    I would like Todd Graham or Pat Hill. Both are energetic and have great minds for the game.

    If he ran a program like Tennesse into the ground, what makes us think he will succeed in Ames?

    IF Phillip Fulmer is really interested. We have our next coach. Listen the guy has won 75% of his games at Tennessee, can recruit and WON A NATIONAL TITLE in 1998.

    Only 2 losing seasons. And this will be his last coaching job cause he is 58 years old.

    If Tennessee was ran "into the ground", then we are at least 6 feet under that ground.

    Re: 12/18 Official Coaching Search Thread

    Yesterday there was a long thread on what would be a modern-day "Johnny Orr" hire for football...

    hiring Fulmer would be as close as it'd come, in my opinion.

    Well, with as much talent as they have/get every year, and he still loses 3-5 games a year.... kind of scares me.... Running the program into the ground may have been a little harsh.

    Give me Fulmer, Hill, Calhoun, or some other covert name of their ilk.

    Agree somewhat. But what made the hiring of Johnny even more surprising is that he already had a job...and a very good job at Michigan. The hiring of Fulmer would have only occurred because he was fired at Tennessee. Not saying it woudln't be a good hire...but less surprising than ISU landing Johnny Orr.

    would be interesting to say the least. Could be a nice shot at redemption for him.

    Not the case at all. He just wasn't able to generate the same level of success these last few years.

    It concerns me he couldn't keep up with the Joneses in SEC (Florida, Georgia, Alabama) and lost his job because of it.

    I see your point, but at this point we are not trying to be competitive with Florida, Georgia, and Alabama. We just need to be competitive with Iowa, Colorado, Kansas, Kansas State, Missouri, and Nebraska. Then we can worry about being competitive with better teams.
