    This x1000. I just don't understand everyone on this board. Have you not been paying attention? ISU ISN'T A FOOTBALL SCHOOL. Never has been, never will be. Was I disappointed today? Of course I was. Was I surprised? Absolutely not. And I'm not calling for anyone's head...it just is what it is. I've come to expect this. It makes the years we actually play well all that more exciting.

    Rhoads has gotten worst every year. The fact is UNI and NDSU have better programs. Hire Varley for crying out loud. The program would improve by leaps and bounds

    We suck. Always will. Even by ISU standards, if we match the best season we've ever had, (9-3) we still suck by other programs' standards. We will always suck by any practical standard. We will never be better than mediocre. You can be apathetic or you can care adamantly, it won't change anything. Just accept we will always suck and your life will be much more enjoyable. Learn how to have fun and care about a bad football team and you will hit the jackpot of life.

    I'm having a blast tonight with some friends despite the game. Tomorrow I'll still be defending the clones and looking forward to next weeks

    The worst part of today is the game being over early enough to come home and watch some other games, seeing what a competent football team looks like.

    Success? I'd take poor play.

    Who's Varley? If you mean UNI's coach, that'd be Farley. And he's a closet Hok, so he'd never take the job...

    Let me introduce you to Dan McCarney.

    That being said I want nothing to do with Farley.

    I'm now convinced the only hope for ISU fb is to move to start an indoor leage and play in Hilton.

    Of course, we'd probably curse the bball team.

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
    Exactly how i feel... But im only 36.

    Drop football. Turn JTS over to Reiman Gardens, throw a dome over it, and make it a botanical center. It's time to put that piece of real estate to good use.

    for crying out loud, this is our own stink. We had our a$$e$ kicked. nothing would suggest CPR should even be mentioned in the same breath as Kurt Fuuruntz
    Actually, they did almost lose. The refs blew a pi in the endzone, or UNI goes up 27-24 in the 4th quarter. The refs were actually terrible in that game, and UNI had the ball inside the iowa 40 in the last two minutes going for a posible tie.

    Sorry, that isn't dominating. You are wrong.

    You are right, this is our problem, but the worthless hawk trolls, and the "fans" that never show up unless something is wrong, do nothing to help the situation

    Ahh yes another mac first fan that thinks that enough time has passed that those of us who watched him lose over and over again with better teams will forget how putrid he was on the sidelines.

    I suppose it stands to reason they think it will work though, all the pr allowed people to ignore how he treated his first wife, and those restraining orders.
