    Re: Monday Musings: "Adapt or perish"

    More than anything, this thread is bringing me to a realization that Rhoads is not a guy that will get us over the hump.
    And this isn't a slam. Very few coaches could do it. There's a hundred Macarneys and Ron Princes for every one Silver Fox.

    Rhoads may never get us over the hump, but he is still the right coach for Iowa State.

    I was hoping for a different TV or conference setup. Ala carte or a progressive tax on TV revenue. Greed has killed the sport for us. Now there will be unions and paid players. They might as well call it the NFL development league.

    I agree. I decided awhile ago that I was going to sink or swim with Rhoads. And I'll stick to that.

    It is all based on recruiting, good recruits make coaches look good.

    Except old Mack Brown kinda struggled with that as of late. I agree with your premise, but there is obviously more to it than that. You have to be able to mold a cohesive team and motivate that talent.

    Kansas missed OU, Texas and Texas Tech during Mangino's Orange Bowl season, so Kansas had to play them in the same rotation too.

    And we can recruit as well as k state, Baylor, Mizzou etc have over the past decade. We aren't that far off in recruiting rankings. Take a look.

    Just keep a good staff together and build something. It'll never happen if we have coaches leaving every single season.

    Edit:
    Recruiting Rank Baylor Kansas St Mizzou Iowa St

    2011 46 69 48 51
    2012 45 59 31 88
    2013 31 66 41 58
    2014 34 47 35 56
    Ave. Recruiting Rank 43 61 34 64
    Ave. Wins Per Season *'09-'13 8.0 8.4 8.6 5.4

    In my amateur opinion, even 20 spots in the rankings is relatively insignificant. Especially when comparing middle of the pack teams and not the top 25.

    Re: Monday Musings: "Adapt or perish"

    Whatever you post, imagine it in a resurrection thread in 6 months. I'm going with 6-7 wins, including 3-4 in conference. This is the year we get over the hump. Good o-line and QB making quick passes to slanting receivers will open up everything else. Worked for Baylor.

    Would you rather Klenakis and Mess were still on the staff?

    Are juco recruits included in those rankings?

    Re: Monday Musings: "Adapt or perish"

    Our football program sucks because our Head Coach sucks. The sooner everybody realizes that the better off we will be. Best thing I did last year was not renew season tickets, and I wont this year either. Cant wait for basketball!
