    We didn't have the money at the time to keep Cael and upgrade the wrestling facilities.( we needed to build a men's basketball and football practice facility first)

    McCartney was going downhill.

    Not the intelligent ones.

    And I have no idea what you are talking about in your first paragraph. McCarney went 4-8 in his final year. And are you really trying to say Bret Meyer was the best QB in ISU history?

    Mac was going downhill? He had a down year. The two years before he won 7 both years. Five winning seasons in 7 years for Mac got the axe. Pollard was an idiot for firing him and ISU has the least amount of wins of all P5 football programs since. Think about that for a second, they have been the bottom of the bottom, less wins than even Kansas.

    Just putting out there what was going on, go back and read what I said about Meyer. Yes they did win 4 games but one was a gift from the refs and the all were close.

    Have to pay up for destination jobs.
    Why was Griesbaum fired & Doyle & coaches responsible for rhabdomyolysis & student athletes almost dying not reprimanded at all?

    Hell of a negotiator. Took a $1.4 million judgement (could have been appealed) and an unknown risk and turned it into a $6.5 million turd. Good job! Bunch of morons in IC.

    I am going to guess that Barta followed the advice of legal counsel on settling and at what amount.

    The big deal for Iowa is to keep it out of the news cycle.

    If $6.5 was the negotiated number, I wonder what the potential exposure cost was.

    Barta is not a very good AD, but the Hawkeyes win enough football and basketball games to keep him and their coaching staffs employed. An honorable man would resign.

    Actually the Meyer award with attourney fee's would have been over $4.3M. Capping at $6.5 all in for both seems reasonable.
