Based on the information you provided, I'm guessing that your
jobs are trying to start, but running into a problem.  So the
jobs spend a brief moment in "R" (Running), but immediately fail
and return to "I" (Idle).  Condor keeps retrying, hoping the
error is transient.

Check your user log (the file you specified with
"log=/path/to/file" in your submit file).  I suspect you'll find
a series of announcements that the job started, then
announcements that it ran into problems.  Hopefully it will even
give you specific details on what went wrong.

One possibility is that you didn't specify file transfer, so
Condor is assuming your files are available via a shared file
system on all of your machines.  If this isn't true, Condor will
fail to start your job.
