    Jamie Pollard on KXNO

    Pretty interesting interview with Pollard on Murph 'n' Andy today.

    *Told a story about an angry email he had gotten from someone who was mad that season tickets were sold out so early, because they wanted tickets to be available later so they'd know if they could make it to all of the games

    *Re: SEZ, he said "We haven't won at a level that most organizations win at in order to get the support that were getting from our fans" so he wants to see more wins before bowling it in

    *Said that the mock-up they have of SEZ from five years ago might be what the seating looks like, but they will be working more with the university as a whole to plan the whole project as an entrance to the university; implied that the university may fund part of the project but that they definitely need a big-time donor

    *Also about the Hawks, said "When I started, Iowa State didn't matter and it was all Iowa. We took some haymakers and potshots.... We're now at a spot where we don't have to do it that way." Talked about how ISU as an institution is becoming more and more prominent.

    I mostly wanted to share the email story since I know I have emailed JP at least 100 times thanks to the urgings of CF posters.

    Re: Jamie Pollard on KXNO

    I feel like emailing JP right now. Just need to find something to get mad at first. I think I'll complain that the SEZ should've been done this year so I can buy season tickets.

    On a slightly more serious note, thanks for the info. I don't think JP ever thought he would have a fan get mad that he couldn't buy a season ticket due to them being sold out.

    Re: Jamie Pollard on KXNO

    It was a nice interview, but I'm tired of the media doing the Iowa comparisons. Our two institutions are very different and neither should be using one another as a benchmark.

    Sounds like the SEZ is a long ways away, unless someone ponies up $50 million

    Re: Jamie Pollard on KXNO

    I really hope that the email thing is just a joke. That person is an idiot for being upset that season tickets sold out. Even if you can't make it to all the games, buy the dang tickets! That way you can't be even ironically upset, and can sell your tickets (maybe even for a markup if the game is big enough) and it's not a problem.

    Dear Jaime,

    Please reserve season tickets for those of us who are not sure if we're going to buy.

    It's not just football. A buddy of mine is looking to get Court Cy'd seats or lower level for bball and they are out. These are 2,500 and 5,000 donation levels (2 corners on the lower level are 1,000).

    I deal with similar calls every single day. People want it both ways and get mad if it's not that way. You'd be surprised how many smart people are actually pretty dumb.

    Just comes down to this: People want it their way, no matter how crazy their way is.

    If JP would just maintain a trashy football program, tickets would be available anytime anybody wanted. It's his fault for hiring a worthwhile coach.

    I don't think we need 50 million from someone to start the project. I am guessing they would start the plan with a $25mil and a fewer smaller donations (using small loosely there). I am guessing 25-30mil gets it started.

    The problem is I don't think we have that many alums that can just cut a check for $25 million. And most the business are going to want naming rights or something.

    Re: Jamie Pollard on KXNO

    From listening to that interview it sounds like Pollard wants to talk to the university and have them contribute some of the money to make it a high quality, beautiful doorway into campus.

    They asked him if they need a big donor and he replied (paraphrasing) "The institution needs to consider what they want it to be and look like"

    Would be a good way to get a big chunk of the money we need.

    Dr. Jamie,
    Obviously I'm super upset that I cannot buy season tickets. I love Coach Rodes! I will go ahead then and purchase a parking pass for Section C4. You leave me no choice but to try and scalp tickets for the games we may or may not attend. The $50 check is in the mail.

    He actually mentioned this in the interview directly and said that when he started as AD, people could wait until Saturday to decide if they wanted to go to the game, then walk up to the ticket counter and buy them. Times have changed quite a bit.

    Now you people walk up begging to buy on your way in.
    If you stop to sell a ticket, beware the mob that may form around you. That even counts an hour early for MBB.
