    I support Pollard 110%

    Jamie Pollard has done a terrific job for Iowa State. Cael leaving means we hired a top coach in the first place. Same with Chizik. JP is a man of integrity, and I believe both football and basketball are moving up. Let's recognize this man for what he is, a true professional.

    Good you can make up for the 15% in which I support him!!

    You don't get it. Iowa State wrestling is different than Iowa State football. ISU wrestling is a top 3 job. Cael left for a worse job. What does that say ??

    Cael's an idiot? Or backed down from the challenge?

    There are options here. Maybe it just wasn't the best fit for him somehow. Maybe recruiting is harder for him than we thought.

    I don't know. JP is who we've got, and he's done some great stuff here. I'm a Cyclone, so I'll stick with the Cyclones who are here instead of worrying about the ones who left.

    More money and not the loyalty we thought he had?

    No way is recruiting hard for him at Iowa State. Look at our class!!!!

    Pollard makes good hires who are coveted by other colleges. Would we rather have a coach no one wants?

    Did anyone see Bobby Douglas on the news, "He said the price to play poker just went up"...or something to that affect.

    You must have an inside track on this information. Tell us more about what really happened.

    That is cool...I respect your right to state your position. I do not support JP. For those who are mad that Cael jumped ship for more money don't know any more than most of us! Most of us have zero inside information and rely on instincts or gut feelings to make these judgments. My judgment says that JP has not done a good job!

    Re: I support Pollard 110%

    It stinks for us in the short-term, but Pollards recent issues haven't been because he is firing people, it's other school's coming to raid them from us. It's at least nice to think we are hiring coaches in demand by other schools, now if we could just see some wins attached! Besides, how many coaches that are alumni end up getting fired vs. sticking around? Can you imagine having to be the guy to fire Cael in 5 years if we continue to fail to reach the next level and start to slip in the rankings? JP got villified for letting Mac go, I can only imagine what would happen if Cael had to be let go for failing to win.
