    Great Rhoads quote on ISU fans...

    Was asked to compare the fan base now compared to when he was here in the 90's...

    ďThere is energy in them. I think we have provided hope in them. I think there is a faith that goes back and forth. We have provided that faith that we are working hard to deliver. That doesnít mean that I donít have my share of hate mail when I got in this weekend but that goes along with it. The thing thatís different about Iowa State fans than other places I have been across the country is that they tell you how poor of a job that you did and then come back and tell you that they are still supporting you and that they are looking forward to the next game. At other places, they have wanted to run me over with a car.Ē

    Even though it could be a rough year for cyclone football...I'll still be in section 13 row 6 seat 3 for every game. That's what bleedin' cardinal n gold is all about.

    I love CPR but nut up and kick Mess to the curb. We can't go through another coach who is not willing to get rid of dead weight ala Danny Mac part 2.

    Re: Great Rhoads quote on ISU fans...

    Rhoads gets it. What our fans need to remember is he is responsible for creating the hope that any given Saturday, Friday or Thursday. The next step is to not have the let downs like this past Saturday. Let downs killed Mac. The top ten ranking vs Oklahoma was the height of let downs and subsequent losses thereafter. People need to remember this isn't that. This is a very young team and while we hope and want to see improvement, off days will happen.

    I'll give Mess another game or two - but after that - yeah, I agree. We need a good playcaller.

    Re: Great Rhoads quote on ISU fans...

    There was energy in those of us who were fans in the 80's and 90's, in the midst of the losing streak to Iowa. CPR and the boys have produced some good moments and victories, for sure.

    I'll be at every home game this year, next year and years after.

    I still had fun going to games during the chizik years(just didn't enjoy the results). Don't know what it would take to get me to stop going.

    Re: Great Rhoads quote on ISU fans...

    I love coach as much as the rest of us but if he puts a performance against Iowa like the bowl game and UNI game, these fans will get very cranky, very quickly. You will be able to kiss all this momentum and fan support goodbye very fast... I am sure he realizes this and we see a much more focused team in 2 weeks...




    I WAS THERE!!!!!!

    There are plenty of threads for that; give it a rest.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldnít get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Personally I'd rather take a few years of this and a few years of bowling with this coaching staff over sitting next to fair weather fans and paying out the nose to do so.

    100% agree. I felt like I was watching the same game again.

    I agree UNI is an FCS team, and Iowa is not good - everyone knows we should be beating teams like this.

    This.

    I've had fun watching Walden, Mac, and even Chiz and his fishing buddies put teams on the field. I watched the goalposts come down for beating Ohio, pre-Frank Solich terrible Ohio, and for beating Nebraska in 92 when our team was down to the third QB. Every team was fun to watch at times. Lots of fun, and I'll be back, hopefully a lot of times in the future.
