The more I read about the guy, the more I like him and the more excited I am for the 09 season. Im still nervous, but after the press conference, I think this guy might be exactly what ISU needs to grow and turn that corner.
I thought this would be a fun thread to resurrect. The day Cyclone Football changed forever.
3 bowl games in 4 years. I'm so happy!
I just voted yes because I wasn't a member when this was started :spinny:
I didn't look to see if I posted in this thread and I don't know if I was "Excited" but I said for a long time, what ISU needed was a guy who had a tie to Iowa as a state. A guy who felt at home when he was here and success would keep him happy.
"Extremely excited! In a few years, we will look back at Dec. 20, 2008, as the day our program turned the corner!"--Cloneaholic, the day that Rhoads was hired. Kind of eerie
I remember when people were concerned with the way his hat fit on his head and the concerns about his public speaking. The speaking one is one I especially love now.
My favorite part is everyone spelling his name Rhodes.
I'd do anything for Rhoads that includes a huge donation increase we go 7-5 this year for sure. I'm eating crow and its good
the key is taking the next step
6 wins and a low level bowl are going to get old after another year or two
mac was close and its still crazy to think he led us to a 9 win season
