    Why Not Steve Loney?

    I haven't had a chance to read much this week but I think Loney might be the man. NFL coach who can develop O-lineman. The RB's will want to come because of great blocking. I know he is not the flashiest but would be loyal and work very hard. And it is HIS dream job. Go ahead and make fun of me now.

    And here we go again....


    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    It would all depend what kind of recruiting contacts that his asst. coaches had. Kinda like we thought of McD when he was hired. Loney isnt that much different than Calhoun at Air Force, but he has handled a D-1 program the last 2 years and won. Loney was head at Drake.

    It won't be Loney. He may be loyal etc, but no way imo.

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    Loney has been an avearge Asst coach at best! I know he loves ISU but we need someone better than that. We need a guy who can come here and motivate our guys and keep them pumped up to stay here and I dont think Loney would do that

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    Loney does not have enough flash and sizzle for Pollard's tastes.


    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: Why Not Steve Loney?

    The biggest problem with coaching searches is that fans want a wow guy and a good coach - those two just aren't going to go together for a school like Iowa State. Chizik was a wow guy, Loney is a good coach. Pollard has already picked his wow guy in Chizik, now will he pick a good coach?


    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.

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    I guess the real question would be WHY?

    His last 3 stops in the Pros have been less than impressive. Vikings, Cardinals and now the Rams. He finished 6-5 at Drake and one of those wins was on a Hail Mary. Plus, you talk of loyalty. But then why did he leave us to go to the Gophers and then leave us again so we had to hire Coach Marty Fine who wasn't so fine. I really want a HC at a college program. Bill Cubit or Butch Jones would be better than Loney.

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    Is there any way we could lure TCU's Patterson ? And is there any weight to the Pat Hill rumors?

    I have no problem with anyone if: they have good character, they care about the school, and they win :). Asking too much....hopefully not.

    Re: Why Not Steve Loney?

    I really hope Chizik wasn't hired because he was a wow guy. We need a Coach. Not a cheerleader, promoter or motivator, but a Coach. If JP is looking for anything other than a good Coach, I'd be ****** off.

    Iowa State: Sources tell FootballScoop that St. Louis Rams offensive line coach Steve Loney would like to interview at Iowa State.

    The most successful years offensively under Mac were with Loney. He also got Mason started at Minnesota. His NFL ties would be very attractive to recruits...especially linemen...He also beat a scholarship 1-AA with a non-scholarship Drake team...

    I wouldn't be against Loney because he would give 200%.

    That said, I would still take Patterson, Hill, Graham and Holtz ahead of him. Calhoun could actually be an incredible fit for us(does more with lesser recruits)...
