    Pollard's a fucking cock and doesn't deserve to luck into a guy like Chizik.

    Armchair, the sumbitch got him. I can't wait to see the presser tonight and see how smug he gets.

    As far as Cyclones fans are concerned, either I'm nuts or this is a "I can't believe they're stupid" moment, but some fans were asked over the lunch hour about the new hire. Many of them had no clue who he was, unless they were pretty knowledgeable college football fan.

    You'll like this bit: Pollard said that Chizik was his #1 since day one of the search.

    Real fucking smug.
  3. I'm taking Gene Chizik in this one.

    Good luck, homes. You'll need it.

    You can Pollard anything you want, but for him to land a coaching candidate of that caliber -- I would argue that Chizik is the best candidate out there who is not a current head coach -- is an amazing feat. Chizik is way out of Iowa State's league.

    Illinois won't be firing Zook soon. He is recruiting his ass off and landing big time kids.

    Still, can the Zooker coach? To quote Macualay Culkin: "I don't think so."

    Playing with a flight tracker, a plane from Amarillo landed in Ames at 7:38 a.m. CST. Would guess one wouldn't need to file a flight plane to go Amarillo-Lubbock-Amarillo.

    As a head coach, Ron Zook would make a great recruiting coordinator.
    I like the hire ISU made with Chizik - but I agree that Pollard comes off as a jerk to the media.
  10. ...some poor idiot who will be fired.

    The AD, Lisa Love, fired him over the phone, before the team banquet.

    That was very touching for her to do that [/sarcasm].

    ...H.R. Pufnstuf and Teddy Ruxpin as an assistant [/Mike Valenti] ;)
