Paul Rhoads Rant

October 4, 2013 by  

Paul Rhoads Rant, Iowa State Paul Rhoads was furious with officials after the Cyclones’ 31-30 loss to Texas on Thursday night and he let loose with a classic rant afterward.

The Cyclones had dominated much of the game, but Longhorns running back Case McCoy scored the game-winning touchdown on a 1-yard run after Johnathan Gray twice lost the ball after getting stopped short of the goal line. Twice, officials ruled Gray down by contact.

It was enough to infuriate a coach and what resulted was a rant reminiscent of Mike Gundy’s “I’m a man! I’m 40!” gem at Oklahoma State. With Rhoads, it wasn’t so much the words as the delivery:

“I’ve got the privilege as the head coach of this football program to face my players, win or lose, and look them in the eye and [say] how proud I am of the work they put forth, the effort they gave.”

He went on, his voice rising and becoming more emotional.
