    Iowa State's AD Trolled All Players United On Twitter Today

    Thoughts on his Twitter-Rant and the ramifications?

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    Personally, I agree with what most of he's saying. I thought it was interesting when the tweets were showing up in my feed, kinda cool to see it on Deadspin.

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    I agree with what he is saying 100%, but he probably should of not said it as I see no way it can help recruiting (not saying it can hurt, but definitely does not help)

    Don't think much will come of it. Maybe some time covered on local media for a day.

    He may be right, but seriously that was dumb.

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    This issue combined with the eventual decline of enrollment in traditional "brick and mortar" universities will destroy collegiate athletics within 20 years. Just my opinion.

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    In my opinion, his tweets are far from a tirade. He is stating his long held opinion on this subject. Personally, I do not see why it is getting so much publicity today; especially on KXnO. Personally, I would be o.k. with a small monthly stipend being paid to football and men's basketball players; however, I do not think there is a way to make it work due to Title IX. Go Cyclones!

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    We don't need another arena football, I agree with that. Student-athletes do get their hand held to graduation if they want to be successful which leads to a lot more money down the road in their careers on top of free school.

    Obviously my thoughts are out there now. I just think this has the potential for some backlash at a time (W/L record) where we need all the help we can get.

    Re: Pollard on Deadspin

    I like the rebuttal tweets.

    Al @JebusHChrist @IASTATEAD Why would anyone pay your players?
