    Scholarship situation when McCarney took over?

    During his tenure was Walden able to overcome the scholarship limits imposed from the Criner sanctions and have a full roster on hand? I'd guess he did not, because you have to believe a program with a full compliment of players does not go 0-10-1.

    I don't recall when scholarship limits were reduced to 85....I want to say 1992.

    At what point in his tenure was Dan playing with a full deck? Of players that is. Im curious to dig up a little info on the early days of Mac at ISU, and just what he had at his disposal during that time.

    Re: Scholarship situation when McCarney took over?

    I can't remember whether it was Walden or Mac who got nailed with annual schollies going from "unlimited" to, I think, 30--but that didn't help. Pretty sure that Mac was hit with the reduction to 85, but that didn't matter for a couple of years--since he only had something like 45 returnees on the team when he took over.

    Of course, only a small handful (4-5) of those 45 were quality DI players--which included Troy Davis.




    Part of this fanbase is like the parable of the blind men and the elephant.

    Who knew?

    Walden went from 6-5 in 1989 to o'fer's. I don't think scholarship reductions were the main issue.
