    BIG THANKS TO COACH FERENTZ (please don't bury this in Instate Rivals)

    I just wanted to send out a public Thank You to Coach. Like I said before, I am helping out with an Art Auction to benefit the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation (info below). As part of the auction, I have kinda been gathering some local celebrity art. In the past I had seen coaches draw up plays on a canvas then sign it and they normally go for pretty big bucks. Anyhow, I sent blank canvases to Coach Rhoads, McDermott, Ferentz and Lickliter...

    Today I got an email from an administrative assistant with Iowa Football letting me know that they sent the canvas back today via UPS. I have also received some great submissions from Coach Rhoads and Coach McDermott. I wanted to give Coach Ferentz an equal public thank you, even if they are the enemy . We are very fortunate to have some really compassionate coaches in this State.


    65 Roses: A Night To Breathe Easy

    Friday, September 25th 7pm
    Des Moines Social Club, Downtown Des Moines
    A night of art, music, food and a chance to help those with Cystic Fibrosis breathe easier.

    DJ Kelix Williams
    DJ Raj
    THE SHADOW
    Complimentary food by Dos Rios.
    Cash bar.

    A silent auction featuring art works of the evening will be the focus of the event as we raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    Tickets available at the door for $15

    Adding tomorrows every day expresses the mission—and results—of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s steadfast efforts to extend the length and quality of life for people with cystic fibrosis (CF).

    CF presents daily challenges for approximately 30,000 Americans. But life with the disease is far different today than it was 50, 30, or even 10 years ago.

    Perhaps the best evidence that many people with cystic fibrosis are living longer is the fact that more than 40 percent of the CF patient population is now age 18 or older (your peer group).

    Recently developed therapies and specialized care have enabled people with CF to gain greater control over their disease. So, children and adults are not only living longer, but also living a better quality of life.

    65 Roses" is what some children with cystic fibrosis (CF) call their disease because the words are much easier for them to pronounce.

    Mary G. Weiss became a volunteer for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation in 1965 after learning that her three little boys had CF. Her duty was to call every civic club, social and service organization seeking financial support for CF research. Mary's 4-year-old son, Richard, listened closely to his mother as she made each call.

    After several calls, Richard came into the room and told his Mom, "I know what you are working for." Mary was dumbstruck because Richard did not know what she was doing, nor did he know that he had cystic fibrosis. With some trepidation, Mary asked, "What am I working for, Richard?" He answered, "You are working for 65 Roses." Mary was speechless.
    He could not see the tears running down Mary's cheeks as she stammered, "Yes Richard, I'm working for 65 Roses."

    Since 1965, the term "65 Roses" has been used by children of all ages to describe their disease. But, making it easier to say does not make CF any easier to live with. The "65 Roses" story has captured the hearts and emotions of all who have heard it. The rose, appropriately the ancient symbol of love, has become a symbol of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

    Kirk Ferentz did something good? That's unpossible.

    Seriously: classy move by Coach Ferentz--and by you, cybsball20, for involving him and for publicly thanking him on a Cyclone board.

    After I (and others) called him out in the McDermott thread, it's only fair to thank the man....

    Nice move!

    Surprised you didn't send one to Coach Fennelly, as I bet he would do something for you.

    Was it their double secret formation that you can copy and send to Coach Rhoads?

    No, for better use, scan it and email it to Penn State

    Seriously, it is good to see all coaches supporting these efforts.

    Have you got it yet? And has Lick returned his? If he didn't, that would surprise me.

    Nice job by all these coaches.

    (We should get CyHawk points for getting ours back first! )

    I didn't realize that many of us were on this board... let alone 30,000 of us that visit daily. And yes, it can be challenging to discuss our team in the years that our teams don't perform well. But I think it makes us stronger.

    In all seriousness though, it's a great cause and great to see the coaches take the time to contribute to it!

    Lick has plays? I just thought they passed the ball around until there was 1 second left on the shot clock and then tossed up a 3 pointer...

    by the way, I agree good job by all. Then again I'm not surprised. They all seem to care about the community.
