    Iowa just hired their new AD. They went with that Barta guy from Wyoming.
    The register has an article about it online. It paints a glowing picture of UI athletics.
    I guess we will see how good of shape comptetively their basketball team is actually in this year.

    It's great that he is going to be meassured against the Jamie Pollard, which any sane Hawk fan admits Pollard was a great hire.

    I think Barta versus Pollard is apples to oranges. The fact that they have been hired within a year or whatever of one another is the only similarity. Pollard was brought in and has done his best--which has been very good so far--to energize the Cyclone base. I doubt that will be Barta&#39;s job. The Hawks have big time donors and have already vastly improved Kinnick. Us? Well, we&#39;re just starting and Pollard is going to have to be very creative and not shy when it comes to getting donations. Maybe a very tangential similarity is that our BB program was slipping and the Hawks may or may not be. We&#39;ll see what Alford does next year. Supposedly they have done some impressive things, although I&#39;ll believe it when I see it.



    A lot of other things these guys deal with are not publicly and widely known (i.e., not related to the revenue sports), so how each does with those tasks will probably never be fully grasped, unless one sport has either a collossal success (such as a national championship) or meltdown (such as a Duke lacrosse-type situation).
