    Re: World-Herald ISU Article

    This wristband situation probably took all of 10 seconds in practice. Some stupid reporter asked him about it after practice and that took all of 5 seconds to respond.

    Does anyone think this is getting to be a little overblown?

    Also, for our friends who think this is "micromanaging", is it really different than the coach deciding what color shoes they wear or if they get names on the back of their jerseys? Or is that micromanaging too?

    Re: World-Herald ISU Article

    Ive been waiting for Rhoades to finally screw up like this.

    I got a mortgage for my house back in '02. Got a steep cliff right behind it that overlooks a sea of glass tables and porcupines. Thanks to HCPR, I now have a reason to jump off that cliff.

    Give me jimlad, or give me death!

    YES. I don't care that much, one way or the other. Every coach has their own little "tics", if you will. Rhoads isn't a fan of wrist bands. They serve little function and can be a safety hazard. It's just a stupid fashion trend, and he's putting the kabosh on it. If it says anything it's that he has little tolerance for silly bull ****.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    "I think that's something for sixth graders and fourth graders," Rhoads said. "I don't think wristbands do anything to make you a better football player, so we stripped that down early."

    I LOVE THIS! I think it's GREAT! Make the kids act like men. How many guys do you see throw on a couple wrist bands at the Y and look like a complete idiot. This is great.

    YOU SHOULD sweat the small stuff. It makes you a more disciplined team which makes you better. This is great. How come you're not criticizing the Yankees for making their players cut their hair and shave their face? This is great. Gets everyone on the same page and cuts out that pre-madonna B.S.

    Now if we could just get coaches around the country to come together on banning those stupid eye-black patches that guys use to pimp their area codes.

    The best is the guys that wear them for night games.

    No, I'd say you have issues with others expressing their opinion. Good luck with that - I'm sure everyone else you will meet in life will agree with you.

    I'd say just about everyone who has posted in this thread has an issue with your opinion on the matter... find something else to complain about... and no... I only have a problem with people who go around picking fights on message boards... them and Hawkeye fans...
