    Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    Wow...

    EDSBS Archive CHIP KELLY IS A MAN OF HIS WORD. SERIOUSLY.

    From the original email:

    I was so angry with the game (even before the post-game melee) I am sending you an invoice for my trip to Boise. The product on the field Thursday night is not something I was at all proud of, and I feel as though Im entitled to my money back for the trip. Please see my invoice attached in this email. I will happily send along receipts if need be.

    Unlike most fans, he actually wrote this up and sent it. Unlike most coaches, Chip Kelly responded with a personal check written to one Anthony Seminary

    I should've tried that with McCarney when I went from Seattle to hell-hole, KS for the 2nd blown BigXII North championship in a row.

    Re: Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    This could go on forever.

    McCarney owes me for Connecticut, and most of his last year

    Chizik owes me for all of last year, starting with Vegas

    Re: Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    If I had to pick particular games I'd atleast want Toledo and Texas Tech from 2007 (especially Tech in light of a story I heard this weekend) and Baylor '08

    Re: Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    i didn't know coaches even read their own email. I always thought there was a secretary for that filtering out irrelevant emails and forwarding relevant ones to the coach's secret email.

    Re: Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    I posted it in another thread. Basically team was excited for a game and Chizik told them flat out, "You won't win this game"

    Needless to say, we didn't win that game


    That was a specific occasion but I think that explains quite a bit about his 2 year tenure here at Iowa State

    Chizik has been successful everywhere he has been. What's a matter with you guys.


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Meh, McCarney did the same thing before the Texas game in 2006. But you're right, doesn't make it acceptable.

    Re: Chip Kelly reimburses fan for Boise trip

    You will never win a game you don't at least think you can win. I personally think that a coach saying otherwise is proof he is either very early in his tenure or near the end and it holds true for ISU.
