    How Are People mad at JP???

    Look what he has done for our multiple athletic programs... not just mbb and football... Do people realize our budget is 50% larger than it was before him?

    I saw the thread about coaches not fulfilling our contracts and questioning Jamie...

    Go find a school that doesn't have that problem and then well talk.

    He maybe arrogant and rub people the wrong way, and he does things his way. Give the guy credit for taking charge, thats what we all wanted after VDV wasn't it?

    Jamie hurt some video game players feelings with his comments a few weeks back. They're not going to let him hit reset....

    I've never understood the anger directed toward JP either. I've said this before and I'll say it again: Both Chizik and McDermott were HOT candidates and he GOT them. Nobody in the world would have guessed that one or both of them wouldn't work out.

    My guess is they still have boners for Danny Mac and Wayne. Only thing that makes sense.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.

    Also keep in mind the font size of this post is higher than their IQs collectively.

    Re: How Are People mad at JP???

    I honestly wonder if JP "knew" that there were schools interested in taking McDermott of our hands, and that's why he threw his "I support McDermott 100%" line out there. Would you really want to drive away potential buyers by NOT supporting the subject any less than 100%?

    Re: How Are People mad at JP???

    Does mcdermott have the ability to come off looking great from this? Gets to get rid of a coach the fanbase had pretty much given up on, but also gets to portray for coaches that he'll stand behind his guys. Double win.

    Re: How Are People mad at JP???

    Many reasons:

    1: Lost Kindler and Sanderson (both alumni) as coaches at ISU.
    2: The childish email made public to a fan that appears to be authentic.
    3: The horrible press conference with McD.
    4: JP's ignorance of what was really going on with player relations in men's bball.
    5: JP's letter unnecessarily using BF to give McD cover. Also blaming ISU's problems on youth.
    6: Taking over control of the ISU center and then supposedly giving it up only a year later without any explanation.
    7: Raising revenues simply by holding football season ticket holders ransom. Necessary, but nothing to brag about.
    8: His ego. Enough said. A little goes a long way.

    That enough for people?

    This makes me think of the Hardley Boys from South Park, Eww I've got a clue!

    Re: How Are People mad at JP???

    Big deal. We are better in sports people don't care about except for the athletes the play them and the athletes families. Who cares if we are good in Women's Jumproping? People want good mens basketball and football teams, we have sucked the whole time JP has been here in Basketball and we have one mediocre year in football.

    Agree on Kindler but Sanderson wanted to leave his own mark on something. The guy is a competitor and while some people may like the situation he was in at ISU he did not. He wanted to build his own legacy and not take one that was handed to him.

    2: The childish email made public to a fan that appears to be authentic.
    Probably not one of his best moments.

    3: The horrible press conference with McD.
    4: JP's ignorance of what was really going on with player relations in men's bball.
    What he knows and what he chooses to make public are likely two different things. Just because you did not hear it does not mean he does not know about it.

    5: JP's letter unnecessarily using BF to give McD cover. Also blaming ISU's problems on youth.
    It's called perspective. Transfers happen to good coaches (BF). Sure there was spin in the letter but it had a valid point.

    6: Taking over control of the ISU center and then supposedly giving it up only a year later without any explanation.
    This one is curious to me as well. Sounds like the AD bit off more than they could chew.

    7: Raising revenues simply by holding football season ticket holders ransom. Necessary, but nothing to brag about.
    Have to spend money to make money. Simple as that. If we were content with Van DeVelde level competition then we would have never fired him.

    8: His ego. Enough said. A little goes a long way.

    That enough for people?
    This I never understood. Pollard does have a bit of an ego, but what AD doesn't? Have you ever heard Barta or Bowslby talk? All of them have an edge to them or else they would not be in the position they are in.
