    Rhoads' Style

    I didn't see this anywhere. Anyone know what style offense/defense Rhoads wants to implement? I know that some of that will be based on the coordinator's he hires, but in general he has to have a philosophy.

    I only caught part of the press conference and I heard him say he wants a physical team, but that could mean anything. I think another former coach said the same thing.

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    I wonder if he'll implement a SEC style (smashmouth, defense first) or a BIG 12 style of play (spread).

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    Sounds to me like a bend, but don't break defensive philosophy.

    Nobody quite knows on offense. Think it will really depend who he hires to be a offensive coordinator.

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    His comment that he hopes to make defenses "cover not only the length, but the width of the field" makes me expect he's looking into a spread offense.

    Or the triple option......

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    He was very vague about what sort of offense he plans to run. I would suspect he's going to put a lot of that responsibility on the O coordinator.

    With the crop of receivers we have, it would be a shame not to run the spread in some incarnation, though.

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    I think most of the schools he has been at have had similar style offenses. Pitt and Auburn are similar and ISU, when he was here, also had a similar format. I wouldn't be surprise to see a return of a pre Seneca, Dan McCarney era style.

    Half back dives 8 straight times? or a draw on third and long?

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    So I just listened to the press conference and it definitely sounds like we are going to be running the spread.

    The draw on third and long is ISU tradition. I remember that Walden did it also. I didn't check in enough on the Criner years, but I think it's in the contracts somewhere. He must've called it.

    Re: Rhoads' Style

    Paraphrasing from his halftime speech

    I will promise you three things:

    1) Our teams will be intelligent, we will not beat ourselves
    2) We will be passionate
    3) We will be physical-we will hit you coming off the bus

    I think it was the same as his press conference speech, but don't forget:

    1) We will never quit. We will give you all we have for 60 minutes.

    2) We will restore the pride in Cyclone football.

    He's a convincing speaker. Can't wait to see if we can back it up!

    He's said this three different times now. And I got to thinking... WE are the ones who they'll first see coming off the bus.
