    Cincinnati got Chiziked

    Cincinnati's Kelly accepts Notre Dame coaching job - CFB News - FOX Sports on MSN

    Sounds like BK did the same type of thing that Cheezit did to the Cyclones! Apparently he told the team that he was happy there. Sounds like the players are pretty ****** and some walked out when he was telling them the news he was leaving.

    Sorry... It's almost completely different.

    I was talking about him saying he was happy there.

    Re: Cincinnati got Chiziked

    Not sure if people on this board would have the same level of animosity towards Chizik if he walked out after leading the team to an undefeated season, Big 12 Championship, and BCS bowl birth.

    12-0 vs 2-10.

    something smells like FAIL.

    Re: Cincinnati got Chiziked

    I honestly think Brian Kelly was happy there. He turned down a major BCS team last year. But this is a once in a lifetime opportunity that almost every kid in his era grew up dreaming of.

    Yeah, but it's exactly what Kelly would have done to us too. He would have bolted at the first opportunity. Just like Chizik did. ISU is in much better shape now.

    Kelly definitely did not bolt at the first opportunity. He had MANY opportunities to leave before this.

    Re: Cincinnati got Chiziked

    I don't know if it would have stung less if Chizik had taken us to two straight BCS bowls rather than only winning 5 games in two freaking seasons, but it would have been nice to find out.

    You really don't see the difference between leaving after 2 BCS bowls and leaving after a 2-10 season?

    Re: Cincinnati got Chiziked

    He told the team he was interviewing at ND. As far as Chiz, I'm not sure if the team had any idea he was talking to them until the rumors about him getting the job came out....

    And its totally different, if he leads a school to 2 straight BCS berths, lets the team know he is looking into the ND job, then goes you can't have that hard of feelings...

    Dantonio set him up for success. It would have taken 3-4 years before Kelly could have restored ISU to anything respectable.

    I don't know, Chizik had ISU easily within 7-5 last year if he didn't keep tripping over his own feet. I have no doubt that Kelly could have pulled that record out. But at that point, he'd have been looking at WV, Auburn, Tenn. Even if he wouldn't have gotten those jobs, he would have been looking at 6-6 or better at ISU this season, probably 7-5 and then there would be ND opening up among others. The guy can flat out coach, there's no doubt about that. It was only a matter of time before he was staring at one of the top 5-10 jobs in the country.

    That being said, I'd rather have our long-term coach in place right now in CPR then have better years in 07 and 08 and be looking for a coach right now.

    Everyone knew BK was angling for a better job than Cinci.

    Anybody else see Mardy Gillyard speak? That's a leader right there.
