    Wow someone actually took a hard look and called it for what it was, an awful season with glimpse of hope for the long road back to being a meaningful team in the big 12.

    Good article.

    "Though some of the fans who bought into the hype surrounding Chizik's arrival might feel a bit duped, it's important to remember that, at Iowa State, there's never been a quick fix...."


    Going on 34-years for me next year waiting on the "quick fix".

    Article says it took Johnny Majors and Earl Bruce until the forth year for a breakout, then they left.

    It's hard to imagine a breakout for us in Chiz's forth year - 2010, with the south rotation schedule. Then if we do eventually get a breakout year, coach gets hired away, like Bruce and Majors, and we start all over again.....either that, or Iowa State adds another tombstone in our coaching graveyard.

    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
