Chizik is just trying to be modest. He's not going to come out and predict a bowl game. We know there will still be growing pains, but this year looks like it will be better than last year.
I'm still excited!
Reading that just reminded me of how sick I was getting of having a "cheerleader coach" a few years back.
Here's a quote that typifies the difference between Chizik and Brand X:
"We don't have a lot of players that, 'Add water, instant player,'" Chizik said. "We don't have that. We've got to do a lot of developing."
Player development? What the hell is that?
It's good to hear. Very, very good to hear from Coach Chizik.
