    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    I've seen some bad threads on this site but this might be up there with the worst. CW goes above and beyond to make this site what it is. To call him out on a day like this is pathetic and sad.

    It's just an excuse to go party and get drunk in a parking lot every few weekends each fall. Not much else than that.
    Oh i know all of that, i just meant it will be vicious on here. I agree with what you say and its why Rhoads has it made and isn't going anywhere. We love going to games and having fun and cheering on the team and the fanbase is growing and getting younger and we love CPR. As long as he gets one big win a year, gets to a bowl game every couple years and delivers an epic postgame speech, he's golden. Wins and losses don't really matter because we've experienced losing more than winning. Basketball is what we're serious about at the end of the day.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    I don't care to hear about injuries or ejections. Frankly, we should be better than an FCS team at basically every position and we are not. Looking at a long season filled with excuses and "waiting for development". We're in year 6 now of CPR, the time for all that has passed. If he's not winning by now, he's never going to. This **** show continues on all year and the rah rah Rhoads bandwagon is gonna be pretty empty come December.

    And I hate on Williams as much as the next guy, but what's he supposed to do, get on the radio and be like "yep, we blow, see ya next year folks"? That's a tough spot to do a live show after an abortion of a game like that.

    When we lose a bunch of seniors, it seems like all of the sudden we're having to rely on RS Freshmen or JUCO's to step up.

    We are not building good depth at all in this program.
    Ironically the most devout of the Rhoads defenders said that is exactly what he was doing.

    Not sure Farniok would have made that much of a difference - NDSU made adjustments after the first quarter and I don't think he would have made that much of a difference.

    LOL are you guys really calling out the guy that spends countless hours providing content for the site that you are all posting on right now? Be angry at the team/coaching staff not a sports writer.

    Either that, or this board is full of teenagers that haven't paid much attention to this program over the past few decades.

    That being said, there are no excuses needed. We lost to a three time national champion that has the longest winning streak in the history of FCS football. We didn't lose to a bad team. We lost to a good team that just happens to play at a lower level.

    Thanks for being level headed.

    Thanks for your input and page views, Doc.
    Chris, I quit reading this thread at this post so I'm not sure what all had been said, but I just want to say thank you. Thank you for your excellent coverage of Iowa State athletics through your outstanding journalistic abilities. Thank you for taking **** from idiots on your own forum who feel the need to bash you just because the team lost. Thank you for providing this forum free of charge so we all have a place to discuss Iowa State. You are a true Iowa State fan, unlike the idiots who seem to have taken over this board lately. I hope you don't let these people get to you, because you're one hell of a journalist and a better Cyclone fan than any of us on this board. Keep doing what you're doing.

    Same thing can be said when the almighty Mods dog on posters. But they are the protected ones that can't be called out.
