    I'll be patient and I sure as hell won't turn on him after one bad year. Give me a break

    Re: Are you Excited about the Hire?

    The more I read about the guy, the more I like him and the more excited I am for the 09 season. Im still nervous, but after the press conference, I think this guy might be exactly what ISU needs to grow and turn that corner.

    This is exactly what I was thinking. I realize it takes a little more to be a good coach. But when you have a guy that wants to be here, he is gonna give it all he has to fullfill that goal for himself and for Cyclone Nation. This guy sounds down to earth I love it.

It always just felt Jamie tried hard to sell Chiz to us because he was unsure how the marriage would work. I love how this search was conducted, and I love how he's being introduced. Jamie obviously feels confident in this hire and for good reason. We don't need the smoke and mirrors party introduction, let's just let Paul come in here, do his work, and support him as Cyclone faithful.
    Solid post! Welcome aboard!

    This would have been a nice post to give some rep to, but I've overdone it.

    I thought this would be a fun thread to resurrect. The day Cyclone Football changed forever.

    Re: Are you Excited about the Hire?

    I didn't look to see if I posted in this thread and I don't know if I was "Excited" but I said for a long time, what ISU needed was a guy who had a tie to Iowa as a state. A guy who felt at home when he was here and success would keep him happy.

    "Extremely excited! In a few years, we will look back at Dec. 20, 2008, as the day our program turned the corner!"--Cloneaholic, the day that Rhoads was hired. Kind of eerie

    Re: Are you Excited about the Hire?

    I remember when people were concerned with the way his hat fit on his head and the concerns about his public speaking. The speaking one is one I especially love now.

    My favorite part is everyone spelling his name Rhodes.
