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

    Could it work? Is it worth it?

    Probably not, but I'd think about it.

    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.

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

    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.

    “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...”
