    The longer this drags out...

    the better or worse for ISU?

    I could argue both ways...

    Better: We are waiting for some prime coaches to finish their bowl games. JP is interviewing a ton of people with interest in the job and has to narrow down many guys to pick the right one.

    Worse: We are getting turned down a lot. The players and recruits are left in limbo longer. We may have to settle.

    This isn't about certain coaching candidates but about the timing of the hire.

    Thoughts?

    I don't know about ISU, but the longer this drags out, the more productivity my company loses...

    This.

    We want a guy with enough respect for his current program not to sneak out the backdoor in the middle of the night.

    Why hasn't anyone gotten a CyBookie going on this? There have to be some number crunchers out there that could make up some lines.

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    I've decided that it will be a good coach with a bowl team, so we won't be signing anytime soon. I refuse to spend more than 30 minutes on here today. I've wasted so much time listening to BS rumors... Nobody knows and it's apparent. So why should we worry about it until it's done. All it does is get our blood pressure up. For what? To know a day early... MAYBE?

    Screw it, I'm going to work on my last day before the Christmas vacation.

    Can't be helpful with recruits on the ledge. Lichtenberg has already set up a visit to Iowa and the snowball effect could start fairly quickly. I think the sooner you get a coach the better.

    I don't know if I can handle another week of this let alone another month to finish the bowl games.

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    Isn't there a no-contact rule for a time period starting Monday?? I'm not sure what that entails but my only concern for a quick hire is keeping players and recruiting.

    Or could he be from the NFL?? What are those rules? I would assume that they can be talked to whenever. If it is a College Coach in a bowl game then we will not know until January 9th when he is done coaching.

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    Sooner has to be better from a player retention standpoint, but I don't think later necessarily means that we are getting turned down a lot. It may mean that we are waiting for a bowl game to get over first.

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    I really think that our next coach will be coaching their current team in the Poinsettia Bowl next Tuesday night. I just don't know which one it is yet.

    If this is the case we won't hear anything "official" until the middle of next week at the earliest. I'm happy to wait!

    (Note: I have to be right on this, it's my 100th post!!!)

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    I am not going to worry about something I personally cannot change or predict how things will turn out. I do however enjoy the fun watching everyone try to guess who the new guy will be.

    In the end we will likely lose a few players/verbal commits but we will also gain a few with the new coach. In the end hopefully it is a wash.

    I see my whole role in this thing as continuing to be positive regardless of who the coach ends up being, renew my season tickets and NCC donation. All other things will take care of themselves.

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    IMO it makes me think that JP is taking his time and making sure that he has the right person and staff. I think we should be glad it is "dragging on."

    Re: The longer this drags out...

    I don't think securing recruit X by inking first available coach is advisable if we have a legit shot at a great one who I coaching a bowl game.

    If a kid is going to leave before seeing who the new coach is I'm not going to stop them.
