    One reason to make a move ths year rather than waiting.

    Hasn't been discussed much, but making a move this year leaves ISU with a fairly wide open list of candidates. Waiting another year will likely result in ISU having competition with Iowa, Nebraska just to name two. Make a move this year and ISU will likely be the only Big 12 or Big 10 team in the market for a coach.

    Agree with your point, but I'm pretty sure Penn State will can Ed DeChellis, and some of the same names - McCaffrey, Rose, Davis, Gregory - are being talked about there as are here.

    I'm not impressed by any of the potential candidates. Which is why I'm willing to give Mac another year but thats it. Its win or you're gone for me next year.

    Don't really have one. In my dream scenario, Lon Kruger would want to return to his Big 12 roots. Thought we might have taken a run at him the last time around.

    The first move that needs to be made is replacing Pollard. I don't trust him to make yet another coaching hire.

    Exactly. Deal with that fact of having more money to enjoy football, wrestling and womens basketball. I'm good with that.
