    His press conference today is straight ticking me off.

    "Paul, what do you want Iowa State fans to take away from this season?"

    "Iowa State fans are intelligent, they know we are young and we are injured, I hope the fans have enjoyed the competitiveness and compassion of our football team and have seen improvement that will catapult us into 2014."

    Seriously CPR? You just got 40k+ fans buying season tickets and as "intelligent" as we are about football, we dont want to use excuses for being a laughing stock. I see no improvement and if thats the attitude you want me to have then dont expect me to buy tickets next year.

    Watch the press conference today maybe I'm overreacting and just frustrated but he walks in so casually and says the same thing each week. "So excited about this prep this week and cant wait to see the results Saturday." SHUT UP you have gotten spanked each week as coaches and your plans have failed miserably. If you are so excited and passionate then show it with your work not your dumb coach speak.

    Yeah, I was a bit taken aback by just tossing out excuses and saying that if were smart fans we'd take it in stride.

    Apparently you didn't listen to his postgame press conference. Or, are you just looking for excuses to criticize?

    Are you related to any of the coaches? I have never seen anyone with such blind fervent faith in a coaching staff.

    Not sure what he can say today besides "we are more disappointed then the fans are with the results"

    He isn't going to say what he is actually feeling.

    Anyone still think this team isn't as bad as '03 or '08? On paper they're quickly becoming identical. Different RB's taking the carries every game, musical QB's, our leading RB and WR's will have under 500 yards and we won't have a QB pass for 2,000. I do not attribute all of THAT to injuries, because in most cases, you could take the top 3 leaders in each statistical category and not come up with a cumulative 1,000 yard receiver or rusher, much less a 2,500 yard QB.

    He was basically saying as fans who have invested thousands of dollars and tons of time into this program that we should just take this losing in stride and know that it may pay off in 2014 and that there isn't anything they can do about this year besides try and be competitive. He basically has admitted defeat and wants us fans to take it in stride. stupid stupid stupid.

    He also said we don't have a #1 QB at this school and it'll be wide open between our 5 QBs in January. This program is sinking fast. Cannot see any reason why anyone would want to come here other than they dont have other BCS offers and a supportive fan base. If I'm a QB/WR/etc. I look at ISU and see it as a place that my career will die before it even starts. Put Richardson at a school with capable coaches and I bet he is having a better year. No way those guys aren't that talented, I'm beginning to think its mainly on coaching and prep.

    Good thing you aren't good enough to be recruited. And good thing our current commits aren't as dumb as you.

    I love how anyone who doesn't want to stone Mess to death and run Paul out of town on a rail must be related to them. Ridiculous.

    There isn't one thing that Coach could say right now that would make a lot of people happy. What did you want him to do crawl on stage and start to cry. If he did that most people on here would say he is soft and the team is a reflection of that.

    How naive do you have to be to believe there is "no pressure" on Coach Rhoads?

    I think you might need a break from Cyclone Fanatic for awhile. For the sake of your health and ours as well.

    Just stop.

    Apparently the first 4 years had nothing to do with coaching either? It was all luck and "Chizik's players", right?

    Does it ever get old ******** all the time?

    Yes. I've probably given him 100 likes in the last 2 months.

    Seriously what could he say.... We ******* suck donkey ****??? He's trying to stay positive. If he comes out and blames coaches and players, what good will that do??? The players will give up even more, and coaches won't give a rip.

    If he came out and basically said what you want him to say, then who in their right mind would want to play for a coach throwing everyone under the bus.

    He did say everything will get evaluated including coaching... What more could he say??
