    Happy Gene Chizik Day! (5-19)

    Consider this as a day to reflect on the favor that Auburn did us by hiring Chizik away after posting only a 5-19 record here. Its also interesting to think about where we might be if he were still here. I personally think we would be still scuffling along after a 3 win season or so in 2009.

    Why choose today as Gene Chizik Day and not the actual day that Auburn hired him? I'm very confused.

    Yeah, Auburn definitely did you guys a favor. ISU has a good coach in Rhoads and he isnt going anywhere.

    Re: Happy Gene Chizik Day! (5-19)

    With new coordinators, I think Chizik goes 5-7 in 2009 (minus Nebraska).

    In any case, we got to Arizona. He goes to Florida. Everything works out in the end.

    I'd be more inclined to celebrate Greg McDermott Day. At least Chizik brought in a some decent talent and beat Iowa. That's something...

    You do realize that McDermott brought in some decent talent, and also beat Iowa, right?

    These things never happened.........

    Oh, wait, yes they did. I watched us beat Iowa twice, and that KSU game was a whole lot of fun.

    The shame is that Mac brought in more talent that we realize sometimes.

    Not sure.. But, I think if you put two of them together that are either, lacking oxygen or just feeling sad, you get something like this??..
