    Pollard: Fans don't appreciate the FB coaching staff

    I'm watching the WOI Channel 5 pre-game and they just interviewed Pollard and he made several statements how he doesn't think the fans appreciate what this coaching staff has done for Iowa State. He goes on to say that fans need to take a trip to Austin or Norman and see the stadium/facilities and realize how much money those programs have.

    And he is exactly right!

    He is right. Mac was 2-0, won an overtime game and the fire Mac crowd was still vocal.

    Yeah...he seemed very passionate about it.

    Also took a shot at Missouri. Gotta like that.

    Re: Pollard: Fans don't appreciate the FB coaching staff

    Of course he said that, he's trying to get the fans to pony up 135 million dollars. And to an extent he's right. But, unfortunately, winning has to happen to get people excited.
    Since he doesn't have that to fall back on, he has to join in the woes me, we're so poor speech.
    Well folks all of the money in the world won't stop this coaching staff from ******* down their legs when it comes time to win a big game.

    That's not completely exact, but damn close.

    I am not any happier with how we have played than you are, but get your facts right. I suspect that most of the folks who say just win our facilities are fine have never been in another stadium.

    Exactly right! Go look at OU's or the Texas stadium and facilities! Just look at the fact that they have HUGE stadiums (which means more money)! We as fans can't get 45,000 when our team is playing for a birth in the Big 12 Championship?!?! Mac gets us to that point and we can't even support the team...so don't just say that winning cures everything.

    Re: Pollard: Fans don't appreciate the FB coaching staff

    I think Pollard is great, but he hasn't been around long enough to truly understand the fans' frustration. He is absolutely right that we don't appreciate them, but its because they haven't done enough! Nobody can expect 10,000 more fans to show up with the utterly erratic behavior of the team over the past decade. Up and down, up and down, there is no consistency. We have a solid fan base, but the tons of people we can bring over aren't coming until they see there will be success and something they will enjoy spending time watching.

    The whole 'I started with nothing' is not an excuse. ISU fans may have had an extended period when we weren't successful, but we don't have a short term memory, we've known success and we've seen it. We are not newcomers to the game of football and are thankful for 6-5 & 7-4 seasons playing in shi$%y destinations in December like Boise and Houston. All we are asking for is to win ONE more game a year. If we could end the regular season with 8 wins, or my god 9 wins, I think everyone would be really happy! I know everyone loved going to the Insight Bowl because it was in Phoenix, an attractive destination in the middle of winter. Oh yeah, we ended the regular season 8-3! And ended up 9-3. That was a satisfying season. Come on Pollard, don't put this on us, we've had enough of mediocre unsatisfying seasons, and those close losses are not our fault.

    I have been to both and there is no comparison. And exactly right about us not even being able to fill the place we have. And yet Mac is getting more and more talent to take a look at ISU every year, he is signing better recruits every year, and he is not only doing it with the facilities that we mentioned he is doing it with one of the smallest budgets. Mac Brown and Stoops have virtually unlimited resources. But oh, yeah I forgot, MAC sucks and we should get rid of him. Everyone that is a MAC hater is going to feel like a real horses *** when we have a breakout year and the program gets to the top for good. Actually probably not, you will just deny the fact that you didn't believe and say that you knew it all along.

    I'm not part of the "MAC sucks" crowd, but when exactly is that break out year coming?.... It ain't going to be this year. Its not going to be next year. And I'm pretty sure its not going to be the year after that, unless our current freshmen are really, really, really, really, really good..
