Good story in the Cedar Rapids Gazette about how the Cyclones are responding to coach Paul Rhoads' "tough love." It's hard not to read through the lines, like this quote from running back Alexander Robinson.
"What you see is what you get with Coach Rhoads," Robinson said. "He's a very energetic person and I think that's carried over to the guys on the team."
So, coach Chizik wasn't?
As excited as everyone is about Rhoads' first year, Cyclone Nation needs to temper expectations.
"You don't go 0-8 and lose 10 in a row and have all the answers," Rhoads said. "There's something else that needs to be done; there's a better way of doing things. They are working very hard to achieve that."
Rhoads' presser is a must hear. Really get the impression that Rhoads knows what he's doing.
