    How many times

    could this team have folded?

    -Last year when their "firmly entreched" coach leaves them they could have been discouraged, left, or just given up hope on their football career
    -When we get stomped by Iowa, they could have folded up for the season
    -When we lose a hard fought game to KSU the way they did they could have quit
    -When we lose our second consecutive heartbreaker to Kansas the way we did.
    -When we go to Lincoln without maybe our two best players and leaders, people are sick, people are dinged

    In none of these cases did this team let down. Each and every week they come back. This is on the staff. I think this staff brings the heart out of these guys and that gives them a chance every game.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    It's just an amazing win for a lot of different reasons. This is one of those stories books are written about.

    Does this remind anyone else of the DirtyThirty?

    This is a Iowa State team that may very well be talked about for ages and it's not because they are the best team ISU has ever had. In fact I would guess in 20 years people won't hardly remember the 2005 team and how close they came to winning 10 games, but they will remember this team.

    Re: How many times

    I have preached to my employees over and over that ISU just needs to 'learn how to win' the close games...


    but I didn't believe we could do it on those last two Husker drives

    Re: How many times

    "how many times"... is this coach going to take us to new places unlike our football program has ever seen? The future looks so bright for our program right now. For the first time in a few years, I cannot wait for the next week to come to see how this team will keep surprising everyone. we're not world beaters, but this coach and this team will take on anybody and give them all they can handle. I love it!!

    Re: How many times

    3 things: Rhoads #1 academically in his Ankeny class
    Herman a Mensa member
    Burnham successful & experienced

    Maybe one of the best staff's we have had since the Johnny Majors years.

    I think the staff Rhoads has put together is the #1 reason for our success so far this year.
