    Rhoads is on plan with recruiting...

    After visiting with Coach Rhoads in Minneapolis, I believe his recruiting is on plan. He told me we have to "cut some corners" to get to wins sooner, and I assume that means JUCO's to fill needs. The plan may or may not work, but it's his and he is going with it. I believe it will work.

    This isn't very detailed. Glad to know he has a plan and he's doing it. He is getting paid pretty well...

    ketel, be careful what you say, you could be soon labeled as an "insider" and subsequently be put squarely in mpls' crosshairs

    Yeah, but his head coaching experience is at the bottom of the Big 12 also... If you're at the bottom of the conference and making over $1 mil a year, you're doing OK.

    My point is that you don't get put into a situation unless you have a plan...

    Also, if things weren't going according to his plan, he'd still say they were, because football coaches are politicans as well....

    I agree we need to pick up some momentum on the field before recruiting good HS players will become realistic anyway. We need immediate help.

    Our record the past 3 years has been:

    2-10
    3-9
    4-8

    with 3 B12 wins during that span.

    Actually, I'm not hyping them up. But if you look at what got K State competitive in the early Snyder days, it was JUCOs. And I only know what I post.

    Holy buckts, that got me.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Plans are fluid. That's why it's always going according to plan.

    Re: Rhoads is on plan with recruiting...

    We just need to find the best players we can land, be they HS, Juco, or whatever. With our schedule the 2 years after this one, we could really use an influx of talent that is ready to step in and play immediately.

    Worst thing for the program is high school kids that don't pan out, and take up a scholarship for 5 years.

    Ketel doesn't claim to have connections; he isn't saying he's going to be a coach.

    The standards are different.

    Outside of being more specific, I'd have no issue with what he says...

    I'm 99% certain cyismydog was being sarcastic because of the flak he takes.

    Re: Rhoads is on plan with recruiting...

    Look at Rhoads options. He obviously wants to get win's on the board as soon as he can. We have a really tough schedule for the two years following this one. To be competitive, he needs to go after a mix of JUCO's for immediate help, at the same time he tries to build for the future. With the state of the program, Iowa State doesn't have four or five years to get competitive. The fans and budget won't take it. Thus Rhoads goes to the spread, a quick start, and fills immediate needs with JUCOs.
