    New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard | The Des Moines Register | DesMoinesRegister.com

    Good to know that Leath plans on letting Pollard do his thing with the athletics department. And understands what role athletics will play in his daily job.

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    “Before I took this job, I asked a couple of athletic directors who are highly respected what they thought about Jamie,” Leath said. “Both told me independently that my number one job in athletics was to keep Jamie Pollard because 80 to 90 percent of my problems would go away.”
    So true. Keep him happy; keep him in Ames.

    That is good news! I hope he follows in the GG mold, and if he does ISU is on a good track.

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    Does anyone have a link to the article saying how Jischke was going to **** over the athletic department? I must have been too young to pay much attention to newspapers

    In all seriousness, I hope Leath is as good as he sounds

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    Playing devils advocate, what else would a new President say? Unless a Athletic Director is hugely unpopular, he's going to hang onto the person a while he figures the situation and the person better.

    It does appear to me the new President and JP are good matches from a personality and management style perspective, but you never know what will happen.

    Really like some of the things Leath has said so far in general. He's answered some potential reporter trap questions very well.

    Actually a lot of ISU success today is due to Jischke's efforts wrt to athletics and it being a front porch to the university. He was the first modern administrator that really saw the value of competitive teams.

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    Leath indicated that the conference calls Tuesday concerned Big 12 membership changes, but declined to say specifically what the issues were.

    “It was about the ones who want to leave and that’s about all I can say,” Leath said.

    “We are getting closer to some resolution.”
    We know what these phone calls were about now:

    execute a settlement agreement with the Big 12 Conference and it members

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    Wow, did I ever read this thread title the wrong way. I thought it meant that he was going to apply pressure to Pollard to get things going the way he wanted it. I'm glad it wasn't that.

    Devils advocate to your devils advocate:
    If he had any negative thoughts he probably wouldn't have made positive comments. If he turns around and fires JP in a year or two, people will ask why he was so positive about him before. Also, his statements really seem to promote the idea that he is pro-athletics which can't be bad.

    Re: New ISU leader says he'll lean on Pollard

    JP is awesome. I am glad the new guy does not want to make a big change there. We need to keep Jamie for a long time. Just think of what could be.
