    Chizik - alone?

    I was at the game last night in Toledo with two of my sons. We had a great time until the last 5 minutes. Anyways, I am not here to rip on how we blew the game or anything else. I noticed something I thought to be quite interesting. Coach Chizik spends most of the game by himself far away from the coaching staff and team. Is this typical for him? I thought it to be unique that when the ball was on one 30 yard line he was on the opposite end of the field. It seems like he has lots of trust in his coaching staff and let's them do their work. Any thoughts??

    Maybe he was daydreaming about the future or the past.

    No that was the kickoff cover team you are thinking of.

    he has stated that he doesn't do much during the game.........staff does not him. They have a game plan and the Assisants call plays and set defenses.
    He was hired to be a CEO, and apparently does so.

    That is exactly how it seemed. It would be a lot of fun to be an Assistant working under him.

    Agreed..

    And I did notice that and was wondering about that too (we were right behind the team on like the 45 yard line... That was the best part about going to Toledo was we got great freak'n seats because no one goes to their games...)


    Oh we will fight, fight, fight for Iowa State,
    and may her colors ever fly!!!
