    Creighton a "legit sleeper"

    Andy Katz seems to really like their chances this year. I'd enjoy seeing Greg do well.

    I would enjoy Greg doing well too. Mainly to keep the future wife happy.

    I could just see it now; Blue Jays gets back into the dance and McD is named COY for the Valley.

    I would enjoy Greg doing terrible... and if you think about it, it's probably guaranteed to happen (unless they have great assistant coaches)

    Would have enjoyed it more if he had done well at ISU instead of burying us...

    Actually if you think about it, he has a very good chance of having a great team and going to the NCAA tournament. He did it 3 times at UNI and he is back in that league with great talent and the best player in the league (his son)

    Obviously he wasn't the most important cog in that machine, since UNI didn't skip a beat when he left

    outside of those seasons he has done terrible everywhere he's been, and I don't see any reason to think it would be any different this year, regardless of the players

    I hope he loses every game--except maybe the iowa game.

    I agree. I can see why some ISU fans would still support GMAC since he is no longer here and he was in general a pretty nice guy. That being said... I simply can't forgive and forget the hatchet job he performed on the ISU basketball program. ISU basketball was appointment tv for me growing up and attending games was a special event and GMAC turned it into something I couldn't even stomach watching for 5 minutes. I will always resent him for that.

    It's not obvious. He was the head coach and he turned a pathetic program (which at the time UNI was) around and into a top MVC program. He couldn't do that at ISU but I have no doubts that he will be successful at Creigton. Good for him too.

    It's no different than Dana Altman. Success at mid major and none at high level job.

    Sounds like predicting creighton's season would be a good cybookie event

    Takes too much energy to **** on Greg. We have Fred now and as far as Im concerned the Greg/ISU years never really happened. So I wish Greg the best in his CU deal.
