If Chiz is coach of the year, Paul Rhoads in coach of the decade.

Re: Chizek just won Coach of the Year

this could mean good exposure for us.

How exactly? He leaves us high and dry after telling people there's no way he'll ever be able to win at ISU because of a lack of resources, talent, tradition, etc, then goes to Auburn and is competing for a national title in year two. How will that bring us good exposure?

Re: Chizek just won Coach of the Year

Gene deserves it regardless of what all the whiners will say.

Gus Malzahn deserves it. Their defense was a sieve. Malzahn's offense was damn near forced to score 40 per game.

Also...

Malzahn >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>McFarland

Ya think that had something to do with it?

His offensive coordinator won coach of the year maybe, Chiz is still a horrible person and a horrible coach.

Indeed. Will be interesting to see what happens when Malzahn gets his own head coaching gig.

Yeah I'm failing to see how its good exposure. All we'll hear is that 5-19 was based on how it's impossible to win here.

Do you have to forfeit that, too, after the NCAA makes you forfeit all your games?

Re: Chizek just won Coach of the Year

What major jobs are coming open because Gus M is first in line. As long as AU doesn't let Chiz hire Gus's replacement they should be good to go.

Re: Chizek just won Coach of the Year

Hahahahahhahahaha..... no.

If we still had Chizik we'd probably be 2-10 or 3-9 this year.

I honestly believe if we still had Chizik our recruiting classes would be more impressive. BUT, I don't necessarily believe that means we'd have a better team, if that makes sense.
