    Meet the Coaches Night

    Did anyone here go to meet the coaches night? I had a blast and the food was awesome. I really liked Rhoads' story about how Jeff Woody got his scholarship. It gave me quite a chuckle. The numbers about graduation rates and rankings were pretty impressive too, even though they may have been "spun" a bit to look better.

    It was 4th and 1 at the 5 yard line. They handed the ball off to Woody and AJ Klein met him 2 yards behind the line. He burst through Klein and than was met by O'Connell at the line of scrimmage. He fought him off and got the first down.

    Coach Bleil screamed, "that a boy Woody, that's what we pay ya for!!"

    Rhoads turned to him and yelled, "we don't pay him anything...he's a walk-on!"

    And they gave him a scholly the next day

    It was a good time. I ate with Bill and his wife. His wife is really nice and knows her ISU sports.

    Re: Meet the Coaches Night

    I loved it when Rhoads said this about the defense.

    "Defense is pretty young but talented. I like to compare them to a new puppy. Sometimes you just love that puppy...and other times you want to roll up a DSM Register and give it a smack. No pun intended of course!"

    sounds like our best linebacker and a saftey need to step up and make a play.

    I thought it was a pretty good night, Rhoads seemed really fired up to hit someone in another jersey color.


    John Walters is my hero

    That was my first thought too. Congrats Woody- just wish it was the 2nd team defense you were making look bad!
