    ISU featured in ESPN's "What We Learned" column

    Some good national press here:

    Big 12

    Iowa State's defensive resiliency has been stunning. Coach Paul Rhoads has helped the Cyclones respond after being gashed for 69 points in back-to-back losses to Texas A&M and Oklahoma State. The Cyclones rebounded to limit Colorado to its season-low in points and put them into bowl eligibility for the first time since 2005. ISU limited the sputtering Buffaloes to three points on three trips inside the 10-yard line. The Cyclones might not have talent to match many Big 12 teams, but they play exceedingly hard. With a team coached by Rhoads, you wouldn't expect anything else.
    I couldn't agree more. Haven't seen an ISU team play with this much heart in a while.

    combine the upgrade in talent that thread desires with the upgrade in heart PR has brought, and things could get really fun.

    That little blurb is awesome. This is how a coach starts to build an identity for himself and his team outside of the state of Iowa.
