    When does Paul Rhoads finally start being criticized for the problems with the offense? HE IS THE HEAD COACH! He hired Herman and Messingham. Ultimately, the criticism is on him.

    Re: When does Paul Rhoads finally start being criticized???

    It is pretty pathetic that 6-6 gets you into a bowl game. Actually, it's very pathetic. But we'll take it. At least we had a really difficult schedule. It wasn't easy to get to 6 wins with our schedule.

    But we will be going to a crappy bowl, which is exactly what we deserve IMO. Still better than being a Hawkeye fan right now.

    Dude I know.

    6-5 was like, sooooooo much better back in the day.

    Good thing all of those 6-5 teams always won their bowls, I'd hate to find out that 6-6 teams have been playing in bowls all along.

    Re: When does Paul Rhoads finally start being criticized???

    I'll criticize Rhoads for one thing. This staff overvalues experience. I am sold on that, especially at skill positions. Even though Richardson didn't have a great game today, he still put on a performance worthy of winning the football game which is more than we can say for the others. We have heard all along that he doesn't run as well but we saw different today. I do question not going with Richardson earlier ACCORDING TO ONLY what I have seen, which are games. I don't see practice. Bundrage is another example. He should be a starter and the passing offense needed to involve him more, especially when Lenz was hurt. In the end, our guys were in spots to make plays, even on the Austin TD. Coaches can't make plays. I will still question Messingham but that is outside the topic of the thread.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    An ISU fan saying they hate 6-6 bowl teams is like me saying I hate myself for being a middle class white guy.

    So is it up to you?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Hey, guys - while I understand the sentiments, personal attacks flat-out aren't allowed.

    Closing thread.
