    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    We probably ran him off just like we did Tom Herman.

    Besides, Earl won a national championship as an assistant at Ohio State underneath Woody Hayes and alongside Lou Holtz. Ohio State was probably a dream job for him.

    Fair enough, I am not either but the two sides always butt heads in these discussions. Its just the same ole same ole from people every time this is debated.

    Well, if you read all the way through, you might see that we achieved some sort of compromise. :)

    What would Jack Trice look like with alcohol sales? It would become Kinnick Stadium II. The introduction of alcohol into that environment is a recipe for disaster and lots of complaints. I'm for the option of taking care of it in the parking lots.

    People are going to drink regardless. There are plenty of people that already sneak alcohol in the games with them and go out to the tailgate lots to slam a few more beers before the 2nd half, not to mention the number of people slamming beers right before the game to keep their buzz going during the game. The stadium selling beer really won't change the atmosphere much; I just think the university is missing out on an opportunity to make money.

    I don't know a single person around me that doesn't drink now in the stadium. That includes cans of beer.

    Three eight-win seasons and he became "ol' 8-3 Earle" in the eyes of many -- as if that type of success was a regular thing at ISU.

    Even had it not been Ohio State, Earle may still have left sooner instead of later anyway thanks to that type of attitude permeating the fan base.

    Maybe it's just because I'm a recent college grad, and have a different mindset than some of you, but no need to pretend that we're having record ticket sales just because of the product on the field.

    I thought it was a great interview. Much more air time than I was expecting.

    Re: Pollard on KXNO

    Not mentioned yet but I liked his comment about ticket pricing. He basically said that ISU charges what we need to charge to pay the bills and we don't try to get more just because we can (like Kansas basketball does, he even mentioned them by name). Said he takes increasing ticket prices seriously and tries to make sure fans know why prices are increasing.

    I've been critical of football ticket prices compared to the amount of success we've had but that was a good answer and I understand why prices are what they are.

    All in all, a REALLY good interview and discussion.

    Seriously we knew exactly where this was headed.

    And for the teetotalers (jk) have you ever been to an NFL game? It's not sodom and gomorrah with people vomiting all over each other.

    I found vomit in my seat at a Barnstormers game before, however that was there before the game started.

    (Not a teetotaler, since I and my beer moved to a nearby open seat.)

    My first Iowa Cubs game was Budweiser Night. Beer was spilled on all, and it didn't get better from there.

    People are free to do what they want. It's not my thing, and it looks more pleasant to me to just stay home from the events where people are more inclined to drink heavily. That's not my world, so it's an easy choice.
