    Isn't it great to have one of us

    for a head coach?!

    CPR loves Iowa State and he wants to win here; not at Auburn, not at Michigan.

    He is a true Cyclone!

    /agree

    If he can retain his current staff and keep picking up the kind of recruits we are right now, we are going to win a lot of football games.

    Everything just feels right with PR, his staff and philosophy towards building ISU into a consistent winner.

    Re: Isn't it great to have one of us

    I've learned to not get my hopes up too much, but it's hard with CPR as our coach.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    CPR's first press conference.... "We'll be a passionate football team that will bring pride back to the Cyclone nation."

    Sounds about right!

    Re: Isn't it great to have one of us

    Ever since CPR gave an interview this summer where he talked about walking beans and bailing hay growing up, I knew he would be successful. I just didn't think it would be this soon.

    I know this is from the Chizik era, but this always gives me goosebumps.

    I'm worried about his assistance jumping ship (I remember we had a few do that earlier in the yr). We need consistency to improve yr on yr.

    Re: Isn't it great to have one of us

    In terms of restoring pride to the Cyclone nation, is it fair to say that he's pulled that off already?

    Seriously, tell me that Cyclones won't be beating their chests all week after that one.


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

    We will be beating our chests and drums with Kottman leading the parade...all the way up Lincoln Ave.

    Erik you need to lose those credits and spend all week trying to get donations from the rest of us, so we'll be victorious next week too!


    Cyclone
    Iowa State became the Cyclones after they leveled Northwestern in 1895. As the Chicago Tribune (9/29/1895) noted:
    'Struck by a Cyclone
    It Comes from Iowa and Devastates Evanston Town'

    Re: Isn't it great to have one of us

    I've always thought CPR was a great hire -- and not just because I'm from Ankeny! Besides his obvious knowledge of the game, and how respected he is in the coaching ranks, and that he brought in great assistants -- what puts him over the top is his passion for ISU. Plus a basic all around great guy.

    What's great about this year is that aside from EIU, they've been in every game, and they're getting better week to week. This has to be coaching, Chizik's teams never adjusted and never got better.

    Re: Isn't it great to have one of us

    I love Coach Rhoads. I love a quote he had once about being a head coach. It went something like:

    '' I'm going to take all of the coaching philosophies I've seen and put them together to create my own to become a consistent head coach" I have no idea why I thought this quote was so cool...but his philosophy sticks here and I love it.

    Why don't I keep them and do the same thing?

    Trust me, I'll be here talking about how we have a real chance in College Station, too. Because we have a real chance to take a victory in College Station.
