Good read. The program is in good hands.
I've gotta say, after seeing some of the other clips from the other Big 12 coaches at media day, I really think Chizik is one of the most well-spoken coaches in the league. Guy Morris and Dan Hawkins seemed to spend most of their time speaking to the top of the table instead of actually speaking to the media.
airwalke, good to see you issued a cyclone warning for this season too. i enjoyed the bball season one.
We will win with this man as our coach.
22, good article, thanks for posting. I have had the chance to speak personally with one of the Texas punters who is on staff at my sons summer camp here in Texas this summer and he has equally stated the same: that coach is one incredible person, loves his family and is so great with the players. He says the offense guys miss him too because the defense gave them so many opportunities to be on the field! The young man can't say enough good things about him and how great that we got him.
Great article! Thanks for posting. Makes me excited for the season to start.
I ran into him at a BB game this year and was very impressed in the 3-5 minutes with him. After I addressed him as coach and welcomed him, he threw out his hand and stated "Gene Chizik", like I didn't know... :)
He never once made me feel I was inconveniencing him even though this was when we had a few recruits in town. Don't worry, I doubt it was even 3 minutes of his time. But what really took me by surprise after the chat we had about a couple different things, he remembered my name and it was obvious that he listened to me the whole time.
I'm impressed with him as a Dad, a faithful person, and I'm sure I'll be just as impressed as a coach.
(Not sure why I always mess up his name)
however i think he meant to say " Gene ChizIk " :wink0st:
