    Sigh...

    I am 37 years old. Been a kool aid drinker for years. Every year I go in thinking this is it...this is the 10 win season we've all been waiting for. I thought today would be close but was SURE we would win. I have never been more apathetic after one game than I am right now. I have been behind Rhoads from the get go but I can't defend him anymore. Not saying I am giving up but to me, it's time to put up or shut up and I hate saying that. But you just do NOT lose to an FBS team this far into your tenure let alone get flat out drilled at home. You just don't. Not even to a team that had won 24 straight. Not giving up 34 straight points and getting only 57 yards in the second half. I'm not even that upset and that shows apathy for me and it really sucks. I'll be there every week as I always am cheering the Cyclones but not expecting anything in terms of victories this year. Blah

    After 2 loses to FCS opponents, this has to be Rhoads last year. There is no excuse for it happening twice.

    It won't be his last year even if we go 0-12.
    Jamie will be able to sell a ridiculous amount of tickets next year on the new stadium alone.

    We couldn't afford to buy him out anyway...lol

    lets just gets some sleep and tackle tomorrow.

    I think the generalization of the lowly FCS is overplayed now. Winning 25 in a row is quite an achievement, and NDSU could beat a lot of FBS teams with their level of execution today. We still should not have lost by 20.

    Doesn't Mangino have a two year contract with Rhoads as our OC? I think Rhoads is here thru next year

    The only thing I would caution is who they have beaten in FCS.
    ISU
    Minny
    K-State (they are very juco heavy and don't play well the 1st 1-2 games of the season)
    KU when they really sucked.


    I would like to think if they played anyone that isn't in the bottom 1-2 of the league would beat them.

    Re: Sigh...

    Iowa today in year 14 of the KF era and a team some have predicted to sneak into the playoff this year nearly lost to an FCS team and one could argue a worse FCS team. Now Iowa won but UNI beat themselves they had 17 penalties for 120yds! I don't mean to be that guy that brings up Iowa but for comparison sakes. Don't get me wrong I'm pisssed and I think our team has regressed everywhere but losing to an FCS team that could beat 50-60% of all FBS teams isn't the end of the world.

    Caution is a better way to put it. They can play, and look good against lower level Power 5 teams. But honestly, just thinking about it for a moment, that is an amazing achievement for an FCS team. They keep stepping up to the plate and taking them down.

    A lot of good FBS teams were built on inferior talent and impeccable execution. Starts to show why the generalization that an FBS team should never ever lose to an FCS team is way overplayed.

    iowa didn't almost lose. They just didn't put them away. Let Johnson loose on 3 HUGE pass plays, but other than that the panthers had something like 50!yds rushing, and completed less than half of their passes.

    for crying out loud, this is our own stink. We had our ***** kicked. nothing would suggest CPR should even be mentioned in the same breath as Kurt Fuuruntz

    You just have to lower your expectations for football and jump on the Hoiberg train. It's the only way to stay sane as an ISU fan. Long term football success just isn't in the cards.
