Yes this team is not good, but everyone needs to take a step back and calm down. I, like many others, am upset that this team is playing like this but we need to take a look at the entire picture. 1. We had some recruiting misses which has led to having to put an inexperienced team on the field. 2. We had some season/career ending injuries along with transfers that also led to having to play inexperienced players along with shifting players to positions that they have not played before. 3. Our offensive line has been terrible, but we have a brand new OL coach who implemented a completely new scheme. Add to this the insanely high number of injuries and has prevented any kind of chemistry from forming between the guys on the line. 4. Our starting QB has been injured since the first game of the season and hasn't been anywhere near healthy since so his productivity will be diminished. 5. You don't just lose two NFL linebackers and not have any kind of drop off especially with how much they did on our defense. We all knew that this was going to be a rough year whether we wanted to admit it or not and those that honestly thought that we would be able to go to a bowl game easily were only kidding themselves. Changes do need to be made but those who are calling for the entire coaching staff to be fired are delusional. We as a fan base have been spoiled by going to a bowl game in 3/4 years but at the first sign of adversity, people are ready to call for the entire staff's heads. A constant coaching carousel is not good for trying to have any progress (just ask Kansas how that is working). Also, that 3% that would cause Allen Lazard to not come to ISU. Firing Rhoads would be that 3% and you can guarantee that there would be several other recruits that would leave (and possibly some current players) if Rhoads were to be fired. This year sucks and there is no way that changes won't happen but I for one will still cheer on this team as I will always be a fan of the Cyclones. There is also no way that anybody can say that this team will not be better next year. They are gaining very valuable in game experience and that will pay off in the future. I apologize for the lengthy post, but I felt someone needed to say something.
