Yet another bonehead move by an iowa athletic director fred was a great person and a great player, but your asking a guy to coach a division one conference that sent more than half its scools to the NCAA tourmament nwho has never coached before. Good God people what 4 or 5 star recruit in their right mind is going to commit to a program where the coach has no experience? Thats k like asking a guy who's been on a thousand flights to now fly the plane plan on another 4 yrs of bad basketball maybe its pollard ISU needs to get rid of

Beleive you me Fred has been coaching plenty as his ISU coaches said when he was even in college and his 10 years in the NBA. He has contacts with college coaches and NBA coaches and personnel around the globe. He knows how to play ball the right way, will motivate the team has always been well liked and respected where ever he went and his players won't have to worry about where they stand with him.

He has been coached by some of the best college and NBA coaches in the country and you'd better believe he was learning all he could of what works and what doesn't from every one of them.

Way to go Jamie Pollard. Now you are paying Nick Nurse for a two year contract when he is back getting paid by the Iowa Energy. Hey Pollard, make him stick around Ames in some capacity for two years or make him void the contract and save the university probably 350 grand.

I read that Nurse nor Grayer had neither one yet signed their contracts and Nurse is headed back to the Energy.

this is a Hawkeye state, only a few outside a 40 mile radius of Ames care about the clowns. They should be dropped to a D2 school anyways, no baseball, don't belong. Screw the clowns and their pathetic fan base. Only Clown fans can be happy about an average season where they won a bowl game against the mighty Minnesota Golden Goophers, GO HAWKS!!!!
