Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports: What’s Happened to Iowa State?
Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports joins Jeff Thurn on Thursday's edition of Overtime.
Dodd and Thurn breakdown the first weekend of the college football season, and preview this weekend's slate of games. Listen to their full interview right here:
After North Dakota State beat Iowa State last weekend in Ames, Thurn asks Dodd what has gone wrong over the last 18 months?
"Well, first of all I don't why Iowa State is playing North Dakota State. Clearly, the Big 12 has to stop scheduling them or allow them into the conference. What's happened to them? I mean they haven't been nationally relevant since about the Seneca Wallace days to be brutally honest. I like what Paul Rhoads has done. He had those upsets...but the consistency hasn't been there. A lot of injuries. They are playing in a really, really good conference, where they have to play everybody. There's not years you miss Texas, Oklahoma. That's tough for teams like Iowa State and now finding out TCU is the same way. They are playing up in class. So, this is kind of been the history of Iowa State. They were serviceable in the 1970's and 1980's, but as time went on, they got lapped a little bit."
