    Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I'm looking for fans that may be unhappy or not excited about hiring Chizik...to see how united the fans are with this hire.

    Right now we're all climbing the rafters, it would be nice to hear the other side.

    Please, no bashing or attacking members for their opinions - even if they're unpopular.

    I'd like to get some good discussion/thoughts provoked here - if there are any against Chizik being in Ames.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I am excited about the hire, but some of the comments on the Texas boards got me thinking. How much of his success at Texas was due to quality of players and how much was coaching? That one will be difficult to answer, but we'll get to see first hand.

    I think you will be hard pressed to find any ISU fan that is not, at the very least, optimistic about this hire. There's really nothing negative that you can say legitimately about it. He's a bigger name. He's got experience. He's from Texas. All around this is a great, fanbase unifying, hire.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I totally support it, but one thing that could be said against him is he was only at Texas for two years. He was hired too late to recruit his first year, and he's not going to be there long enough to coach his first defensive class. He's coaching guys he hasn't recruited.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I really like how everyone is very up on this hire! He is probably one of the best assitants in the nation. What scares me is that he has no head coaching experience. The only hire I could see that would be any better then him, out of the names that were circulating, is Gary Patterson. But in all, I think we got a damn good man coming to Ames!

    Actually it was Brewster. Chizik wasn't coaching at Texas in 2002.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I will of course support Chizik, but I'm not jumping up and down like most.
    He did well at Auburn and Texas- Great recruiting bases, so they have a lot of talent. How does that make him a good coach at ISU? Recruiting? Assistants are more responsible for recruiting than head coaches. No Midwest ties.
    I was hoping for an offensive coach. Defensive coaches tend to be more conservative. I don't think conservative football is good for ISU right now.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    If there is someone not excited about this they just don't get the magnitude of our program getting a top assistant from the previous year's NATIONAL CHAMPS. this is huge for ISU and for the state as a whole. I would venture that if they do get the previous then they are Mac loyalists and would not have been happy with any hire. I just peed a little.

    Good points...

    - No head coaching experience.
    - Didn't coach his recruits at Texas.
    - Defensive mind, may be conservative.

    Re: Unexcited/Unhappy with the hire of Chizik?

    I was fairly excited about Kelly with his coaching record and was ''ok'' with him, but I also wanted a Texas connection because of the recruiting ISU does down there. Man, Jamie Pollard has done more for ISU than any other AD in his brief time here...Absolutely, love the hire, he has Big 12 experience, Bet the Hawkeyes are saying ''OH ****.'' ....HITMAN

    I like those points as cons. However, I'm sure he built some good relationships in recruiting in 2 years at Texas.

    I am also curious to see what he does for the offensive side of the ball.
