    CFN: Ranking the rookie head coaches 2007

    Thought this would stir some debate... pretty fair overview though.

    Re: CFN: Ranking the rookie head coaches 2007

    i agree with most of it..


    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."

    Re: CFN: Ranking the rookie head coaches 2007

    I noticed they said this about Brian Kelly:
    "Provided he sticks around long enough to coach a few of his recruiting classes, Kelly has the tools to win titles and get to BCS bowl games with this school."
    I'm with Chizik all the way but is that why Pollard didn't hire him? Because he would pull a Tim Floyd on us?

    Probably that very reason, yes. Kelly will probably take the first "better" job that is offered.

    Re: CFN: Ranking the rookie head coaches 2007

    Interesting article. Thanks for posting. The one thing I've been hearing about Minnesota is that they are bringing in a really good recruiting class. Currently, I am told they are 3rd in the big 10 behind you know which two teams...which kind of shocks me. If he can recruit well, maybe the honeymoon isn't over.

    Re: CFN: Ranking the rookie head coaches 2007

    I've heard mixed things about Brewster, but they have a chance at a good recruiting class, only if some of the bigger pieces fall into place. Everything just went down so fast last season for them, that everyone is freaking out. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out both on and off the field for them in the future.

    The thing is, Glen Mason consistently went to bowl games with the talent Brewster had to deal with this year. If he can't even get those guys up to win a game, are a bunch of the "hot" recruits going to Minnesota going to have to settle for just barely making bowls?

    Kragthorpe and Brewster were names that were kicked around for the ISU opening. They took a beating in this article.

    Of course Kelly was another guy on the ISU list, and he has done well at Cincy, but he is just using Cincy as a stepping stone to more $$$ and a bigger school.

    I still like the Chizik selection. And I think it was a fair assessment in the article.

    That maybe true but don't you think they might be getting use to the new system just like our guys were? I think they should do pretty well next year

    Yeah, I think Mason was pretty underrated. Brewster will have to do very very well to make them forget the success they had under Mason.

    Back to the article...pretty fair assessment, given what GC had to work with.

    Bet Mr. Dienhart doesn't view it this way


    Chuck Lidell: I paint my toenails with pink and black polish. Problem is, I get more paint on my toes and on the carpet than on my nails. Any advice?
