    GC seems happier with the start of fall 08

    Mid-Iowa Newspapers - ISU football notebook: Chizik likes what he sees from his team

    Gene seems fairly pleased with the way practice is going so far, and it sounds like he is hoping to see the team more ready to start the season this year.

    Climb on board the band wagon while there's still seats available. It's going to get very crowded in about a month!!

    Re: GC seems happier with the start of fall 08

    doesn't seem like your typical "oh yeah i am excited for the season, blah blah blah" type of attitude we're getting from Gene that'd you see in other coaches. I think he is honestly liking the direction of his players and I think there are a lot of players on this team DETERMINED to not let the start of last year repeat itself. You know it's on their minds. 2 weeks 'Clones!

    Re: GC seems happier with the start of fall 08

    Reading the article made me even more excited than I already am for this season to start. I feel that Coach Chizik would not say comments like that unless truely felt. I have said it before and I will say it again, I believe in this team and the coaching staff and look forward for the months and years to come. Everything last year was brand new to everyone on the team, but that was last year and the growing pains are starting to subside. By all means go get em cyclones do not hold !!

    "I'm not saying I'm going out and buying stock in everybody right now, but I'm very encouraged," Chizik said. "I'm very encouraged about where they started and where they are now.
    I thought this was funny--especially considering that he obviously already holds the greatest investment in this team.

    Hell, I'd sure hope so! Because if not...

    - We'd be in for a long season.
    - I'd be concerned about our staff.
