    Our team looked the same as last year. This defeat was worse than the UNI game in many ways.

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    The players should just take steroids. Getting busted for that would be less embarrassing at this point.

    And if they didn't get caught? Oh, the possibilities..

    Steroids do nothing for you when you are horribly unprepared and constantly out of place. No amount of PEDs could offset the deficiencies this team has.

    It's obvious by the play today that the players are not on board. Fire him now and there maybe hope for at least one win this season. If Jamie keeps him on, it will be the worst season in all of modern cyclone football history.
    Well, for one, Mike Mangino has no business being the head coach at ISU. None.

    This will not be the worst season in modern history. Everyone thought that after the UNI game last year too.

    I'm glad Mike won't be. But Mark on the other hand couldn't do any worse.

    Mike Mangino, Mark Mangino, Jimmy Mangino...whoever. None of them should be HC at ISU. I just read the whole thread and I'm absolutely baffled he's getting so much love. He is not the type of person who should be representing our school.

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    The notion that the stadium will sell out next year simply because of the SEZ is suspect at best.

    1. Why not? He won at KS.

    2. Man, the D is much worse than last year and last year's was awful. I really think West Des Moines Valley could score on this D.

    If you don't see the unbelievable lack of talent in the trenches, at QB and at LB you're kidding yourself. 3 of those 4 positions are the most important in football.

    So you're saying we'll win more than 3 games this season? Please don't fault me for not holding my breath.

    He also got fired at Kansas. Look at the man and look at his history. The guy has problems. I'm fine with him as a coordinator though I do think he's not as good as many believe he is.
