    Re: ISD: That Poor Man, Gene Chizik

    When did it become okay to break down every sentence into a new paragraph?

    It's probably formatted for the paper edition, where the editorial appears in a thin strip along one side of the page.

    Good work, Vanderbilt. I did not know you could win against the Tigers.

    Did Chizik pay the author to write that? That's the only reason I can think of for writing it.

    I refuse.
    I feel bad for him about the loss of his mother.

    I don't feel bad that he stinks at his job and I find it funny.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    I used to read the Daily all of the time when I was in school. My son says he never does, finds it laughably poor quality. This story is about as silly as telling folks not to root against the Hawks.

    Chizek is a sellout. He's set for life with all that money unless the wife is as high maintenance as she seems. He did do us a huge favor however by leaving for the money.

    Re: ISD: That Poor Man, Gene Chizik

    As I've told countless others on why I still root against him.

    I don't blame him for leaving ISU for Auburn. Fact is, he was never going to be a long term coach, and he got offered a great coaching opportunity and went for it.

    Why I root against him though is because how he handled the entire situation. He lied through smiling teeth saying he was "firmly entrenched" and left abruptly, and acted like he did nothing wrong the entire time. I try not to hold grudges, but I bleed cardinal and gold, and that **** doesn't fly with me.

    Flew all the way back for a 45 second sendoff speech to his players and to deposit his check. Huge favor to JP so that we could hire a coach.

    Re: ISD: That Poor Man, Gene Chizik

    Did that person say it's hard to recruit against the likes of LSU and Alabama? Didn't Auburn have top 10 classes the past 2 years? Does that person think its perfectly acceptable for someone to openly lie to their boss, players, and fan base?

    Eff whoever wrote that article.

    So frickin jealous of what they have in Ames. It's truly amazing what Fred has done coming in with 0 coaching experience.

    I really wish ESPN will do a redux of the Roll Tide/War Eagle 30 for 30 for this year.


    “They're very, very hard to guard,” Notre Dame head coach Mike Brey said. “They're really good. And with Niang in the middle kind of wheeling and all those guys spreading you out, they're kind of a nightmare matchup. And they're men. They're really men.”
