I had to do a double take on this part. I read "Calli Sanders" as "Cael Sanderson".
Corey built the success of our program on international recruits (he inherited Lisa Kohl). He'll have an easier time getting those recruits admitted to Boise State than he did to Iowa State.
Didn't he go to Boise State for college? Thought I read that on Twitter.
I must have missed the part of that e-mail that said "Open Letter to Everyone on Cyclone Fanatic".

Lisa Uhl for coach?
I would imagine Pollard would want the best coach possible to be coaching his son here at ISU in a few years, right?
As usual, coaching changes are good news and bad news.
The new coach will be more even handed between women's and men's teams.
The new coach can bring in better training methods that will keep athletes healthy and therefore more competitive.
The new coach will be able to attract a higher level of recruit especially with the facilities ISU has in place.
What do top recruits like Anna Holdiman think?
Ihmels did have success this year winning the Big 12 Women's XC Championship.
Will Lisa Uhl remain involved with the program since she and Kiel just moved back from Portland.
Overall it seems like a strange move but considering JW Hardy was out at Boise State in April. Ihmels must have had a eye on leaving for a some time. Not better facilities, not a better conference, low talent on roster, lateral move on salary ... hmmmm.
Go back and look at the HS times of athletes in both programs and you will see the difference.
Apparently he Loved Boise when he lived there. This was one of his "dream" jobs that happened to come open. It's not necessarily a better school/salary/program but it sounds like loving the city/area can make up for that, at least for him.
I'm more bummed for the assistant coaches. My husband is good friends with quite a few of them, and they'll most likely be looking for new jobs.
