    CPR is one of the coolest guys around

    I was at a gala tonight (well, technically it was yesterday) for LLS (Leukemia & Lymphoma Society) at Praire Meadows, and Coach Rhoads was the honorary chair.

    It was the first time I have ever had a chance to talk to him, and he seemed honestly interested in the conversation.

    He is a great speaker, but more importantly an awesome, genuine guy.

    I wonder if anyone else on here attended the event. It was a great time, for a great cause, and Coach made me extremely proud to be a Cyclone.

    Re: CPR is one of the coolest guys around

    I was at the LLS Gala, too, and was able to spend some time with CPR as well (we were seated at the table just behind his). He is very impressive in person and I agree with you 100% - he was genuinely interested in talking to people who came up to him. My wife and I even got a nice pic with Mr. and Mrs. CPR.

    Class act. We're lucky to have him.

    Yes, yes, we are. It is a fantastic feeling to have someone leading our team with the attitude and character he has.


    This is very important:

    I agree, but- Please. Please remember this IF the team struggles to win a bit this fall. I'm cautiously optimistic about the upcoming season, but trying to be realistic at the same time...




    Thank you to Kagavi & amestoplease for the sweet designs!

    CPR went to and won a bowl in his first year. He has some goodwill banked...at least two 4-8 type seasons before people start complaining. Not that I think 4-8 will happen. I think that we'll be 6-6 or better the next two years before really taking off.
