    Deadspin: Maybe the problem was you, Iowa State

    Maybe The Problem Was You, Iowa State

    Nice headline, with not one mention of Iowa State in the actual article.

    Why throw the cheap shot in there.

    If you haven't connected the dots, my title to the thread is reposting the Deadspin headline.

    Thought CF might be interested in seeing this jab. If you're not, move along. Good day, sir.

    I have yet to see anyone actually give credit to Chizik. This was a funny read on an SEC board. I only read the first page of it.

    I think his point is they did it to get attention. Just like you posting it in your thread title got attention.

    Not a shot, just the truth.

    I love this quote:
    What has he done besides win a bowl game, beat Texas for the first time ever, and beat Nebraska?

    Lot of love for Paul Rhoads on that page

    I enjoyed the response to the guy that said nobody would be successful at ISU, when the Tennessee fan threw in this question:


    What has he done besides win a bowl game, beat Texas for the first time ever, and beat Nebraska?

    I think people are noticing this guy, so that's nice (in one way).

    Re: Deadspin: Maybe the problem was you, Iowa State

    Taking the source into consideration...maybe the problem was that Chiz hired a bunch of nobody besties to be his coaches? Or maybe, he always knew the Auburn job was in his hip pocket and he wasn't concerned with doing what was best for ISU as much as he was preparing and planning for the Auburn job? (Wild speculation, I know, but the thought has entered my mind).

    That kind of surprises me, as I would have figured most people confuse us with the Squawks outside of the state of Iowa. Glad to see that there is some recognition out there from followers of the game that we have a coach worth keeping in Ames!

    The problem actually is Iowa State. Iowa State doesn't buy players. End of story.
