    I'm glad

    I'm not in JP or GG's shoes at this point. I'm guessing their stress levels are pushing max cortisol right now.

    At least I was able to kick back, fire up the grill and watch a movie with the kids tonight. I'm guessing their work-life balance isn't very good right now.

    JP said he wasn't losing sleep over this yesterday at his speaking engagement, but that's hard to believe.

    This stuff has been driving me crazy, I can only imagine what they're going through...

    Sure, it's their job...but I'd say this falls outside the scope of what would normally occur in their respective roles. You're right though...we'll see what they're made of.

    In the end it is the fans, alumni, and state of Iowa that will have to deal with the change.

    It's a trying time I'm sure for them as it is for all of us.

    I'm pretty confident that we have two very capable leaders at our helm. They're going to guide us to the best situation possible in all of this mess. In the end it may not be the situation we want, but it's going to be as good a result as anyone could achieve given what we've got to work with.

    Re: I'm glad

    Didn't JP play golf today? Like the saying goes, stress is not finding a job and a family to take care of. GG and JP are getting paid big bucks, so I guess I don't think of them being under great stress here. It's out of their hands anyway until Texas makes their move, I just hope GG and JP have some friendshipes and/or good working relationships with others involved that can make something good happen for ISU.
