We were all told this year's team was the fastest, most athletic team of the Rhoads era. We've been told for the last few years that Rhoads is the best coach ISU has ever had. Many made Sam Richardson out to be the best QB ever at ISU. I keep hearing about all this youth on the team. I keep hearing this is a rebuilding year. I keep hearing how recruiting is on a major upswing. Well I'm sick and tired of hearing that kind of talk EVERY year. I want results. It's always, "next year is the year we turn the corner" or "we're a young team" or "we have a lot of injuries" or "it's the refs fault" and on and on. I'm tired of it. Tired of all the excuses. If we're so fast and athletic, why are we getting blown out this bad? It made me SICK to look around at some "fans" laughing yesterday when we got down 21-0 and hearing things like, "this is the ISU I remember!" or "looks like our halftime happy hour will start early today!" And if recruiting is so great, why are we currently ranked LAST in the Big 12 in recruiting? And rebuilding year? Really? HA! It's embarrassing to hear people call this a rebuilding year after a 6-7 season. To me, the days of being impressed by locker room or postgame speeches are over. Rhoads has proven to us that he has passion and the players seem to like him. But now I want to see results on the field. I guess what I'm trying to say through this little hissy fit is that I'm feeling a little duped by all the "talk" I've been fed these last few years. Rant over.
