    One thing is for sure...

    With all of the debating, discussing, and talking amongst our fellow Cyclone fans about ISU/Iowa ticketgate, isn't it nice to have an AD that is on the OFFENSIVE instead of reacting to every situation that comes up?

    Pollard has kept EVERYONE...fans, media, other universities...on their toes.

    The thing that makes me smile the most? The media can't figure him out and they HATE it.

    I, for one, love it.

    Re: One thing is for sure...

    I disagree about the media "hating" it. Most media I've listened to think it is very aggressive and risky, no doubt. But they have mostly felt it is something ISU has to do to keep up in the Big XII "arms race." Now, they are entirely skeptical and many don't believe it will work. But, I don't equate that to "hating" that they can't figure Pollard out.

    Heck, it gives the media something to talk about in a time where there isn't much else to talk about in regards to sports in this area. Yeah, March Madness is coming up, but not many teams here have a realistic shot at the Big Dance.

    Now we just have to get the fanbase as a whole over the "little brother syndrome." It is ingrained in many people who call themselves Cyclone fans, it is up to people like yourself to extend a hand and tell them it is OK to think that we should win. And actually deserve to be successful.

    If you build hype and excitement around a program and make it seem like the place to be, fans and recruits will naturally gravitate there. Hes got a great plan and i think it will pay off huge.
