Be prepared to justify your contributions to the program, he will have the numbers in his response....................
Here's a thought ..... Pollard won't tell anybody on the board how to do their job and nobody here should think that they know more about Pollard's job than he does.
[QUOTE=joefrog;1662427]Well then he is aware there are problems. All around outside of Hilton is a mess. Concrete cracks and basically falling apart in places, even the stairs. Hand railings look like crap. Been like this for years, and it is very evident.[/QUOTE]
I don't think you understand that has nothing to do with JP. You should be talking to FP&M on campus if you have an issue with that.
I didn't tell Pollard..."Fire Mac." I gave him my opinion. It wasn't a long email, just a quick note telling how I feel. Will it change the state of Iowa State athletics? Nope. Will he know my opinion, absolutely. It's only one email but I've done my part.
I am honestly stunned the man still has a job and so is everyone I talk to.
I'm a freshman here at Iowa State, and I just wanted to personally ask you what your take was on our basketball program. After the latest defections by Justin Hamilton and Dominique Buckley, I am reconsidering re-upping my Cyclone Alley season tickets. I am not trying to insult you or your program, this is an honest inquiry. Honestly, I'm just a poor college student not wanting to pay another $100, plus another $30 for the "Cyclone Alley" distinction, to watch my Cyclones whip teams like Chicago State and Idaho State, but then flop in conference play.
I have to know what is going on within the program, why do players keep leaving? Not just our back-ups, but our starting players. I have to know why we have lost so many players the last few years, and how you or McDermott plan to stop this from happening.
I have to ask because going to Hilton and watching my team lose is getting harder and harder to do. Why pay $130 to do something I barely enjoy anymore?
AlleyAddict - Thats not a bad email. Came across with genuine concern and not smarmy *****-ing. Well done. Pollard probably would respond to that better than some others.
I emailed Pollard the day McDermott was hired. I told him I'd never buy a basketball ticket as long as he was coach. He replied that they'd have to win the Big 12 without me.
I was very disappointed with the hire and sent the email out of anger. I shouldn't have sent it and felt like an *** the next day. I hate the hire even more now but still wished I hadn't sent it.
