    It's Christmas day 2010. Chizik is just finishing up his 4th year as HC. In those 4 years, the Cyclones have went 23-25 in the regular season.

    I'm assuming we will have 12 regular season games each year and ISU went 3-9 in his first year.

    Would you consider this a success?

    No because if we only played in 12 games each year, that would mean we have not gone to any bowls.

    IMO, there isn't any way Chizik will not achieve success... the guy is a proven winner and has excellent recruiting resources. I'm really looking forward to the future of Cyclone Football.

    I would think success would look like:

    2008- 7-6 (inc. bowl)
    2009- 8-5 (inc. bowl)
    2010- 7-6 (inc. bowl)

    With the 3-9, that's 25-26. Realistic, not bad, not great

    I like where you are going with that, but it really all depends on who we beat and who we lose too. I really want to see a upset over another quality team.

    If we are only at 25 and 26 why did we get rid of Dan? That will be the question everyone is asking.

    Exactly, we got rid of Dan to win 9+ games per year. Not 7-8.

    I voted yes because whether we like it or not...ISU is a TOUGH job to have in football! Not saying I don't think GC can achieve greatness...I am just saying it won't be easy at all! Therefore, if we are in two bowl games in the next three seasons, I think GC will have done a very good job!

    Let's assume to get to 23-25 he has this kind of record:

    3-9
    5-7
    4-8
    11-1

    Then yes, I would consider it a resounding success.

    If we get to 6-8 wins/yr and do it with an exciting brand of football and not the "play not to lose" stuff DMac would pull then I will be quite content.

    Sorry, couldn't partake. It's simply way-y-y too early for such a poll. At least let's see what this recruiting class looks like.

    How about you add a "depends" catagory?

    We got rid of Dan to play consistent, winning football. Let's get there first.
    If GC can win at least 7 games every year, I would be extremely happy.

    How many times did Mac win 7 or 8 games in his 12 year tenure?

    3??

    It's not like he did it every year

    I would like to see you say that after a couple of 6 win season. Yeah if we can break to 8 that would be another story. But Dan was good for 6 every other year.

    Unless we consistently get 8, it would be a failure and JP will probably lose his job.

    We got rid of Dan so we could have a chance of winning 9+ games. I'm convinced we wouldn't have gotten there without him. We might not get there, but at least we have a chance. We got rid of Dan because we were sick of the same old records, not because we were unhappy with him.

    I voted no because I would be disappointed with that kind of record in 4 years. I'd at least hope we'd be at .500 after 4 years.

    A 23-25 record in 4 years could look like this:

    3-9
    5-7
    7-5
    8-4

    Now, if that were followed by seasons of 10 or 11 wins, then great. But I'd like to see that 4th season be at least 9 wins...

    Woaaaahhh.... sounds like someone has had a few too many Elsinore's.

    You might need a couple back-bacon sandwiches to soak up some of that booze.
