    This quote says it all for me!!

    Chizik continued his season-opening press conference by saying the last time he was this pumped for a game was the 2006 Rose Bowl, when he was a defensive coordinator for Texas.

    Im so stinking fired up, Chizik said. I know that Thursday night, itll be hard to contain me.


    Strap on the pads Gene! Lets get it on!

    Between hearing this and watching 300 this weekend, it makes me want to go out clothesline one of my co-workers.

    I am not sure how he does it. I think we need a CF intervention. We could all meet up at his place and take his computer away. I am sure MrsIsuFan22 would like to have him around once and a while.

    Re: This quote says it all for me!!

    Two things I loved about Chizik's first Game-Week presser:

    1.) His first words when he sat down in front of the reporters:

    "Alright... who's taking the first shot?"

    2.) After the last question, he just got up and walked out. Like he has better things to do. Like coach a football team.

    None of the "Thanks a lot, guys. Great to see you all. Tremendous, tremendous questions today from all of you. I'm really, really pleased with your effort. How are all of your kids?" that we are used to seeing.

    The point is not to bag on Mac. I'm just saying I liked the determination, focus, and "I don't give a crap about what anyone else thinks" attitude that Chizik brings.

    Gene is a very refreshing change from McCarney. He is here to win football games, not brag about his past accomplishments or build up our opponent as the best team on the planet. He is here to win, period, not be the media's friends. I also guarantee you that Chizik will never utter the words, "we won the second half."

    Unless of course we had a crappy first half, then came out and played really well and won. That's the only time I could imagine it, anyways.
