    Questions For CPR

    I was thinking about calling into the show tonight. I am as frustrated as the next fan, but I don't think the blame game or sky is falling is the right approach to take. I do think that as an alumni, fan, Cyclone club member, and season ticket holder I should be able to get some accountability. I have put together a few questions that I have, and wanted to see what you all thought or if anyone had any valid questions they would like added to my list.

    1. Identity, What is the goal of our offense. Iowa is ball control / limit possessions much like K-State. OU, TT, Baylor like to get up tempo and tire the defense.

    2. Where is our depth in year 5? I know we have had injuries, but in year 5, I would hope we would have built on a foundation where we could absorb some of these injuries. Have we missed on recruits that haven't developed to provide this depth.

    Please only comment if have constructive suggestions. We all know how sarcasm works on this site.

    Ask him why Mess is still our coordinator


    ďI told you, I donít care if youíre black or white. I donít care if youíre rich or poor. I donít care where you come from, whether itís Texas, Florida, California, or right here in the state of Iowa, I donít care about any of thatÖ But what I did care about is moving forward from that day on, that we were one team." -Paul Rhoads

    Ask him why he likes to systematically destroy our QB's confidence.

    Re: Questions For CPR

    Those are legit questions. They are intelligent and not inflammatory. I would guess that he would be happy to answer.

    I'll rephrase mine. What is his logic behind how he uses Qbs especially in the Baylor game.

    That would suck! Haha I was obviously joking. Rhoads will say the same thing as he said last week when someone asked pretty much the same question. He said he has "an excellent coordinator and there is no need to make any changes to that"

    This would be an interesting question.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Yeah, Rhoads is going to say nice things about everyone. Its what I expect him to do honestly. Throwing players and coaches under the bus is a sign of bad leadership principles. Rhoads is a stand up guy.

    Love the questions, but I feel at this point in the season you will just get a bunch of "coachspeak" and not get the real answers you would like and we all deserve.

    I love idiots like you on this site. It's always fun to see the posters on here who have zero knowledge of the game of football, but yet are the most vocal about it. Coach destroying the QB's confidence? We have to play somebody at the QB position and anybody we put out there is going to lose confidence as he gets hit on 1/2 his drop back passes. Even the greatest QB's ever to play the game get gun shy and lose confidence when they don't trust their OL
