind of expectations react.
