    Ranked women's gymnastics loses to Iowa?

    Very surprising we lost this meet.

    Disappointing to say the least.

    A very bad loss, but if you look at their record, they have not won a meet this season. I realize the overall score matters most, but it still is disappointing.

    Especially considering it's only their 3 rd win in the last 31 meetings. ISU can't beat Iowa in gymnastics is a sad sign.

    Re: Ranked women's gymnastics loses to Iowa?

    Pollard letting KJ Kindler go was a big gaffe. She was headstrong, but many great coaches are. It became an ego thing with Jamie. I realize there is almost no revenue in gymanstics, but it's still a good PR/image sport for the school if successful.
    The program now is a shadow of what it was.

    KJ Kindler should have been on the list of best looking female athletes at ISU, hopefully someone put her on that.

    For letting her go, another Pollard error, I think this was his first coaching mistake with bigger ones to come. They were in the running for a NC in 06' if I remember, good idea to let her go Jamie.

    I thought she was lured away? Jamie didn't fire her.

    I meant that to say that he let her get away to Oklahoma. All she wanted immediately was air conditioning installed to the Beyer Hall gymnastics facility, with other improvements in the next 5-10 years.
    She was beating programs with facilities, and budgets, light years ahead of ISU.

    Iowa has a gymnastics team?

    $5 million to fire coaches who took us to bowl games and NCAA tournaments and replace them with coaches who have set new records for losing? No problem.

    $5k to install air conditioning and keep the best gymnastics coach in the conference? No can do.

    Another smart move by Pollard.


    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.

    The less we spend on gymnastics the better.

    Cool Re: Ranked women's gymnastics loses to Iowa?

    I was at the meet. Too many ISU girls fell off the beam and it hurt their scores a lot. The ISU team looked better on the other events I thought.

    Side note - Jessa Hansen is a HOTTIE! She's a freshman for Iowa, trained at Chows with Shawn Johnson since they were little. She is also the daughter of Marc Hansen from the Register. Jessa is very talented and as a freshman is already competing in 3 of 4 events and scored really well! What made Jessa stand out was she looked more like a girl, rather than a burly manly thing with big muscles. She was more like a Nastia Liukin type..........very easy on the eyes.

    Really? You managed to put a Pollard complaint in a gymnastics thread? Really?

    Congrats to Iowa for a nice win.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!
