    Chizik's in-game expression

    Has anyone else ever noticed Gene's expression when he's shown on tv during games? The one where he has his jaw clenched with just a hint of a frown and his eyes wide open looking upward? It always looks about the same and I never know if he is looking at his players like "what are you doing" or looking at the refs like " what was that" or if he is just looking to the heavens in disbelief or asking for divine guidance.

    Well, we had a replay of Saturday's game going when my sister-in-law (who is not a football fan and doesn't know any players or coaches) walked in, took one look at a shot of Gene on the sideline, and said "wow, that guy looks like he's really constipated."

    I've always wondered what that expression meant and now I know.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: Chizik's in-game expression

    I'm guessing after coaching at Auburn and Texas getting thumped on a somewhat regular basis is tough on Gene. Now, I don't doubt him when he says he knew st ISU would be tough. He hates to loose and that is fine with me. Given that fact htat he has only been a head coach for 1.5 seasons I'm very pleased with what I see. Case in point, not afraid to insert some wrinkles inot offensive schemes to score points. Danny Mac would be going into Stillwater this weekend with the following ******. 1.Run up middle. 2.Run up middle 3. Take sack 4. Punt 5. Repeat next series.

    I usually have that same expression after a few bowls of chili.

    But I digress...
