    Pollards stock is sky high

    With the great coaching hires and the resulting successes in MBB and Football, any one else worried about other schools courting Pollard?

    Nope. Pollard is a clone to the bone.

    Nope, not worried about it. Pollard already has a job at Wiscy, whatshisnuts is just waiting for him to finish the SEZ, just ask Becky!

    Never worried about this. I'd love him to continue his career here, but if a bigger school calls and he wants to move on, all the best to him. It's part of a career.

    Re: Pollards stock is sky high

    I would tend to agree that Pollard's stock is probably climbing. Most people can see that ISU athletics is moving in a very good direction and Pollard has hired the two coaches responsible. He's done a very good job, and that's coming from someone that was pretty unimpressed after Chizik and Gmac.

    Re: Pollards stock is sky high

    I have a colleague who is a HOF swimmer at Minnesota and is on the search committee for Minnesota's new AD. I keep trying to see where they're at in the search, without making it obvious that I am really only interested in whether they're looking at Pollard.

    I dont' think Pollard would leave, but the Athletic budget of a B10 school would probably be pretty appealing to anybody.

    I'd rather have a hot commodity because he is killing it than a lame duck content with floating by.

    I would be very worried if DMACC came calling. Other than that, he is here to stay.

    Re: Pollards stock is sky high

    I would personally think eventually a conference commissioner. But I think his kids are a strong draw to keep him here.

    Also, despite his initial experience at Wisconsin, I don't see him fitting the B1G culture.

    Found a nice short interview:
    A conversation with… Jamie Pollard, Director of Athletics, Iowa State University. | Iowa Food and Family Project


    May my posts be polite and not misunderstood. (And hopefully funny on occasion.)

    Re: Pollards stock is sky high

    I don't think he would leave either, and I haven't heard of anyone talking to him. He's done such a good job here in the last couple of years that I think he would be in line for a nice pay increase.

    As long as we can keep emailing him I don't care where he is.
