    What's Pollard doing?

    I'm a big JP backer and fan and have no doubt he is doing some great work behind the scenes for us.

    With saying that, what is he doing right now to help us ensure quality athletics in our future? Is he trying to sell us to the Big Televen? Trying to keep the south schools in the Big 12? Getting our foot in the door with the MWC?

    Like I said, I'm not doubting him or saying he should be doing something, because he is, my question is what do you guys think his game plan is for all of this?

    Re: What's Pollard doing?

    All of the above? As with most things related to JP, we don't know until it happens.


    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State all the way.
    Let's go! To show them what the gang's all here for,
    Go! To show them how the Cyclones cheer.
    For "I", for "S", forever!
    For Iowa State do it right!
    It's time to climb up on the vict'ry wagon,
    Fight! Iowa State, Fight! Fight!

    either one of two things:

    1) In a corner crying himself to sleep

    2) Trying to find a job at a BCS conference school that can afford him

    The real question: Is anyone answering their phone when they see Jamie Pollard on Caller ID?

    GG Is doing much much more. Athletics is a small piece of the puzzle in this whole thing. Conference affiliation effects ISU as a whole, not just athletics.

    When have we ever known what JP is doing ahead of time?

    So far he has not demonstrated himself to be a quitter, I wouldn't be so sure that he is going to go down without a fight. Besides, if he runs right now, his stock as a major school AD will not be very strong.

    I'd prefer it if they did a story on how Hawkeye fans feel about Jamie Pollard being silent.

    I believe KXNO has invited him on several of their programs, but he has stated he is not talking right now.

    You're BLIND! Football is the only part of this that matters... academics and research have ZERO to do with it....
