    Pollard's Comments on Potential Expansion

    My family is from Davenport and attended the Tailgate Tour stop there tonight. I'm going to the stop tomorrow in Cedar Rapids and can speak for myself then, but this is what my family told me Pollard said about a potential change in the college football landscape...(paraphrased).

    "Take a deep breath and remember the history of college football. There have been expansions before and still college football survived. No one knows, especially the media, what is being discussed except those around the table."

    I hope to talk to JP a little tomorrow on the subject...

    I'm not particularly concerned about "college football". I'm conerned about ISU football.

    ..... Not that I'm especially concerned.

    Perhaps you missed the part where he said the comments were from Jamie "Area 51" Pollard.

    Yeah, my feelings after hearing this was, "Yeah, no doubt college football will be fine."

    The way it is worded kind of indicates to me that he has been in some sort of discussion. He kind of takes a shot at the media and really never says he doesn't know anything. I would bet he knows more than anyone gives him credit for.


    It's all snark from here on out

    Pollard needs to speak to what isu is doing to protect its future instead of making vague statements like that.

    Re: Pollard's Comments on Potential Expansion

    I agree that "College Football" will live for decades or more. The question is whether ISU will be playing big-time college football in a decade or two.

    I have never been to one of these dog and pony shows. Does anyone ever have the stones to ask tough questions, or is it all glad handing and blind rah rah?

    I take this to mean the Big12/Pac10 tv network will be launching shortly.

    A lack of knowlege and a lack of security (knowing where you will be) could lead to a negative in recruiting.

    What is he supposed to say?
    Really, what can he publicly say that would be a benefit?
