How does Iowa State conclude the worst season in the Paul Rhoads era? With perhaps the most exciting game, winning 52-44 in triple overtime at West Virginia, coming back from a 31-7 deficit.
The Cyclones (3-9) battled back with a 54-yard touchdown run on a read-option from Grant Rohach then a short Rohach strike to Quenton Bundrage to cut the score to 31-14 midway through the second quarter.
Kenneth Lynn started in place of Tribune.
If the report is correct, and Rhoads held Tribune out as a disciplinary reason, it's bogus. Rhoads might have his own policies in place, but Tribune is a player who needs all the experience he can get, as he'll be the only returning starter in the secondary next season.
Meanwhile, defensive tackle David Irving continues to play despite the expectation he'll enter a plea deal with Story County after his mid-November arrest for domestic assault, simple assault. Irving missed a game.
