The more I read about the guy, the more I like him and the more excited I am for the 09 season. Im still nervous, but after the press conference, I think this guy might be exactly what ISU needs to grow and turn that corner.
IMO the hire is better than the Chizik hire, because he actually wants to be here.
This is exactly what I was thinking. I realize it takes a little more to be a good coach. But when you have a guy that wants to be here, he is gonna give it all he has to fullfill that goal for himself and for Cyclone Nation. This guy sounds down to earth I love it.
Solid hire. one of the immediate names that came to mind when we were finally rid of Chizik. I'm looking forward to the presser tonight. Did anyone else feel like Jamie tried to inject false excitement in the fan base with the way Chizik was introduced (smoke, helmet, etc). It always just felt Jamie tried hard to sell Chiz to us because he was unsure how the marriage would work. I love how this search was conducted, and I love how he's being introduced. Jamie obviously feels confident in this hire and for good reason. We don't need the smoke and mirrors party introduction, let's just let Paul come in here, do his work, and support him as Cyclone faithful.
Solid post! Welcome aboard!
This would have been a nice post to give some rep to, but I've overdone it.
I didn't look to see if I posted in this thread and I don't know if I was "Excited" but I said for a long time, what ISU needed was a guy who had a tie to Iowa as a state. A guy who felt at home when he was here and success would keep him happy.
