    I thought that the Pollard interview was happening in the five o'clock hour on M&M. And yes their show steams on the net at KXNO's website.

    Re: Jamie Pollard Interview

    It was on right at 5pm. Most of it was football talk which Jamie basically said our fans need to stop being so impatient. Talked about some of the crazy emails he gets, how we need to look more of a "macro view" as an entire department and how programs will feed off each other and such. They asked some very tough questions and Jamie did a good job of putting it all into a "realistic" perspective.

    Every time I hear this guy talk I am SOOOO glad we have him as an AD.

    Re: Jamie Pollard Interview

    Wasn't it just a little while ago he was talking about how he was glad the fans were upset by losing? Doesn't sound like he's going to pull the trigger on McCarney's job unless we truly tank (like don't win another game this year). I think he's really going on the defensive regarding our football coaching. I mentioned how he had used the facilities excuse before the Texas game and he responded by saying I miscaracterized his statement. Does anyone know the exact wording of that statement btw?

    Re: Jamie Pollard Interview

    McCarney is sort of in a good position as far as Pollard is concerned. For one, I think Pollard just compares budgets of all the Big 12 schools and sees how competitive we have been the past few years. McCarney is sort of getting a clean slate from Pollard, in my opinion. And I guess if you compare football to some of our other sports, we are performing OK.

    As great as Pollard is, he is Mac's little biatch. Dont believe me? Please ask any other employee of the athletic department before you decide to disagree.

    Is our season realistic? That's what I thought. No surprises. If history serves right, we beat the lousy teams at home and on the road the rest of the year, just good enough for Shreveport.

    Re: Jamie Pollard Interview

    Jamie said it best in his interview when he pointed out that he has to look at everything at ISU in a Macro Economic perspective. He isn't going to come in and fire a coach after 12 years in his first year of tenure unless he thinks that the entire program is not going in the right direction at all. I realize that there is a select group that looks at the way they think things are going and want the change immediately. However you need to look through his role as A.D. and see that unless attendance figures drop way below average and the big donors start making some noise that it is going to take a few years before anything is done.

    CY ST8T hit the button. Mac bought years after the change of leadership. Pollard is a bright person. Pollard was very forthright with Morgan, perhaps quick on the trigger with the Douglas thing, but it to was the right move. I can only feel Mac is under close scrutiny, his coaching style is change minimally to make the next step. Ol'Mac better become more innovative with his staff and recruiting.

    Did he say anything about possible assistant coaching changes?

    I am not trying to say that your sources aren't correct but I know quite a few people that work in the Athletic Department and I have never heard anything like that. I have heard JP and Mac have a good working relationship and a very open channel of communication which IMO is important to the success of the program.

    Re: Jamie Pollard Interview

    Not to mention Pollard hasn't been around for the 12 years of Mac ball to experience for himself the "kick in the gut" we get.

    But, I still think something will have to change at years end. My guess. Assisstants. Otherwise people aren't going to pony up for season tickets to see the same thing over again. They will have to put a new twist on next year. Just like any product.
