    Chizik is all business this weekend

    As if you wouldn't have guessed that!

    ESPN - No vacation for Chizik, Cyclones this weekend - Big 12

    I want a full report on that buffet that's mentioned, too, you travelers!

    Re: Chizik is all business this weekend

    Am I missing something, how can Chizik be 0-12 in road games? Was he a head coach somewhere else?

    Re: Chizik is all business this weekend

    considering that Chizik is 0-12 in road games during his career.
    This has to be a typo.

    Iowa State currently has the third-longest road streak in college football, trailing only the 16-game losing streaks of Florida International and UAB.
    Ouch.

    A typo is when you accidentally type 0-7 when you meant 0-6, since 7 is right next to 6 on the keyboard.

    Typing 0-12 when it's supposed to be 0-6 is a research mistake.

    "Hooters Casino is planning a $10 buffet before the game more in line with the traditional culinary values of the Midwest.

    No carving stations, sushi bars or dessert stations for these Iowa State fans. Instead, the casino plans to offer all-you-can-eat troughs of pork tenderloins, loose-meat sandwiches and other Midwestern favorites, washed down by free beer."


    It brings a tear to my eye.

    I am sure he is referring to ISU's 12 game road losing streak and didn't do enough research to know that half of those belong to Mac.

    He also misspelled (and quoted) Rachael Ray.

    You're right in that we have a 12-game losing streak. But he also says later on in the piece that we have a 16-game losing streak. Shoddy work, IMO.

    EDIT -- He also says McCarney started his career with a 15-game losing streak, which should actually say a 15-game road losing streak. And he says the streak "went on" to 0-30-1 before we beat Iowa in IC in '98. Also wrong. I think he meant McCarney's 15-game road losing streak added on to Walden's 0-14-2 road streak dating back to '91 (according to archived schedules on cyclones.com).

    That many losses isn't a good thing no matter how you look at it, but we've been better on the road over the last 13 years than this article says.

    Bad job outta you. Read it again:

    "...trailing only the 16-game losing streaks of Florida International and UAB."

    Fair enough--I messed up there, but see my edit.

    Mac was also 4-0 against UNLV - here's hoping Chizik keeps that streak going...
