    Probably even harder when you consider Paul does all his communication via the post office, smoke signal, and carrier pigeon, since he is so traditional and doesn't believe in new-fangled ideas like electricity.

    Sorry for the snarky response Chris, it was a very good article, I'm still just a little taken a bake by the quotes from yesterday.

    It's fine. I've come to expect it anymore. Not specifically from you, just, from everybody. Doesn't bother me. I just don't like it when folks who still want to be positive towards the program feel like they can't contribute anymore. I've had two people email me and say they are done with the board this week alone because of the snark.

    Oh well. Clones just need to win some games.

    I had no idea the school couldn't pay for the parents to come on the recruiting visits. I always assumed that would be paid for.

    Yep, winning solves all. I think when you look at how innovative Fred is, with the success he has had, then you look at CPR who seems very stuck in his ways with minimal success it's just a double edged sword.

    I agree completely. The medium is what it is. Go 3-9 and fans will be unhappy. Go 9-3 and they will want to build a statue in your honor. Simple as that.

    Re: Rhoads goes in-depth on recruiting

    The one thing about CPR that I really respect though is his accountability. For example, when he talks about the leadership council he admitted that he was failing in his leadership some ways, so he took steps to address it.

    I hear it pays to cheat. Straight from Bob's mouth

    Time to tape some bills to the bottom of the dessert bowls at Hickery Park. Throw around some "Hundred Dollar Sundaes" and win some games

    That's true, but there's more to it than that. Go 9-3 and they will want to build a statue in your honor, but they will be unhappy about the way it looks, and try to tear it down at the first sign of something going wrong.

    How about the cyclones get to 9-3 first and then we will see about the statue?
