    Spring Practice??

    Because I live so far away now and don't know many more cyclones on the team I was wondering how the team is looking/how the fans like Coach Rhoads?

    First time on anything like this, so hopefully I can get filled-in with everything in the great state of Iowa....miss it!

    You were one of my favorites man, congrats! Others on here that know more i'm sure will be able to tell you more about Coach Rhoads and the players! Things should be getting back to what they were like under Mac.

    I have high hopes for Rhoads. What has impressed me most about Rhoads is the staff he brought in and his passion. If you look at the coaches that have been successful at ISU (Fennelly, McCarney, etc) they have been passionate coaches that have been able to inspire their team to do great things.

    Re: Spring Practice??

    Austin, great to see you around here. You were certainly one of the class acts when you wore a Cyclone uniform. Your drive to help the team succeed at all costs is greatly missed.

    Coach Rhoads seems to understand what ISU is all about and is cut from the same cloth as Coach McCarney. Hopefully his success matches that and even surpasses it. He has assembled a heck of a staff that should bring good results with it in the next few years. Unfortunately, I doubt certain parts of that staff (Herman) will remain intact, but if that is the case it means we probably had some successful years. I am very excited to see where we go because it looks like we have the talent and the coaching staff that might finally match up to lead us to some new heights.

    Re: Spring Practice??

    My initial takes on Coach Rhodes are all very positive.

    First he seems like the kind of coach that knows the team is what makes him successful, not the other way around, (see Chizik).

    To retain as many players and recruits as he did speaks volumes about him and the coaching staff he's assembled.

    I also think it's very important that we have a defensive coordinator with as much experience as ours. He's obviously seen just about everything their is to see, so adjustments to various offensive schemes with available players should be one of his strong suits. Some of Mac's best teams weren't neccesarily stellar on offense, but a solid defense kept us in a lot of games long enough to give us a chance to win. With the key personel we have on offense, if we get that this year, we could be much better than some people expect.

    Sorry, my posts can be a little lenghthy, but I'm nothing if not thorough.

    Finally, welcome former Cyclone Flynn, it is an honor to have you among our ranks!! Congrats on your marriage and first child, nothing completes you like the love of family!! Hope to hear from soon and often.

    Re: Spring Practice??

    To echo other's sentiments around here, welcome aboard Austin! You were definitely one of the my favorite Cyclones as well. Not many guys would accept a position change the way you did, and go on to excel at their new position.

    For the record, you got ****ed by the refs during that Nebraska game your senior year... Everyone knows that was a touchdown.

    But yeah, it sounds so far like Coach Rhoads is making a positive impression on a lot of people. We've only lost one player so far, and it sounds like a lot of key guys are big fans of his.

    Re: Spring Practice??

    I'm really excited about the team and the new coaching staff. I think we have some really solid players coming back in several positions, but we're a little weak on our depth in others.

    Welcome aboard! If you haven't had the fan message board experience before, just take everything in with the attitude and toughness that you always displayed on the field. Certain posters can be critical and unappreciative at times.

    The most impressive thing about CPR is that I cannot find one person or source throughout his career as a coach that has anything but glowing remarks for the man.
