    Yeah, that was an impossible shot. The curse lives on.

    Did you like that defensive boxout? After the play, Chew nagged on Greg Echineque (sp?) for apparent failure. Yet, it was another player who did not box out. Guess the player (#24) did not hear coach yelling what to do.

    Dan McCarney = Coach Mac.

    Greg McDermott = McValley or Chewbacca.

    Thank you for your cooperation.

    I think he's well past the point of coincedence.

    His players rarely put themselves in position to make key plays at the end of games, and it doesn't matter who those players are.

    Luck is preparation meeting opportunity. Luck is, perhaps, a valid reason to win or lose a game or two. Once it becomes a trend, luck has nothing to do with it.

    Re: Coach Mac Cursed???

    That makes me smile. I don't care if it does hurt our SOS, I love to watch a Chewy coached team lose now. Also, where was the defensive boxout?

    Keep on coaching them up McD!

    That is because he is telling them what to do all the time and they are just playing. How many times did we see coach last year run down the sidelines and yell to tell Marquis where to be on the court for play number 131? At some point, you must let the players figure it out for themselves and go make plays. That is why the bang-bang plays at the end of the game did not go so well. That is why the in bound plays were usually busts last year. That is why he now coaches in the MVC where game scores are lower and you do not have to be so offensively good to win.

    Thank You crayton for taking this loser off of ISU hands. The crayton basketball program is in good hands, trust me.

    You know what? I completely forgot that he coaches for Creighton now. Saw the clip on ESPN this morning and said, "HA! Sucks to be you!" but didn't make the connection. It's amazing what a good coach and a fun team to watch can do...

    Yup.
    If one of the ideas that coaches and all use to sell sports is that they are building character and preparing these guys for life after school, they have to give them some room after preparation to actually make decisions and get things done.

    Nobody is going to live their life with a giant hovering over them telling them what to do. That coaching style doesn't prepare players for anything but a life of micromanagement.

    Good riddance. All he left at ISU was losses and player casualties.

    Re: Coach Mac Cursed???

    Don't worry Creighton. You only have 9 more years to go and you'll only have one or two more "year 1's" to go through. Maybe some school from the Sun Belt will come along and bail you out like you did for ISU. Thanks, btw.

    What page is boxing out on in his playbook? His type of players must not have gotten a chance to cover that yet.

    Re: Coach Mac Cursed???

    Well, to be fair, he was cursed quite a bit last year as well. You probably didn't see it because of the relatively tight profanity filter here at CF.
