    Polard not looking good

    Saw Polard during the half time show and he was almost in tears. He was refering to a member of his family who has cancer. Anyone know what the scoop is?

    Yeah, it was in the game thread.

    His son is battling cancer and is in Blank Children's Hospital getting chemo.

    Re: Polard not looking good

    yeah not sure I'd be doing good if my young son was dealing with cancer. I knew some nieghbors who went through that when their child was young... I'm fortuante enough that i was too young to truely appreciate what it ment for a 5 year old to die of cancer back then

    EDIT I Was maybe 9 when the kid was burried in Arlington on Halloween eve

    As a father of an 8 month old daughter, it almost brings me to tears just thinking about that.

    The prognosis is said to be very good and encouraging, FWIW.

    If you have a problem - if no one else can help - and if you can find
    them - maybe you can hire: The A-Team.

    Re: Polard not looking good

    Lets hope his son can pull through and beat this! Cancer is horrible and I can't imagine having one of my own go through this. I'm definitely keeping the Pollard family in my thoughts and prayers.

    Re: James Pollard

    I've never been a Jamie fan based on what he's done during his time at Iowa State.

    Be that as it may, I teared up watching the 1/2 time conversation they had with him when I got home.

    I wish Jamie and his youngster the best and hope that the reports of the positive news hold true.

    I can't imagine what he's going through and that's not even considering the unbelievable pressures of his job.

    Jamie's son should be in all of our prayers and I think it goes without saying that the courage his son has shown is far greater than any of our players that we laud have shown on the gridiron.

    I wish he and his family the best and hope for the most positive outcome possible.

    Re: James Pollard

    The sunday before school started he visited marching band practice and brought his sons. He talked some about James and how he loves to imitate the band just as much as Austen Arnaud. James never stopped smiling the whole time they were there.

    Re: James Pollard

    Pollard was on the pregame, and when asked about his son he broke down. It made me very sad.
