    I have to wonder

    If Majors or Bruce had been asked by Pitt, Tenn or Ohio State to leave Ames after only two years (and little success) would they have done the same thing chiz did and go to an established power job??

    Re: I have to wonder

    The answer is yes, they would! And would be crazy not to (leave that is. I don't begrudge Chiz that). Majors and Bruce were excellent, excellent coaches

    Does that make you feel better, or worse?

    And I guess I better clarify my statement. Check to see what Pittsburgh did before Majors got there. Ohio State already was an established power, but Bruce did great things there -- except the one year they lost THREE freaking games and the spoiled fan base and boosters went nuts and fired Bruce.

    My bad, OSU lost four games Bruce's final year.

    You would and it might be, if you this wasn't yet another example of you obsessing on the same topic for weeks.

    You are never going to convince us that what he did was right. Its not about him leaving! Its about how he did it.

    Yup, and the runup to him leaving didnt help either. Remember that the whole 'firmly entrenched' thing came after radio reports about him talking to his friends about how bad he thought this job was and how he regretted coming here.

    I dont have any problem with him actually leaving. If he'd left on good terms, a lot more ISU fans mightve been cheering for Auburn (aside from the cam newton thing)

    I have to wonder: why does it bother you that people justifiably dislike Chizik?
