    Our Lunatic Fringe fans are worse then the Jahadic Wing of Hawkeye fans. The only thing I'll ever agree with from Steve Deace.

    I clearly stated it may or may not work. But, this is no surprise. We've seen this Mess before. Also, we had two offseasons already to make the "correct hire" but we chose to do nothing.

    I think the reason for that is there are plenty of the Jahadic Hawk fans but not many of our lunatic fringe, so they have to scream louder to be heard.

    Even with our mighty contract we gave him. Teams that suck usually more then us pay a high salary.
    With one win and a possible second against KU, he is officially overpaid for this year.

    Seriously CPR? You just got 40k+ fans buying season tickets and as "intelligent" as we are about football, we dont want to use excuses for being a laughing stock. I see no improvement and if thats the attitude you want me to have then dont expect me to buy tickets next year.

    Watch the press conference today maybe I'm overreacting and just frustrated but he walks in so casually and says the same thing each week. "So excited about this prep this week and cant wait to see the results Saturday." SHUT UP you have gotten spanked each week as coaches and your plans have failed miserably. If you are so excited and passionate then show it with your work not your dumb coach speak.
    He didnt say YOU are intelligent btw. So you can cross yourself off that list. WTF is he supposed to say.

    I agree except for blaming injuries. In this system, QBs will always get injured. It's going to happen when SR leads the team in carries over and over at the start of the season.

    EVERYTHING possible that could go wrong this year has gone wrong. EVERYTHING. It's a freaking comedy of errors. Our walking dead line up of wounded/injured players is huge. Hell, we even had poor David Irving go out with a non-football health issue. Sam was finally healthy against Tulsa and Texas and he gets reinjured. Luke Knott comes out with a good freshman season and his hip goes bad. Center after center after center gets injured. Our tight ends are like the MASH unit.
    This, this, this. Just because we are having a bad season doesn't 1) mean we need to fire every coach and 2) doesn't mean we need to blindly support every coach either. I would hope most rational fans would fall in between somewhere.

    Re: Rhoads is a man with no pressure

    So you people are just fine with a one win season. Give him another year. He had another year, since the last bowl game debacle. What did he do with that year? Not a whole lot that I can tell.What are the excuses for that? We looked the same 9 months after that bowl game, with the same problems, before the convenient "injuries" excuse came up.

    I love the low expectation crowd. You know what, we used to have very low expectations for Men's bball, Women's bball, and volleyball.

    I cannot believe so many are willing to accept perpetual mediocrity. Is it the Iowa Boy thing? Was that why we should have held onto McD too?

    CPR doesn't win another game this year, CPR's seat should be scorched.

    Is it just me or are the people that are acting like nothing is wrong and dont care that the team is 1-8 seem to be the lunatic fringe fans?

    It is the lunatic fringe against the "head in the sand" faction!

    Who will come out victorious? Will be interesting to see in two years.

Do people honestly think Rhoads is dismissive of the season? Seriously? He's better than that. Posts like this say so much more about you than they do Rhoads. Without outwardedly addressing the pitch-fork and torched laced segment of the fanbase, what would you like a 1-8 coach to say? There isn't much left to say. There are 3 games left. They are preparing for OU.

    I have found that the people who are always spouting about ISU never winning 10 games or never doing anything are the ones who are jumping off the cliffs right now. That's confusing. I mean, some of you have told us this is how it is and I don't understand why you're having a fit right now. You expected it. The idiots like me who expect more should be the ones calling for everyone's head, not you.
    One win seasons are never acceptable whether due to injuries, youth, or academics. The three game non conference season should always guarantee a couple of wins.

    Yep. Irrational exuberance.

    Not only have we not improved, we are still trying the same exact things. I have yet to hear how we will magically run the spread consistently better than our opponents with inferior talent and coaching. Not only that, they see it every day in practice! Insanity.

    Please, please, please find me somebody that doesn't care that we're 1-8 and that everything is perfect. Just because we don't flip out like children doesn't mean we're okay with all this. This argument is so fricken dumb.
