dumb asses by ST00PSMYASS on 09-10-2014
So it seems like the people of Ames are finally figuring out that this Rhoads guy is kind of bad at his job. I'm hearing some criticise him. Finally.
Don't be fooled. They only say that the week of the Iowa game. Psychologists call it "reaction formation."
Wait. I've read about that. Isn't that when a person reduces their anxiety by expressing the opposite of what they are truly feeling?
Yep. They want and need for Rhoads to be successful to make them feel good. But, they also know expressing public support for him makes them sound like they're insane. So they acquiesce in criticism of him so they don't sound like they should be in a straight jacket.
Wow. That might be the best psychoanalysis of Cyclone fans that I've ever heard.
Although, it might be that they're just dumb asses.
