    paul rhodes already better than danny mac??!!

    a co-worker of mine (huge cyclone fan and alum) and i were goin back and fourth today and he made a comment that cpr is right now a better head coach than dan mac ever was, i have always been a mac fan and think what he did for isu was great, so i was just wondering if the whole fanbase feels this way or my co-worker is just a nutball?

    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Because the OP is a hawkeye fan, and he is starting a thread about his in-state rival?

    CPR is undefeated. Dan isn't.

    In all honesty, I think CPR comes across as more of a coach than Dan did. Dan did his best to sugarcoat things and use the hell out of the spin machine. CPR just kinda tells how it is. CPR has arguably as good of a staff as any of McCarney's, however, strictly coaching, we don't know yet.

    Because the OP knows that whatever ISU fans post on here the three headed monster of DJK, THH, and GJ will lurk until they find a poster they don't like and then start a big ******* match. This is the typical bait and switch game that the trolls run all the time.

    Far too early to tell... potential for doing good and what has been done are two very different things.

    Right. We should at least go ahead and make some bisonburgers before starting into this one. Maybe even get a couple of seasons under CPR's belt first.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I agree, but Dan could get a team fired up like no other, I think some forget that and forget how huge that was in some games.

    That seems a lot more reasonable. Some folks just don't really comprehend reality.

    He also knew some amazing way to help us find ways to win games we had no business losing. He knew how to occasionally fire them up, but when it came down to some defining games, we just couldn't find a way to get it done.

    Re: paul rhodes already better than danny mac??!!

    I loved Mac but was one who agreed it was time for him to go. That said, CPR hasn't won a game yet, and hasn't been to or won a bowl game yet. Even though we've been bad for a few years now, its still not even close to the rebuilding job that Mac inherited.

    So, the obvious answer is that CPR's grade is incomplete. I would be shocked if he doesn't succeed here. But Mac has to get the nod, if I have to vote right now this minute.

    Impossible to even make any statement about how good CPR is.

    I would say you could maybe make some comparison after year 3.
