    SI's Mandel on ISU hire

    http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/si_...-carousel.html

    Iowa State: Give Iowa State AD Jamie Pollard tons of credit –- 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, I’m 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. It’s unlikely he’ll be able to achieve those guys’ level of success in Ames, but I have no doubt he’ll significantly raise Iowa State’s profile.


    Iowa State: Anyone who's a true college basketball fan needs to see a game at Hilton Coliseum. Nice is in the DNA of Iowans and the fans here are particularly gracious -- even when the home team loses but gives a great effort, they are appreciative.

    ESPN.com picked Hilton Coliseum as the "Hot Arena" in the Big 12...coaches in the league noted that, "regardless of talent, the Cyclones have a home court like no other."
