    Boy, this really takes me back

    Silent, lifeless crowd. Empty east upper deck. Hapless team of QUITTERS on the field. Cold fall wind blowing through Jack Trice Stadium.

    Reminds me of all those fall Saturdays I spent with my dad, may he rest in peace, in section D row 6. Thank you CPR and Cyclones for bringing it all back.

    Yep. I had hope these days wouldn't be back at ISU - guess I should have known better.

    Merry Christmas!
    I wrapped it up and sent it
    With a note saying "I Love You" I meant it
    Now I know what a fool I've been
    But if you kissed me now I know you'd fool me again

    Re: Boy, this really takes me back

    I really thought we were past this 2 years ago after our biggest win ever.

    Since then, 7-16 with a team that looks worse each week. This is really an unbelievable development that should have been impossible.

    agree - middle 90's when the only question was how bad the loss would be, and how soon the opposing team would put the 2nd team in.

    It's all about b-ball IMO, where we actually have a chance to become a legit powerhouse.

    Our football program will likely never be consistently competitive.

    It's bad. We are outmanned everywhere. Defense can't stop anyone, and the offense has no chance to score.

    All goes back to the recruiting. It has been terrible since CPR arrived and hasn't improved. It's hard to ever build something more than a program with a ceiling of 5-6 wins (including several cupcakes out of conference) when you are relying on players with 2 stars and no BCS offers. Some people blindly look past that, but it's the truth.

    Until the recruiting picks up, is there any real reason to expect anything better than maybe a 5 or 6 win program in the best of seasons, and 2-3 wins in ugly rebuilding seasons?

    Re: Boy, this really takes me back

    Rhoads has been a .500 coach and Iowa State has 17 straight game of 50,000+ fans. Sooner or later, if the product doesn't improve, ISU will be consistently under 40-45k fans, hitting the AD in his pockets. Until that point, there is a 0% chance Rhoads leaves as long as the AD sees no difference in the balances. Rhoads also has a 10 year contract, which honestly, I think was a bad move. ISU had 1 year over .500. That doesn't scream let's give Rhoads the keys and let him get the program for 10 years. Hoiberg has deserved his contract, Rhoads hasn't. I don't think Rhoads should get canned, however, for the people wanting Rhoads gone, you kinda put Rhoads in a spot where he's untouchable, you have part of the blame in this. End rant.

    Won't be any record ticket sales next year, that's for sure.

    No heart. No leadership on the field. No depth. Really questionable coaching decisions. Not a winning formula.


    -Be kind. That is something you will never regret. You will never say to yourself when you are old "I wish I was not good to that person".
