You’ve got to feel sorry for incoming Iowa State football coach Paul Rhoads. He inherits a team that avoided the three best Big XII teams (Texas, Oklahoma, Texas Tech)… and still went 0-8 in conference play. When we say they suck, we mean it: Iowa State sucks. So what’s their big plan to turn this ship around and bring the glory back to Cyclone Nation*??? Open tryouts!
We’re not sure why Iowa State’s doing this. ISU draws most of its students from the state of Iowa, where the level of talent is already pretty low–and that’s before all the schools in state pick over the talent. Like some ag tech kid is going to walk onto the field and run a 4.3 out of nowhere? Like the next Brett Favre is slaving away in a computer lab? Come on. Marky Mark’s not walking through that door!
