    Coach Rhoads First Year

    1. More wins as a first year coach than any other previous ISU Football coach.
    2. More wins in his first year then the previous worthless coach had in his two years at ISU.
    3. Taking us to a bowl game in his first year. Has any other coach done that at ISU?
    4. First time our defense has held 3 league opponents to 10 points or fewer since 1965.
    5. Won at Nebraska for the first time since 1977.
    6. Has taken a rag tag team from the gutter to going to bowl in his first year.

    Yes it's early, but I think we have got a winner on our hands!

    Re: Coach Rhoads First Year

    I think that what he and Wally have done with our defense ought to cinch the coach of the year thing. That job is amazing!


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.

    #3 isn't a done deal yet....but I still think that some of the JP haters need to come out of the woodwork to eat some crow. Monty, where are you?

    It should read 10 points OR under and then it would be CU, Nebraska, and Baylor.

    Can't we be invited to a bowl game outside of the Big 12 bowl package, that is, we don't necessarily have to rely on the Big 12 bowl alignments?

    I thought that's what the radio guys were saying yesterday, that there are other conferences that won't be able to provide teams per their agreements with bowl committees, thus opening the door to us perhaps.

    Maybe I misunderstand what the radio fellows were saying. . . .
