    I'm about 30 feet from the sidelines,
    Brackens shouldn't play another minute at ISU based on the lack of respect for Rhoads.

    Care to elaborate? Did he, heaven forbid, talk back to him?

    Somewhat of a common situation on this team from what I understand.

    It appears to me the team gave up after the UT loss. I'm sure the locker room is in shambles. That's on CPR

    This, wouldn't be surprised if this has become a trend this year. With a few exceptions, you can tell there isn't the same amount of heart we are used to seeing from both the players and coaches, especially since UT

    I got a text saying, "Brackens letting CPR have it."

    I'll call him to find out what he saw. Must've been pretty obvious if everyone in the area saw it.

    He's not the only one.

    After losses Rhoads works them into the ground and then is shocked when they come out during gameday looking sluggish and beat down.

    So Rhoads is so bad, a crappy player is yelling at him, not even a good one (if we even have one of those).

    If a player is yelling at him on the sidelines and it's obvious to everyone in the stands, that's as much on the player as it is the coach.

    The best part of this is that I don't even really care. I'm drunk.

    I think he was probably yelling at CPR because he must have told Brakens to just stand in the endzone and wait for the QB to meet him there.

    Brackens is an extremely intelligent, nice young kid in the few meetings I've had with him. I guess I'd be shocked if true.

    That being said, defensive players can't be happy with the offensive play. They give up 17 to a pretty good offense and we score 7 points offensively, from our backup QB, set up by a fake punt

    Emotions are volatile, especially during hard times. I wouldn't read too much into this other than Brackens obviously has a lot of passion for the game.

    Love this double standard. When someone like Dez Bryant shows emotion on the sidelines it's because he's a punk but when another players does the same exact thing he's applauded for showing passion.

    I've heard he's a great kid, which makes this more troublesome if true.

    CPR may have lost this team.

    Heck, I almost hope he did. I'd probably prefer that to thinking that everyone is on board and clicking on all cylinders.

    I'd have a hard time blaming Brackens when CPR himself is often not in control of his emotions.

    Did you see him spike the headset today?
