    Re: Rhoads a better hire

    Christensen may have been a good hire, but he's still never gonna recruit to Wyoming, so it's not gonna matter.

    I gots my money on Dabo.

    Interesting. Most of these schools are mid-major.

    Re: Rhoads a better hire

    He didnt really call it a better hire. He called it a wash when compared to Chiznuts.


    NHL teams need to be added to the favorite teams section.

    I can see that, but if you read the article you can see that he calls it a wash. He could have flipped a coin to decide which one was better. I am not trying to defend Chizdouch nor am I saying Rhoads isn't better. All I am saying is this article is kinda of pointless if your trying to compare those two, because he is calling it a wash. That's all.

    Re: Rhoads a better hire

    Tim Griffin said it appears to be a wash because they are only ranked 1 apart. The list was actually put together by coaches hot seat.

    Re: Rhoads a better hire

    Is Rhoads a wash with the 13 spot? Is the 13 spot a wash with the 12... and so on. If so, are they all washes?

    I think these things are meaningless. Only the future knows.

    Re: Rhoads a better hire

    Rhoads is a better fit for Iowa State. That can't be argued. It's yet to be seen how well he can coach.
