How Paul Rhoads is preparing for the close confines of Kinnick Stadium

Paul Rhoads and Iowa State travel to Iowa on Saturday to take on their in state rival Hawkeyes. Rhoads spent the week brainstorming ways to simulate the close confines of Kinnick Stadium.

The close proximity to screaming Iowa fans while trying to make in game adjustments on the bench is pretty challenging for any staff, not to mention an in state rival.

Rhoads joked that he was pretty creative in order to simulate the environment during the week.

We bring strangers in off the street and let them stand there along sideline because that’s about what it’s like when you’re down there trying to make adjustments and changes.” 

Iowa and Iowa State will face off on the Big Ten Network tomorrow at 3:30. Both teams are coming in at 1-0.
