    Chizik's Monday Press Conference

    Whats it like to come in here on Monday and talk about a win?

    "Its great, but its not about me coming in and having to defend my position, its all for the kids to me. I don't get any joy and feel great about myself coming in here. Its about the kids in that locker room that have a look on their face and have a feeling about themselves is all about. Its about them and for the fans that come here and see the win. I would much rather talk about a win than a lose don't get me wrong. But its all about the kids"

    That is a true leader. Accepting the blame for when things don't turn out the way you want but yet giving credit to everyone when they do

    Re: Chizik's Monday Press Conference

    any storm warnings for saturday??


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."

    Man that day 2 years ago was amazing. I had so much fun despite being completely idiotic and ignoring all safety recommendations. Then the atmosphere at the game itself was one of the best I've seen at Jack Trice. It's a day I'll never forget, luckily for all the right reason.

    That was pretty awesome, especially seeing Curvey run back that turnover...

    Aren't the Colorado colors similar to those of the Hawkeyes?

    Technically they're silver and gold, however black is commonly used.

    Hmm... I know another school that used to have silver and gold (and black) for school colors... but they changed their school colors because Black, Silver and Gold were hard to dye into clothing...


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

    I wonder if we will have another tornado this week too. That would be pretty cool.

    Colorado 05 was the best game I have ever been to. I remember walking to the stadium and seeing the funnel cloud over it. Awesome.

    Re: Chizik's Monday Press Conference

    I really enjoyed the part, starting around mid-way through the conference, when Gene started talking about the Seniors.

    When he was describing how Bryce Braaksma took the move from DE to undersized DT... that made me really proud of him, and all of our Seniors. This is really a great group of young men, and I hope everyone shows them a HUGE amount of appreciation at their last game at JTS on Saturday.

    Thanks for your attitude and all your hard work, guys. You make us proud to cheer for the Cyclones.

    Re: Chizik's Monday Press Conference

    put the record aside for a second and just take in the job he has done SO FAR (still got work to do here at I-State), but how can you look back and say Gene Chizik WASN'T the guy for the job? Look at the recruiting, listen to the press conferences, look at the ATTITUDE OF THIS TEAM!!! They are a complete reflection of him and he is nothing but class, class, and more class. Head coach who gives ZERO credit to himself for a win and all of it to the kids? No excuses at Iowa State anymore...Perfect hire. Thank you Jamie Pollard.
