    Stretch Limo?

    I see that Auburn used a stretch limo to create a presence in Alabama while on the recruting trail. Just wondering, did the Chiz use one in Iowa or was he tooling around in a Mini Cooper?

    Jean () spent as little time in Iowa as possible to still be thought of as the ISU coach. As in he was here 6 Saturdays a year, and even that might be a stretch.

    The Chizik Mafia?

    This really made me sick to look at. Seems a little over the top to me.

    Re: The Chizik Mafia?

    This stunt is now starting to get some national attention. I would not be surprised if Wilbon and Kornheiser talk about it today on PTI. It just seems like a desperate move to me. It's like Chizik admitting he can't compete with Saban on the recruiting trail in the convential way so he has to pull out a Hummer stretch limo to try and impress some high school kids.

    I get it kind of.......but that is just dumb. He would have looked plain foolish doing that in Iowa.
