    Jamie's statement is still very much true. The fact is if guys didn't transfer away from ISU at an amazing rate there would not be scholarships to offer to other transfers, and Fred would not be out looking for players.

    who hired the coach who recruited all these transfers?

    Congrats to Chuckles and Miller. They managed to find another way to take a shot at Pollard. Just another day that ends in 'y'.

    Apparently M&M live a world where everything is black and white. However, situations like this are all about the grey. I think Jamie's comments were right on, for the most part, but that doesn't mean you turn away a talented transfer if he wants to go to your school. Let's be real.

    Probably would have been better if Jamie had said nothing at all so we wouldn't have to listen to these two dopes nitpick every word that comes out of his mouth, but that's water under the bridge. Personally, I like the fact that JP tells it like it is. Our fanbase needed an AD who isn't afraid to call a spade a spade.

    Welcome aboard, Mr. Babb.

    Re: Matt and Miller take swipe at Jamie

    They are right. I won't deny that. He said something and now we are going against it. The fact is, though, that he was right as well. It's part of the game these days. You have to effectively get transfers and limit your own. Like i have said, something needs to change. I think that players should have to forfeit their redshirt if they decide to transfer with the exception of coaching changes. that would be my solution.

    I still do believe that at least Matt has hard on for making JP look bad and does all he can to do so. Even if it includes misrepresenting what he writes.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.

    Where do you stop? The AD is selected by the University president, the university president is selected by the board of regents, the board of regents is selected by the Governor, the governor is selected by the voters of Iowa. The rate of transfers is placed on McDermott and his staff, not Pollard as he is not recruiting for the basketball team.

    Jamie said something stupid, and he is getting called on it. Don't get me wrong, Matt and Ken are in my **** list for their constant ISU hate, but Jamie owns this one.

    sure he said that. but jamie is right. But its todays environment and we are going to have to deal with it. It happens all over the place, and i wonder if mr.giggles perrault will be calling out the creighton ad if he had said something to this tune and they had the same problems.

    Re: Matt and Miller take swipe at Jamie

    Not sure why some feel a need to blindly defend all that is ISU.
    Sometimes when you say what you believe it will turn around
    and bites you in the backside. Does Fred have the luxury of not
    looking at transfer, of course not. The major difference with the Babb
    situation is the coach he WANTED to play for got fired, correct?

    Was Jamie wrong? Maybe Jamie feels that way about Christopherson and Babb too. Just because they need to learn how to operate in the real world doesn't mean that you don't take them in. In business, I'm guessing that a good portion of college graduates and interns don't come in knowing how to act in a corporate environment. That doesn't mean that they can't be hired, it just means that they need to learn. The same way with college athletes. At some point they will have to learn that they are accountable for decisions and commitments they make. If they don't then, like Jamie said, they won't last long in the real world.

    Re: Matt and Miller take swipe at Jamie

    Since when is what Pollard said taken as the bible truth? He said what he had to say at the time about the transfers. He had no choice and people read way too much into what he says. He had to back up the coach because you can't go out there publicly and say "yeah, Greg sucks."

    Re: Matt and Miller take swipe at Jamie

    Are you surprized Jamie is twice the man either one of them will ever be. They are shock jocks at a radio station in Iowa. Jamie is the AD of a BCS conferance school if you look at where each one is in their career path well I shouldn't need to explain any more.
