The Big 12 Conference held its media days for football on Monday and Tuesday in Dallas. During the sessions each of the Big 12 coaches spoke to the media about the upcoming season. In this RandHSports.com Q&A, we feature the comments of Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads.
COACH RHOADS: We’ve had a great summer. Our kids are now just finishing up their last week, their last week of academics, their last week of workouts before they’re going to have an opportunity for about a ten‑day break, a well‑earned and a healthy break coming up in front of them.
The bottom line coming out of this summer, coming out of this off‑season is we are a closer football team heading into 2015. Talent, experience, continuity, all very important, but if you don’t have that chemistry, you don’t have that closeness, you’re starting at a disadvantage.
