    What players were at the conference?

    Anyone able to make it to the game tonight (definitely didn't trust the weather from Cedar Rapids), let us know who all is there with the new coach.

    was there just overhead lighting or did they have some special accent lighting set up. Also, were the lapel pins they all had metal or coated with plastic or enamel.

    I thought it was back or white shoes that we usually argued about...

    There were quite a few people there. Coach had a large amount of family members there including his dad and of course his wife and kids. Some former players also. I saw Austen Arnaud and a couple other players that I didn't recognize.

    I would have been concerned if AA wasn't there. Thanks for the update!

    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    By the way, I think you can say one proud papa is Coach Rhoad's dad. He was looking very proud and happy and rightfully so.

    This is pretty awesome... I'm happy for them, and I don't even know them.

    This whole situation has the potential to be one helluva story, both for ISU and the Rhoads family.

    He's also a guy I could see staying here until he retires.

    Re: What players were at the conference?

    Feel pretty good about the hire after seeing the press conference. Can tell he's committed to ISU. The issue with Gene could have been he was more name then substance. He was the wow... but believed he was a "wow" and was higher than the program.

    Assuming all the players stay, which I think they will, then we can turn this around next year with a winning season. How hugh would that be! Rhoads would then become a "WOW" and the national attention while Gene is blowing smoke down at Auburn would only further ignite this fire.

    We made a very very good exchange in the last 10 days. Our team just got a lot better! Pollard is doing an awesome job. We may be building on something great here. I'm excited!
