    Back in the Bottom Ten again

    For the first time (I think) since preseason 2009, we've made an appearance in the ESPN Bottom 10. :sadface: Even worse, it's a Miley Cyrus-themed article. Hopefully they didn't see the twerker in our crowd.

    Re: Back in the Bottom Ten again

    Think of it this way, At least Greg McDermott is not our head basketball coach like he was in 2009. And 2009 turned out ok didn't it? I mean we made a bowl game and finished 4th in the Big 12 north


    ďUrgency,Ē Rhoads said. ďThatís exactly what I told our staff. Itís exactly what I told our players. Urgency in getting your job done. Thatís in a 100 percent rate of speed at executing your responsibility ó whether itís a fit, whether itís a tackle, whether itís a route, whether itís a cut-off block. Everybody needs a little bit more urgency in coaching and playing.Ē

    If this does not get CPR fired up, I do not know what will. This is a travesty! ESPN says we stink.

    We are way better than South Florida and Idaho, we should be no higher (or lower?) than 8th. Emailing JP with my concerns.

    "Hoedown Throwdown?" They really do think we're all a bunch of hicks gnawing on corn cobs, driving down the dirt road on our 50 year old tractors, don't they?

    Re: Back in the Bottom Ten again

    Our program absolutely deserves this, as well as any other ridiculing thrown their way. Losing to an FCS team and a team that is below average in the below average Big 10 is cause for being heckled.
