    Alot of people are saying that Rhoads might take a different job in the near future. Namely a job from Pitt. What do you think?

    Bigger hit: Lattimer on Gilbert to essentially clinch the win over Texas --or-- Cy on sideline reporter Jim Knox?

    I have to strongly second this question... It's almost habitual for a coach with any success here to go somewhere else. I have to believe CPR wants to be the Tom Osborne of ISU. Any more insight would be appreciated. Thanx!

    Is there some sort of medication that could be applied to the majority of members of this board? It seems like this board has either extreme highs, or the lowest of lows, no in between. Cant we just be positive all the time? Constructive criticism, not craziness?

    There's two trains leaving Ames. One is going to Austin, TX at 60 mph and leaves at noon. The other is traveling to Lincoln, NE at 45 mph and leaves at 1:15. How far will each train get before Paul Rhoads picks them up and smashes them Godzilla-style?

    Am I the only one that finds the coaches call in show unbearable to listen to?

    Do you think Paul Rhoads hit his father coming out of the womb?

    No, and it's not because of the coach.

    This is my first (ever) question to you: 4th Qtr, Texas just scored 2 TD in a row, only down by 1 TD and we don't convert on 3rd down and I. Now Texas offense takes over with 1 min remaining. Let's say you are betting on this game. Do you bet on Texas to tie or potentially win? If not, why not? If yes, well we all know why... After all, we are Cyclone fans! (we have seen a 20-0 lead over a #17 KU team diminish in the second half in a hurry and AT HOME).

    Did we really just go to Austin and beat Texas? I was there but I still think I might be dreaming. Can you verify this for me. Thanks

    What is Rhoads doing in practice this week to make sure we beat KU decisively? ISU must have an impact game and not be hungover from UT.

    aaaaand if we told you it was a girl who laid that hit on Jim Knox, would you believe it?

    In all seriousness, who is the last person on the offense you'd want to have to try to tackle, and who is the last person on the defense you want trying to tackle you?

    Will KU become the next bottom dweller in the conference?
    Will MO beat NU?

    If we need one yard for a big first down (especially to clinch a game), why do we run AA out of the shotgun rather than putting him under center and having him fall forward?

    Tom Herman called a great game but I just don't understand that logic when we need one yard.

    Believe me, I wasn't insinuating that it was. I just imagine John and Coach sitting there listening to this crap and rolling their eyes.

    I try to listen once in awhile and am quickly reminded why I don't listen.
