    Chizik's "intensity" wins quick converts at ISU

    I don't remember seeing this posted (if it was... Sorry!)

    • Iowa State: Freshmen reporting to ISU arrived to find the Bergstrom Indoor Facility converted into a small volcano, into which first-year coach Gene Chizik, seeking to set the tone for the intensity of his tenure, sacrificed virgin Alex Sandvig over the incoming wide receiver's protestations that he had made it to "third base" following last winter's 56th Annual West Des Moines Basket-Weaving Festival. "Valley High ******* are tough nuts to crack," agreed skeptical classmates, who left duly inspired for helmet fittings.
    It's from SundayMorningQB.com

    Here's the link if you want to read his take on the start of fall practice around the country (very funny)...

    Chizik uses ever tool available to him in order to get close with and get through to his players. Intensity, discipline, humor, tough love, etc.

    So far, he's passing the pop quiz. Will be interested to see how he does on exams, starting Thursday.
