Default Paul Rhoads' hot seat is apparently a dumpster on fire

8 fumbles in one game? I didn't know that was possible.

I don't know if a win in WVA would save him at this point. Hoping he keeps his job, because the replacement coaching talent can only go up (to UNI's detriment).

That last minute and a half of gametime was comedy.

ISU gets the ball back, up by 7 with 1:31 on the game clock, and KSU with only 1 timeout left.

they could have pretty much run out the clock by kneeling down 3 times and then maybe having a player running around for a couple seconds on 4th down.

but no, they attempt to run it, lose a fumble, give up a quick game-tying KSU touchdown, then give up another fumble on the first play after the ensuing kickoff, which sets up a KSU gamewinning FG.
insane.

I'll preface this by writing that as a dual UNI/ISU fan with a rooting interest in ISU football that only Iowa State can lose a game like that. Only the Cyclones. That's one of those situations where a team has a 90% chance to win a game in that situation with that little time left, and naturally ISU finds a way to lose it.

Even the most ardent defenders of Rhoads on CycloneFanatic.com are now calling for his dismissal. Needs to happen in this point IMO.

Same coaching staff that didn't know the down/distance during their Okie State meltdown.

Their win expectancy was 99.2%.

ISU's problem is that their next hire probably won't be an upgrade.

Hope they keep Rhoads. We have games in 2016 and 2017 to win.

In all seriousness though, ISU needs to Fire Rhoads asap. With the changing landscape of college football, it could exponentially hurt ISU if they are cut from the BCS conferences for football.

I nominate Mangino & Polini as co-head coaches. It would be epic.

Wasn't Rhodes a genius a mere two or three seasons ago? Has he gotten worse, or is something else going on in Amesville?

You really only do reply to other posters regarding this topic. Give it a rest. You have your point of view and other posters have their own. No need to hash it out on every single thread. Just it let it go.

Yes, Mangino is a classless twit. And Iowa State has a better offense without him than it did with him in control. Mangino is a very small man in a ginormous, fat body.

I'm curious what type of expectations ISU fans have. What's your the definition of an acceptable season?

If my team was historically one of the worst (if not the worst) BCS programs in the entire country, I would probably be happy with a bowl birth every 5 years and a bowl win every 10. Do ISU fans legitimately expect their team to have a winning season every year and get frequent bowl invites?

And no, I'm not trolling here. I just see the constant coaching carrousel in Ames and wonder if maybe the common denominator isn't what ISU fans think it is.

There are 128 FBS teams and 78 spots. They should be able to make a bowl at least 1/3 years. It's almost to the point of 2/3 of FBS teams making it and there was talk of possibly starting to take 5-7 record teams to fill spots. It's WAY easier to make a bowl these days and Rhoads couldn't get the job done. The Big 12 isn't as good as a lot of people think. He had at least 3 games where better coaching could have won this year including the choke job yesterday. His early success was probably mostly due to Chizik's recruits.

Oh, FYI, I'm NOT an ISU fan by any stretch.....

is it really a coaching carousel?
McCarney was head coach for 12 years there.
Chizik was there only 2 seasons, but he wasn't fired, he just took another job (and I don't think anyone is going to turn down the Auburn job to stay at Iowa State).
This was Rhoades' 7th season there.

Most fans are expecting 6 wins/season. Which could have been hit this season, even with one of the toughest schedules in the nation.
Horrible coaching decisions cost ISU the Toledo, Okie St, and KSU games. Win those three games and ISU is sitting at 6 wins. Win two of them and they are playing for 6 wins next weekend at WVU.

And if you're happy with a bowl birth every 5 years and a bowl win every decade, then I'm glad you aren't ISU's AD. Even Rhoads made it to 3 bowls in 7 years with a win, and that got him fired. ISU has the facilities, fan support, and money to win 6-7 games/year. It just depends how much they are willing to spend.

As is too often the case with coaching firings that are supposed to instantly change everything, I can't help but wonder how much of this was a premature temper tantrum because of one, horribly lost game.

That's likely what this is all about.

Have to admit, I thought Rhodes would be the man to move them up. Not local and I really don't pay much attention, but if it can be done at KSU, Baylor, and TCU it is possible at ISU. Not saying they'll be league contenders on a regular basis, but six or seven wins should be realistic. Their recent upgrades should help but there are a lot of openings out there, likely have to take a chance on an up and comer.

Actually 3, and that was this season alone.
Let's not forget that he only won 5 games total in the previous 2 seasons.
JP and the fanbase gave Rhoads as much time as possible to get the job done. Everybody really wanted him to succeed at ISU. This was definitely not a rash decision based on 1 game.

The Cyclones will continue to struggle at recruiting. No one wants to freeze in Ames when Texas will do. ISU has made the facility upgrades to have six win seasons. Agreed, probably will have to take a chance on a young offensive coordinator.

Umm, yeah, this was a knee jerk reaction to yesterday's game. Try the final straw after three terrible years record wise and a series of questionable coaching decisions. You shouldn't comment if you don't follow things closer than that. Just adds to your reputation and you wonder why.

Just remember Ban is the one who wanted Coach Jake fired for losing a Sweet 16 game. That is the first and only time since he's emerged from the womb that a coach has ever deserved to be fired.
