    Thought on Auburn & Chizik

    I was very excited when Chizik came to ISU and felt betrayed when he left, but a year later and hindsight to take advantage of, I really think that it was the best move for both Chizik and ISU, he gets his dream job and we get a coach that has had one of the best starts to a career in school history.

    My actual question is why Chizik has taken a middle of the pack SEC team and overachieved while he underachieved at ISU?

    IMO, becuase at ISU you have to coach players up, at Auburn, you just sit back and let the athletes play and the Chiz is an expert at the latter

    Coordinators. The answer to your question is coordinators.

    The man is a stellar recruiter, but he did a good job of that here at ISU. The thing I don't get is how that personality of his translates into recruiting. That part is the one I don't get. More power to him, but that's confusing.

    Its hard not to be good with Auburn. They bring in big time recruits no matter who the coach is.

    Agreed.
    Its called picking good assistants that actually know what they are doing.

    Gus Malzahn/Ted Roof vs. Robert McFarland/Wayne Bolt.

    That's like pre-1990 Tyson vs. anyone.

    Re: Thought on Auburn & Chizik

    Auburn has had talent every year for a while. He was brought into a pretty good situation in terms of the level of talent on the team, unlike at ISU. And as someone else said, he learned his lesson at ISU and brought in good coordinators instead of good friends.

    1. He had no clue what he was getting into here at ISU - how hard it can be to recruit, budget, budget, budget.

    2. Tradition / recruiting - while Chizik did a nice job of bringing in some kids - Auburn has a long history of tradition and he can bring kids in on their name alone, let alone the nicer living conditions.

    3. Money - he was able to go out and hire an excellent coaching staff - top shelf coordinators and they were in turn able to hire top shelf assistant coaches.

    Yep at Auburn he actually hired good coaches. At Iowa State he hired his old buddies.

    It really comes down to two things in my opinion:

    1. His staff & specifically his coordinators are MUCH different at Auburn than at IA State, which plays a tremendous part in the successes/failures at either school & their ability to 'coach up.'

    2. Location, Location, Location - southern school, in what could be considered the best football conference while amassing a fairly solid tradition over the years, just gonna attract a completely different player at Auburn than Ames.
