    Pollards best moves...rate them

    I don't know how to set up a poll, but am interested in thoughts on Pollards best moves to date:
    1. Hiring McDermott
    2. Hiring Chizik
    3. Season Ticket announcement
    4. New Stadium plan
    5. All of the above
    I would vote for number five

    Can't forget putting up a Cyclone Billboard in the Heart of Hawkeye Country! Anything to irritate a Hawkeye Fan is fine by me.

    JP has definitely fired up the Cyclone Fan Base...

    Re: Pollards best moves...rate them

    Is someone documenting Pollard's big moves on a timeline or something? Seriously, we need record of this. Ok maybe i'm a little excited, but really I love this guy.... I'm thinking of sending him a valentine...

    1. Chizik Hire/McDermott Hire/Cael Hire
    2. everything else, the stadium improvements as long as he doesn't expect them too quickly is a good idea, but we need the basketball facility improvements before the others
    3. The season ticket thing is just weird, I think it is too soon to respect too many season ticket holders, it will take time to rebuild a football philopsophy, espcially the fans, as long as Pollard is patient along with his assertiveness he will succeed, if he tries to rush things he won't!

    I think the most impressive thing that JP has done is selling 30000 plus season tix for the mediocre product that we saw this Fall. To polish that thing up, and make it appear to be a hopeful situation shows how much the guy knows his p.r.

    Also the way that the FB coaching search was handled, not to mention the hire itself, was most impressive.

    AGREED!!! What I like most about JP is: He is NOT AFRAID TO PULL THE TRIGGER!! Getting rid of Morgan last Spring was the right thing to do even after paying LE to leave...And sadly, Jamie wanted Coach Mac to stay, but it was the right call. I really think in 2-4 years Coach Chizik and Coach McDermott are the BEST hires and their records will show it. Out here, they are still reeling about paying Gary Barnett over 3 mill. in the CU mess. I hope Jamie stays here for a LONG, LONG Time...I said it before, Don't kid yourselves, Iowa Hawkeyes are watching every move and clenching their teeth...HITMAN

    Re: Pollards best moves...rate them

    1. Coming to Iowa State from Wisc.
    2. McD hiring - It stopped the bleeding and put positive focus on ISU. It's also a money sport. McD has done an excellent job, given the time he had and the talent he had.
    3. Cael's hiring - Insured we didn't lose another legend to the East. Has proven to be an excellent coach in a short time frame.
    4. Facility plan and the sales job he's done, so far.
    5. Hiring Chizik - Too early to tell, but looking good.

    I would vote instead for one thing...President Geoffrey hiring Jamie Pollard. The rest has been beyond my expectations.
