    He'll probably wait for something like that until the ladies finish their run in the tourney.

    Probably wouldn't be a bad idea since the guys finished the season on a 2-12 stretch. It's a long time until football season.

    He's going to announce an entire new MBB coaching staff of Mike Krzyzewski, John Wooden, and Bobby Knight, in order to please and appease some irrational fans.


    Forever trying to find a cure for the Dunning-Kruger Effect.

    Not much Pollard can say anymore. He just has to sit back like the rest of us and hope Greg and Gene begin to produce. You can only sell hope for so long.

    Not true - he can tell us that stage 2 of the Trice renovations has been moved up to be done IMMEDIATELY!

    Re: Now that the season is over, will Pollard...

    I had hoped this morning that people would have stopped the negativity toward the coaching staff, after watching the game last night.
    GMAC had an excellent game plan. Our defensive and offensive strategy put us in a position to win going away.
    When Jiri throws up a goose egg, Rashon does not score, and we shoot 20% from the field, miss countless free throws, specifically front ends of 1 and 1, have 15 offensive rebounds but only score in the 40's, do not blame the coaches. We had countless opportunities from 10' on in, many from 5' or less, and did not score. We threw up air balls and 3's with alot of time on the shot clock.
    Appreciate what we do have, but do not look at the score and state that the game plan was not there.

    Re: Now that the season is over, will Pollard...

    Is it just me, or did an unreal amount of shots for us roll around then out? I counted twelve shots in the 2nd half that rolled around, then fell out. I don't know if the rims were really tight, soft, or what.

    I think there are things Pollard could do. Yes, he could do exactly as you say and sit back, but a true leader finds ways to inspire and more importantly maintain the level of excitement that he's produced to this point.

    Unfortunately, we haven't attained the ultimate goal of achieving on the field/court success as of late. This is an opportune time to give Cyclone Nation some inspiration to talk about with our coworkers.. in this time of darkness.

    Something of the caliber of firm plans for bringing back baseball would be a start...


    "I think that people are responding to someone standing up and saying this is what we want to do and let's not be afraid to go for it,'' Pollard said. "I think Iowa State has a very conservative, modest background. We never pound our chest and say `Let's do it.' It's OK to set a goal. You can't do it if you don't say what you want to do. You should be proud of it.''

    I just think he needs to finish a few things already started. I dont know if i can take anymore excitement. I need some time off from Cyclone sports to rest. This season has me beat. =)

    I gotta tell U that I laughed at your comment "irrational fans"....I would put Jeff Khan @ KxNO in the group, his idea of a good time next year is no less than 8 wins in the big xii conference...


    I'm still willing to give Greg Mac another four years to see what he can do with the mbb program...If after that time he can't get us a big xii championship then it just mite be time to look elsewhere for a coach but until that time, lets just give Mac his opportunity to get it DONE!!!!
