    Chizik Meeting With The Players

    Top Headline Of The DSM Register:
    Arnaud feels "Betrayed"

    Gene Chizik had his "meeting with his players" I have been told he had a 1 min 30 sec. conversation with his team and his assistant coaches. He told the players he had to leave and that is what happens in the football buisness. He also said that he will and always be a Cyclone for life.....


    Cyclone Football

    It's the start of something big.

    I heard he gave all the players this autograph so they will have it when he makes it big.

    Those meetings go a lot longer than 90 seconds. It's hard to explain a "business opportunity."


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    He is the biggest D-bag ever. Only to give your team 90 seconds is absolutely horrible

    Is this quote from Mrs. Chizik? I hope I didn't take it out of context.

    Nah...just a sign of his on-going problem. Can't stay at ISU long, 90 second meetings.

    Seems the guy has issues with stamina to me...

    He's never been anywhere more than a couple years. What's he going to do when the going gets tough at Auburn and all of his connections are burned?

    I don't know if I like him calling himself a Cyclone.

    Since we are on the theme of keeping new threads to a min.

    Here is a similar article from the CR Gazette

    Arnaud, Cyclones mull future | GazetteOnline.com - Cedar Rapids, Iowa City

    Love this quote

    "Whoever the next coach is here I'm going to give him all I have," Arnaud, a sophomore, said. "That's my mentality ... It's kind of surreal right now. Give everybody a week or two to grasp it and we'll be back at it. There's still life on our team."

    This is what I like to hear coming from the team leader. I know the Cyclones will be better off.
