    WWJD

    We can talk all we want, but ultimately the future of ISU Football rests solely on Jamie Pollard's shoulders. His decision will make or break ISU Football. So the question is: WHAT WILL JAMIE DO?

    CF has a large number of members that post, but there is an even greater number of members that only view posts. There is nothing wrong with that at all, but I want to get a feel for what everyone thinks especially those who don't frequently voice their opinion.

    Re: WWJD

    I think he is going to remove some assistant coaches (Barney) and keep Dan for one more year. If things don't change after one year, Mac is gone.

    Re: WWJD

    I think he will keep Mac and the entire staff no matter what happens and say that what happened this year is unacceptable, and more will be expected next year if he is to keep his job after next year.

    Re: WWJD

    I probably shouldn't, but I am running under the assumption that at very least some assistants will be replaced. I should have included that in the poll.

    I'm pretty certain that will be the case (with the exception of Cotton), even though it's not the outcome I want to see.

    Re: WWJD

    If you are going to give DM one more year you might as well let him coach out his enitre contract. If you look at next year it is only going to get harder. The schedule is:
    Kent State
    UNI
    Iowa
    @Toledo
    @Nebraska
    @Texas Tech
    Texas
    Oklahoma
    @Missouri
    Kansas State
    Colorado
    @Kansas

    If based on this years performance so far I only see three or four wins next year. Then everyboby will complain as to why did we keep him after last year.

    Re: WWJD

    Hey hey hey what is all of this firing Dan talk. He is the best that a lousy football school like Iowa State can ever hope to get.

    We as Cyclone fans need to know our place in the universe.

    Ok anyway, that was a shout out to the national pundits.

    Let Mac go while he still has some dignity. He looks like a beaten puppy on the sidelines, my God show some compassion. Everyday he remains football coach after this season sets the program back even further. I don't know why this even a debate anymore.

    And if the trigger is not pulled after this season, the JP will take a GIANT step down in my eyes.

    Re: WWJD

    I think Mac needs at least one win, and possibly two. With that said, I still am pretty sure that Pollard will keep him and look to drop an assistant or two.

    Re: WWJD

    The problem with dropping the assistants is like has been said, it has been done before to no result only 3 years ago. If you listened to Jamie on the McCarney Monday night show he basically told everyone that he would never tell Dan how to do his job and telling Dan who to keep on his staff or when someone has to go will not ever be a responsibility of his. And if you think that Dan is going to just cut Cotton or Skldany without being forced, you don't know much about Dan. So I truly believe the only change in the coaching staff if one is made would be a clean sweep. Personally, I will leave the decision to Jamie.

    "Clear them little bottles off. And when I get off the phone here, call up Hyman and tell him I want it wall to wall with John Daniels."

    "Don't you mean Jack Daniels?"

    "He may be Jack to you son, but when you've known him as long as I have... that's a joke."


    Yeah well, ya know, that's just, like uh, your opinion, man.
