Question -- if Bolt/McFarland have 2 year contracts -- well they've been here 2 years already so . . .
Did they have 3 year contracts, were they extended by a year, did they have 1 and then last year get a 2 year extension . . .
Or am I just royally confused?
Or is it something to do with "fiscal year"? As in their "2 year" contract was actually "2 years and so many months to make it to a normal fiscal year break".
Replacing Chizzlestick with Rhoads has not yet led to an increase in revenue. If we're lucky, we'll get back to where we were in Chizzlestick's first year.
Replacing McCarney with Chizzlestick led to an increase of about 3,000 season tickets that lasted one year.
Replacing Morgan with McDermott led to a decrease in revenue. Season ticket sales and attendance have declined in every year of McDermott's tenure.
Replacing Eustachy with Morgan led to no increase in revenue.
Replacing the wrestling coach - no increase.
Replacing the gymanstics coach - no increase.
Replacing the soccer coach - no increase.
Replacing the cross-country coach - no increase.
Replacing the track-and-field coach - no increase.
Replacing the women's golf coach - no increase.
Replacing the tennis coach - no increase.
Replacing the softball coach - no increase.
It looks like I left out the increases in revenue because they don't exist. ISUAlum is correct -- we've invested $5 million in "upgrading" our coaching staffs and our ROI is negative.

Either tell us how a $13 million increase doesn't exist, or check your facts before spewing off more BS.
Are companies most profitable when they first start-up, or after a few years of operation? Gotta pay if you want to play and our athletic department has to build up from being ran like a non-profit to a Division 1 school. Coaching, talent, and facilities were all sub-par, it's nice to actually show signs of a big-time school again. Now for the wins to come, and oh yes, they will.
I am shaking my head at reading posts that suggest we leave the big twelve!! What kind of fan are you really? Did your dog die or something? I agree leaving would be a dumb move to go to a lesser conference?? What the hell?? Support this program for ****** sakes. Well upgrades in facilities is just terrible how dare JP do such a thing to help out our two main programs:jimlad:
Better facilities= better talent= victories. The foundation has been layed now the coaches and JP know HOPE will no longer sell so I see victories for ISU.
