    So everyone should hire a head coach that has no previous experience? This hire is a huge risk. If it fails, you can say bye to Pollard.

    Oh, no the three winning seasons...2nd round of the NCAA Tournament and NIT semifinals is all in your mind. Remember?

    Pollard is definitely putting his job on the line with this one. If it fails, he looks horrible for making a knee-jerk no-experience hire and has to fire The Mayor. You don't want to be the AD to fire the all-time best Cyclone - because you'll be soon behind.

    If it works, Pollard is a genius and will own keys to the city.

    Far, far, far more risk here. I don't get it.

    LOL

    Yeah, they both had HC experience!

    The trend is young coaches that relate to players. FH's NBA experience/contacts will attract new talent.

    I like this hire

    Re: Just so you know, Greg McDermott and Wayne Morgan both had experience

    This is J.P.'s career at Iowa State... Fred wins he wins

    but what do you tell the fan base when their favorite son (who has NEVER coached a college game) fails?

    I hope he doesn't have to answer that, but he sure as hell better considered it!

    more risk than what? I dont get it. If JPs new bball coach is awful, you don't think he would have been shown the door regardless of who the guy is?

    If Fred doesn't work out as coach, he ...

    If Fred doesn't work out as Coach, (and I really think he will) instead of getting fired, he will get promoted to AD, because that job will be open right before the MBB basketball coaching position is open.

    Go Freddy, The Mayor comes home to take control of the BIG 12 and the NCAA.

    I think that you are right about the position won't be open any more. This is the one person that Jamie can't fire...even if he wanted to.

    Re: If Fred doesn't work out as coach, he ...

    Amen, OP. This reminds me of a famous poem:

    Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
    And sorry I could not travel both
    And be one traveller, long I stood
    And looked down one as far as I could
    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim,
    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
    Though as for that the passing there
    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay
    In leaves no step had trodden black.
    Oh, I kept the first for another day!
    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference

    ...Jamie Pollard
