    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    Jason Scales and Jesse Smith attended media day with coach. Interesting.

    I did chuckle a little at this comment from Gene regarding Scales...

    He's played a lot of football at Iowa State in his previous three years and we look forward to a lot of great leadership for him.

    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    He was asked about the running backs specifically and avoiding mentioning any specific guys - so I guess we'll have to wait a bit more about the future of Bass with ISU.

    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    You can do the same thing on defense. Special teams. We've started a complete overhaul of our special teams from deep snappers to kick-off guys to extra-point field goal guys. I mean, it's a complete overhaul.
    Does anybody have any insight into this? What happened?

    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    My favorite quote:

    We don't have a lot of players that "add water, instant player." We don't have that.
    So, like, I guess in Texas their football players are like Chia pets? I'm confused...

    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    I'd say early on in the year, I was concerned because I didn't know if our football team really understood or believed that when things got bad that they could respond.
    Now, if we go there and we focus and we do the little things, if we don't do the little things it takes to win, then we get embarrassed and we did. We got embarrassed last year more than once.
    One thing I love about Chiz is the fact that he does not pull punches.

    I love coaches interviews. Insead of saying "our talent is subpar in some areas, so we'll have to focus on development", he talks about adding water.... If that is the case with McCoy, I think the dude needs to be watered before he plays teams with a decent pass rush....

    Ya, our special teams stink. Remember the Toledo game? Chizik knows field position is huge and we rarely put ourselves in a favorable position with good returns or keeping the other team from doing the same. Short kickoffs with big run backs often put our defense in a hole. We've brought in new kickers and hopefully the coverage will be better too.

    Re: Chizik's quotes from Big 12 Media days

    My favorite thing about Chizik that we had a problem with Mac is that he says he is going to look for the 22 best on both sides of the ball. It felt that with Mac, the talent dropoff between strings was enormous.

    Trust me, I was aware with their struggles last year. What I was interested in is what changes were made. I mean he said a completely overhaul so that includes more than just bringing in two freshman kickers.

    Did they change their formations, stuff like that?

    Kinda like a bunch of the recruits we got "at the eleventh hour" last year.

    Whatever overhaul means, it's good that special teams are getting some much needed attention. That alone may be worth 2 more wins this year.
