    Re: Bruce Van Develde

    I thought he was stocking shelves at Pamida in Ohio or something.
    Must have gotten canned..

    I feel bad for whatever institution he currently calls his job.

    Re: Bruce Van Develde

    In all honesty, I did see him in the West Ames Hy-Vee sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas. He was in front of me at the Chineese Express. He is also still listed as owning a house in North Ames, a few blocks up from McDermotts house.

    I don't normally single people out, but nearly everything you type puts me on edge. You are the foremost defender of McCarney, crying foul and going so far as to call his detractors "idiots"; yet here you are taking pot shots at VandeVelde, about whom you probably don't know much.

    I don't know Bruce VandeVelde, but I do know that the job he had did not allow him the sweeping power presently enjoyed by Jamie Pollard. VandeVelde was a year-to-year contract guy and many knowledgeable people recognize that he was the administration's short-term hatchet man. We'll never know if he had a vision for the athletic department, but we do know that he didn't have the power to accomplish anything. Even so, somehow you opine he's fit for nothing better than working at McDonalds.

    In summary, if you're going to put yourself out there as the "defender of the unfairly treated", it's likely that BVD got shafted by ISU and ISU fans much moreso than Danny Mac. He certainly doesn't deserve your derision....

    Re: Bruce Van Develde

    Yeah I was looking for a half way serious answer on this one. Nobody has given me a straight one yet.

    Bruce wasn't my favorite guy either, and it appears from most of your posts he is the fall guy for most of ISU's past athletic problems. Look in the mirrors my friends. When you're at the bottom of the Big 12 in athletic budget, your options are rather limited. And that's simply a function of fan attendance x ticket price.

    Anyway does anybody know if he got a legitimate job yet and if so where?

    True, true but when the guy that is supposed to have the vision is an empty suit or at best a number cruncher/budget balancer it's difficult for people to rally and up their support. Pollard hasn't had jack crap for results to sell yet we're bringing more money than we ever have because there is a vision for the department.

    Re: Bruce Van Develde

    I assume he is in Ames as his wife Debbie now works as an Administrative Specialist in the Electrical and Computer Engineering department.
