    ISU wins Coaching Trade

    From the bleacher report. IIRC, they are not considered a good source of information, but this seems to be pretty much right on.

    Gene Chizik, Auburn, Replaces Tommy Tubberville
    This one is confusing to me. Chizik was an all world assistant at Texas where everyone wanted him. He took the head job at Iowa State and the team showed nothing. Chizik himself showed no ability to lead or win the big games.
    Tommy Tubberville did a real nice job in Auburn including an undefeated season just a few years back. The Tigers changed the offense which resulted in no offense which was ultimately Tubberville's downfall.
    While Tubberville was fired, Chizik has some huge shoes to fill.

    Paul Rhoads, Iowa State, Replaces Gene Chizik
    Here's where things get confusing, Chizik, a former defensive coordinator for Texas, went went from Iowa State to the Head Coaching job at Auburn. Rhoads the former defensive coordinator at Auburn, takes the lead job at Iowa State.
    Personally I think Iowa State may have won this trade as Chizik didn't seem to have the team headed anywhere and my guess is he made a ton more than Rhoads will. Along with the lower salry, Rhoads' defenses are pretty tough customers and while the looked short of amazing last year, they were on the field all day long.
    Where else can you find a guy who can win you a 2-0 football game?

    The guy might want to proofread or edit his writing sometime. Or maybe take an english class when he gets to high school.

    He should have put how PR is from Iowa, and had coached at Iowa State before.

    Discovering these facts would require research prior to writing...

    Chizik has told all the radio stations in Alabama that he had the makings of a 9 win team here at ISU this season. No offense to our guys, but I can't see how anyone would believe him.

    You mean he is doing radio interviews now. It may have had the makings for 9 wins but he could not have coached them to 9 wins.

    Where else can you find a guy who can win you a 2-0 football game?
    Even though it's incorrect (unless the 2-0 win was @ Pitt), it's a great quote.....I love CPR! I'm guessing the writer was referring to the Miss State game last year.

    Well, now that the riff raff (Chizik himself) has been cleared out of the way, maybe that's possible...
