    Proud of Chizik!

    If any of you didn't either hear or see this weeks press conference with Coach Chizik, I urge you to do so. He did us proud. This is a stand up guy who makes no excuses. If you don't think he knows football, just watch him. I understand why JP chose him and why he is so high on him. Chizik is a class act. If you don't believe in the future of Iowa State football after seeing him, I don't know what you can believe in. This guy is a man...

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    Was this the conference where Chizik recounted how he told Mack Brown he loved him and Mack told him he loved him too? ....

    I got a kick out of that. It's great they are great friends enough to say that. That can only help us I guess.

    I thought it was a classy conference too. It's good he has so much respect with Texas after leaving.

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    I just watched it and I agree. This was great, especially the joke about taking the team out for bowling and to the water park instead of practicing. He was just straight up and blunt about not having a great team right now.

    Was that a joke or is he taking the team out? Either way, I love it.

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    This presser was a breath of fresh air. It's nice to not have a bunch of hot air blown up our skirt. Try the Cr free presser. Dont know if it works, but i liked what i heard on teh CloneZone

    I guess I assumed it was a joke...but maybe he is taking them out instead of practicing. I just thought that he would think they needed to practice...who knows...

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    I thought that that press conference was the most candid that Chizik has been yet which is great. And that is not to say that he hasn't been candid prior to this press conference because he certainly was. He was just blunt and to the point about our football game. Not negative, but realistic. He also stated that he would not want to be anywhere other than Ames, Iowa. He is a goals-driven man who will not bail until he gets the job done. Rest assured, results are coming.

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    I didn't agree with the opening comment about 'making plays' then making an example out of Blythe not catching the fade. UT scored 9 touchdowns on us and it seems that most of the making plays needs to be on the defense and the lack of talent.

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    Solid news conference. He says it like it is and doen't try to put much spin on it. I loved the quote when he was talking about Oklahoma and said they were so good it was like chosing between having an eye poked out or to cut a hand off.

    I remember seeing him toward the end of the Texas game after hope was gone. He hadn't lost his cool at all. He's one cool customer.

    I do hope he can turn it around, but unfortunatly I've said that about a lot of our coaches. DMac got as close as anyone since I've been watching.

    Re: Proud of Chizik!

    I believe during pre-season practice he had the team show up for practice, only to have buses waiting to take them to the Nevada Pool.

    Not to rain on your parade, but I heard coach Mac did this very thing every year.
