    Gene Chizik's Message to the Fans

    I was just running through the Kent State presser and ran across this:

    Q: What’s the reaction to the 36,000 season tickets being sold?

    Chizik: Unbelievable. I just think that the passion and the excitement of the Iowa State people excites us. Those guys…you’d be surprised…they hear it and that will be what juices this thing up. That’s what we want to do…juice things up to the highest level and give these guys support. Our guys work hard and don’t think they don’t appreciate that…they know it…they hear it…they see it and they’ll see it Thursday night. It speaks volumes as to where this is headed. I told our football team that now they’ve got to go out there and give them a reason to buy them. They’re excited about it and I’m just thrilled to death that people are that fired up about what’s happening.

    Q: How big are the first three games at home?

    Chizik: It’s really big. One thing that I’d encourage our fans…I want them to be the loudest stadium in the Big 12. I don’t care…I want Jack Trice stadium to be the loudest in the Big 12 and I think that creates homefield advantage. You asked me if I think it’s important that the first three games are at home…absolutely 100%. I want to stress to everyone…I want this place to be juiced up. They bought 36,000 season tickets so there is a passion there…don’t hide it…let it out. I want there to be a passion in the stadium.


    Go Sssssssssyclones!

    The man likes his juice.


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    He's got a coin. Time for Tropicana or Welches to start sponsoring ISU?

    Well, juice is better than the cream...


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
    Maria Sharapova: Don't you beat up other guys for a living? I don't know how to answer this.

    Gene Chizik juices me up. I don't really get excited about stuff until it's right there on me... and football starts in about 48 hours.
