    Pollard question

    I mostly just read CycloneFanatic, but I have a question reading some of the replies about JP.

    So I am setting up a poll to get an idea. Wondering the support of JP based on age.

    p.s. I love me some Pollard.

    Re: Pollard question

    Might get more responses if you make it a private poll.

    EDIT -- Or...you might get a ton of responses just the way it is. Bad call on my part, I guess.

    Re: Pollard question

    It's a little too black/white for me. I like some of the decisions he's made and I don't like some of the others he's made. I'm still in wait-and-see mode.

    Well this thread has been oddly telling yet also disappointing so far

    Re: Pollard question

    I've been sliding to disliking him. Love what he has done for fund raising and facilities.
    But wins in the major sports has gotten even worse than it was before - which just isn't good.

    I think he can get things going, I'm just getting tired of waiting.

    If you're older than 30 you know that ISU has been through worse and better times.

    Younger than 30 you remember some of ISU best times when we thought we may actually be worth something in the NCAA.

    Re: Pollard question

    I support him but my level of confidence in him has gone down in recent months.

    Re: Pollard question

    I voted "don't like, under 30" but it's not like I wish the guy ill-will. I do support him, I just don't have much faith at this point.

    Re: Pollard question

    From a marketing and fundraising standpoint, JP has been the best AD ISU has ever had. Unfortunately, when you look at the biggest decisions JP has made, they haven't turned out very well.

    -Mac to Chizik to Rhoads: We all have a soft spot for Mac and we will never forget what he did for this program, but a change did need to be made. I still think Chizik was a phenomenal hire, but none of us could have predicted his ineptitude on the sidelines and his quick departure after only two years. I really like everything I've seen out of PR so far. Great coordinator hires, positive attitude and decent recruiting. We'll find out more this fall.

    -Replacing Morgan with McDermott: For every star that Morgan brought to this program, he also brought 3 knuckleheads. He probably was let go too soon, but JP saw the chance to get McD, who was one of the hottest coaches in the nation and he took. McD's tenure has been marked by bizarre defections and patchwork recruiting as a result. I do think he is finally figuring out what it takes to succeed at this level, but once again, this coming season will tell us what we need to know.

    -Cael: I really don't know how much of this ties into JP. Cael said this was strickly about money and "a better opportunity", but that's a very hard thing for me to buy. I do like Jackson though.

    I still think JP has made the right hires, but they've not panned out well. I like who we have now, but I think I speak for most ISU fans when I say, we all expect results in FB, MBB and wrestling in '09-'10.

    Ok, here is a good question. What has JP done for ISU? Nothing good, that is for sure
