    Is it time for Wally to retire?

    I know he is a great FB mind, but the defense as a whole and the LBers that he coaches have been very suspect for the last 2 years. The DL play was not great today either, but you could see LBers running to the wrong place on both really long runs today.

    Stop. Everyone knew the defense would be bad this year. Young and inexperienced.

    The offense was supposed to be better. It is not.

    Re: Is it time for Wally to retire?

    I was going to post this but I limit myself to starting one thread per day.

    I realize we knew the next few years on defense would be suspect. It probably wouldn't have been a terrible idea to encourage him to retire at the end of next year and try and get a new guy to try and rebuild whatever this is.

    I still think he's a great defensive mind, but he won't ever have another good defense here at Iowa State before he retires.

    At least the D can stop our O. That was the preseason news that scared me the most.

    Yes he has failed at his job. The defense has been pathetic the last 2 years and it just keeps getting worse and worse.

    Re: Is it time for Wally to retire?

    No. He needs an offense that can generate more than 57 yds in a half. His defense spent the whole game on the field again. Rhoads has yet to field a consistent offense in his era.

    Re: Is it time for Wally to retire?

    Honestly I'm surprised he has lasted this long. When we hired him I thought he was just going to come in for 2 years and then hand the job to his son.


    Just Win.

    What a lame *** excuse. This excuse is running 2 years strong now.

    D looked awful in the first half. We're they too tired?

    Re: Is it time for Wally to retire?

    The defense is "young" and "inexperienced" every single year. So Wally gets a pass for some reason.

    And the offense stinks every year too, so Wally gets a pass for that as well.

    And Mangino will now get a pass too for a few years because we're learning a new offense.

    And if Wally and Mangino get passes, then Rhoads sure gets a pass too, right? I mean, c'mon.

    It's not like NDSU had a new head coach and tons of new starters today. If any team today had excuses for looking bad it was NDSU, not us.

    False. Gave up 2 big plays and that was it - nothing more. Mistakes were made, but first half defense was not awful at all.

    2nd half defense was pathetic. As was a stupid offensive performance of not even 60 total yards.

    Those 2 big plays were huge breakdowns for a horrible defense. Also I'm not excusing the offense. Both are totally unacceptable.
