    We need Mark Farley

    ISU needs to hire Mark Farley ASAP.

    Also, Tuberville won five games this year... Chizik won five games in his entire head coaching career. Good luck!

    Lastly, let's don't fret about this. If ISU wasn't good enough for Chizik, forget him.

    We do NOT need Mark Farley. Chris Farley before Mark Farley.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    No on Farley. We have one MVC coach already and he is still recruiting that way. We are going to have to come up with a buyout for him in a year or two...

    Farley does seem to be a good game day coach though....

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    Chris Farley has been dead for 11 years.


    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    Mark Farley would have won more than five games. So would have Dan.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    No, we NEED MORE THREADS ABOUT THIS! First there were dozens of threads about the chizik situation, now there are going to be dozens of threads about who we should hire. Newsflash: your idea is not so great that it deserves its own thread. Stick it in one of the existing threads about our coaching search.

    Try this one.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    That would be a great hire, IMO. I remember all the Ohio State fans up in arms after Jim Tressel from lowly Youngstown State was named as their coach. The rest is history...

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    GMac already put us in a situation that even if JP wanted to hire Coach Farley...JP couldn't do it! Fanbase would be livid! That said...is there a better coach out there for use to hire? Most of us thought Chizik was that guy...most of us don't feel that way any longer!

    No way. Don't want Mark Farley under any circumstances.

    Farley does seem to be a good game day coach though....
    Tressel was at that level and seems to recruit just fine....having said that, I still don't think he will be a candidate.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    If we hire Mark Farley, I'll be calling for Jamie Pollard's head the next day. I've personally met the man and he does not impress me.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    Farley seems like a very good guy and coach. But hope for a higher named coach. Just for the fan support.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    How many FCS championships has Farley won? How many had Tressel won? Discussion over.

    Re: We need Mark Farley

    Every farley mention should get u banned. No way Mac lets JP hire him. Nobody even likes him at UNI regardless of 1AA success. How'd terry allen work out?

    Just because GMac and Farley coached at the same school - so what? Does that mean our VB coach Christy Johnson is like Chizik?
