    He didn't lose to UNI and NDSU until 2013. He lost to KU his first year when Mangino was still there and they still had a pulse, then beat them the next 4 years in a row.

    Which leads me to the 2014 game at KU. Which is when I was ready to see him go.

    More than aware, just extolling the low lights of the entirety of the tenure.

    Just the way it read it made it seem like you were saying you wanted him gone in 2010 for those reasons.

    First four years of Rhoads was defined by missed opportunities. Some disappointments, but nothing worth canning him over. And some nice wins (@Neb, @TX, OSU)

    Then the last 3 years they stunk it up with no courtesy flush. Wanted him gone after 2014, but glad things worked out the way they did with Campbell.

    Rhoads best team had an SRS of 5.40 (the 2012 team that went 6-7 and lost to Tulsa in the rematch in, well, Memphis, which seems to be a thing of ours).

    By that same metric, that was the 27th best team in school history (between 1895 and 2018, with the rankings somehow dating back that far somehow).

    I loved Rhoads at first, but the results were quickly lacking.

    Campbell's team last year was the 19th best team in school history by this metric (relative to the rest of college football). The year before was 3rd.

    So my hot take...

    The senior Lazard/Lanning team was better than the 2018 DM/Hakeem team.

    Who gives a damn about country bumpkins. The worst thing about Iowa State is the M/F ratio.

    There are a lot of lovesick puppies at Iowa State. Not that I would know about that.

    Here's one that is going to earn me a lot of hate:

    Great Plains pizza is overrated. I was never that impressed with it.

    You have to get away from the thick crust, dude. The potato crust is worth the trip.

    The closing of Peoples was a huge loss to Campustown. It hasn't been replaced and may never be.

    This is not an unpopular take, it's a fact.
