    Unhappy Tyrone McKenzie - Officially headed to USF

    This was posted today...saw the link on the free board on another site, posted by a USF fan....

    Blog link

    Speaking of guys who could be at USF in January, I have two updates: linebacker Tyrone McKenzie, who had 129 tackles at Iowa State last season, has registered for spring classes at USF, another strong indication he's transferring and joining the Bulls as a walk-on. McKenzie is hoping to get a hardship waiver that will allow him to play this fall at USF, giving him two years of eligibilty with the Bulls. He's not making any public comments, but if I were USF's coaches, I'd want him to stay very quiet until he'd set foot on campus for classes next month. If this goes through, I'd expect him to start and be an impact player on defense this fall.
    UPDATE

    Here is a link to an article stating he is in fact transferring...

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    Just a couple weeks ago we were informed that Tyrone would be staying, this blog seems to contradict that. :-(

    I know this source is not a great one, but his Facebook status also hints at him leaving...

    When it comes to who's going to be a Cyclone and who isn't... Honestly, I'm not counting on anybody until fall practice begins. Although, losing McKenzie woudl be huge because that would turn a perceived strength (linebacker) into another question mark for next year.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    We will lose people who are a surprise. Just expect it. It happened last year with the same staff back and it will for sure happen with a new staff. Doesn't mean it was due to the change only that it happens almost every year. There where rumors of his moving on during spring practice and prior to summer workouts last year.

    one thing that will not be hurting next year will be our linebacking corp. we have a stable of backers that are very talented even if mckenzie leaves. granted, they are young, but i saw good things this year even from the boys that didnt get much playing time. if he leaves it hurts, but its far from the end of the world.

    I just checked the Iowa State Registry which was updated on December 28, 2006 and Tyrone is registered at Iowa State for 2nd Semester so I would take the South Florida post with a grain of salt.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    Maui that's a good point and give some hope, but he would have done that back in October before anyone would have been fired and there was still hope for a season.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    I wish Chris Williams was still around the other site. He had very good connections and a few weeks ago he was convinced that Tyrone would still be here next year. Wish we could ask him if he's heard anything else.

    Hopefully he'll be here next season. He, Carper, and Bowen would be a great starting trio of linebackers to have for an entire season.

    I think you just did. He may not know anything, but he has replied to other threads on this site if he does.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    Well that settles it, lets get Mac back because OMG we are losing Tyrone freakin' McKenzie. Are you kidding me??? Attrition happens people, my god even the great Mac had attrition. Why do you think that he signed 30 plus kids, besides the fact that he took flyers on questionable kids, because attrition happens even in recruiting.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    Where did anyone mention that we should get D-Mac back as a result of this possible departure? Or, for that matter - where was D-Mac mentioned in this thread at all?

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    i don't think DMAC or the new coaching staff has one single thing to do with Mckenzie leaving. I am almost positive it has to do with family, i know he his from Florida and has family that goes to USF. I don't why DMAC was brought up? It always sucks to lose a starter, but to say "eh o well we lost our 2nd leading tackler and one of the bright spots in our lineup, o well" is pretty stupid.

    Re: Tyrone McKenzie - headed to USF?

    Well if he leaves it definitely hurts. Especially since he was just a JR. I guess we'll find out what we have in Kris Means. Jesse Smith is a good role player, but I don't see him filling in as a fulltime starter. Hopefully this doesn't play into Bowen going anywhere since he and McKenzie would seem to be pretty close.
