    You have got to be kidding me....I counted 76 "you knows" in a Gene Chizik press conference one time. I'm not kidding - he sounded like one of the players rather than a head coach.

    I'm guessing that was emotion getting the better of him. Chizik's sharpness could also be seen as emotional detachment.

    I will give you some of the message was very similar but the emotion was on a completely different level. I will join most of the others and say he impressed me big time!

    Re: Official Rhoads Press Conference Thread

    That was pretty compelling.

    Rhoads is obviously a guy that cares, is passionate and the players, if they're open minded, will run through fire for.

    I thought it interesting that JP mentioned that Rhoads and his wife came into the ISU athletic offices just to visit with JP and talk football and ISU.

    This to me shows that he wanted the job even back then, but it also proves something else. He wants to be at ISU for all the right reasons.

    Color me cardinal and gold. For Paul Rhoads has me completely sold.

    Hello ticket renewal.

    Wow, did he call Les Miles for interview tips? Cracked me up. I'm surprised he didn't conclude with "and have a nice day" while making a pistol with one hand.

    How many days till Sept 3rd? I'm too lazy to count.



    “One day we’ll be in here celebrating a Big 12 championship,” Rhoads said. “That I can promise you.”

    "I hope to coach here until I retire," Hoiberg said.

    You didn't think he radiated confidence? what press conference were you watching? Even Pollard talked about his comprehensive plan for ISU football. He was very confident and did a great job of expressing his desired to challenge his student-athletes to succeed. We had a coach that showed no emotion. That got us 5 wins in 2 years. I'll take passion over disinterest any day.

    Wow, I guess that having passion and emotion isn't allowed huh

    He radiated all kinds of self-confidence and the players will respond to his passion. Terrible post
