    2 Questions...

    1) Please give me the names of some great head coaches, past or present, in DI CFB that were born/raised in Iowa?2) Since Rhoads was born/raised in Iowa, I would like to know who he cheered for as he was growing up...ISU or the hawks?Anyone that can help with these questions...I greatly appreciate it. Thanks.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    why? will these affect whether you think PB will succeed here or not, because if so that is crazy.

    Re: 2 Questions...

    Answer to Q2: Does it matter? With the emotion he showed yesterday for getting the job, I couldn't care if he cheered for the Hawkeyes growing up, because he sure isn't one now!

    Re: 2 Questions...

    These are two questions that I am honestly curious to know the answer to. With respect to Q1, I can't think of any but I freely admit that I really don't know. With respect to Q2, I read several posts on here yesterday from people that have had some sort of contact with his family...live next door, coached by his father, etc...again I am curious...being a resident of Iowa until I was 23 years old, it was my experience that the vast majority of people either picked the Clones or the hawks to root for.

    I can tell you without question, Paul Rhoads grew up a Cyclone fan.

    Re: 2 Questions...

    Q1 is an interesting question as I would want to know whether there has ever been an opportunity like this to hire a successful coach at ISU with Iowa roots. I don't believe in the last 40 years there has been an opportunity like this.

    By successful, I am referring to his coaching as a DC at Pitt and Auburn

    Thanks...glad to hear it! As for the first question, either no one knows or there is no one...which means Rhoads will be the first great CFB head coach that was born/raised in Iowa.

    Re: 2 Questions...

    I think you're right - I can't think of a single D1 coach from Iowa.

    We've got a couple of MLB umpires - one pretty notorious for a blown call in the World Series.


    ISU fans are the greatest in the world. All they ask for is hope and the belief that we have a chance to win every time we step on the field - Johnny Majors (paraphrased)

    Ya gotta have the horses, man - Johnny Orr.

    Don't confuse hope for a plan.

    He coached at Iowa...I was asking about great CFB head coaches that were born/raised in Iowa and to this point no one can name one. I'm pretty sure Alvarez was not born/raised in Iowa.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.
