    SOLD

    Wow. What a press conference.

    I love it when people realize their dreams, and being an Iowan, I always love it when people that really want to come home get that opportunity.

    That couldn't have been any better. I am sure that many of you are pretty darned excited about this, and you should be. I hope the man has a great deal of success, except for one Saturday a fall.

    Hopefully that Saturday is on a bye week.

    Thanks for having some class, Jon.

    Only, I'll just hate to see your hopes smashed that one Saturday next fall.

    With this guy's passion, anything is possible. I don't know the guy, but he makes you want to get to know him...he has the personality that makes you root for him right away.. Plus, he is an Iowan, and that always rates high in my book

    And it may take some time. But I think a guy like this, an Iowan, an Ankeny guy, he is going to get plenty of time to do the job. I said before anyone was hired, that the new coach couldn't fairly be judged until year four. At least, that is how I see it.

    As someone who was displaced to another state (guess where ) for a few years and recently returned, I agree completely.

    And in regards to your last post, Jon, if you want an opportunity to get to know Coach Rhoads better, you would be better off as a Cyclone fan . In fact, that holds true in many aspects.

    I agree Jon.

    While I enjoyed the GC hire, I expect this man not to stoop to the level we saw last week. Rhoads will put is in the right directions without stooping down and talking the low road. I am wild about this cat and am excyted for the future. The way JP stooped down like a bird of prey to pick this guy was fun to watch. Also they way JP didn't stoop and settle for a guy is amazing.

    Rhoads won't have to walk stooped but with his head and shoulders up straight.

    I didn't hear a stoop in voice... yep not one condescending word all night.

    -keep.
