    Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    Thank you JP, for your energy, passion and commitment for ISU and you have been here only a year. Thank you ISU marketing for coming up w/ creative ways for ISU fans to purchase more seats than normal. Thank you ISU fans for this commitment! But as my uncle would say "you can only try to polish a turd so much and if you do and if you try, always remember it is still a turd and still crap!". In closing I hope JP takes back his pre-game woulds he spoke on ABC and makes a change at year end. I hope the next coach starts construction on Mac's foundation by building up vs. digging in the basement for the last ten years!

    Re: Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    I agree, the team looked very blah......and I think this coaching staff is a little blah with their play calling and lack of aggresisveness. When Nebraska scored right before half I thought to myself, would our coacing staff go for that TD or take a knee? Mac would have taken a knee.........

    Re: Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    who are we going to beat this year?
    At #14Oklahoma, KSU and Colorado...ok maybe 2 wins?
    At home #25TT, Kansas, #24Missouri...no way.

    That puts us 5-7? Hey that means no bowl which means no way we land the recruits we need. Again more patch work w/ the OL. We have had Zehr and Brandt for 4 years...4 frickin years and all we could do is bring in 1 guy in 2 of those Stephenson to put together a crappy OL.

    I'm done.

    Digging in the Basement the last 10 years???

    Boy what a bunch of fair weather fans. I bet if we won it, you would have said the greatest game ever played.

    Yeah it was ugly, but when most of your defensive starters are new and you have no running game, that's what happens. Acually I though the D line played well and the O line under acieved once again.

    Actually we perfected the art of losing under Walden. under McCarney, we have perfected being good enough to have hope, and failing to live up to expectations of the fans.

    Re: Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    All of you calling for McCarney's head are morons. I agree that a change may be needed. But, why you all think that a coaching change is going to be made mid season is beyond me, and even after the season for that matter as this program doesn't have the money to buy out McCarney's contract and get a high profile coach in here that would take us to the next level in under 10 years. So relax, nothing is going to happen next week or even this off-season, so calm down and save yourselves from heat-attacks from worrying about things that won't change right now.

    Re: Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    ...I'm just as frusterated as the next clone, but enough is enough. I honestly can't see the marketing dept. continue to pack the fans in week after week. Mac is now in his 12th year as head coach. He is recruiting players today that were in kindergarden & the 1st grade when he accepted the job. Last year we were 5 plays away from a possible undefeated season (or at least pretty darn respectable) ...this year we're about 5 plays away from not having a win at all. No offense mac, (no pun intended) but I just think you might wanna re work your resume a little harder than your defense.

    I doubt anyone here is thinking that it will be made mid season. They want it done after this mediocre season is over.

    I have been a ISU fan 60,yes 60 years. I've seen many ISU teams on their deathbeds,and this is definately one of them!
    Mac is a great guy and has representated ISU well,but the coaching is BAD!!! Time to move on,again.

    Uh, no, I think if we won, we still would have said how we felt the team played. If we barely scraped by, not playing very well, we would have said "We didn't play very well... but thak God we got the W!"

    If we played well, and we won, we would have said, "Hey, that was great! We played awesome!"

    So, yeah, I think a large majority of us would have given a fair assessment of the game, not what you suggested. At least I haven't seen much in particular to think that most of the people here are "fair weather fans" in the sense that you are suggesting. Just some people aren't always particularly optimistic, which says nothing about their level as a fan. Fan does NOT = optimistic. (or even the opposite).

    Very few of the assesments(mine included) on this site are "fair".

    We're all couch Athletic Directors and Coaches.

    Now if any of of you are Division 1 coaches or Athletic Directors your opinion will carry some weight for me at least as I know you're walking in these guys shoes.

    Re: Poor Pollard, ISU marketing and the stadium expansion!

    One thought to think about... If Mac did go, I believe Blythe would likely do aswell. Why stay around for one year with a "rebuilding" coach?
