    Dont get me wrong, I don't think there is a better fit for ISU then CPR and I honestly would not want any other coach here. However, there are many better coaches then him.

    [QUOTE=Isuska;3196948]if Paul Rhoads left before he had Iowa State in the hunt annually for Big12 titles, he would make the list right up there with the like of Gene Chizik and Cael Sanderson/QUOTE]


    GC: No longer care, now glad he left.

    Cael: Yeah, that one I get.

    If Wisconsins next coach isn't Paul Chryst I'd be shocked.

    Nope...GC didn't build anything here and was a familiar face on the Plains. They (the administration and a few boosters with a lot of cash) wanted him to replace Tuberville before GC ever left Auburn. CPR has zero direct ties to Wisconsin...they would hire him based on his performance in Ames and only that. So if our performance declines in the future do you think a program like UW (if it even is) would hire him based upon his first four years at ISU? Doubt it...he would no longer be a hot commodity. Pitt might go after him in that case since they think fondly of him, but not a program that he has no ties to...can't sell it.

    Does Rhoads have any ties to Wisconsin? I can't find any.

    Re: Rhoads has intrest in coaching Wisconsin?

    So many posts here are saying CPR will stay here until something happens...his kid graduates, he wins a Big 12 title, blah, blah, blah.

    Why in the world don't you think that he would not want to stay here for his entire remaining career? Hayden Fry walked into a horrible situation at Iowa, righted the ship and spent the rest of his time there. His successor is still there. Why do we think that all coaches are after the next bigger check?

    Look at the coaches we have. Two are career people for sure (basketball programs). Why not others?

    yeah I'd say they blow ISU out of the water. Wisconsin is a top 20 job, some of you are treating it like they're Pitt.

    He wouldn't be the first coach to turn down an offer from a better program though.

    anyway, this is all moot because I don't see Wisconsin going in that direction.
    They needed PSU and OSU on sanctions to do that with Michigan sucking/recovering from sucking to do that. In the long run, it's probably the fifth best job in the B1G. You have to recruit the midwest against Brady Hoke and Urban Meyer now. MSU, is a lot better program than it was. Wisconsin isn't that great of a job. A step up for ISU, yes, but it's not elite and I stand by thinking there will need to be an elite job there to lure CPR away.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Re: Rhoads has intrest in coaching Wisconsin?

    I'm wondering if Chizik's faceplant at AU might be good for us keeping CPR longer. Admittedly, they are two vastly different coaches, but if it helps, I'll take it.

    THIS. AND the fact that he turned down a raise to add money to the facilities. He's not leaving.

    Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl is almost as bad as you in a mafia game.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”

    I don't disagree with you, but I'm still puzzled as to why Bielema treated the job (Wisconsin) like it was Pitt.

    I agree with this 100%. As long as ISU's athletic department remains status quo, I don't see CPR leaving.

    A lot of people in the ISU community could say the exact same thing about Danny Mac! He didn't leave at the height of his success at ISU and look where it got him. I am strongly hoping that CPR isn't near the height of his success at ISU however!!
