    Good stuff.
    Iowa State: Give Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard tons of credit Ė- not only did he pull off the most secretive coaching search I can ever remember (the school announced it had landed its "No. 1 choice" Sunday afternoon, yet as of Sunday night the media had yet to figure out who it was) but he landed one of the hottest names on the market, Texas co-defensive coordinator Gene Chizik.

    To be honest, Iím surprised this is where Chizik landed -- I always assumed it would be somewhere a little more prestigious. Either Pollard made a heck of a pitch, or Chizik views Iowa State as a sleeping giant. The dynamic 44-year-old has been a head-coach-in-grooming the past few years working under Tommy Tuberville and Mack Brown who, even as an assistant, had sort of a Bob Stoops/Urban Meyer-type aura to him. Itís unlikely heíll be able to achieve those guysí level of success in Ames, but I have no doubt heíll significantly raise Iowa Stateís profile.
