    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    He came to ISU so he could get a job like IU. Let's hope he gets some results here before he bolts.

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    I think it's way too early for him to leave. He has a lot of projects in the works and none have been finished. He has certainly made a world of difference but the results on several key initiatives are still out so it's hard to judge him fully for a couple more years.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    I think Pollard has too much invested in ISU projects to just bolt at this time.

    If he bolts... the new AD will sure have a lot on their plate!

    I hope not. We need him - he's doing one heck of a job.

    A job like IU??? That school has HALF of the football fan base of ISU - it's a tough job for anyone. Basketball expectations are way too high (even Knight fell off big-time his last five years there), and their budget doesn't do justice to all of their sports. Outside of maybe NW, it's the most challenging AD job in the Big Ten; a step down from Iowa State.

    i concur. but again, JP along with Gene and Greg are family men who seem to want a place to settle for a decade or two and raise their families.

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    He has things left to accomplish here. He has said he is a builder. There are things left to build. He'll always have job opportunities. He is good and people know it.

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    If JP is offered the job and goes so be it - nothing for us to do. I used to think that losing Gene Smith would be the worst thing for ISU and it did prove that like any job if you make a hiring mistake (BVD) it's bad but then we got JP. ISU has a load of potential and there are others out there that would love a chance to take up where JP left off.

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    I don't see IU as the kind of job he'd want. Too many hyper-expectant fans for a "builder".


    I'm baaack! See my Hot Milk For Breakfast blog under Social Groups for more details

    Re: Pollard to Indiana?

    Indiana is a school that is THANKING GOD for the Big Ten's equal revenue sharing $$ - otherwise they would never make it at the level they're at.
