    Kelly has to noon to decide upon future at ISU

    I have heard from multiple sources that Kelly has until noon to sign the contract presented by Jamie Pollard. What that contract is, I don't know. But if Kelly does decide to accept, he is our next head coach.

    Good, BUT!

    I realize the need to hire a new coach, but I don't think we should put a guy in this position. He is playing for a Conference Championship Thursday. He and CMU deserve the right to prepare for that game without distraction.

    My immediate thought is Michigan and Bill Frieder in 1988 or 89. Arizona State insisted on making an announcement and Bo let Bill Frieder go on the eve of the NCAA tournament. Something like "A Michigan guy is going to coach Michigan."

    If Kelly is the guy and we are forcing his hand to appease "big doners" and the rest of us with some announcement before his final regular season game, I feel we are showing little class.

    I don't think I believe this. Doesn't make a lot of sense - especially on a Sunday.

    Re: Kelly has to noon to decide upon future at ISU

    Noon is being mentioned for several different offers at MSU, ISU, etc. It's not just ISU's contract offer that supposedly revolves around that time.


    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.

    A deadline to decide? I wonder if this is how this would come down. We will see.

    Or noon next Sunday? Does anyone have Pollard's cell phone #, I'm sure he wouldn't mind a call from me trying to figure out what the HELL is going on!
