    You're the AD...

    You're in Pollard's position. What are your thoughts? What are you thinking? If I am the AD, knowing the contract of the current coach is extensive, it doesn't mean this game isn't an earmark for what the future holds. There is a LOT riding on keeping fans interested in Iowa State FB. A LOT. You cannot build that new south endzone knowing that a certain amount of fans are going to start becoming not interested on a regular basis. I would look at this season as two wins maximum based on what I saw today. I wouldn't do anything in terms of getting rid of Rhoads at the end of the season even if we went 0-12. But next year would be it. The team must win at least 7 games with what we have and anything less is it. And I realize that means a huge buyout but a string of crappy seasons just can't fly in this day and age and to keep donors and the fan base GROWING, a change would have to be made I think. Just curious what others would do if you're the AD.

    Re: You're the AD...

    I wouldn't fire anyone until the end of the season. Just see where this ends up. If we can somehow pull 4 or 5 wins out of this shipwreck then it's progress from last season, and it would make the decision a bit more difficult. If it's anywhere from 0-2 wins I cant see CPR staying any longer.

    Since I know that I don't have the money available to do anything, I probably make some calls or put feelers out to gauge the pulse of bigger donors and see if that money is potentially available.

    I also look at my pledge to raise ticket prices for next year and tremble at the drop in ticket sales that is coming without some kind of action on my part.

    If I was JP, I'd probably call the NDSU AD for some advice. "Look dude, we just paid you $350k to come down here and beat our ***. I'm not so good at hiring football coaches. Give me some help here."

    Well - the guy who built that program is currently at Wyoming. I'm not really sure any longer - but I think we're still a better destination than them....

    I'd hire the entire NDSU staff. Then we could actually be KSU.

    Re: You're the AD...

    So when is the last time ISU hired a head coach for football, that was a head coach at the collegiate level prior coming to ISU?

    Maybe Pollard should try that and see what happens..

    Walden. A lot of people wanted a former head coach when Rhoads was hired. Thing is a lot of the top names that come to mind now are coordinators.

    Well, things are so bad that the Iowa boards don't care enough to make fun of us. In most years they fear us.... not this year. Can we demote CPR to defensive coordinator and make Mangino our HC?
