    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    Really?!?! Applaud him?!?! I wouldn't applaude him to save my life. The way he treated our players was ridiculous. We lost Wesley Johnson thanks to him saying Wes' broken foot was nothing and there was no reason he couldn't play. All of the other transfers were probably rubbed the wrong way. There has to be more behind him and the treatment of the players.

    While on live TV, Ford used a vulgar term to describe a private part of the female anatomy, adding that he was “happily married” and “got more than enough to eat at home.”

    With McDermott and Giggles both associated with Creighton, I sooooooo hope we take them out behind the woodshed tonight.

    I won't boo the guy. I'll give him the standard 5 claps, and leave it at that. I do want to know where you are sitting though, because I want to watch this.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    Won't be booing, but I guess I can't blame those that did. Greg took a struggling program and gave it a faceplant into the pavement. Did not do anything to advance it other than bringing in some talent and then either driving them off or under-developing them...along with poor game management.

    It wasn't a good fit at all.

    In the end, he's no longer here.

    I will say, at least booing Greg has more intelligence/common sense than the large amount of random booing every single time a call went against us last night in the football game. I was rather embarrassed. I liked to think our fans were a bit smarter than that.

    Silly me.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    I'm not sure why there is this much hostility towards McD. And yes, I understand that he accomplished absolutely nothing in his time here. This is why I dont think he should be booed. (Applauding still may not be applicable.
    McD wanted to coach at ISU and win. He did the best job that he could. It just wasnt good enough to win in the Big XII. As for the comments that he stole from ISU... give me a break. He was paid according to his contract. No one pays back their salary just because they didnt perform as expected. I know you can find a couple examples of the rare cases.... but would you do it?
    Try to keep in mind that by taking the CU job he saved us from his buyout. He did what was best for all parties involved.
    And as for single handedly running the program into the ground? Look to larry on that one. He came back to Hilton to a hero's welcome!?!
    Really I dont think you should boo a guy who gave his best effort for the ISU cause.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    Not sure I would boo him, but I would be muttering very loudly under my breath. Also, I am not so sure about the nice guy thing. I seem to remember a heated argument during a game back and forth with our previous coach while he was at UNI. Can't remember the exact circumstances, but I said at the time that I hope he is never our coach. I also recall a mic'd up video from our practice a few years back where he said to another coach "run them into the ground" when referring to our players. Seemed a little odd, but I am sure there is a lot of that in all coaching. Don't have inside info though, so can't really judge everything I guess. But he seemed to have a "I am going to show Iowa State what real basketball is" attitude.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    It's all quite simple. The guy made more in 4 years then most of us will make in our lifetime, had an EPIC FAIL, and for that he gets boo'ed.

    The classiest thing to do is be indifferent. There is absolutely no reason to applaud him, and boo-ing just isn't classy.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    McD leaving the way he did was the best thing for ISU. They did not have to buy out a contract and we did not have to watch anymore horrible McD style basketball. It was a win win.

    Agree here. I am not a boo-bird by any means. Last night I did not boo once.

    With McD though, all bets are off.

    Re: McDermott and ISU Fans

    I was once passionate about ISU basketball. Four years of Greg-ball killed that passion more than I thought was possible.

    He is not innocent nor did he give his "best effort". When your best isn't good enough, you find a way do get better. He failed to do that and was completely content with it.
