    what do you expect from us...

    its not always a "giving up on the team thing". in fact it most typically is never that. fans of isu will always be. but what do you expect from a fan base when we havnt even been to the freaking nit tourney in years, and our football team hasnt won more then 7 games since when? the last time we went to the insight bowl ages ago?... when isu fans start to sense just hope, not even wins, just hope, they will cheer loudly, always do... but it typically is pulled away from us instantly... we have heard the same thing every single year since ive been a fan... next year... im waiting for this year still.

    What is expected is more and more donations and record high ticket prices, according to our AD. It's called "Taking The Next Big Step". Didn't you get the memo?

    Gene Smith, 1993-2000. 7 years, 6 NCAA's, 1 bowl game. Revenue sports postseason participation 50%. Good.
    Bruce Vandevelde, 2000-20005. 5 years, 4 bowl games, 2 NCAA's, 2 NIT's. Postseason participation 80%. Better.
    Jamie Pollard, 2005-. 4 years. 1 bowl game, 0 NCAA's, 0 NIT's. Postseason participation: 13%. The next big step.

    My ignore list: splitidentity, tarheelhawk,superdorf, clones_jer. That is all.

    According to Jamie:

    Give more money.
    30 years of buying football tickets is not enough, give more or else
    30 years of donating is not enough, give more or else.
    26 years of buying basketball tickets is not enough, give more or else.

    Be carefull what you wish for :)
