    Chizik wastes no time...dismisses White

    http://www.cyclones.com/ViewArticle....&ATCLID=718620

    This shows Chizik is not going to put up, and there are no warnings. First offence and your done.

    Also UAB's former cornerbacks coach Shawn Raney has joined the ISU staff. Looks like hes got some ties to Bolt, and the Kansas JUCO's

    If ISU's dicipline system is anything like Iowa's, White probably had to have killed somebody to get kicked off the team.

    Theft = 1 game suspension
    Murder = Dismissal

    It's alot easier to let someone go when you didn't bring them into the program. I like the discipline, but I'll reserve judgement until it is one of Chizik's recruits that has troubles.

    had to let him go, he did the same exact thing as Jerry Gair and Tyease Thompson and McCarney let both of them go, so the athletic department would have been stupid to not let him go, whoever made the decision. Plus he needs to show that he isn't going to take any ********!

    Re: Chizik wastes no time...dismisses White

    I don't know much about White and all I know about the situation was the accused theft of a girl's laptop in Buchanan Hall, but GChiz discipline will be good for this team. I agree with the fact that it's easier to release someone else's recruit, but I think Chiz will have a similar discipline with his own. Good for Chiz.

    The key is recruiting talented players that are also "good kids". You only have these sort of problems when you recruit the wrong type of kids.



    I cheer for two teams, Iowa State and whoever is playing the hawkeyes.

    That's not true. These are college kids, when you have over 100 on your team some are going to get in trouble, period.

    Re: Chizik wastes no time...dismisses White

    Seems like pretty much a slam dunk decision, not much mulling was needed for it, I'm sure.

    Not his recruit, he flubbed up....see ya.

    Agree.....if you recruited 100 kids based only on character, and not on football skill, you would still have some mess up.

    Re: Chizik wastes no time...dismisses White

    Not his recruit but still one of his players in the sense that this is his team now - no matter who/what/when brought them into ISU. Hopefully, we will not see anymore of this type of behavior. But the law of averages and human nature being what they are I would expect some of these types of situations from time to time. Onward and upward from here.

    White picked a poor time to mess up.

    I think this is exactly where he was going. This kid was young, so his impact on the team isnt as significant. So hopefully by doing this, others will think twice before the choose to do something illegal. Now, if this was Meyer, Blythe, or a recruit later down the line, there may have been more leniantcy. But to make a statement and a good way to start grooming these kids is to set examples. This is a clear cut, red stamped, with big letters statement.
