    New ISU? Check

    - New AD. Check

    - New coaching staff (FB, MBB, WR). Check

    - Serious Facility Upgrade Plans. Check

    - New Look. Check

    - New Attitude. Check


    Pollard officially has completely changed the face of ISU athletics. In a few more years (hopefully), the Master Plan will yield us bigger changes to Jack Trice and Hilton.

    Will these face lifts and changes produce? Time will tell.

    For the moment...

    Glad to be along for the ride. Check

    It is awesome to have a proactive approach. I don't think BVD was a terrible athletic director, he was just ok with teh status quo. We want more and JP is doing his best to bring it. It's awesome.

    Re: New ISU? Check

    It is very proactive and aggressive.

    For the first time, an AD and staff have put everything on the line in order to win - including their jobs and reputation.

    Before we always wanted to just tip-toe around the issues, not do anything drastic, just take very small baby steps forward.

    Now, changes are being made and challenges thrown down right and left.

    What I like so far, is that everyone is responding to them.

    We're not afraid anymore. You hear that college athletics? We're not afraid anymore!!!

    You don't win by sitting back...you go out and take it...or die trying.

    I'm excited about the new look and facility upgrades but if we don't start winning more games on the field and court they won't mean anything. Just hope these improvements helps recruiting and positions ISU to sustain some success.

    Just hang onto it until we make the next change...once it is two rotations behind the times it becomes "hip and retro"



    Im just glad I have Homan as my bodyguard, Eustachy joked. If I ever make it real big and get to drive a limo everyday, hell be driving it. I thought he came off the bench like somebody was stealing his cow or something.

    Re: New ISU? Check

    I wonder what it would be like in 2008 if Pollard was around during the Sage, Seneca and Fizer/Tinsley years? Something tells me we would have had our facilities in place by now. That is what kind of leader Pollard is in my opinion.

    To quote Lou Holtz..."if you're not growing, you're dying".

    The problem is...for about 5 or 6 years in the late 90s one would have thought our school colors were blue and red.
