    Pollard Appreciation - Found Van de Velde

    ran across this and found it interesting...Former ISU AD Bruce Van de Velde, deputy athletic director for Lousiana Tech, was recently named acting AD and promptly employed a search firm to do his search for a new head coach...

    I appreciate that JP does the coaching searches on his own and also marvel at how far our entire athletic department has come since BV

    I think JP uses search firms at times also. Not sure on that though.

    Now that MBB is back, do we still have to pretend that WBB matters?

    Re: Pollard Appreciation - Found Van de Velde

    You can argue that two ways. Sometimes search firms are a good idea, and sometimes they aren't.

    Uh, no. Pollard used the search firm Baker Parker, out of Atlanta, prior to hiring Rhoads.

    I agree. BVD's various personality quirks prevented him from doing the job properly. You have to look forward to engaging with the fan base, as well as with the coaches and student athletes, to do the AD job.

    i dont for 2 reasons...

    1) Chris wants as many people on here as possible. Chris' wish is my command.

    2) I would love to serve Monty crow when we (JP) are successful by HIS standards.
