    McD trying up-tempo at Creighton?

    McDermott, Jays feeling the need for speed - Omaha.com

    Why couldn't he do that here? Might have won over some better recruits. Whatever though.....good luck to Greg, but I'm perfectly happy with the way things turned out by getting the Mayor to come home!!

    Didn't he say multiple times he wanted to play up tempo here but didn't have the personnel? I'll believe it when I see it.

    I never bought the "didn't have the personnel" line. He just doesn't know how to coach up tempo and that's ok. Many coaches are successful at a slow game but the carrot on a stick "we'll go up-tempo" got really old quickly.

    Thanks Creighton.

    How can you do uptempo with 8,000 plays in the book?

    That was a bunch of crap. He just didn't know how to play up tempo. He had a bunch of guys who would have been great playing up tempo.

    Colvin
    Garrett
    Staiger
    Scotty
    Gilstrap
    Brackins
    Dendy

    Imagine if we would have had that team under Fred. I believe 100% that they would have made the NCAA tourney under Fred and co.

    Re: McD trying up-tempo at Creighton?

    Just his latest attempt to try to tell recruits and fans what he thinks they want to hear. As others have said, I'll wait to see it actually happen. I'm so glad that that guy is no longer our coach. What a dark, dark period for ISU b-ball.

    Dendy wouldn't have been. He was poorly conditioned. Garrett and Colvin were born to be up tempo. Colvin had so much potential. It's just to bad he left before Greg was gone. He would be a star under Fred. Didn't he want to come back when Fred was hired? Gilstrap, as good as he was(except his ball handling), would have been even better in the up tempo.

    Rumor was he did and so did Dendy. Apparently Fred passed on both.

    Colvin nor DG could finish. Lucca was out of condition. Scotty had mono. Gilstrap couldn't handle it. Brackins would have been fantastic, and Dendy was WAY outta condition. Hamilton would've been better than Dendy. DG could run forever as could Colvin, but Colvin turned it over WAY too much to be a quality uptempo player.

    McD missed his true calling years ago. He could have been a master videographer specializing in claymation or stop-motion video shorts.
