    I don't think Pollard went overboard at all. He basically said that we want to find out the truth, but that ISU had not received any information or details from Iowa on what happened, and that none of the police or security had reported anything either.... so he was just waiting to hear something.

    All of that and he said the band directors talked to each other.

    This whole situation is why you turn these things over to the authorities and not hold a press conference about it before knowing anything

    Barta never gets held accountable by anyone so what's the incentive to do so.

    QCHawkeye.... how do you think band members from ISU and UNI are treated at Kinnick?

    I've heard some pretty damaging stories from both of those bands about how Iowa fans treated them at Kinnick. I wonder if those will get some air time on GMA? Some are pretty bad, like almost just as bad as being groped.

    There's been some stuff on CF from ISU posters that are former ISU band members that wrote about things like people getting groped.

    False. Why would I be cool with fans being jackwads? It's pretty pathetic that anybody would take something so seriously when they personally had no effect on the outcome.

    I don't know that I put too much into the whole "the band directors talked after the game" thing... depending on WHEN they actually spoke?

    If they spoke right when the game ended for example.... they might have actually been speaking to one another as the Iowa band was marching to their bus, and the Iowa Director wouldn't have known anything yet at that point.

    And if JP told them not to report it, he'd be as big of a piece of **** as Barta. As is, he's not.

    So if some Iowa band members do go on GMA.... I'd have to think one of their biggest beef's would be against Barta and Harrell, right? That's what they've been saying recently.

    So not only would this look bad on a few horrible ISU fans.... but it could likely mean the end of Barta and Harrell.... which I'm sure most Iowa fans would be fine with.

    I don’t know what has or hasn’t been given, but if Pollard is not being given anything, I’ve got to think he’s got to be going to Barta and telling him turn over all information so he can investigate or he’s suing.

    There are cameras all over the stadium and outside of it. I would be very surprised if the entire band couldn’t be accounted for from the time they got off the bus and entered the stadium to the time they loaded the bus and left. I also guarantee the athletic dept/university have already reviewed the videos and are waiting for official police reports to be filed to release the videos. In other words, JP has already covered ISU’s a$$ and is just waiting for Barta to push it past the point of no return. Why do you think Barta’s been trying to TOE the line (pun intended). I have personally tailgate directly across from the visiting busses on the grass of 4th street in B6 for 15ish years and know that there are always local police, state patrol, and security around before, during, and after the games. I doubt these serious accusations could have occurred between the gate and the busses which is less than 100 yards without police, other band member, or other fan intervention.

    Right. And we all recall your numerous posts expressing your outrage at how fans and bands are treated at Kinnick.

    This story is Swiss cheese. Just go to the ******* police. Why are these victims turning to Facebook instead of working with the police? Nothing is adding up here. The most likely thing I can deduce is that the Iowa band wants to attack Barta and throwing ISU under the bus was just a fun side effect.

    I don’t disagree. I think that’s why it’s so frustrating watching my Alma mater get dragged through the mud.

    Agree. Every game I've ever left at Jack Trice, the opposing football team's buses and opposing team's band's buses are parked right on 4th street facing east.... and there are usually about 15-20 police cars sitting between the buses.

    I've never been to a single game where it hasn't been this way.

    This whole Barta being terrible at his job thing is really fun until it starts impacting Iowa State. The way he has handled this has created more questions than answers and is dragging something out for an incredibly long time that could be resolved rather quickly. Pretty much sums things up for his tenure at Iowa.
