    grad assts.

    We need more former Cyclones getting grad asst jobs either here or at other schools. It doesnt seem like we have had a lot of guys try and get into coaching. Adam Carper is one example, hes pretty much been a coach the last couple years anyway. Hes one guy that could brought up and maybe want to head back to ISU one day.

    Re: grad assts.

    I would love to be a grad assistant, but I'm going to assume that no D-I program is going to take me since I have no experience playing the sport... This is one of those stupid things where if you want to do it professionally, you better have realized that in sixth grade or you're screwed.

    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.

    Yeah, you're kind of right. Usually they look for playing experience as well as someone with an indepth knowledge of the sport...you know.

    Of course, it's always who you know, though.

    Lol, I would never try and 'network' my way into a spot that I'd be in over my head, even if I thought I could.

    That's what irritates me, though- I know that I can pick up the knowledge and skills associated with football or any other sport, to the level that I would have everything I need to be a great coach, but the only thing any school is going to see is that I didn't play the sport in college. The only way I'll even have a prayer is by spending 20 years in the trenches of high school ball- an admirable position to be sure, but not one I think I want to devote most of my professional lifetime to.

    Carper would be a good one, but he is now a Sr, if I am correct. Last I knew he was working with the team wanting to become a coach. PR will do a better job at keeping ISU players as grad assts then Whizik did. Whizik came in cleaned house and threw out most of anything that had to do with the old staff or ISU, because it wasnt good enough. PR understands ISU and the importance to keep ISU players close to the progmam a lot better that Whizik ever could dream of. There does need to be a mix of former ISU players and players from other schools as grad assts.
