    Pollard should hire him to the athletic department. Maybe the best Iowa State football player ever- next to Matt Blair.

    Best of luck in whatever your next endeavor is E. Hobbs III! You have always been a great ambassador for ISU.

    Caplan notes Hobbs, always ready with a quote, could have a career in broadcasting if he wants it.
    That or coaching.

    Bummer about Ellis. Hope he lands somewhere that he can still be the face of ISU.

    Re: Ellis Hobbs Retired

    I hope, if he wants, that we find him a job here at ISU. Nothing better than having our guys come back and keep making an impact. He was great in college and the NFL, and now he has a chance to continue making an impact in the sport similar to when Hoiberg retired for health reasons.

    Either way, best of luck to Ellis!

    One of my all time favorite Cyclones. Find a way to bring him back to Ames, Jamie.

    It's really too bad. I always really liked watching Hobbs play.

    Re: Ellis Hobbs Retired

    Good to see him taking care of himself. It'll be interesting to see if he gets back in coaching. He's a guy I'd love to see back in Ames.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Re: Ellis Hobbs Retired

    We need to sign him up as a grad assisstant. Then whenever Wally retires we can shuffle around Bobby Elliott to linebackers and make Ellis the DB's coach.

    Re: Ellis Hobbs Retired

    Loved Ellis. One of my all-time favorite Cyclone athletes. I'll never forget how crushed I was when he announced where he was from on MNF by mentioning his "DeLasalle High School" instead of ISU. I get it, and understand, but when he said ISU the next time instead of his high school I was so proud that the nation got to see that he was a Clone.

    I wish him all the best, and hope that he comes back as a member of the staff in some way. I can only imagine how good he would be at interacting with recruits and players. He's a great man.
