    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    Great, great news! I loved the words in the first paragraph:

    Iowa State has finalized what is essentially a lifetime contract with women's basketball coach Bill Fennelly.
    Lifetime Contract....I love it.

    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    Guess that puts to rest the people saying JP was only giving him one more chance to climb the hill....and the "whispers".

    Like I said Bill is 100% what JP is looking for. Well done JP couldn't agree more.

    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    Couldn't say better things about Bill. The way he handled the Georgia game and actually turned it into a somewhat positive experience for his players was something that goes way beyond the court.

    Two thumbs up, one for Bill becoming a Cyclone lifer, and the other for Jamie freakin' Pollard for having the testicular fortitude to not *****-foot around important issues and just get $hit done

    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    Just to put into perspective what Bill Fennelly did for Iowa State women's basketball:

    Chizik would have to raise attendance levels to 1,320,000 people per game to put the football team where coach Fennelly has the WBB program now.

    I know it's an extreme exaggeration, but BF averaged just over 300 fans per game his first year...and this year he averaged around 8,800. That's almost a 29 times increase.

    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    Great news. Congrats to Bill and a thank you to JP for doing what I believe was the right thing to do.

    12 more years for Bill and my daughter will graduate high school in 11 years so Bill can still offer my daughter a scholarship. Sounds good to me.

    Could Cael Sanderson be next in line for a new contract?

    Re: Fennelly Extended..

    This is great to hear. Coach Fennelly seems like such an honest, good-hearted, and highly-motivated guy: in other words, a true Iowan. I'm proud to have him represent us. He deserves this. Good work, JP!


    True and Valiant

    I also remember a game with Kansas when Cy (wore a huge suit then) went out to center field, squatted, and "pooped" a couple of chickens that had been dyed blue then chased them around.
