Amen to that!
JP now has everyone in place, IMO, to take ISU to the top. The key is that he's finally got coaches that are all extremely passionate about Iowa State University. That trumps everything else IMO.
Rhoads, GMac, Fennelly, and Jackson are all extremely happy to be here, and I think all would love to be here for a long time. That is HUGE!
There's an article on the front page of the CR Gazette's sports page today talking about why Jason Bohannon committed to Wisky 4 years ago instead of Iowa... and his number one reason was because he felt Steve Alford wasn't going to be there for 4 years at Iowa, and he thought Bo Ryan wouldn't go anywhere. He could see that Bo Ryan loved Wisconsin and that Alford didn't really want to be at Iowa very long.
I think a ton of young athletes will see the same thing with our coaches. How many recruits really felt that Chizik was going to stay at ISU for a long time?
I hope JP keeps these coaches on board for as long as possible. The best thing for ISU right now is stability. I'm thankful for every single one of our coaches at ISU!
