    Just met DMac

    Saw him at Love Field airport in Dallas and introduced myself. Chatted for a minute and he couldn't have been nicer. Class act all the way!

    Re: Just met DMac

    I played for him from 97-2001, I wasn't a star player by any stretch, but in 2007 I was walking through the Memphis Airport and heard someone yell my name. I just kept walking thinking I was hearing things because I didn't know anyone in the Memphis area. Then I hear it again so I turn and look and it was DMac.

    It blew my mind that it had been 6 years since he was my coach and he was still able to pick me out walking by in a busy airport.

    He always seemed like a nice guy, but you know what they say about nice guys.

    They hire bad OL coaches? Sorry, DMac was very good for the ISU program and had great integrity. Really wish he would have made a couple better hires near the end of his time at ISU, could have changed the way things turned out. I have only met him once, and he did seem like a great guy.

    True story. At least I'm pretty sure it was Denver and not O'Hare.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    Dmac is another coach that I wish would go to a big time program and do well. He's earned it.

    Re: Just met DMac

    I have a story to share about Dan, that another member of this board told me.

    So this guy, we'll call him jerry, he told usthe first time he meets coach Dan. Jerry and his son Jordan both introduce themselves and Dan chats with them for awhile.

    The next day jerry and Jordan happen to meet Dan again just by chance. Dan says, Hey how ya doing jerry? How ya doing Jordan? Like he's known them forever. Here is Dan mccarney, coach of isu who meets probably a hundred ppl every single day, yet he remembered these two guys.

    Jerry gets all excited and responds with Hey how ya doing coach maccarthy!
