    Re: Transcript: Rhoads 8-30 Press Conference

    A couple of quotes (of many) that I loved.

    "To answer your question, yeah I think that TB and Leonard are both poised to have excellent junior campaigns, as they should be. Anytime that you have been playing that long, you are in a program that’s building block is developing players, I think that they should be in that position going into their junior year."

    That one reinforces that point that he EXPECTS his players to get better.

    " If I can’t maintain the focus of my football team for whoever we play in our first game then the administration should look twice about having me in this chair."

    I like that quote for so many reasons. He has a lot of the same coach speak as other coaches, but it all seems so much more genuine with CPR.

    Can't wait for Thursday.

    Wonderfully non-Chizik-esque

    Rhoads does such a great job with these interviews. He is such a straight-shooter. He is the anti-Chizik. Chizik seemed to work so hard to say as absolutely little as possible in these situations. You actually know where things stand with Rhoads. It isnít really a secret that we are thin at linebacker, so say so. Rather than being on our guard to try to hide things, it seems that our players and coaches are doing a much better job of thinking (and talking) real football.

    It sounds like CPR must think we have the DBs to do some press coverage this year. I really like this. Lets rough up the other teams WRs and grab them so they can't get off the line, push them off their routes. There were a number of teams that did this to ISU the last couple of years and it really worked well for them. Plus they almost never got called for it.

    Re: Transcript: Rhoads 8-30 Press Conference

    This may be a stupid question, but how many minutes/games can a player play in on season and still redshirt? I was just wondering in case we wanted to redshirt some of our players that may see the field Thursday night.

    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)
