    I like how people are now absolutely HATING on Rhoads' extension, but it's exactly what the fanbase wanted just a few years back. How many meltdown threads were there worrying about Rhoads leaving because he was such a hot coach. brought ISU from the depths of despair up to being a a halfway decent team. Feel free to be ****** at Rhoads for a variety of reasons(recruiting, game planning, on field behavior), but bashing on his contract is pretty stupid considering how many Cyclone fans were very happy that we were able to keep him at the time. How quickly perceptions change.

    The Rhoads extension is exactly what fans wanted.

    If only we waited a year.

    Delay the SEZ and spend the $$ on buyout.

    No decision involving that kind of money for that long is going to make EVERYONE happy.

    I don't think the issue is recruiting, does NDSU or UNI out recruit us? No they just play disciplined football. It's discipline and it's hard to teach it when your coach can't even control himself on the sideline or in press conferences. Discipline is horrid.

    Yeah, I'm not sure how you instill discipline in your team when you don't have any yourself? Rhoads unfortunately reminds me of Fran McCaffrey.

    We don't even need an AD. Let's just do what the fans want!!

    We can start a poll on CF on every major decision to be made.

    Pollard gets a pass because he does what the common fan wants? That seems beyond silly. He's making a ton of money to be really good at things like hiring and extending the contract of the football coach in the most beneficial manner for the University.

    He certainly pooped all over this one.

    Pollard doesn't get extension that season.

    Paul Rhoads leaves for another school.

    Fans blow up we lose Paul Rhoads.

    Fans love whoever JP hires.

    Whoever JP hires has 3 wins last year and loses by 20 to NDSU opening day.

    Fans wonder what would've been had JP given Rhoads an extension.

    It doesn't matter who the coach was last year OR this year, the talent is just that ******. And it isn't getting better.

    I don't think everyone wanted it. Several of us expressed displeasure in terms of dollars and length. Seemed excessive to many.

    Isn't Rhoads getting paid less than our basketball coach? And fans were complaining about how much he was getting paid? No wonder we can't get a good coach here.

    Who pays the athletic department budget and by extension the head coach and AD salaries? The fans. Fan/booster sentiment(via merchandise and ticket purchasing) weighs huge on the mind of all ADs, not just ISU. If the AD makes a decision the fans like, chances are they'll get more pumped up for games, and buy more ISU merchandise. That's the way of the world my friend.

    Rhoads is the lowest paid coach in the Big 12. Yes even less than Charlie Weis. It stands to reason that we're likely going to get one of the worst records in the big 12, no?
