    Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    Out of the names I have heard the media throwing around so far Harbaugh, Bennet, Brewster, Norvell, Kragthorpe, Price, or someone else...I would say Kragthorpe!

    Want? Brewster. Think it actually will be based on others' and my (limited) sources? Norvell.

    Re: Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    I would say Patterson if we had the choice of any of the names being thrown around. I just don't think Patterson is seriously a choice for us.

    Of the others, I would be willing to take the risk and give Harbaugh a shot. It is a gamble but you must take risks in this business. After Harbaugh, Kragthorpe, Price, Kelly, Brewster are all about the same in my mind. Lastly, and hopefully never, Norvell.

    Chuck, I know you think I'm ignornat for not wanting Norvell because he was a Hawk. I'm not changing my mind, I still don't want Norvell. But I will say this: If Norvell ends up as ISU's coach, I'll learn to support him as strongly as I would anyone we hire.

    I think if you bring Norvell in, you don't sell to many season tickets right off the bat. I would say that's a strike against him in JP's mind.

    I'll take Ditka.

    Re: Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    Ok I got it...I didnt add patterson on here cause I think he would run away as the favorite, and I really dont think me have much of a chance at him, so if you really think it will be him, vote other!

    Re: Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    Dienhart says Norvell is front runner??? I think JP has probably made up his mind, IMO interviews will continue as they have to. Universities always interview even if a decision is made. I hope they interview Mike Price or have they already? The DM Rag says they haven't but who believes that story.

    Re: Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    I'm curious....Norvell obviously isn't the sexiest choice in the world. JP seems to still have a hard on for him from what we've heard. I've talked to a few middle-tier donors and they also say they, along with the majority of their donor pals, want others more than Norvell.

    If the man's hired, how could JP in his right mind decide on that? Norvell's not being supported by a large percentage of the fan-base, the donors ditto, tickets wouldn't sky-rocket from anticipation. Would JP really hire him based on a previous relationship?

    Something doesn't add up, making me think this whole "Norvell is our next coach" thing seem very fishy.

    It could be alot of trial balloon stuff. I'm sure that fan and donor acceptance will play some part in ADJP's overall decision. These names could all be leaks from the AD's office just to see what fan and donor reaction is.

    The others are predominantly Harbaugh, Brewster, and Kragthorpe. It seems the problem with Brewster is he wouldn't be able to take over the position for a while, especially considering the broncos will make the playoffs. One source told me if Brewster was a college coach, he would undoubtedly be our man.

    Re: Who do you want to be ISU's football coach?

    I didn't want to vote other, but if Patterson had been on the list, I would have picked him.

    Instead, I chose Harbaugh. I think balancing the risks, upside potential and budget - he's the best fit.

    Nice Poll. I want Gene Chizek and if we can't get him...well just bring back Dan McCarney!

    It's surprising that Norvell has 2 votes out of 57. Not exactly selling excitement...
