    Chizik's arrogance

    Found this ARTICLE where Chizik claims he's never failed at his job...

    I wouldn't call his stint at ISU a success...

    Re: Chizik's arrogance

    Which is why Chizik believes this might just be his last stop.
    Well, Chizik, this might very well be your last stop - because if you blow it there like you blew it here, no one's ever going to give you another chance to get it right. There's still not a single logical person that can believe you got a "promotion" with a 5-19 record. You don't win big at Auburn, no one will ever take a chance on you ever again.

    He probably should say "I promise to get you at least 5 wins in two years"

    Re: Chizik's arrogance

    If leaving on a ten game losing streak isn't failing I don't know what he thinks is. I am so glad chizzlstick is gone. Rhoads will have some success at ISU and I am very confident that he didn't come back to Ames with one foot out the door.

    "Every time I took a better job it was to some place new.''

    Doesn't this appear to be a big slap in the face to Auburn? He left Auburn for Texas, so that was a better job. Watch out Mack Brown, Gene Chizik is coming for your spot!

    Re: Chizik's arrogance

    "I've been doing this for 23 years," Chizik told the lunch-time crowd. "I've never been fired. I've never taken a job I sought. They've always sought me.

    He's never stuck around anywhere long enough to get fired.

    I was thinking the exact same thing when I read the article. Hard to get fired when you never stay anywhere longer than 2 years

    You can't fail or really succeed in that time period, especally as an assistant, just hope the teams you are coaching win enough to pull off a national title or 2 so everyone thinks you did a good job.

    Glad the pompous *** is gone, I will take my chances with PR, at least he seems somewhat happy to be here.

    Re: Chizik's arrogance

    I am going to puke.

    "Chizik told the Rotary Club that he sees what he does as a "ministry," that besides coaching football he wants to prepare the young men who come to him "built like NFL veterans, 6-foot-5 and 290 pounds, but who act like 13-year-olds" and help them become successful citizens."

    Where I work there is a guy that is doing the same thing Chizik did at Auburn and Texas. We recently realigned our clients that we work with and he was assigned two clients that were previously with a different account manager who is way better than him. This guy is now getting credit for his clients running so smoothly, while his old clients are being overhauled because of his incompitence.

    Chizik was lucky to leave Iowa State before the mainstream press realized how many games ISU would have won with better coaching. Good recruiter, but horrible at X's and O's. I understand why he didn't bother to work on relationships with Iowa HS programs too. He knew that he wouldn't need to recruit in Iowa for his next job, so why bother. Just concentrate on the the hotbeds.

    It's easy to be a successful citizen, with Chizik as your role model.
