    Extra Love for Pollard

    I don't think this has been discussed yet, but Pollard really exemplified why he is a good AD with this bowl situation: His conversations with the Liberty Bowl got us the spot over Louisiana Tech. That's a sign of a great AD that I don't think many would have done (read: JVDV)

    He sold the Clones, and now is doing more with cyclones.tv

    Think about what a great recruiting pitch it is to say "We are only one of 3 teams nationally with a devoted television network!" Great work Jamie!

    Best AD we could ask for. He's the man.

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    Great AD! A great fit for the University and obviously has big dreams for the athletic department. The Cyclones.tv announcement is one step closer to the next set of facility updates for the school, not to mention contract extensions for our top coaches (although most of that is already set for a while.)

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    Cyclone.tv is huge and a big step for our Athletic Department. So happy we're not stuck in Shreveport this year. Pollard has been an amazing AD, especially the last week.

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    Pollard is a great AD, no doubt about it.

    Though, I hope that it didn't take too much hard work to convince Liberty Bowl to select us over LaTech.

    It may only be Mediacom, but it's still probably more tv sets then the Longhorn Network!

    Definitely in the right direction. The Mediacom deal is short term.... we have to take the small steps to take bigger ones.

    That's a good point. And it's amazing that it is probably true.

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    Anyone catching him on Murph and Andy now? Man, I appreciate him as a person and as an AD. If you need to, go listen to the podcast.

    He is also a humble person and listens to the fans.

    Safe travels to vb team heading to CA. Also sending band & spirit squad to support team even though NCAA doesn't fund it (extra $75,000).
    Thought this was great

    I don't do signatures. Blondes, brunettes, and red heads are a different story.

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    He is kicking *** lately, seriously.

    The deal with Mediacom is just his most recent example, we are getting more and more exposure for no additional cost or headache. The new football building is awesome. I like him because he doesn't always give the politically correct answer, he connects well with people.

    I just hope when Alvarez retires, they don't poach him....I can see it happening though.

    Re: Extra Love for Pollard

    So, I don't know much how bowl selection works. How close were the Cyclones to not getting into a bowl this year? Was that much of a possibility?
