    Gopher AD Steps Aside - Stay Away From JP!!

    News conference going on right now. Joel Maturi is stepping aside. I'm sure they'd love to have JP on board. I just hope JP wants to stay put.

    JP will not be going anywhere.

    I don't think so either, but if I was the new U of M President, I'd be pitching him a pretty sweet deal based on what JP's accomplished.

    I dont think we need to worry about him leaving. He has said hes turned down jobs other places. He likes it here and doubt with his son being sick, that he'd up and move his family.

    That's good news for Minnesota fans. I don't think there are a lot of Maturi fans.

    That and Pres. Leath mentioned in his interview that he knows its very important to keep him around, if an offer came in i'm sure he'd do everything it took to keep him here.

    Re: Gopher AD Steps Aside - Stay Away From JP!!

    Good news for U of MN, but I don't think JP would leave "in the middle" of executing his plan.

    If JP "finishes" the plan, I could see him taking a huge payday somewhere else.

    We should email him to stay put.

    In all seriousness, don't think he's going anywhere. He has a family and Ames is a great place for a family. Also something to think about in his decision.

    When Barry retires at Wisconsin, Jamie will take that spot.

    I feel the same way. If Wisconsin comes calling, I think he'd be hard pressed not to take that job.

    job is never done. if and when he leaves, there will always be something unfinished here. but i get the feeling he likes his safe and secure job in a bcs conference small family town.

    Re: Gopher AD Steps Aside - Stay Away From JP!!

    Eh, what is there to like about the Minny job? Hoops isn't so great, football hasn't been anything special for years. They are a college program buried in a pro town. It just doesn't seem like there is much interest in Gopher athletics. ISU seems to be on the rise in many sports, has growing fan support, has a ton of untapped potential, and doesn't have to worry about playing second fiddle to pro teams. I just don't see this being that great of an opportunity for JP. Agreed with others that Wiscy would be something more to worry about, especially with him having history there.
