    Sweet. Hopefully not mentoring him in a Deion Sanders/Dez Bryant kind of way though!

    Re: Ellis Hobbs mentoring Leonard Johnson

    Wasn't Ellis the one that kept listing his highschool in his lineup introduction, instead of ISU. Hopefully, he is making up for it with some solid mentoring. And hopefully he can start displaying a little more pride in ISU. It seems that he cares with this article, but he has to see how it was hurtful to snub us like that. Seems a little silly and actions speak louder than words, but I really wish he would correct that past.

    I think the previous staff may have done their fair share of damage to the athletic department's relationship with former players. It sounds like Rhoads and company are working to repair that.

    Fantastic! I hear of things like this at other universities but never with Iowa State. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come.

    Re: Ellis Hobbs mentoring Leonard Johnson

    Now we need Rubin to work with our DT's. Supposedly he is doing quite well in Cleveland, and they are really happy with his progress.

    Isn't Seneca a Brown now too? And couldn't he offer some pointers to our QB's, along with Sage?

    This has been blown out of proportion. He has listed his High School, as have other NFL players. He has also said "Iowa State University" and gone so far as to say "The up and coming Iowa State University". There was even an article written about him during his time in New England and the picture included was of Ellis wears an Iowa State t-shirt in the Pat's locker room.


    "I'm proud to lead this program and this team in whatever we do. Whether it's a community service project, or through practice or winning a bowl game, but you don't do that without the kids believing and being all in, and going out there and accomplishing all [of] the goals and expectations that we set." - Coach Paul Rhoads

    Don't know why people care about this. You can't have pride in both your high school and college? It's not a dis to ISU to like your high school.

    Thanks for beating me to the punch on posting this. People who come on here to bash Ellis for saying his high school have no idea how much he likes Iowa State and how the NFL intro system works. Those are filmed at the beginning of the season and used for the whole year. If you say it one time, that's it and it's done with.

    Can we stop with this. Please. He is mentoring a current player. I would think that and the fact he came back to get his degree here would be enough to say he is proud to have been here. Besides that he can say whichever school he wants. Who cares.

    Yes, he is. I wouldn't be surprised if he is the guy by the end of the season. The problem will be that he has no support from Wide Recievers. I think it says something that his former head coach went and got him.
