    Do people really think Rhoads could get fired after this season?

    I personally don't, but I've seen some posts saying they think he could. Even if we lose out, I have no idea how we'd fire him. He's great! Every team he's put on the field, including this one has overachieved. I think for him to get forced out, he'd have to have at least two seasons in a row being consistently non-competitive, and even then it's questionable. Quite frankly, you aren't going to find a better fit for Iowa State.

    No. Nobody thinks that.

    Some of his staff however on the offensive side should be on the hot seat.

    I will say though, while that time is not now, eventually he will have to get above the 6 win plateau we seem to be stuck at or he will find himself on the hot seat.

    You win for dumbest thread of the season. NO WAY this happens. Mess may get fired, but not CPR.


    Winning means you're willing to go longer, work harder, and give more than anyone else.

    Re: Do people really think Rhoads could get fired after this season?

    We have to have a real discussion about this. This was supposed to be ISU's best year in a long time and we are on track for another 6-7 finish if we're lucky. If Iowa State is going to make any real improvement, we might have to go in another direction at head coach. At least Rhoads' buyout is small so that shouldn't be an issue. I think we should go with a big, bold hire like a former SEC coach that has recently won a national championship and will be available. If he has prior experience in Ames, that's even better. I'm going to go look for my Chizik coin for the welcoming ceremony at Hilton.

    Voted yes just for the stupidity of the poll. Just clarifying.

    More likely executed than fired. This is serious business.

    I don't think it's going to happen. I've just seen a few posters that have the other opinion.
