Iowa State coach Gene Chizik says after a week off it will be back to work for the Cyclones as they try to turn the program around. ISU closed a dismal season with a 2-10 record after a 38-30 loss at Kansas State.
Chizek says his players aren’t in school and says it’s a much needed rest after a long season. He says the players will return to strength and conditioning work and the coaches will hit the recruiting trail next week and get started on next season.
The Cyclones finished the season without a Big-12 victory. Chizik has a vote in the coaches poll and refused to say during the Big-12 teleconference whether he voted Texas or Oklahoma higher. Chizek says he doesn’t have any quilt about how he voted and "never will."
