    Article about Chizik/Pollard on ESPN.com

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2784470

    I think it does a good job of stating the situation at Iowa State. If he goes 10-2 in Ames, as stated in the article, he'll get more than the key to the governor's mansion! Here's to realistic people--as opposed to the craziness at 'Bama.

    Re: Article about Chizik/Pollard on ESPN.com

    Well-written article. Even mentions our past without taking gratuitous pot-shots at us, like some publications.


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.

    "We haven't gone through the door to the other side, and if you take us through, you can write your own ticket," Pollard said. "The last coach at Alabama went 10-2 and it wasn't good enough. Go 10-2 here and you can have the keys to the governor's mansion."
    Pretty much sums everything up. I'll take 10-2 EVERY YEAR (That's prolly good for several BCS bowls, no worse than Holiday Bowls, and wins over EIU, Knebraska, Mizzery, K-State Colorado, Kansas, and North titles almost every year)

    "Football is an intense game," Chizik said. "It's a higher level of everything. I'm intense. I'm a perfectionist. And when I don't get what I want, I put the pressure on them to give it to me. That's what makes this game great: heated moments, intense moments, the up-and-down roller coaster. It creates a bond like no other."
    I dare someone to tell me we didn't hire a guy with the right mindset.

    Re: Article about Chizik/Pollard on ESPN.com

    Some said Pollard was crazy to believe he could find a coach better suited to win at Ames than McCarney. Some said Chizik is crazy to believe he wouldn't have landed a more attractive position than Iowa State, and that no coach can win a Big 12 championship there.

    "I never look back," Chizik said. "And I never will. But look, I've been doing this for 21 years, and I haven't made a bad move or a wrong move yet."


    What a great article! I love the explanation of this year's recruiting class and I love the self-confidence! As a long-time ISU fan and alum, I'm conditioned to doubt things. Even so, I'm excited enough that I've renewed my season tickets in February and increased my giving level to NCC! Hope springs eternal in Cycloneland!

    No offense but I doubt he'd need her. If I remember from the press conference he already has a pretty good looking wife.
