You're hard pressed to find a Cyclone fan that isn't excited about the man behind the football program: Coach Paul Rhoads.
We're closing in on the final regular season games of year two of Rhoads' tenure leading the program and he's already notched signature roads wins at Nebraska and Texas as well as won a bowl game against a BCS conference opponent.
For all the stuff that Rhoads has accomplished in the last year he was woefully lacking one thing: a website. Coach is likely not much of an internet guy (he once referred to "Facepage" in a press conference) and, like most Iowans, is probably too humble to promote himself.
So we did it for him. My buddies Travis & Brent and I (okay most Travis at this point) created CoachPaulRhoads.com as an unofficial fan site for Coach. It features some of his YouTube stardom (ESPN talking heads refer to his postgame speeches in Lincoln and Austin as the reason why kids get into football) as well as some basic statistics and the ability to leave a note for coach.
