Paul Rhoads Gives Emotional Speech Following Iowa State’s Win Over OSU (Video)

paul rhoads post-game speechWhat could you possibly say to your football team following an upset victory over the second-ranked team in the nation that would actually be able to get them even more fired up than they were following the final whistle?

Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads provides us with the answer to that question following his Cyclones’ 37-31 victory over Oklahoma State, as he steered clear of all the usual cliches and gave his team an emotional post-game speech before the locker room erupted and everyone began singing along to the Cyclones Fight Song.

In case you were wondering, Rhoads did manage to keep the language clean, which is more than we could say about other coaches in the past (yes Ron Washington, we’re looking at you).

Here is a look at Rhoads’ post-game speech.

O we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
And may her colors ever fly.
Yes, we will fight with might for Iowa State,
With a will to do or die,
Rah! Rah! Rah!
Loyal sons forever true,
And we will fight the battle through.
And when we hit that line we’ll hit it hard
ev’ry yard for I.S.U.

Hat Tip – [The Score]
