    This is one of the best posts today. For all of the money the alum are dropping into the program and the upgrades we are providing, the on-field product we are getting feels like a slap in the face. Rhoads definitely isn't the one for the job and he has never done anything special with this program outside of that Okie State win in 2011.

    Re: Your Reaction Sucks!

    How many more years of fans trying to rationalize our failures and mock fans who want more?

    How many more years of being asked to be "all in" before some sort of non-6-6 bowl game?

    I think we are easily the first to lose in the fashion we did. I have never seen a program from a power 5 conference lose to an FBS school by 20 and give up 500+ yards. Your rationality seems stupid.

    Rhoads has been here 6 years. If the defense is young it is entirely his doing. Are you all Obama supporters that still think the problems are all Bush's after 6 years? This is entirely his doing and entirely his fault so shut it.

    Remember that there are always those people out there that think we are "bad fans" because we are tired of getting embarrassed despite how much this fanbase has stuck by their team. I, for one, am sick of this and can't stand the fans who continue to accept being a bottom feeder.

    BUT, please don't attack Paul Rhoads. Don't call for his job. The dude is freaking awesome for this university and will eventually strike gold. Besides, he's the best man for the job - PERIOD.

    The offense sucked when Farniok went down. No doubt - much like last season.
    Give ManGenius time to install his offense.

    We have a football program that is historically one of the worst of all time. This has been and will continue to change during CPR's legacy. We lost to probably the greatest FCS school of all time. I'm sick of these armagedeon reactions from fair weather, insecure fans who can't stand by ISU for better or worse. You sound like Hok fans. And you make me sick.

    Also, Chris Williams shall never be criticized for his post game comments. This dude is spot on.
    We all have our levels of being disturbed. Mine is the fact that for 2 years in a row now, we don't look like we belonged on the field with an FCS school. No matter how good of a program it is, they have no business blowing out a power 5 conference school.

    Congrats to them, they deserved this win and then some.

    Not sure what bothers me more though, this kind of loss or the fans who still accept this as "Well, we are ISU, what do you expect?"

    Myself, I expect better.

    It was CSU.
    Beat KU 6-3. You know what happened to KU's coach?
    The only legitimate win was a come from behind fluke against KSU. 2 years prior a better KSU team basically had the same kind of snoozfest against a bad Eastern Kentucky team. The Wizard, we do not have.

    Yes the bad losses have been bad but don't take away from the good wins like they meant nothing.

    Kansas and Colorado haven't been close to bowl games in years, while Minnesota was the laughing stock of Power conference football for a while. Not exactly great company to be in.

    Re: Your Reaction Sucks!

    I don't think it'll do us any good to fire CPR, but I'm also not exactly singing his praises. If he were fired tomorrow, I don't think I'd characterize his tenure as a success.

    Did capitalizing awesome not get my point across? I guess I could write an essay on how CPR didn't build off that win?

    And this isn't last year's Bison team. You know, the one that won three straight titles? Yeah, they had to replace all of that talent and the coaches that built them up. Also, I wouldn't exactly compare what they did to KSU to what this year's team did to ISU.

    While this is true, think about Kansas State last year. Arguably one of the best coaches in college football ever, a guy that they dedicated a statue to in front of their stadium before the game..... yeah, same thing happened to them too.

    I hope I don't sound cocky when I say that (I didn't come here to talk ****), what I am saying is that NDSU has a good program. One that knows it's strengths & weaknesses and really doesn't deviate too far from the norm from year to year. We also are very good at adjusting to opposing offenses.

    I wish ISU the best going forward. And my point of this thread was don't let this game deflate you, use it as motivation.... both as fans and players. Yeah, you should be asking your coach what they will do different for the rest of the season. But don't throw away the season based on a single loss.... regardless of if the team you lost to is Division 1 FCS NDSU or Division 1 FBS Alabama.
