    Doug McDermott All-American

    Our 2011-12 college hoops preseason All-America team, by Mike Miller - College basketball- NBC Sports


    Third team. You people still think he couldn't have played in the big 12?


    The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... people will come Ray. People will most definitely come.

    Many thought he could. It was his basketball idiot father/former ISU coach that wouldn't let him due to the fact his *** was going to get kicked out.

    Re: Doug McDermott All-American

    I always thought he would be a good player to have at ISU, but not at the cost of keeping his dad around here (no disrespect intended, as I think Greg is a good coach, but it obviously didn't work here).

    Re: Doug McDermott All-American

    I'm fairly confident that his dad just didn't want to bring him into the situation in Ames.

    This is the right answer. He knew there was at least a 50/50 shot that he would be fired during the time that Doug would be here, so it makes sense to not bring him in for that.

    1. Who are "You people"?

    2. I'd still like to see him grind out a season in the Big 12 before rushing to judgment on how wonderful he might be.

    3. It was his dad who kept him away from ISU- probably because the Sr McDermott realized that he himself was a big fraud who was taking a paycheck from ISU while running the program into the ground with his incompetence. He could see the writing on the wall.

    Re: Doug McDermott All-American

    I never got the sense from our fanbase that he couldn't have made it in the Big 12.

    His dad steered him away because he was already looking to jump or knew he was going to get canned shortly.

    Re: Doug McDermott All-American

    He is a really good player and I'd be happy to have him, but I'm not sure if his body would hold up to Big 12 play. I wish we could have found out.

    At the time the coaches honestly thought he couldn't handle the Big 12. They might rethink that now, but that's what they thought at the time.

    I'll bet my paycheck this month he doesn't end up an All-American.

    I like that article. Is Creighton truly to become an "elite program" (in the Mo Valley) this year?

    They are the favorite to win the MVC this year.

    Uh, none of us people had the option of offering him a big 12 scholarship. His idiot father did.

    Also, he gets to play heavyweights such as Bradley, Evansville, Illinois State and Drake twice a year.

    Makes you wonder if Greg was not looking around for another job when Doug decided to go UNI. Hmmmmm.

    All signs do far point to that direction. Expect a lot from them. They will be good. They could be KU dragon slayers or OU zombie crushers in the NCAA.
