    A conversation w/ Bill Fennelly (on much more than just WBB)

    Part two of my offseason conversation series...

    This is a long piece but a must-read for all Iowa State fans of any sport. Coach and I dig deep on the progress he has seen here in 18 years. Plus, did you know that coach almost quit after the 2011-12 season?

    I really think you all will enjoy this. Thanks for reading.

    Good read. Thanks for this Chris

    I think Fennelly would be in my "5 ISU People to Have a Beer With" List. Maybe even in my non-ISU list

    Thanks for the kind words everybody. I am glad that you all enjoyed the piece. I knew that you would. Fennelly is as honest and genuine of an interview as anybody I have ever worked with.

    Chris - Good stuff as always. Any thoughts of touching on the non-Fennelly members of the staff. We have read a lot about Billy and Steven and Bill's thoughts on them but what about the roles of JS & LS.

    Re: A conversation w/ Bill Fennelly (on much more than just WBB)

    My only complaint is that it was too short. I know it sounds funny with a long interview like that, but it just made me want more.

    I would really like to hear Bill's candid take on his relationship with Jack Easley. Is there more to the story than Jack just going back home to OSU?

    Great work, CW!

    The book Bill could write might be called, "The Glory Years of Iowa State Athletics." He has seen it all. My first thought when I read Bill's tweet that you had interviewed him? I was jealous. As much time as I spend following and writing about the sisters, it would be a real treat to have some sit down time with coach.
