AMES, Iowa - Barring a major upset, the Cyclones will finish winless in the Big 12. Five wins in two seasons has fans questioning the leader of the Cyclones football team. Despite uneasy fans, Athletic Director Jamie Pollard has Paul Rhoads' back.

"I look forward to continuing that journey with coach Rhoads and hopefully getting there," Pollard said on the weekly Iowa State radio call-in show.

Rhoads responded to those comments today at his weekly press conference.

    Some football programs are destined to forever be mid-level in their conference. Clone fans love their coach and their team, so hey…let him do his best, make the game day experience as fun as you can, stop worrying about winning seasons and call it a day. There’s nothing wrong with being a basketball school.

    Has to be depressing to know there is no hope on the horizon. He’s had more than enough time to have his players, coaches and plans in place. He’s shown his ideas in those areas are not what it takes to win.

      To Dean-
      I fail to see the love or feel the love you are mentioning. I have pictures of the attendance in the stadium at half time and again at the end of the game this season for all games—I am a donor and season ticket holder . The tailgating the last two games—-check with Hy Vee and ask how busy they were . All I hear is how long do we have to endure this losing and why did we not put performance clauses in Rhodes contract . Can we expect a .500 season in my lifetime ? Are the expectations of this program so low that the donations will start to decline before action is taken ? I am thankful for the Mayor and ISU Basketball –I do not have to listen to excuses any longer on our football program . J
