    No what YOU saw today was the officials absolutely rape UNI.

    CPR isn't going anywhere this year,

    All the dude minions, who are not even really Iowa State fans, coming on here and ******** all over the program, the coaches and the players doesn't do anything to change that fact.

    If it is that bad, I will start taking people's season tickets off their hands. You should be ready to give them away now as you jump off the cliff.

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    Rationally I look at two things in the game of college football. We are 0-2, you must recruit talent and you gotta have a QB.

    All teams that have bad QB's have bad records. That is a fact.

    Yeah, I'll give them away for the right price. After what people pay for season tickets nobody will just give them up. That's an even bigger waste of money than buying them in the first place since people like you still value them. Also, if you want my seats next year, then by all means let me know and I'll tell you which ones they are so you can personally ask for them next season.

    Come on dude, that defense is void of talent at many many positions. Just way too many recruting misses the last few years.

    Re: Why delay the inevitable?

    FarminCy is onto something...

    I told you guys a week or two ago that Rhoads lost a lot of people's respect quite awhile ago. I'm talking people in and around the program, and likely a lot of the players. Because Dean and I are Hawk fans no one wanted to believe it, but it's the truth.

    My two cents on the coaching situation. I think it's a little ridiculous to hire Mangino in the offseason to be the head coach. If you're Pollard, and you think hiring Mangino may be a possibility then you let Rhoads go and you make Mangino the interim head coach. That way you can see what he does with the team and make a more educated decision after the season.

    We will return this coaching staff for next year, unless someone leaves on their own accord. Next year will be the make or break year for CPR. Another season of what I assume will happen this season (after last year's results), will force JP to pull the trigger.
    This is right. Next year is make or break due to the new stadium and length of the contract. We are building a new stadium basically, the money isn;t there to buy out PR. Not happening....not now or this year anyway.

    Happens all the time. Especially this day and age when everyone wants to be part of the latest and greatest, shiny, new gizmo.

    This. I started having questions when we got slaughtered in the Liberty Bowl on how for the 2nd straight our coaches failed horribly to make the team care. This game looked just like the Liberty Bowl.

    Cant believe you just said this. I'd rather field a losing team then be with one that's treated like a joke(not much of a difference from right now, I know). It would make recruiting harder(can't be much worse then now). Uh... it effected SMU for a long time after they cheated and everyone looked down on SMU afterwords(we are already looked down on by most teams). Well this is pathetic.

They are saying that this also was a part of why Mangino was put in the press box.

    Take it for what it's worth but after seeing the demeanor of the team today it did nothing to make me second guess it.
    Not true. The guy you talked to isn't connected to the program and lied to you.

    Sounds just like a Hawk fan's reaction when we say nobody respects Fran on the basketball team. Don't tell me that you've never taken it badly when someone's said that. Nobody takes that stuff well from rivals.
