I just wish there could be more pride in the Cyclones instead of pride in self. That is why I think maybe Cyclone fans should speak up. Sometimes, different ideas put together, makes things better for all. Like I said before, it just make entirely way too much sense. The reason for my thread is because I know it's unlikely at best. I just wish we could make it happen. I would really like to see Harrison Barnes a Cyclone. There are thousnads of season tickets to consider. Also, hiring Jake Sullivan would be building the program the right way. Harrison aside, I think we need a former Cylones on the staff. Being stubborn and doing things "my way" didn't work to well for Bill Callihan and Nebraska. And look how they are fixing their mess. Bringing back traditon and people that were part of it. My thoughts are not just random and off the wall. I just don't think the door should be slammed shut on the idea and throw away the key. Again and again, it makes too much sense.
I'll do it!
BTW, I assume his coaching skills are on the offensive side of the ball; he was without a doubt the worst defensive player in Cyclone history. Many times, he didn't even try to stay with his man.
Coaches wear nice clothes all of the time while coaching.
While we didn't have long to talk, I did ask him what he thought about Greg and our program's direction. He feels pretty good about it - knows Greg has had some unforeseen setbacks and thinks he'll get it turned around.
On the actually topic, I doubt we'll ever see Jake on the staff. I've never been a believer in hiring a guy simply because he played here. If anything, it's one reason to perhaps not hire a person. Especially someone like The Mayor. If someone of that prestige was hired and didn't succeed, firing him would be an absolute mess and would certainly divide the fanbase.
Also, who would you kick off our staff now to make room for Jake?
Hasn't Jake been very critical of ISU in the past?
JS was a good player, and he undoubtedly does a good job with his team....but really, if he wanted to be on the ISU coaching staff, I'm sure he knows the routs of communication to let it known.
Where are the ISU players that actually like their alma mater? It seems as though many of the player from recent history leave and don't take any pride in their school?? I know Shirley has let it be known he didn't care for the way he was treated.
Is the Mayor the only guy who likes ISU?
