    Re: FYI -- Quotes from Army Coach Rich Ellerson's Press Conference

    (Ref.: Iowa State’s pre-game tribute to Army)
    “I think it speaks well of Iowa State. These are extraordinary young men as representatives of the Corps of Cadets in particular, and the other service academies in general. It’s appropriate, and I applaud them for recognizing their uniqueness and the challenges that these young men have taken on that go way beyond the game of football. Then, if they would just carry that sense of sportsmanship over in to when we are trying to check plays at the scrimmage that would really be a plus. That would be good stuff, if they really mean it. We’ll see how far that goes.”

    Dude it's still a football game. Nice try though.

    Kinda what I was thinking. We just need to go out and play a solid, honest game. The rest will take care of itself.

    Agreed, I hope we whip em, but I always respect a team in one of the service academies

    is it possible he was joking....i can't believe he was serious. do they not have a sarcasm pirate there?


    As far as depth goes though, the combination of White, Woodbury, Olaseni, Basabe, and Uthoff is much better than Niang, Ejim, Edozie, Gibson. Not because of the top 2, but because of the next 2 or 3. -DeanVogs

    Uh, yes, he was joking. I thought it was pretty obvious. This is not a man who is new to the profession, and he's very good with the press.

    (Ref.: Something to prove)
    “We have everything to prove. Right now, we’re 2-1 but records don’t mean anything until the end of the season. Going on the road and being able to perform as well as we’re able, especially in a big stadium like Iowa State, that’s important.”
    Nice to see that our stadium is "big".

    Are we really going to be able to beat the spread? I want to go all in but 10 points seems a little much? Thoughts?

    Yeah but in my pic he's speaking so I could plausibly throw in the sarcasm pirate, in your photo he's not speaking so it would have to look like he's doing sarcasm pirate via ventriloquism. And Rich Ellerson is no ventriloquist.

    Thus mine is more realistic.
