    Bill Fennelly

    “It’s a very emotional time,” women’s basketball coach Bill Fennelly said. “There are a lot of people that invest a lot of energy in what Iowa State is about. This is a very, very special place.”
    “If I could even give Iowa State one-tenth of what they’ve given me it would be a miracle,” Fennelly said.

    Good article, but the comment at the bottom was bad.

    With all of the bad news flying around lately we all need to embrace the people that we still have here that bleed cardinal and gold. Bill Fennelly is what I want in every coach. He has always represented this university with class and dignity.

    Re: Bill Fennelly

    Was that comment damning McCarney or praising him? I can't figure it out. "He held on to coordinators that were his friends" (nothing about them being any good), "was a terrible gameday coach"

    Why is this thread now about McCarney? One stupid comment. I meant for this to be about Bill.

    Re: Bill Fennelly

    BF is a total class-act. I watched his press conference yesterday, and over 1/2 of it the media was still on hangover from the Pollard interview and talked to BF about it. He had some really classy things to say.

    Not to hijack this post, but Jamie Pollard went up 10 notches on my ladder yesterday. I got to thinking about what he and BF said. You know, ISU does offer a lot. We have several teams, WBB, Volleyball, Cross Country, Gymnastics, Wrestling that have earned national recognition, why not football. I am on the edge of my chair for Wrestling to earn a National title. And I would love to see WBB back in the sweet sixteen. I have also been impressed with our softball team and our coach's recruiting there. I have faith in McDermott too, I just wish this team would start jelling.

    But, Fennelly is the mold. He is the man. I have been impressed with him since day numero uno, and even though I can't make it to games because I live in Wisconsin, I follow this team close because of him.

    He and Pat Summit are my favorite coaches.

    That was probably the dumbest comment I've ever read. I'm holding out hope that it was a third grader. "Sure he was a terrible gameday coach, but he was loyal." I like loyalty as much as the next guy, but I also like to be competitive.
    *not talking about cardinal&gold's quote either, I meant on the article itself.

    Bill was probably my favorite guy to interview when I worked in the newspaper industry. He was always welcoming, forthcoming and quick with a joke...or a light of your smoke I bet if you were at the bar, but i digress. He is tough on his players, but lifts them up when they need it. When he came to ISU, you could go to the women's game at tipoff and sit right in front. Now you have to buy tickets in advance. He deserves every dime, and more, ISU pays him.
    I think we should put him at the head of the coach search committe, heck throw his hat in the ring as coach.

    Re: Bill Fennelly

    I've had the pleasure to meet Coach Fennelly on several occasions and he is what every coach should be. More than that though he is a great person. I think that when he is done coaching and if Jamie would go to Wisconsin when Barry Alvarez retires, Coach Fennelly would be a perfect fit for AD. He understands what it takes to win in major collegiate athletics not just as a coach but what it takes overall as an athletic department and he's an Iowa Stater through and through.

    Bill Fennelly should be given a lifetime contract. I don't want to even THINK about him with anyone except Iowa State!

    Something needs to be named after him.

    He did the one thing that's more difficult than what he did making a successful program....he made people care.
