    Jim Harbaugh Wanted to coach ISU?

    Was there any truth to the rumors that Harbaugh wanted the ISU job when we gave it to Chizik?

    I am much happier with Paul Rhoads since he is here long term not as stepping stone. But I was just thinking he has to be the most sought after coach of all time after he turned around Stanford and now 49ers.

    He openly stated he wanted the job.

    Wasn't he the one with the severe "potty mouth" that killed his interview?

    That sounds right, but I didn't remember that he openly wanted the job either.

    It wouldn't be surprising, considering the shots he took at USC and Michigan (his alma mater).

    Yes, and the fact that he couldn't tell Pollard what type of offense or defense he would run. He just said that he lets his assistants take care of all that.

    At that time, Harbaugh was willing to take pretty much any college coaching job that would be offered to him.

    At the time my son emailed Jim Harbaugh and even received a polite response. Ever since then he has become a big Stanford and 49'er fan.

    Yes, he let it be publicly known. After that, Pollard cut ties with him. Another brilliant move by him

    He just screws everything up, doesn't he?

    If we could get that idiot out of the way, maybe we could get the athletic department in the best shape its ever been in.

    Jamie Pollard is the probably the best thing that ever happened to ISU athletics.

    Pitchforks are heavy. Can I just send him a picture of one through the e-mail?

    Yes he wanted it. Pollard wasnt happy he was so vocal about the job and his potty mouth. Some poster called his office at the time and got his voice mail and may even have talked to him.

    At the time, I wanted the former Bears QB to become head coach at Iowa State.

    Extremely happy with the way everything has turned out with Rhoads.
