    Should CPR Take A Page Out Of The Mayor's Playbook?

    Could it work? Is it worth it?

    Michael Dyer says he wants to return for 2013 season - CBSSports.com

    Probably not, but I'd think about it.

    No way. Can you imagine if all the ISU football team did was shoot threes? HAVE YOU SEEN OUR FIELD GOAL KICKING STATS??????

    One part of me likes giving guys second chances but another part would prefer Rhoads doesn't start. He's got good running backs and he's getting good recruiting classes. I think at this point he should continue to build the program the same way he has for the past four years.

    if it were a RS freshman or soph i could see it - treat it like a JUCO. However....football is vastly different than BBall. BBall is essentially a quick tutorial of plays/style away from being able to hit the court running. Football is a whole helluva lotta moving pieces.

    So. Unless its the equivalent of a stud JUCO (in this case tranfer Dyer)...and a lack of RB depth (we good - both in terms of 1,2 and 3-4 year talent)...then i pass. If Dyer was a RS Soph, now we're talking.

    One guy playing for one year can change a basketball program. One guy playing for one year will not have the same effect on a football team.

    If the Chiz had enough with him and kicked him off the team, i don't think he is a good fit in Ames. Plus, a RB won't make that much difference if no one is blocking for him. I don't see him being a game changer.

    This would be a third chance, apparently he was kicked out of Arkansas State too.

    Agree. Probably also a risk of having one of our younger RBs transfer as well.

    Russell Wilson called and disagrees with your opinion.


    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    Damn beat me to it


    “It’s beyond pride. It’s a restored trust. There’s a confidence again, a passion that teeters on swagger. More than anything, (Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads) has restored the Iowa State “it” factor, the steadfast belief that it is great to be a Cyclone...the man’s enthusiasm is genuine to the core...”
    – columnist Sean Keeler, Des Moines Register
