    Did Pollard deserve the extension?

    Would you have given Jamie Pollard an extension through 2014 if you were in charge?

    I didn't make this a public poll, but I for one would not have.

    Dumb poll...it'll be 85-15 in favor just like the other Pollard poll. Overwhelming yes.

    What would you have the new AD do if Pollards contract was allowed to expire?

    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    Re: Did Pollard deserve the extension?

    I believe some people are thinking "Man, I like Pollard, but why not wait a year or so on an extension? See if the programs turn around."

    Also, if "the other poll" was the Do you like Jaime poll - that one was misguided.

    Re: Did Pollard deserve the extension?

    I voted no - if Geoffrey really likes him (called him the best AD in the country) - he should have just given him a raise.
    There's big money in being an AD now; Foley at Florida makes $965,000/yr., and Perkins at KU makes $900,000. If Jamie gets a chance to bolt for a bigger program, a contract extension at ISU sure ain't going to keep him...

    I do not get paid for that. If we see results I'm all for an extension, we had another year + to watch it play out.

    Giving a raise to the AD when the rest of the university is undergoing significant cutbacks would likely have been very controversial and would likely have generated animosity against the athletic department from other university departments. Not a good thing to do right now. If Pollard bolts for higher pay, so be it.

    Voted Yes...

    Re: Did Pollard deserve the extension?

    If his contract were up in the next year or two, I think so. Not sure how you could can a guy who's really put the future of the department on the line with all the renovations and spending. And like coaches, I think you have to work with a bit of time on your contract. May as well let it play out.

    But given he still had 3 in this one, I think it's a bit premature.

    I still support JP, and I think he has done some tremendous things. But the end game is with all the facility improvements, eventually these coaches HAVE TO WIN at some point. Particularly GMac.

    Easy way out...giving a guy an extension is the easy part not giving him a raise is the hard part. I think people are missing this.
