    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Isufan22 gave me and so many others so much crap last year for questioning Rhoads and the direction of the program. I guess he finally sees the truth.

    We've certainly never seen an opposing coach out-adjust CPR.

    It's never happened before.

    Boom! Well said.

    Does anyone here expect Chris and/or his staff to rag on the coaches and the players? I think we all saw what happened today. It is inexcusable.

    As Brent said, analysis is not the same as making excuses. I'm also betting CW and staff have complained and are equally ****** about the outcome. But isn't their job to be whiny *******. We handle that fairly well. Everyone needs to vent and that's fine.

    Let's just remember, as Mr Gray suggests, we are all on the same team and we all want to see this team win.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    People just need to realize that CW is a homer. He gets paid to be. If the Clones stink and nobody cares about them anymore, then CW would be out of a job.

    So you really can't blame him for puckering up this pig of a program right now. It's in his best interest. And if he starts ripping on ISU football, then he risks losing his access possibly.

    So you can't really blame him. Just beware when you read articles describing how improved this team is and why you should get all excited that it could be a bit misleading, that's all.

    CW, along with Rhoads himself and other coaches, have said all summer and all week long that we will know what we need to know about this team by 3 pm today. Well, the team has spoken, and it's just more of the same crap.

    Hard for me to put any positive spin on what happened today. I don't see anything positive that can be built on from that mess. I mean, where do you even start? Nobody looked good except for the punter.

    "While various existing codes have some differences, most share common elements including the principles of—truthfulness,accuracy, objectivity, impartiality, fairness and public accountability—as these apply to the acquisition of newsworthy information and its subsequent dissemination to the public."

    I'm not saying that Chris is unethical. I'm saying your point is BS. The idea that a journalist has a "product to sell" is disgusting and I would hope, as a journalist, Chris


    CW is not a journalist. This ain't a presser for going to war in Iraq on cnn. It's a business, period.

    Have you called for him to be retained?

    Do you think he should continue as our coach?

    That's disenchanting. I hate the idea of him being a cog in the machine. I hope he doesn't feel like you do. It sounds like you're defending him but, honestly, I am.

    Taking this loss out on CW is bush league at best.

    Re: Chris Williams making excuses left and right

    Guys, I just want to say one thing. Jack and I do our best on that show. On days like today, trust me, it isn't a lot of fun. Just realize that my work on Cyclone Fanatic is separate to the Cyclone Radio Network. That is a whole different world than the one on here.

    Go ahead and criticize me all that you want. It is fine. I can take it. It is part of my job. All I can do is try my best and attempt to get better every day, and I will.

    Let's just try to not go at each other. That will only make a bad situation even worse.

    Thanks for listening.

    First issue is CW - must be fired for making excuses. Expect immediate improvement next week once CW's head rolls down Lincoln Way.

    Oh, sweet KU. I believe that 3 of the 5 wins the program has since Jake Knott went down are against Kansas. Without them, we just have squeakers over WVU and Tulsa.

    Somehow, Kansas can't handle our horizontal offense or leaderless defense.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
