    I want a young coordinator!!!

    There have been several posts asking for young energetic coordinators, and I can not agree more. I'm not sold on a guy that has had great stats at a major power such as Auburn or Texas. Those programs have the best talent and it's just a matter not screwing it up(like the Yankees). I would love to hire someone from a mid-major that has had great success with far less talent.

    Don't disagree. It's a crap shoot with whoever we hire though so might as well support it until there is reason not to.

    Re: I want a young coordinator!!!

    I would rather have both coordinators of the 2004 Auburn Tigers.

    Auburn has talent.. but its not like they weren't playing against any. Its all relative, good sir.

    Ideally, I want someone who has succeeded in a major conference, with less talent, not just someone who has succeeded with less talent throughout the whole conference.

    Also, there is so much more to the game than just the level of talent you have on the field. Look at Notre Dame...top level talent, .500 record.

    Wow, since when did Auburn become a "powerhouse"? Al Borges would be great. Auburn was winning 9+ games a year with Brandon Cox at QB. He'd love Austen Arnaud, you know, someone with talent.

    Re: I want a young coordinator!!!

    It is a gamble to hire a young guy at this point. If this hire doesnt pan out Chizik is problay done at ISU. He needs someone with a OC resume. He had huge issues with the playcalling and slowness getting plays in, he wants someone who has proven they can do those things.

    Totally agree. Chizik can't afford to take chances on some unproven, young buck. Should he have done that two years ago? Maybe but at this point we need a guy who's been there, done that.

    No one cares what you want, unless you're Gene Chizik

    Great point. ISU seems to have pretty good talent on the offensive side of the ball. If Borges can bring in a little more creativity, that could help us in the redzone. I'm tired of seeing our kicker among the Top 10 in the nation in FG attempts. We need to score touchdowns to win in the Big 12.

    Something that you're not looking at is that the OC will have a hand at recruiting. You want someone who will call plays that fit the talent we have, but you also need someone with recruiting ties to get good talent.

    I'm sure he's itching to get back to good ole Ames then

    I think Borges would be a perfect hire for OC. We can take a young flier on an up and coming DC, especially if Chizik basically takes over that role.
