    Here is what I am hearing...

    OK, I will start with a disclaimer that Jeremy's sources are better than mine. If he refutes the below I would trust him.

    That said...

    The people who are getting at least some consideration which in multiple cases includes interview are:

    Harbaugh
    Norvell
    Kragthorpe
    Price
    Brewster
    Kelly
    Rhoades
    Patterson

    Harbaugh has been a favorite throughout the process and as we know interviewed Friday. For reasons unknown to me or anyone I talked to, while it is very possible he will ultimately be the guy, there are a couple of others that are strong possibilities.

    Don't expect the next coach to have a moving truck coming from Nebraska or Pittsburg. If it is not Harbaugh expect it to be one of the following....Price, Kragthorpe, Kelly. The current slide has hurt Kragthorpe, but he is the type of person that JP likes.

    Again, I am not predicting or suggesting I have JP's thoughts. I am just relating what a person usually reliable told me yesterday. Take it for what it is worth.

    If Patterson is even remotely interested - I'd be disappointed if we didn't interview him.

    However, I've heard/read nothing to suggest he is interested at this point.

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    The more Kragthorpe loses, the better I like our chances with him.

    Fans were gushing over him, now they are questioning him, and a friend of mine down there thinks he's overpaid, etc.

    I would GLADLY take Kragthorpe off their hands.

    I don't think Patterson will be the guy either.

    I still Like the Price connection, we don't have to worry about Density making the trip with him. That Baggage was left in Alabama, he has repented. They love this guy in El Paso, respectablity has returned to the miners program.

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    At this point, i would have a hard time being too disappointed with Harbaugh, Kragthorpe, Kelly, or Price. Any of the 4 would be a solid, positive hire in my opinion. I was iffy on Kelly before, but I think he would bring the kind of offensive scheme (spread) that we need at ISU.

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    Problem with Kragthorpe is how do you sell him to the base after the losses? Not happy with losing games you should win with Mac well welcome to losing to Rice and SMU... Not saying he isn't a great coach, but while he may be more "available", he is also a much tougher sell now to a base that is being asked for $$ and tickets.

    Agreed. I hope we at least get an interview with him, if only to see how he stands up against the others. Can't hurt, right?

    I don't think that JP would look too poorly on Kragthorpe; he fits JP's characteristics fairly well.

    I'm surprised I've missed anyone, but who is Price?


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.

    Price is the coach at UTEP now (pretty successful) after getting fired from Alabama before he even started:

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    My gut feeling has been that Patterson and Kragthorpe are the two coaches that have the best profiles relative to what I beleive JP is targeting. The big question for me is whether either is interested in ISU.

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    Kragthorpe is willing to leave, Patterson is a real question mark. He played and coach at TCU. Is he a TCU lifer? If not would he leave Texas?

    Yeah he got fired right at the same time as Eustachey, and for similar reasons. I dont think it would be good PR for us to hire him based on that situation.

    Re: Here is what I am hearing...

    M&M actually had a good take (for once) about Price. It's a hire that JP would have to defend if he did it and they don't see JP taking that big of a risk in this situation. He likes the big names but the big names that are young, energetic, and have clean reps and Price doesn't fit any of those categories. In fact apparently Price's alcohol problems were a problem (a lot like Larry's where everyone knew but no one did anything about it) before they became public in a scandal.

    Price is 60. I know about age discrimination, but come on.....How long term is that?
