    Coach Klenakis

    For those of you who haven't seen the mic'd up with Coach K on cyclones.tv should go check that out. I think he was a steal of a hire and will be very good! Really enthusiastic and energetic!

    I agree, I love how he's right up in the drill with the players.


    You can spend a lot of time and money picking out the perfect floral bouquet for your date ... but you're probably better off checking if you have bad breath and taking the porn out of the glove compartment.

    The moral: you gain more by not being stupid, than you do by being smart. Smart gets neutralized by other smart people. Stupid does not.

    Re: Coach Klenakis

    Wow. That is an incredible amount of energy. He works every bit as hard as the players. Very demanding, but also very encouraging. If he doesn't bring the best out of the guys, I don't know what will. And nice to hear him speaking well of Coach Bleil.

    I'm sure there was a similar sense of urgency during the chizik era

    Holy Crap! I just hope he doesn't where them out. Hopefully his enthusiasm transfers to great line play.

    Wow. That was intense. I can't imagine Bleil was like that.

    Re: Coach Klenakis

    I was impressed with his resume, and that vid is pretty intense, and I think he'll be great. I just can't get 'Cletus the slack-jawed yokel' out of my head when he talks. But, now, he's our yokel. Again, nothing against him, I like the hire, he's been there and done that.

    That guy really excites me with whats possible on the line play...he seems like a really great teacher of the position. With the RBs ISU has this COULD be the running game Rhoads needed to have last year. He does reminds me of the character that was the hick rapist from the green mile...with his southern dialect.

    This guy seems like a good kick to the pants for the O-line, and they certainly needed it based on how bad the run blocking was at times.

    I did like the theory of the pistol and not showing your hand...the 1 back zone read does tip your hand a little as the defense knows which way the RB is heading if he gets the ball.

    Re: Coach Klenakis

    If he can get the lineman that intense, watch out cause they could be some good ones. Love the intensity and seems like a perfect fit for CPR and staff. Glad we were able to pick him up!!

    You still can (and Nevada often did) run the zone read out of the pistol.

    This is true but this way in Pistol you don't know which way the running back will go.

    LOL . . . You and OOClone were both being complimentary (I think) - but given the way you did it I hope you never compliment me!!
